From the Publisher

The new novel, set in the UK, from the author of the Impac Prize-winning bestseller The Twin.
 
A Dutch woman, a university English lecturer researching the work of Emily Dickinson, rents a farm in remote, rural Wales.  When she arrives, there are ten geese living on the farm, but one by one they disappear. Perhaps it''s the work of a local fox. The reason for her move abroad gradually becomes clear: her husband is trying to track her down. Having confessed to an affair with one of her students in Amsterdam, she has quietly fled to Wales from a situation that had become unbearable. Her husband contacts the police and teams up with a detective to go and look for her. They board the ferry to Hull on Christmas Eve. But in the meantime, the woman increasingly seems to be losing her grip on the situation. Gerbrand Bakker has made the territories of isolation, inner turmoil and the solace offered by the natural world his own. The Detour is a gripping and subtle new novel.
