Twenty years ago, Darius Odenkirk retreated behind the walls of Crecy House. The public spotlight upon the multi-billionaire dimmed, though the scandals that dogged his life were not entirely forgotten.
Presented with the opportunity of a lifetime, Joshua Wishaw, a wannabe investigative journalist, travels to Odenkirk’s home to obtain an exclusive interview.
Unnerved by the sinister atmosphere of the house, and the undisguised resentment of the servants, Wishaw suffers a conflict of conscience when Odenkirk reveals how he got away with murder.
Set against the backdrop of the turmoil of the closing years of the sixteenth century, Turn of the Tide follows the fortunes of a fictional family trapped at the centre of a notorious historic feud. Known as the Ayrshire Vendetta, it began in the 15th century and wasn’t finally resolved until the latter part of the 17th, the Cunninghames and Montgomeries dubbed the ‘Montagues and Capulets’ of Ayrshire.
