RILEY CAN’T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME HE HAD A GOOD DAY…BUT HE KNOWS A BAD ONE WHEN IT REARS UP...
Riley lives through a series of interactions with people he doesn’t like, and which is also peppered with the odd bit of fire fighting for the local Fire Brigade. He battles the challenges of PTSD alone and in the silence of his crowded mind, while the views of his colleagues are in line with opinions that belong in the 1950’s.
Then there is the constant niggling sensation that things are about to get much worse for Riley, if this were even possible, yet as Riley’s fractured mind hurtles towards greater uncertainties, it becomes clear that he’s about to face his greatest fear head on; himself.
“A brave and delving look into the psychological function of day-to-day life with PTSD and a relative real and engaging tale of a man unable to process his world beyond his own mind…this book took my scepticism by surprise…amazing and thoroughly enjoyable…five stars!” William, Indiebook Reviewer
