There are strange folktales surrounding the brig Nymph of Whitby, wrecked in the devastating hurricane of 1871, against the rocks of Sandö, north of Smögen, on the Swedish west coast. The crew was rescued by Smögen fishermen, except a young apprentice who miraculosly survived by climbing the rig. This young apprentice has left an equally puzzling legacy behind him.

A group of schoolmates with roots in Smögen decide to turn stones and canvas, only to discover the truth also involves their own elders. The probe unfolds a great historical calamity – nigh lost in the mist of time – which once brought down a famous Yorkshire shipping empire. Odd visits escalate into a spate of artefact thefts, and only by local knowledge and rapid action can they prevent a treasure hunting syndicate from reaching its goal. 

At the centre of the story is the ultimate journey of the brig Nymph, set in historical Yorkshire, Elsinore, Hanko, St Petersburg and Sotenäs.
