Author W. H. Wall, Jr. enters the publishing scene with a book that shares the tragic story of the fall of a good and decent man whose life was entangled in an illegal activity by officials who operated under the guise of protecting the country. “From Healing to Hell” (published by AuthorHouse) follows the life of a man of character, integrity and a never-give-up attitude — a remarkable man with an intense love for his family. A man that the author calls his father.

“Secret government work happens, this book clearly tells what can illegally transpire,” Wall states. “This memoir is a summary of the damage caused to my father and an abstract of my own family’s experiences of the illegal CIA activity.”

In a candid and honest tone, Wall reveals how his father, William Henry Wall, became a victim of the program known as MKUltra. According to John Marks’ nonfiction opus, “The Search for the Manchurian Candidate,” the experiment focused on CIA’s attempts to find an effective mind-control or “truth” drug. As Marks reported, the linchpin of the MKUltra program was the compound d-lysergic acid diethylamide or LSD conducted to hundreds of people — sometimes on unwitting U.S. citizens.

Throughout the pages, readers get a glimpse of the mental damages brought by the experiment. Wall recounts how his father struggled with visual and auditory sensations that persisted as paranoia and “episodes” for years. He also shares how this situation caused his father’s downfall and the entire family’s pain.

With the publication of “From Healing to Hell,” the author hopes to prompt the citizens of the United States to be constantly alert to illegal government action. “In my father’s tragedy I find one inescapable lesson: never again must any American citizen’s rights be so callously violated. Never again must any unwilling American become the government’s guinea pig, and never again must any intelligence-gathering purpose supersede the protection our Constitution provides,” he concludes.
