    • Synopsis
    • In a small fishing village on the west coast of Ireland lives a man who hides a secret. In fact, he IS the secret.
      They promised to endow him with super-human strength. Instead, he became an invalid. He had hoped to be a hero. Instead, he has to hide away from the world.
      Because Duane Fitzgerald is the result of a secret military experiment to turn an elite troop of soldiers into cyborgs. An attempt that resulted in tragic failure.
      In return for his willingness to sacrifice his young body to this failed project, Duane was allowed to spend the rest of his life in the place of his choosing.
      He chose a remote cottage once owned by his forefathers near Dingle, in County Kerry. There, over the years, he has formed bonds in the community despite having to keep his personal distance.
      But now his past is catching up with him. First through the work of an investigative journalist. And then as he falls back under the grasp of the military who had set him free.
      Fitzgerald is in danger. But more important to him: so are those he has grown to care about in this village.
      His powers are failing, but they are not gone. He knows his days are numbered.
      He had given up his thoughts of being a hero, but must now use his fading powers against those who seek to erase him – the last trace of this scandalous military failure – and save those around him.
