(From the publisher):
Major Johnson has never won any distinctions. Steady, methodical, he has served in the army faithfully, and now in retirement he sets about village life in the same unobtrusively methodical way. Gradually, the Major begins to feel that a new life is beginning for him...
But beneath the tranquil surface of a country village the paths of thieves and lovers, murderers and innocents, liars and gossips all converge -- and the point at which they meet marks a tragedy. And for the Major, the entire pattern of his life is irrevocably reversed.
