Overview

Zeb Marlowe, the physically scarred and invisibly wounded survivor of a top secret CIA brainwashing experiment, has begun to remake his life when Jai Jai Leland, the beautiful widow of a man who didn't survive, asks him to help her solve the mystery of her husband's violent death.

Marlowe, struggling to resist his attraction to Jai Jai, is pulled into her quest despite his memories of trauma and abuse. Together they search for psychiatrist Victor Ressid, creator of the experiments that turn student volunteers into slaves.

Meanwhile, obsessed by his own strange sexual appetites and sudden, unexpected access to unimaginable wealth, Ressid is consumed by fantasies of revenge against Marlowe, the only volunteer to defy him.

Against an ominous background of global terrorism, Marlowe and Jai Jai uncover a deadly conspiracy at the heart of government. They must risk their lives to stop a nuclear threat that will destroy the security of the entire world even as they wonder if Marlowe, too, has been turned into a slave.

With a plot that hurtles forward at electric speed, BRAINWASHED is set during the paranoid 1970's of Vietnam and Watergate. The novel takes place on the beautiful islands of the Caribbean, in Mexico and Ireland, Washington, DC and in a buried underground torture chamber located on Victor Ressid's secluded private estate near the Belize border.

BRAINWASHED is based on real-life psychiatric experiments conducted by the CIA in American universities and known by the code name MK-ULTRA.
