The Chameleon's Shadow jellemzők

Having received severe head injuries in Iraq, Lieutenant Charles Acland cuts all ties with his former life and moves to London. Disfigured, alone and unmonitored, he sinks into a private world of guilt and paranoia. When a customer annoys him in a Bermondsey pub, he attracts the attention of the police, who are investigating three local murders that seem to have been motivated by extreme rage...
Under suspicion, Acland is forced to confront the real issues behind his isolation. How much control does he have over the dark side of his personality? Do his crippling migraines contribute to his rages? Has he always been the duplicitous chameleon that his ex-fiancée claims?
And why - if he hates women - does he look to a woman for help?
