(From the publisher):
When Philip Winter was accused of rape, he was innocent, a victim of his accuser's paranoia when he rejected her advances. Although acquitted, neither Philip's family nor his employers accepted the verdict. Unemployed and unemployable, Philip disappeared, a suspected suicide.
But Philip has merely abandoned his once ordered life and is now part of the anonymous homeless, adrift with other innocent and not-so-innocent outcasts. Forming an unlikely alliance with Denis Smith, a naive, illiterate youth involved with a group of animal rights activists, Philip struggles to survive.
Unknown to both Philip and Denis, their immediate destinies are being manipulated by someone who is using the environmental movement to settle a very personal score, and with apalling inevitability Philip is drawn into the violent machinations of an obsessed woman...
