Remembering Josh: Bali, A Father's Story (Brian Deegan)

Remembering Josh: Bali, A Father's Story
Brian Deegan

Blurb: 'I've not slept for 70 hours or more, walking, watching, waiting, praying for the end of this nightmare from which, at some stage, I must awake. But the reality is beginning to set in and I know only too well that at least in this life I shall never speak openly with my son. Never again shall I laugh with him, drink with him, discuss his future or watch him take to the field.'

So begins a father's descent into hell.

On 12 October 2002, Brian Deegan's son Joshua was killed in the terrorist explosion that ripped apart the Sari Club in Bali's Kuta Beach. Through grief and anger, this father has gone on a journey no parent should have to take. He has confronted the ghosts of his son's death, challenged the government's version of the truth and fought for the answers nobody wanted to give.

Raw and powerful, Remembering Josh cuts to the heart of love and honesty. Nobody reading this book will be left unaffected by it.
