Seafield is a seaside town on the north-west coast of Britain. Once a flourishing holiday resort it’s been sidelined by cheap flights to continental Europe and increased visitor expectations. Now it’s a tired, disheveled looking old-fashioned place. In this context the town is polarised by the river that runs through it; old money to the south and rough poverty to the north.
Frank Wilson is a product of his street-smart mother and his upbringing north of the river. When she dies he goes to live with his grandparents in the south. Old habits die hard though and Frank is soon drifting back north in search of the edgy vitality of a dangerous life.
