Debut medical thriller author Frank Edwards on 'Final Mercy Virtual Book Tour' February 2011

Join Frank Edwards as he tours the blogosphere February 1-25 2011 to talk about his new medical thriller, Final Mercy (Zumaya Publications).

 

Frank was born in Rochester New York.  In 1968 he entered the US Army and served a tour in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot.  He received a BA with honors in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill then attended medical school at the University of Rochester, graduating with an MD in 1979.  In 1989 he received an MFA in writing from Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC.  After practicing for a decade in North Carolina, he returned to the Rochester, area in 1990 where he remains in active practice.

 

He has published a number of poems and short stories in literary magazines including Carolina Quarterly and The Virginia Quarterly Review, along with numerous medical articles.  In 1988, Henry Holt published his first non-fiction book, Medical Malpractice: Solving the Crisis. His second non-fiction book, The M & M Files: Morbidity and Mortality Rounds in Emergency Medicine was published by Hanley & Belfus in 2002 and has become a standard text in emergency medicine.

 

For the past thirteen years he has taught creative writing seminars to medical students at the U of R.   In 2004, the University of Rochester Press published his collection of poems and short stories, It’ll Ease the Pain.

 

Final Mercy is his first novel.

Final Mercy

 

Final Mercy centers on Dr. Jack Forester, director of the New Canterbury University Hospital emergency department, who is about to win an ongoing battle to modernize the ED when he’s stymied by the power-hungry dean, Bryson Witner.  Then someone tries to murder Jack’s mentor and the former dean, setting it up to look like suicide.

 

Bit by bit, Jack uncovers facts that suggest several other recent tragic accidents may not have been in the least accidental.  The deeper he digs, the closer danger creeps, and the phrase “life or death” begins to take on a new and very personal meaning.
