Claypole is not "a large man." He is a fat man. A fat man with thin limbs, like an egg with tentacles. And life is not going well. He's alone, idle, and on the brink of a medical crisis when a childhood acquaintance makes him an offer he can't understand, can't talk about, but ultimately can't refuse. A week later, he finds himself in rural Scotland, plunged into an eccentric community at war over a wind farm. Claypole is supposed to be a backer, but he has no idea what side he's on, even though it may earn him a lot of money. All he wants is to look like a hero in front of the woman with the bright blue eyes who brought him here. To do so he must run the gauntlet of a family with many dark secrets, some dangerous hippies and their hallucinogenic potions, and the wilderness itself with all its threats and dangers.
