Peter Firth reads the powerful new novel by award-winning author James Robertson.

Alan Tealing, an academic based in Scotland, has spent two decades conducting his own investigation into the bombing of an airplane in which his wife and daughter were murdered. Acting on information he's received from a former secret service agent, he's travelled to Australia to confront the trial's key witness: Martin Parroulet. He's proving elusive, however, so Tealing has located Parroulet's wife and engineered a meeting with her instead.
