From the cover: “Following the loss of his father in the Hindenburg disaster of 1937, Tom Lynch is brought up in Yorkshire, at the Robert Southwell School on the edge of Ilkley Moor. His guardian is Patrick Grimshaw, a man obsessed with the English Reformation and its consequences for those attached to the old faith, who did not necessarily wish to be reformed. It is Grimshaw who inducts Tom into the mysterious Delaquay Society — an organisation based on the works of Alfred Delaquay, a book illustrator of considerable genius and perversity. As the manner of Tom’s life begins to exact a heavy toll, so the Society takes its own terrible revenge, and Tom Lynch comes finally to understand who he really is and where he came from.”
