Summary
In 1859, ex-East India Company smuggler Merrick Tremayne is trapped at home in Cornwall after sustaining a serious injury. On the sprawling, crumbling grounds of the old house, something is wrong; a statue moves, his grandfather's pines explode and his brother accuses him of madness. When the India Office recruits Merrick for an expedition to fetch quinine from deep within Peru, he knows it's a terrible idea. Nearly every able-bodied expeditionary who's made the attempt has died and he can barely walk. But Merrick is desperate to escape everything at home so he sets off, against his better judgment, for a tiny mission colony on the edge of the Amazon where a salt line on the ground separates town from forest. Anyone who crosses is killed by something that watches from the trees, but somewhere beyond the salt are the quinine woods. Surrounded by local stories of lost time, cursed woods and living rock, Merrick must separate truth from fairytale and find out what befell the last expeditions, why the villagers are forbidden to go into the forest and what has happened to the young priest, Raphael, who visited Peru many decades before
