Shelf Life




Medical Alert: Things are going great, professionally, for Dr. Eli Branch, a surgeon-scientist at Gates Memorial Hospital in Memphis, where he's on the brink of making a medical breakthrough. Then things start going not so great. An operation goes wrong, and he gets blamed for it. Then he follows a tangle of lies (and a path of dead patients), until he himself becomes a prime suspect. But thanks to the able assistance of Meg Daily, a forensic pathologist, Branch gets to the diagnosis: murder. Make that murders. And make this the bare-bone outline of Rupture (Oceanview Publishing), a medical thriller by A. Scott Pearson.

That's Doctor A. Scott Pearson, a native Memphian who got his M.D. from U.T. and who now serves on the surgery faculty at Vanderbilt University Medical School. John Grisham meets Patricia Cornwell in this, Pearson's debut as a novelist. Meet Pearson when he signs and discusses Rupture at Davis-Kidd Booksellers on Saturday, March 7th, 2009, at 1 p.m.
