Crushed Shells and Mud

Ben Musgrave

Nick Hern Books

“Musgrave writes so beautifully: these intricate, intimate moments—psychological dances of persuasion, rivalry and cruelty.” —WhatsOnStage

“A sensitive portrait of a teenage love triangle…the nuances of relationshios are finely rendered.” —Evening Standard

England trembles in the grip of a devastating epidemic. In a remote coastal village, quiet Derek waits for life to really begin. Then Lydia arrives. She burns brightly, but she is hiding something.

When Derek discovers her secret, they are both propelled into a strange new world of conflicted desire and dangerous loyalties, where terrifying forces test their courage and humanity.
