Oceanview Publishing announces the upcoming release of Public Anatomy by A. Scott Pearson. Public Anatomy (ISBN: 978-1-60809-009-9, Thriller, 288 pages, Hardcover, $25.95) will be available wherever fine books are sold on March 7, 2011.
The second novel by surgeon A. Scott Pearson, Public Anatomy is an intense, Memphis-based medical thriller featuring protagonist Eli Branch. While recovering from a career-threatening injury, Branch is pulled into the turbulent world of Dr. Liza French, a colleague he hasn't seen in ten years. Liza uses their past to lure Eli into a highly-publicized debacle in a Memphis hospital that has put her own career in jeopardy.
But when the murder of medical personnel at Gates Memorial appears related to Liza's surgical complication, Eli finds that more lives are at imminent risk.
Eli discovers clues from the victims that match anatomical art found at the crime scenes, a connection that leads him to the manuscript of a sixteenth century anatomist whose methods of dissection are over four centuries old--but are being reenacted in the present.
Aided by the expertise of forensic pathologist, Dr. Meg Daily, Eli uncovers a pattern to the escalating deaths and the search begins for a killer the media and the city come to know as The Organist.
According to Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The Emperor's Tomb, "A tantalizing premise combined with tight suspense makes this one delicious tale. You'll enjoy the ride."
A. Scott Pearson is a surgeon in Nashville, Tennessee. For the past decade, he has been a member of the surgical faculty at Vanderbilt University, where he combines research with the clinical practice of surgery and teaches on the importance of the patient's narrative in medicine. Pearson's debut novel, Rupture, won top honors in the new fiction category of the National Indie Excellence 2010 Awards.
