(From the publisher):
Marcus Brennan is a successful small-town lawyer on the verge of a breakdown. His wife, Schelle, thinks it's post-traumatic stress disorder from his years as a POW in Vietnam. Planning the dedication of a memorial for Vietnam soldiers, she asks Marcus to say a few words at the ceremony, hoping the experience will help to exorcise his demons. But after agreeing to defend Estella Pritchett, a social worker accused of murdering her lover, Marcus begins a downward spiral into the murky depths of his own past, where sex is violent, where love means betrayal, and where his own memories have the power to destroy him.
