Jessup is a broken man, scarred physically and emotionally, by what he witnessed during World War 2, and now cleans the toilets of prisoners to make money to buy alcohol. When not arguing with his best friend, Marlow, he broods in his room and contemplates suicide as the only way to escape his pain.
But when he is offered the chance of a better job, he must choose between a new start and turning his back on the one person who treats him with respect: a man whose life is in danger.
A dark, sweeping tale from the battlefields of France and Northern Africa to the East End of London… It is 1950 and Jessup has one last chance to turn his life around.
A harrowing, gripping novel, Jessup will linger long in the reader’s memory. $2.99 on Kindle.
