Summary
D begins in Canada, in the winter of 1834, when Private Benjamin Burman is on the run to America. But the British Army does not suffer deserters. It hunts down their man, tries, shackles and imprisons him in a creaking hulk on Portsmouth Harbour, then banishes him to Van Diemen's Land. There he is assigned as gentleman's servant to George Frankland, surveyor-general (and host to Charles Darwin on his visit to Hobart Town), and ultimately granted a pardon. Yet though Benjamin's sentence is over, his punishment is not done, for he is forever to be reminded of his disgrace by a thick black tattoo. It takes the biggest tragedy of his life to set him free
