Synopsis

After a harrowing betrayal, a soldier fights for redemption
In the darkest days of World War II, Captain Hugh Lomax was Greece’s last hope to drive the Nazis from the island of Kyros. His daring mission, and its brilliant success, should have ensured Lomax a hero’s welcome when he returned to Kyros years later. Instead, he discovers that his allies on the island have been executed and the survivors manipulated to believe that he had betrayed them. Lomax is determined to earn back of the trust of the people of Kyros. But first he must uncover the truth behind the murderous conspirators—before they can kill him.
