"a haunting first novel by a former naval officer, Trevor Wood"

A few days later a student nurse appeals for help finding her father, a university lecturer and environmental campaigner who hasn’t been seen for more than two weeks. As the ex-serviceman is drawn reluctantly into a murder investigation, Wood slowly reveals the extent of his PTSD, neither sanitising nor condemning him. It’s an impressive debut, offering unsentimental insights into the everyday lives of people who end up on the streets.
