This is the story of weatherman Giles Doughty. Giles does not wear sensible ties and knitted jumpers like other weathermen. Rather, his life is a whirlwind - of romance, sex and decadence. But then one day he is shocked out of his self-absorption by the reappearance of his childhood friend Stella Murdoch. Stella, who disappeared suddenly so many years ago. As the novel develops and darkens, Giles is forced into an exploration of his childhood, and of cruelty. He has to face what he has always tried to escape - a mystery, at the heart of which lies Stella. A confession, a journey, an enquiry - embracing the great storm of October 1987, murderous doings, and eccentric characters - this brilliant first novel from Tim Binding is bound to thrill and delight all its readers.
