Synopsis

Annabel Tilson is a medical student starting her first clinical rotation where she has high hopes of mastering patient care like her famous neurosurgeon father. However, she soon realizes that studying for surgery exams and taking care of patients is only part of the complex burden of her role as a surgical team member.

Grappling with a resident who hates her and a dreamy infatuation for her chief resident, she discovers an inordinate outbreak of patient mortality. But for Annabel to dig further puts her at risk of failing the rotation and ending her future career as a physician.

Teaser: Excerpt

     When the entire group entered Mr. Newman’s room, he peered over his newspaper and smiled. He sat in the armchair next to the window, the last drips of his evening dose of antibiotic going into his IV.
      “Well, look at you,” Robby said. “It appears your two primary surgical physicians have taken good care of you.”
      Dr. Wallace and Annabel stepped forward, and Brandy shut the IV pump off before it started beeping.
      “Only after that one used me for a pin cushion,” he said, pointing at Annabel.
      Annabel’s shoulders sagged and she wondered if Dr. Mack was going to chime in. He’d done enough damage to her for the whole rotation.
      “Actually, I’m glad she got that IV in,” Dr. Wallace said. “Otherwise I was going to have to start a central line.”
      “No thank you, ma’am,” Mr. Newman said. “I know what those are and I don’t want no part of them.”
      “You’ve had enough bowel rest,” Robby remarked. “But I bet you enjoyed that gelatin and bullion.”
      “It was a stepping stone to the fat burger I’m going to devour when I get outta here.”
      Dr. Pittman patted the patient’s shoulder. “You have a good night. I’m taking this motley crew with me,” he said, pointing towards the door.

The Series: Dr. Danny Tilson


Annabel's novel is a spinoff from her father's series, The Dr. Danny Tilson Novels, especially Book Four - Secondary Impact.

Although the Dr. Danny Tilson Novels are a series and the characters are best appreciated by reading the books in sequence, each book can stand alone.

Who says a rising neurosurgeon can’t fall from his pinnacle? From the skullduggery taking place deep in the Tennessee woods to the silent tension in the OR, Doctor Danny Tilson’s life takes an abrupt turn after performing surgery alongside a scrub nurse with aqua eyes and a velvet voice.

Can Danny’s situation get any worse after the alluring lady disappears, he inherits her roguish retriever, and his Albert Einstein historical book turns up missing? A pack of Tennessee attorneys pursue Danny while he develops a scheme with his paramedic best friend to payback the mysterious woman who left in a hurry.
