Afghanistan. In the heat and dust, young British army medic Elinor Nielson watches an Afghan girl walk into a hail of bullets. But when she runs to help, Ellie finds her gone. Who is she? And what's happened to her? What Ellie discovers makes her question everything she believes in - even her feelings for the American lieutenant who takes her side.

About the Author

David Massey

David Massey’s life is like his music collection: seriously mixed up. He’s written sketches for broadcast on African FM radio stations, presented music and magazine shows, and produced the odd drama or two. His talent for fixing things enabled him to make an almost seamless transition from behind the mic to installing radio and production studios all over the place. His wife thinks it was just so he could spend loads of time with sultry Hispanic radio presenters in Miami. Nowadays he prefers the quiet life, running a business with Debi, shouting at the dog, being clawed to shreds by the cat, playing the guitar and – oh yeah – writing.

After heading up an aid expedition during the Romanian revolution and broadcasting in Africa, David witnessed the devastating effect of conflict on young people. Their resilience and ability to be instruments of change helped inspire his story of a teenage army medic. David and his wife Debi now run an emergency supplies business.
