This is a challenging and provocative new novel from Carnegie-nominated author Bernard Ashley.

When shipwrecked 'Pax' is discovered by an elderly man searching for his only grandson and the heir to his business, the two form an unlikely but powerful bond. But as Pax regains his memories, haunting truths and guilt-ridden deception reveal that their destinies have been long intertwined by a silent betrayal that could yet tear them apart.

From the terrors of people-trafficking in Smokescreen, Bernard Ashley delves into the murky waters of the arms trade for Solitaire's shipwrecks, secrets and shocking discoveries, that will have readers gripped from the start.
