TRAPPED IN WHAT APPEARS TO BE AN ENDLESS BLOODBATH--vividly presented with Heffernan's meticulous historical research--the boys gradually begin to change until their close-knit childhood ties are little more than a fractured memory. By war's end, one boy is dead, one returns a physically crippled and emotionally compromised man, and the third comes home as an unfeeling psychopath. THE NOVEL TURNS ON THE SUBSEQUENT MURDER of the psychopath, and the offer of redemption for the wounded young man who must investigate the crime. When Johnny Came Marching Home is a story about war, and how it affects the lives of all who become a part of it, both directly and peripherally. Although set during the Civil War, this book casts shadows of what we endure today and the horrors to which young soldiers are subjected.

"R.C. Bray's narration is stronger than the weak material of this novel, set after the Civil War. Jubal Foster, a recently returned veteran, reluctantly tries to solve a murder in the aftermath of the the war. Bray handles the flashbacks to the war but bogs down in the irrelevant historical details. He does what he can with Jubal's emotional flatness, but, overall, Bray's efforts are wasted on a disappointing book from Edgar winner Heffernan. D.M.H. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
