From the author of The Devil’s Feathercomes a haunting psychological thriller about a scarred Iraq war veteran whose physical trauma may reflect the inner turmoil of a killer. Somewhere in the endless, deadly desert between Basra and Baghdad, Lieutenant Charles Acland’s convoy was attacked. Recovering in the hospital, Charles is crippled by migraines and suspicious of his doctors. He grows uncharacteristically aggressive, particularly against women. Rejecting cosmetic surgery, he moves to London. There he sinks into a quagmire of guilt and paranoia—until an outburst of irrational, vicious anger brings him to the attention of the local police, who are investigating three recent murders. Now under suspicion, Charles is forced to confront his issues before it’s too late, but the shadowy forces working against him—or in him—could be more than he can overcome.

    " Walters' plots are so psychologically interesting that the mystery is almost a minor player. I listened to the CD version by Simon Vance in the car. It was so engaging I kept forgetting where I was supposed to be going. "
