After ten years training to become a Jesuit priest, Inigo Boscabel loses his faith just months before his ordination. To ease his mind, he takes a three-day hike along the Suffolk coast accompanied by his best friend, Wellington, a huge English mastiff. While looking for somewhere to camp for the night, Inigo stumbles and sprains his ankle. He limps into a remote coastal hamlet called Hobbswood where he is viewed with suspicion by the villagers until he is befriended by the local doctor, Lucas Fairweather. But all is not as it seems. Why do the villagers fear the big man who lives alone just outside the hamlet? What was the terrible event that happened three hundred years ago that still casts a shadow over the descendants of those involved, and why does Inigo get caught up in a conflict that could destroy most of England?
