IN A PLACE OF PEACE
DURING A TIME OF WAR
THE UNFORGIVEN WILL NOT GO FORGOTTEN.
In a rural hamlet where the majority of men are overseas to fight Hitler’s Nazi war machine, someone is killing veterans of the first world war.
Wartime Special Constable ‘Lame’ Eddie Sommers, a crippled rich boy and the butt of derision, is doing his best to fill a uniform he believes in, yet wears too large. Inexperienced and out of his depth, he turns to a former detective and veteran of the western front for assistance.
Involving Marshall Geary might be his biggest mistake.
Marshall wears a copper mask, as much to hide behind as to conceal his disfigurements. He struggles against howling flashbacks and the lingering stench of his own concealed crimes.
In a town meant for sanctuary, repressed horrors awaken like worms in a collapsing coffin. The closer they get to the truth, the nearer everyone is dragged to their limits, their failings and their buried pasts.
