Malachy Kitchen, an intelligence officer posted in Iraq, appears guilty of cowardice while on patrol with an infantry platoon ambushed by insurgents. Kicked out of the army, he becomes an isolated recluse in a drug-infested London estate. But the mugging of his neighbour by addicts lights the flame that draws him to regain his lost pride and take the fight to the narcotics network he sees around him.

Professional reviews

"Crispin Redman gives a strong performance as Malachy Kitchen, who is accused of leaving his patrol in Iraq while it was under siege. Disgraced, Malachy descends to hard drinking and living rough. Redman does wonders with the gang-speak of the South London projects and is convincing as Malachy embarks on a series of vigilante missions, eliminating small-time drug dealers in order to regain his honor. Redman handles the subplots with finesse, including some frightening descriptions of attempts to smuggle an Islamic fanatic into England, conversations at MI6, and encounters with the German police. Even for a political thriller, the plot is a bit of a stretch, but Redman stays believable as Malachy seeks to redeem his good name. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
