Sully is born and raised in a modest cottage on an antebellum Virginia plantation. All he aspires to is writing the next Great American Novel.
After a brief sojourn to France as an exchange student, he graduates from University and settles into the bohemian life of author and pacifist. World War Two changes everything. After initially failing his draft physical, he volunteers for the Air Corps after Pearl Harbor.
Chosen to be a bombardier, Sully is sent to England at the most dangerous time in the air war over Germany. After several harrowing missions, Sully’s bomber is fatally hit forcing him to bail out over Occupied France.
Shattering his leg on impact, he is reluctantly taken in by the Resistance. Uncertain if they should turn him over to the Germans or feed him to the pigs, they have his leg amputated.
During his recovery they realize his fluency in French makes him an asset masquerading as a bitter, crippled French Army veteran. In their service, he becomes a spy, saboteur and assassin.
Writing his memoir, Sully is haunted by the killing, both remote and personal. When it is completed, sitting in his cottage, his only option will be suicide.
A retired surgeon, Wesley lives in Virginia with his wife, Deborah, and two Shi-Tzus, Milo and Odie.
