Jon Michaels – a divorced and fatigued editor living a nondescript life in North London – receives a phone call informing him that his uncle has been found dead in his caravan on Canvey Island. Dismissed from his job only the day before, Jon reluctantly agrees to sort through his uncle’s belongings. What follows is a quixotic week on Canvey as Jon unfolds a disturbing secret, ever more enchanted by the island – its landscape and its atmosphere.
