Texas Medicine by Zack Miller
I'm not going to lie. Just by looking at the cover of this book, it seems rather uninteresting. But I guess we can't judge a book by its cover.
The summary of Zack Miller's Texas Medicine is the following:
"Texas Medicine is where Dallas meets M*A*S*H. It is the story of a physician who is overwhelmed with his work and trapped in a dead marriage. During the summer of 1990, he confronts the murder of a colleague, the life threatening illness of a friend, the theft of his vehicle, and the surreal world of a malpractice suit. When he decides to end his marriage, he is caught in the maw of the family court system. Just as he scrapes emotional and financial bottom, he is recalled to active duty in the United States Navy for Operation Desert Storm. In Saudi Arabia he is befriended by a fearless orthopedic surgeon who puts them in harm's way. As the war winds down, he is offered a plum position at the premier Naval Hospital in San Diego."
Here's some background about the author:
"Zack Miller is a physician who has trained in both psychiatry and neurology. He served on active duty with the United States Navy in the 1970's and again during Operation Desert Storm. He was in private practice in Texas during the 1980's. See more at www.texasmedicinenovel.com"
If you would like to order this book head to Amazon.com (I'm selling this book for $11.50).
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. Don't each too much.
