Leslie Markland is a loner who winds up living on a barge with his little dog Harry by the Essex river estuary in Wivenhoe. Cruelly denied his inheritance by his less than loving father, Leslie sets out to gain revenge by creating an heir to his former home on the Markland Estate in Yorkshire.
But just when Leslie is tantalisingly close to securing his revenge, his plan threatens to unravel when a damaging climax ends in a prison sentence. Leslie has plenty of time on his hands to contemplate his actions.
Was he morally right to do what he did? How could the events that unfolded as a consequence ever create a happy ending? As his time spent at Her Majesty s pleasure drags on, Leslie puts pen to paper and tells his extraordinary tale.
