All parents keep secrets from their children. My father, it seemed, kept more than most ...Whilst mourning the death of his father, journalist Stewart Dubin decides to research the life of a man he had always respected, always admired, but possibly never quite knew ...As a young, idealistic lawyer during the last terrible months of the Second World War, David Dubin was sent to the European Front -- ostensibly to bring charges against a brave American hero, Robert Martin, who had suddenly, inexplicably, gone local and stopped following orders. Martin has become a liability and the authorities want him neutralized. But as Dubin learns more about Martin and the demons possessing him, he finds himself falling in love with Martin's enigmatic ex-mistress -- a dangerous woman of incredible courage. And someone who will do anything to protect her comrade-in-arms ...Stewart discovers a journal written by his father -- and learns of his incredible courage in the face of battle, reads first-hand of the shattering moral consequences for those caught in the chaos of war and, finally, the secret he had died protecting ...
