Kassandra Lambabout this book: On September 11, 2011, I was furious when the media started once again replaying the video of the devastation of 9/11 over and over. "Don't you realize you're retraumatizing people," I yelled at the TV. Out of my frustration came the storyline for Zero Hero.
Pete Jamieson was a 9/11 first responder who came out of the experience relatively intact psychologically, until the 10th anniversary. The replay of the videos triggers delayed PTSD and a downhill slide into drug addiction.
Then just as he's starting to get his life back on track, he's accused of murdering his former drug dealer and childhood friend. Psychotherapist Kate Huntington, her private detective husband, and her lawyer best friend attempt to keep Pete on the road to recovery and clear him of the murder charges. But they find themselves in over their heads, dealing with drug dealers and pimps in the worst section of Baltimore City, and confronting their own unresolved feelings about 9/11.
I found this story hard to write, but also healing in the end. I hope it has a similar effect for my readers.
