The rainforests of Borneo - magnificent, ancient. Larry Mahon engineers the roads that take the trucks to the great trees for an international logging company, watched silently by the nomadic Penan. Until a Penan boy is killed at a human barricade, just before Larry Mahon returns home to Derry, a city of family and soldiers. Forever rootless, he is forced to recognise the distance between himself and his family, between those who resist, in whatever form, and those who avoid. For Larry Mahon, the killing of the boy brings the day when he can avoid things no longer and he must face himself, his family and the world.
