Summary
This is a story of an Australian war widow called Grace who struggles to come to terms and understand the brutal death of her young husband at the hands of the Japanese in 1945. As a member of an elite commando group led by Doucette, a charismatic and unstable Irish major, Captain Leo Waterhouse returned home a war hero after a devastating attack on Japanese shipping, only to join a subsequent fatal mission to the heart of occupied Singapore. Sixty years later, Grace learns the truth of his ultimate fate from retired US major general Jesse Creed, who is revisiting his wartime haunts in Australia and the glass is finally shattered
