Jessup is a broken man, scarred physically and emotionally, by what he witnessed during World War 2, and now cleans the toilets of prisoners to make money to buy alcohol. When not arguing with his best friend, Marlow, he broods in his room and contemplates suicide as the only way to escape his pain.
But when he is offered the chance of a better job, he must choose between a new start and turning his back on the one person who treats him with respect: a man whose life is in danger.
A dark, sweeping tale from the battlefields of France and Northern Africa to the East End of London… It is 1950 and Jessup has one last chance to turn his life around.
A harrowing, gripping novel, Jessup will linger long in the reader’s memory.
Jessup is the latest novel now available worldwide from the Author of the Dennis Bisskit books.

5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't want this story to end

This well-written and a beautifully crafted story of Jessup took me on a journey of emotions. So invested in the character of Jessup a war veteran who carries the physical and mental scars of war, I didn't want it to end.
The playful, humor of Stephen Ainley did shine through at the right moments in the story adding an element of joy for the reader.
Well done Mr Ainley"
