The last tour of Archie Forbes

Hendry, Victoria2015
Books, Manuscripts
Returning from active service in Afghanistan, Archie's life has fallen apart. Suffering from severe PTSD, he's lost his job and his family and now he's on the streets - desperately trying to cope in a hostile, austerity-strapped world that doesn't understand the horror of war and the devastating effect it has on the mind. Archie has a chance to rebuild his life with his new exercise class, ironically called 'Slim for Jesus', until a friend goes missing and Archie, being the 'local nut job', is the prime suspect. Victoria Hendry offers an utterly convincing (and often frightening) take on contemporary life, from the dislocated viewpoint of someone whose life is unravelling.
