Overview

John Morland, an amnesic is revealed under hypnosis as a profane, angry alcoholic, cynic, convinced the world is insane and when drunk violent.
John is hopelessly infatuated with his sexually selfish, emotionally aloof bohemian wife, Luci, whose access to money allows, encourages him to take the time to find an intrinsically socially acceptable occupation. His several, detailed searches fail and he blames society.
In the Beginning
When the body recovers consciousness, is visited by a doctor with assurances that his condition was not the result of alcohol, he consults a mirror and the face is that of a stranger. The Identification papers found in his clothes belong to Harry MacMasters a Canadian.
Harry has no knowledge of his past or the source of his knowledge. The world is brand new, prompting questions to former friends of John Morland. – their attitudes, philosophy of life. He learns early in the book their attitudes toward his former identity. The more he learns the more determined he is to thwart psychiatrist, Milton Cohen’s attempt to bring back Morland, in effect to kill MacMasters, the antithesis of John Morland.
The story deals with society, sexual bondage, hate, attempted murder, suicide
Though very concerned with our nation’s future I have tried to remain a storyteller to entertain and inform, presenting interesting unforgettable characters.
Can John Morland’s syndrome be America’s syndrome?
That is for the readers to decide.
