The exciting new novel by Kitty Sewell
published on July 18, 2019
Seventeen-year-old Mimi has joined her brother Sebastian, an engineering prodigy, and his diving-instructor fiancèe Eva in Gibraltar. Sebastian is leading a spectacularly innovative project, building a new city to project from the sheerest face of the Rock.
The three of them struggle to adjust to their new life together, discovering that Gibraltar is a place of mixed tradition and mistrust of outsiders. Below the façade of Britishness is a disquieting layer of peculiarities and mystique.
Mimi enters a romantic entanglement with an ex-priest twice her age: in Sebastian’s eyes a dangerous predator.
Eva is hiding a secret that might endanger not just her relationship, but her very life.
Sebastian is torn between a compulsion for greatness and an urge to rescue his sister from the clutches of his nemesis. He hunts the caves and tunnels of the Rock for answers until a violent death shatters their world.
From the Rock there is no escape.
