The title poem of this collection chronicles the eighteenth century trial of Captain John Bolton for the murder of his apprentice girl, Elizabeth Rainbow, in a small village in the north of England where Paul Munden has spent most of his life. The poem's reflection on the life writing process is complemented by other shadowings, glimpses of strange complicities and dark pastoral musings.
