richard has just returned from Italy where, the economic climate had changed dramatically leaving him unemployed and now after travelling he was almost broke.
his promise to return to an old university friend was uppermost in his mind as he hitched a lift towards Edinburgh. his lift dropped him off in moffat where he made friends with a young woman who ran the vegetable stall in the local market. this chance meeting had a dramatic effect on his life. several times his life was in danger as he was placed in the firing line of local loan sharks and hard men and as a result he ended up in front of the procurator fiscal at an inquest which could result in him being accused of murder. a small article in a national newspaper brings his name to the attention of a Solicitor from ambleside who quickly speeds up to moffat. the solicitor hands over to him a journal which sets richard on a trail to find relatives of a person he never knew but the eventual outcome was nothing like he expected it to be and was littered with unforeseen revelations.
