From the cover: “Huntsman Asher Smith spares the life of a half-dead fox-cub and rears it with his hounds. He could not have foreseen at the time the consequences of his act and its part in the shaping of his own destiny. For a special bond develops between the cub, Tag, and the foxhound, Merlin — ‘two animals were born to be enemies, yet had grown so close that they were in the process of merging, one into the other’. This deep knowledge of each other’s ways means that after they are separated Merlin becomes the best hound in the pack and Tag becomes famous as ‘The Fox They Cannot Kill’. For to them each hunt is a reunion and a continuation of their early games. But for the pack and for Asher it can be no game…”
