"Losing Nelson" is a novel of obsession, the story of Charles Cleasby, a man unable to see himself separately from the hero -- Lord Horatio Nelson -- he mistakenly idolizes.

However, in his research he has come upon an incident of horrifying brutality in Nelson's military career that simply stumps all attempts at glorification.
