After Five Years In Exile His Presence Is Required At The Funeral Of Patriarch Joe Murston, And Even Though The Last Time Stu Saw The Murstons He Was Running For His Life, Staying Away Might Be Even More Dangerous Than Turning Up. An Estuary Town North Of Aberdeen, Stonemouth, With It's Five Mile Beach, Can Be Beautiful On A Sunny Day.
