Insomnia, exhaustion, recurring nightmares: Stephen Sharkey is suffering the after-effects of his career as a war reporter, most recently in Afghanistan, where Ben Frobisher, war photographer and friend, has been shot dead on assignment. Hanging up his flak jacket and turning his back on the everyday reality of war, Stephen moves into a quiet and peaceful cottage in the north of England. It seems the perfect environment in which to write his book on the representations of war, one that will be based largely on Frobisher's work. But Stephen's supposed isolation offers no protection from other people's suffering or the shattering effects of human brutality... CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND ADULT THEMES..
