Set on the island of Mallorca, The Rocks is a double love story told in reverse. Opening in 2005 with a dramatic event that seems to seal the mystery of two lives, the story moves backwards in time, unravelling over sixty years amid the olive groves and bars, the boats and poolside parties, the lives and relationships of two intertwined families within an expat community of endearing and flawed characters.
As one story is revealed, another sweeter one, a love story of a couple from the younger generation, arises in the wake of their elder's failures.
The Rocks is a darkly comic, bittersweet, finally heartbreaking novel that slips back in time to reveal the shocking incident that marked and altered these lives for ever.

"Peter Nichols' wondrous novel The Rocks is clearly the odyssey he was born to undertake, the book he was destined to write." (Richard Russo)
