Returning from conflict, John is plunged into his own dark war, trying to keep his family from falling apart.

But just as things start to look up, shadowy figures from his past threaten to bring it all crashing down once more.

Review by The Word is Out – Alyson’s Reviews (FB), “This is a great thriller, with plenty of action in places and touching on just about every human emotion possible. There are some very well portrayed individuals, my favourites being DI Martin Blaney and Judy.”
