Over ten rainy nights, Thomas, an ex-barge-man who used to be skipper of his own boat, walks the muddy fields of the land-locked German interior and remembers the events that lost him his home, his boat, and his livelihood. In this novel, Thomas remembers childhood, his first love, and the warning of his grandfather: Beware the dark company.
