A psychological study of combat in war and the terror bombings here at home-from Korea, Algeria and Vietnam to the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and Oklahoma City terrorist attacks. It penetrates the nightmarish anguish, anger, depression, despair, guilt and yet ultimate hope for veterans and ordinary citizens suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. It is told through the hopeful eyes yet tortured mind of a U.S. Marine Master Sergeant who is scorched by war and searching to regain his own identity. The novel is based on actual battlefield events, as well as the ravages of the bombings in the United States. Perhaps the most compelling aspect of the book is the answers it provides to overcome the haunting images of terror. In the end, the book is remarkably hopeful in its search for compassion and understanding."'Mighty Pen' Jack Casserly has spawned another passionate and penetrating novel."-Rachelle Bump, Prescott Courier"Jack Casserly has done his homework well.
