    While the author has some command of the English language and descriptive power for the scenes he's witnessed professionally, this first effort falls into the category of "cheesy masculine power fantasy" with some not very well-expressed Right-to-Life propaganda for flavoring. Capsule summary - best doctor in the world saves everyone from scientific sin and hubris. And stares at boobs.

    Written by one of my medical school classmates, this thriller uses locations in Memphis familiar to those of us who spent time there. The personalities are interesting and plots are well written making for a page turner. I loved it! Good job, Scott!

    PROTAGONIST: Dr. Eli BranchSETTING: Memphis, TNSERIES: DebutRATING: 3.0Dr. Eli Branch is a rising star in the medical community. As a recent recruit to Gates Memorial Hospital in Memphis, he is about to become a surgeon-scientist with his own lab and assistant that will enable him to do groundbreaking research. However, his star quickly sets when he participates in an operation with the chief of vascular surgery, Dr. James Korinksy. When the patient ends up dying, Korinsky quickly assigns the bl [...]

    A. Scott Pearson has written a rapid-fire, engrossing, and timely medical thriller, an amazing accomplishment for his debut novel. As a surgeon and researcher himself, he brings the world of surgery to life in a way others could not accomplish. His writing is reminiscent of early Frank G. Slaughter, and of Robin Cook. It grips you with the first page and doesn’t let go to the very last word. I believe the author has a brilliant career ahead of him in writing. The entire story takes place withi [...]

    Eli Branch is fresh out of over a decade of medical school and has a great job waiting for him. The son of a renowned anatomist, Eli is eager to make a name for himself as a surgeon-scientist; he'll do half surgery and half research at Gates Memorial Hospital. When Eli gets the blame for a procedure gone horribly wrong at the hands of another surgeon, he goes from golden boy to pariah with a quickness. As he delves into the circumstances of the botched operations that got him exiled, he comes ac [...]

    Rupture. Scott Pearson is an assistant or associate professor of surgery at Vanderbilt, and I heard he had written a book through one of those magazines Vanderbilt Medicine publishes. My Mom decided she really wanted a copy (she loves mysteries and medicine), so I got Dr. Pearson to sign a copy for her. He was fabulous about it. Really nice guy.I finally read the book myself a few months later. It reads really fast, and Dr. Pearson's a great writer. I was a little weirded out by some of the stem [...]

    Dr. Pearson has written a fast-paced and enjoyable thriller here. His heroes are great, his bad guys really wicked, and the suspense compelling. The action is non-stop and motivated me to turn the pages breathlessly at times. He obviously knows his medical details, but rarely gets bogged down in describing them. Some of the content in the final chapters is somewhat improbable and downright "over the top", but this is fiction, right? As a native Tennessean and Vanderbilt graduate, I enjoyed the g [...]

    3.5 out of 5 stars -- Predictable medical thriller!I love a good story with medical details and this one, though predictable with its stereotypical characters, didn't enthrall me but it was entertaining. Focusing on the questions of stem cell research, selling of cadavers, questionable medical procedures and other controversial issues, the novel's main character tries to stop the evil biotech industry with the help of a pathologist.

    This is first book I read by A. Scott Pearson. I stopped reading this book at chapter 5 because it just didn't grab my interest. Since its a medical story I didn't understand some of the terms that was used in the story. This maybe a good story for someone else it just wasn't for me.

    A little far fetched, the action is fast paced, particularly the second half of the book but the villains are so over the top evil- it was a hard to suspend disbelief. Hope the sequel is more believable.

    A decent medical thriller. Not on par with Robin Cook, but enjoyable nonetheless. Some very graphic descriptions. of surgery, that. made me cringe. A little convoluted in the plot, with a bit too much conspiracy action, concluded a mite too easily.

    This could have been much better if the author hadn't relied on coincidence and unbelievable chicanery to advance the plot. I didn't find the characters to be believable.

    Very compelling story however, very technical at some points with lots of complicated medical terms.

    I was most bothered by the sub-plot of the younger brother with an intellectual disability and the author's anachronistic presentation of attitudes, options and language.

    I am queasy with blood, and guess what, the first two chapters are full of bucketfuls. I couldn't read beyond that.

    It was an interesting book -- lots of medical terminology and quite a bit of blood!! The lanuauge was not very good either.

    Another doctor who should stick to his day job! Wildly implausible plot development with some icky philosophical underpinnings. Didn't care for (or believe in )the characters much either

    It was OK, but had a fatal flaw! A trached patient talking! If you are going to do medical thrillers, at least get the basic facts right.
