'The Death Pit': Who Is Responsible for the Deaths of Young Women at a Detroit Hospital?
GEORGETOWN, Texas, Sept. 1, 2009 -- The unexplained death of a young woman at Detroit's Henry Ford Hospital following a tubal ligation was considered a tragic loss. The second such death sent shock waves through the hospital's surgical department, flamed by the hospital's mortality committee review. A fourth similar death resulted in surgical privileges being suspended and the hiring of Cole Buchanan, an experienced forensic pathologist, to determine the cause of the deaths.
In his new medical thriller, "The Death Pit" (published by iUniverse - http://www.iuniverse.com), Dr. Michael Wright tells how Dr. Buchanan determines the deaths were murders - but he doesn't know how. Following his insistence, the
hospital informs the Detroit Police, and Detective Joe Braun, a former Detroit Lions player, is assigned to the case. Enter old Father Pick, a diplomat of the Vatican, and a fanatic advocate against birth control. After becoming a hindrance to the Detroit's Corktown area Catholic Church, his ministering is relegated to midnight mass, when he rants about procreation, and is heard by a disturbed young man who served as one of his altar boys. He believes his indulgence to enter Heaven is to kill those who failed to heed Pick's words. The murders begin. Wright's novel is a tale of science, murder, politics, religion and romance. The detailed descriptions of medical procedures, along with insight into medical politics, add a unique element of interest and intrigue.
