“You are not who you say you are.”
Years after Captain Scott Weatherhill returns home from Afghanistan, images from a firefight there are stirred up in his mind at a family campground. Demons are unleashed that spiral out of control, with devastating consequences.
David Price, the psychiatrist who wants to constrain him with drugs, and Ken White, the behavioural therapist who tries to remake him, become part of a growing tragedy.
After Weatherhill returns to society, the disappearance of first one co-worker and then another turns unwanted attention to his ongoing rehabilitation. His fate and those of his doctors are drawn together in ways no one could have predicted. Badly Hidden is a fast-paced psychological thriller and a troubling interpretation of post-traumatic stress disorder.

A short story based on Badly Hidden was published in the anthology Thirty at Thirty. Westland divides his time between his home in Rockcliffe and a cottage at Sharbot Lake, Ontario.
