Clever use of tech by Wilde – the protagonist has returned from an overseas trip as an embedded journalist. She was on the front line, and using tech that enhanced her vision, recording what she saw and storing it, enabling her to get up very close and personal with the GI Joes and Janes.
However, she got rather too close to the action, and has been shipped back home, with physical and mental scars, and some ghosts left in the machine – not all highly classified stuff she saw has been wiped clear, as the authorities believe. And back home, visiting a church ad graveyard of her youth, she finds she is much, much more in tune with those spending their time there, including, delightfully, Tallullah Bankhead (younger readers will benefit from a look at wikipedia!)
