"Thomas’s new novel displays the same high energy as his debut, Firewatching."

Thomas’s version of Sheffield is a multicultural city where affluent foreign students pass homeless people on the streets, while metal detectorists try to make money out of its heritage.

It is one of these treasure hunters who kicks off the new novel, when he unearths a recently buried body. A macabre historical detail — two Roman coins in the corpse’s eye sockets — intrigues Tyler. Thomas’s new novel displays the same high energy as his debut, Firewatching.
