In the novel Legacy of War a new patient triggers Psychologist John Moore’s traumatic memories of his last days of the Vietnam War. Moore is forced to return to modern-day Vietnam, a journey confronting his past war demons: the dying on the killing fields, a rogue CIA agent, corrupt South Vietnamese Army officers, the father he never knew, and the war’s perverted killing machine—the Phoenix Program. In the decaying jungles he fights his anguish compounded by his wife’s death and his growing attraction to a national police agent.
Come meet the author, Ed Marohn, for a reading and discussion around the novel, military veteran PTSD, and his experience facilitating a PTSD group for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
Books will be available for sale and signing courtesy of Chapter One Bookstore.
