The mental ward of a military hospital on a tropical Indo-Pacific island at the end of World War II is the setting for this novel. Ward X is a self-contained world for its five remaining patients and their nurse, Honour Langtry. She cares deeply for the five men now in her charge, all with different temperaments and backgrounds. The routine of the ward is disrupted by a new patient, Michael Wilson, who Honour Langtry becomes too interested in. And he, never willing it, becomes the catalyst for jealousy, violence, intrigue, conspiracy, love - and tragedy.
