Oceanview Publishing announces the forthcoming release of "Rupture" by A. Scott Pearson. "Rupture" will be available nationwide on February 1, 2009.
In "Rupture" (Oceanview Publishing, ISBN: 978-1-933515-23-6, $24.95), Pearson introduces protagonist Dr. Eli Branch. Well on the way to realizing his dream of becoming a successful surgeon-scientist, Eli Branch seems destined for academic stardom. After years of research, Eli is on the cusp of a groundbreaking discovery that could light the way for the future. But, as Eli will soon learn, today's medicine has a very dark side.
While investigating the suspicious death of one of his patients, Eli uncovers an elaborate web of lies spun by his late father, a longtime professor of anatomy at Mid-South Medical College in Memphis. Instead of finding answers, Eli only finds more questions-and more victims, each meeting a sudden, violent end. Eli joins forensic pathologist Meg Daily to find a common thread among the victims. As they piece together the chilling puzzle, Eli and Meg plunge headfirst into the world of deadly medicine-a world way too close to home. Trapped in the paradox of ending one life to save another, Eli and Meg find that in this life-or-death race against time, one false step could be fatal.
Set in Memphis, Tennessee, "Rupture" is a chilling tale about what happens when the advances of modern medicine collide with someone's very dark past.
Michael Palmer, New York Times best-selling author of The First Patient calls "Rupture" "top notch medical suspense that will have you turning pages deep into the night. 'Rupture' is the best medical thriller I've read in a long time."
Susan Greger, Publisher at Oceanview, commented, "We are thrilled to announce the release of "Rupture," a phenomenal novel of suspense by a dynamic new voice in the world of medical fiction."
