When Lieutenant Charles Acland is flown home from Iraq with serious head injuries, he faces not only permanent disfigurement but also an apparent change to his previously outgoing personality. Crippled by migraines, and suspicious of his psychiatrist, he begins to display sporadic bouts of aggression, particularly against women, especially his ex-fiancee who seems unable to accept that the relationship is over. After his injuries prevent his return to the army, he cuts all ties with his former life and moves to London. Alone and unmonitored, he sinks into a private world of guilt and paranoid distrust . . . until a customer annoys him in a Bermondsey pub and he attracts the attention of local police investigating three murders which appear to have been motivated by extreme rage . . . Under suspicion, Acland is forced to confront the real issues behind his isolation. How much control does he have over the dark side of his personality? Do his migraines contribute to his rages? Has he always been the duplicitous chameleon that his ex-fiancee claims? And why – if he hates women – does he look to a woman for help?

A CHAMELEON IN THE SHADOWS (Nuclear Terrorist Avoids U.S. Capture!) How do you stop insurgents who are constantly one move ahead of you; that blend into the background with astonishing ease; who are thoroughly convinced that they are positively right and that you are absolutely wrong? Worse yet, they are fanatics who are gladly willing to die for what they believe. Those people do not observe the Marquess of Queensbury Rules, nor do they have a Judeo-Christian ethic to restrain their actions. Men, women and children are all treated as if they were combatants. They make no distinction between a 240 pound man carrying a machine gun, a pregnant woman in full blossom, nor a 14 pound infant carrying a toy rattle. Slaughtering millions of innocent, unarmed noncombatants, men, women, children, the aged and the infirm, does not deter them. This is the massive challenge facing director Gordon Manning's CT-2 Team. They must capture this ruthless terrorist and his stealthy cell before they can assemble and explode nuclear devices in 13 major American cities.

Two suspenseful stories in one volume from the Edgar Award–winning author of The Dark Room. From an acclaimed, multimillion-selling author known for her tales about seemingly normal people driven to commit the most heinous crimes imaginable, Innocent Victims collects two novellas in one volume: Chickenfeed Following young Norman Thorne and his girlfriend, Elsie, from their first meeting in chapel until Thorne is about to go on trial for killing her four years later, this chilling, twisting tale is based on the true story of the ‘chicken run murder’ in East Sussex in 1924. The Tinder Box Patrick O’Riordan has been arrested for the brutal murder of an elderly woman and her live-in nurse. As shock turns to fury, the village residents unite against the O’Riordan family. But a neighbor remains convinced that Patrick is innocent—and jeopardizes her own position within the community to stand firmly in defense of the O’Riordan name. But soon she is forced to question her loyalties . . . “Fans of Edgar-winner Walters will welcome this collection . . . the poignant Chickenfeed, based on an infamous 1924 murder case in East Sussex. [And] The Tinder Box, a compelling tale of prejudice and gossip [where] everything falls into place to produce a shockingly different picture than expected.” —Publishers Weekly
