War broke his spirit. Can he save his tormented soul from hungry inner demons?
The South Atlantic Coast, 1982. Royal Marine Fletcher Layne never expected to see combat. Enlisting despite his father’s vehement protests, he figures Argentina wouldn’t dare challenge the Falkland Islands’ mighty British sovereignty. But as all hell breaks loose over the territorial dispute, he’s devastated when a bullet misses him and kills a young comrade.
Returning home with a heavy heart plagued by guilt, Fletcher resents any celebration of his heroism and his parent’s disapproval. And as the traumatized survivor wrestles with two imagined voices of nagging conscience, he fears not even the gentle touch of a kind nurse will get him through to a peaceful tomorrow.
Can he gain ground over his anguish before the darkness drags him down forever?
