The book follows Captain Hugh Lomax as he returns to the island where he was captured during the war. The islanders however provide a hostile reception, believing that he betrayed them for his own freedom. The penalty for assisting an enemy proved to be very severe with many killed, raped or sent to concentration camps.Coupled with flashback to the war we accompany Lomax as he attempts to weed out the real traitor and clear his name.As usual with Higgins you can expect plenty of violence, a man's man, and a girl who can see the good in him. Not Higgins greatest but still better than most books in the genre.
