I’m a devoted fan of Timothy Browne, MD’s medical thrillers.
He has a book in this collection! Nab this collection or don’t come crying to me that you missed out.
The Rusted Scalpel is Timothy Browne, MD’s best book yet! This medical thriller creates a you-are-there feel as Orthopedic Surgeon Nicklaus Hart struggles with sudden blindness. His disability forces him to reevaluate life as he knew it. With his career gone, he struggles with everything he previously took for granted.
This taut, suspenseful medical thriller draws the reader from Montana to exotic Singapore, to India, and to the remote areas of Borneo once known as the land of the headhunters. The memorable characters drive the story from one man’s struggle into the broader human battle between good and evil. Goodness and seductive evil reveal themselves slowly from the gray areas, one decision at a time, to the breath-taking conclusion.
This is the finest story in the Nicklaus Hart series of medical thrillers. Browne has the background as an orthopedic surgeon and as a medical missionary to write vivid thrillers set in the remote and forbidding ends of the earth.
Okay, I confess. Sometimes I buy a book because of the cover. In this case, I bought the book because I love medical thrillers, but wowza, what a gorgeous cover.
Not since Robin Cook’s Coma, has a medical thriller created such frightening and believable suspense. The Tree of Life is set in Turkey after the cradle of civilization is rocked by a devastating earthquake. Rushing into the disaster zone are Doctors Nicklaus Hart and Ali Hassan to triage and treat the wounded as quickly as possible. Faced with cultural and ideological conflict, the doctors strive to save the men, women, and children in an isolated area of Turkey. Centuries of deep-seated hatred between rival religious groups and extremists rise to the boiling point. The characters are presented with honesty and compassion in all their complexity and humanity.
This is the second medical thriller by Author Timothy Browne featuring Dr. Nicklaus Hart. The first book, published in 2017, was Maya Hope, set in Guatemala.
Author and Orthopedic Surgeon Timothy Browne writes with authority about disaster relief. He has worked with Mercy Ships, Operation Blessing, and Hope Force International. He provided medical and humanitarian aid in Sri Lanka after the 2004 tsunami, in Sierra Leone, West Africa at the end of the Blood Diamond War, and in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.
What could be better than a medical thriller written by a physician? Not since COMA by Robin Cook, and The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton, have I been this excited about a medical thriller. Author and physician Timothy D. Browne’s Maya Hope offers a devastating medical what-if scenario and then he backs it up with layers of believable science and human nature. The story is set in the medical mission field, those end-of-the-earth places where people suffer from lack of medical care. Places the rest of the world ignores. Places where the poor are the most vulnerable. Take a thrill ride to the remote villages of Guatemala where something is happening to the villagers that a visiting physician cannot ignore or explain until he digs deeper into unspeakable danger.
Maya Hope by Timothy Browne, MD
Dr. Browne knows these places. He served as a medical missionary for years. For example, he served on Mercy Ships in Serra Leone, Africa around the time the peace treaty was signed. Think Blood Diamonds and injuries by machete. It takes a special kind of courage or craziness to deliver medical care and mission work to the ends of the earth. Sierra Leone absolutely qualifies as the undesirable end of the earth, if you know what I mean.
I met Dr. Browne at a medical conference in Las Vegas, years after he invited my husband to work on the Mercy Ships mission to Sierra Leone, Africa. Dr. Browne mentioned his upcoming book then and I have been looking forward since then to seeing it published. Only someone who has worked in the mission field as a missionary could have written this story with such authenticity and accuracy.
I highly recommend this story, but buckle your seat belt. It’s a thrill ride that might leave you with a lasting unease from the “what if” premise.
So far the book is available in print, but perhaps Dr. Browne will offer it in eBook format in the future.
