Orphaned Lucy Marsh climbs into the back of an old army truck and is whisked off to the woods north of London - a land haunted by the past, where lost souls and monsters conceal themselves in the trees. In a sunlit clearing she meets the 'funny men', a quartet of disfigured ex-soldiers named after Dorothy's companions in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Here are the loved and the damaged, dark forests and darker histories, and the ever-present risk of discovery and violent retribution.

Xan Brooks' stunning debut is heartbreaking, disturbing and redemptive.
