Cressida Mayfield has gone missing. The desperate search yields but one clue; she was last seen in the company of Corporal Brett Kincaid, Iraq veteran - and the ex-fiance of Cressida's sister. As the deeply traumatized Kincaid struggles to mount a defence, he finds his memories of that terrible night are tangled with those of the most appalling wartime savagery. Dark and riveting, the nerve-shredding 'Carthage' unravels the devastating consequences of violence on two young lives, while probing the very limits of our capacity for forgiveness.
