The suicide of the black sheep of the family at a wedding party in Cornwall, England, drives Chris Napier into his clan's dark past, where he discloses more than one skeleton, including child abuse and old-fashioned revenge

Blackwell North Amer
At a wedding party in Cornwall, Chris Napier, the bride's uncle, is shocked to recognize a drunken, disheveled, and evidently distraught intruder. Chris hasn't seen his childhood friend Nicky Lanyon for more than thirty years, not since Nicky's father was hanged for the murder of Joshua Carnoweth - Chris's great-uncle and the man behind the Napier family's inherited affluence. Nicky's plea for his father's innocence is underscored by the method by which he chooses to commit suicide at the conclusion of the day's celebrations.
Chris is now compelled to test the truth of his friend's conviction and soon realizes that his own understanding of the events surrounding the murder amounts to none at all. The conduct of more than one member of his own family begins to dog his hesitant footsteps into a past slowly darkening with the shadows of corruption, greed, lies, child abuse, and good old-fashioned revenge.
