This is a novel in the guise of a classic 'whodunit'. It's a story
about what makes us human and about how we bring both love and pain
to our family relationships. Fossil artist weaves matters of the
heart and mind into a compelling story of one family, which
traverses time and place, from the East End of London in the early
1900s to great archaeological sites in Africa. Powerful insights
into the evolution of the human soul, of our expression of love and
war, and of art and language, all emerge in this great story of our
constant search for personal understanding. Russ Codron, a
well-meaning optician, has dark secrets that not even his wife has
been able to dig out of him. But when he is confronted with the
mummified remains of his fossil-hunter father, in the pages of the
Sunday Times, the chaos of his past crashes into the stability of
his present. Needing desperately to find out what really happened
to his father, he begins a quest that will lead him to the very
core of the biggest scientific fraud of all time - the forgery of
the Piltdown Man fossils - and to a discovery what it really means
to be able to love.
