THE BOOK: A Change of Hate.
PUBLISHED IN: 2017
THE AUTHOR: Joe Broadmeadow.
THE PUBLISHER: JEBWizard Publishing.
SUMMARY: Often the most tragic victims of war are those who survive…
Harrison “Hawk Bennett, defense lawyer and former Green Beret, becomes entangled in a broad government conspiracy. Spanning the time from his Special Ops missions in Vietnam to the present, Hawk finds himself representing a Buddhist Monk accused of murdering a CIA official.
Nothing is ever as it seems and the past is but a memory away…
THE BACK STORY: I formed the idea of the book after reading works by Thich Nhat Han, a Vietnamese Buddhist Monk and teacher who was active in the anti-war movement. He was forced to flee the country.
I wondered what would happen if two former enemies, one American and one Viet Cong were thrust together by circumstances beyond their control. The story evolved from that simple idea. It took just over a year to complete the writing.
The boo, touching on a host of themes, appeals to a wide range of readers.
WHY THIS TITLE?: The twist on the line, a change of heart, appealed to me and fit the overall theme.
WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO READ IT? Anyone with interest in the human cost of war and its long-term consequences on those who survive will enjoy the book. While the American War in Vietnam is just a backdrop to the story, it is the genesis of the theme and conflict.
