Hugo Soskin, son of best-selling author on Rennes-le-Chateau Henry Lincoln, has no time for the French Pyrenean village and its mysteries. He is fed up with the whole subject of how a nineteenth-century priest came to be a millionaire overnight and why he built so many bizarre clues into his church and his home. But when he and his wife decide to drive an old camper van to Spain to start a new life, they can't resist a tiny peek en route at the village that enthralls and captivates so many.After agreeing to work on a nearby campsite for a season, Soskin starts to absorb the culture and rhythms of life in south-west France, where working in the shadow of Rennes-le-Chateau exposes him to loony treasure hunters and conspiracy theorists, all of whom assume he has inside knowledge that could help them crack the mystery and find the hidden gold. If this isn't bad enough, Soskin's father arrives accompanied by a group of fanatical 'Rennies', including the punk rocker 'Rat Scabies', needing his assistance in touring places of interest and wanting to know Soskin's own theory about the mysteries of Rennes-le-Chateau: surely he knows more than he is telling? Will he reveal all?
