Polla grinned. ‘A real spaghetti town … it’s strung out, and wherever you want to be is always at the other end. I just hope there’re some saucy bits in between.’


Coburn Kenlin is still trying to come to terms with his divorce, as well as adjusting to the new environment he moved to. Gone are the big city ways and the material security provided by a high-paying position in an advertising company. In its place is rented accommodation in a tiny hamlet at the coast, from where he is struggling to make a living as a marketing consultant to businesses in the nearby town.

Unbeknown to Coburn is the fact that his own father, with whom he had himself suffered a similar situation, is about to make his appearance and unsettle what little routine and calm he enjoys.
