Sold out

In the Company of Madness

  • In the Company of Madness

Crime and punishment define the lives of soldier John Cuthbertson, prisoner Alexander Pearce and priest Phillip Conolly. By fate, choice or circumstance these three men, born 18 miles apart, are transported to Van Diemen’s Land where they act as captor, convict and confessor to one another.

Each of them attempts to carve out lives in a new world that ominously resembles the old, and in the process of seeking promotion, penitence and peace, they are forced to confront the forces that have brought them together, and set them so far apart.
