The novel was dramatised for radio and broadcast 28th. April, 1958.
A letter from Faber, 23rd. July 1965, confirmed that the copyright had reverted to Gunn.
The R.W. of the dedication is Robert Wotherspoon.
The action of the book is set in the countryside near Brae, Gunn's home from 1938 - 1948.
Some of the themes explored in this novel were foreshadowed in the short story "Birdsong at Evening": The Cornhill | London | September 1926 | pp. 298 - 314.
An exciting thriller of murder and a manhunt. Against that background Gunn introduces us to some memorable people, archetypal characters, and explores motivation and morality in more than purely legal terms.
