Publisher Description

From the author of The Devil's Feather comes 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.

Ellie Slaughter ,

Awesome.

This book is the best books I have read in a long time, I finished it over the span of three days while I was in Orlando for vacation, that's how intense this book was and how badly I wanted to finish. The characters are likable and once when you think you know who the killer is, it takes you for a spin and everything you know needs to be rethought. The book really makes you have a soft spot for Charles, with his background and the situation he currently finds himself in.

All in all, a wonderful book.
