His last novel, That Summer, sold over 70,000 copies 'Greig is a master of his material and unfurls his canvas with meticulous care...tense and poignant' Sunday Telegraph 'Big, rich and as ambitious as any novel by a Scots writer that I have read in years' Allan Massie, Scotsman 'Recuperating from a severe brain injury at his mother's home, Edward Mackay discovers a small box labelled "Penang". In it are mementoes of the father he never knew...the settings flip between the heat and lushness of Thirties Penang and the wild beauty of Orkney today. With his poet's eye, Greig brings both brilliantly to life' Choice

'an island-hoping affair, alternating between present-day Orkney and 1930s Penang.'
