Medical Thrillers

A wily doctor goes out on a limb to find a killer

Two elderly people passing is an unremarkable occurrence in the British seaside town of Hastings, and certainly not unusual for police doctor and medical examiner Callie Hughes.

Exploring further, Callie’s colleagues find irregularities in the bloods of one of the deceased, but having been cremated, the other individual is beyond reach.

Her concerns dismissed by the obstructive, former romantic interest, DI Steve Miller, who can see no link between the deaths, Callie is side-lined and left to deal with a new trainee at the surgery who is proving hard to handle.

Space Opera Science Fiction

In this brilliant novel—possibly Cherryh’s masterwork—the fate of billions has come down to a confrontation between two profoundly alien cultures on a single desert planet.

Marak has suffered the madness his entire life. He is a prince and warrior, strong and shrewd and expert in the ways of the desert covering his planet. In the service of his father, he has dedicated his life to overthrowing the Ila, the mysterious eternal dictator of his world. For years he has successfully hidden the visions of a silver tower that plague him, but when his secret is discovered, Marak is betrayed by his own father and forced to march in an endless caravan with the rest of his world’s madmen to the Ila’s city of Oburan.

Instead of death, Marak finds in Oburan his destiny, and the promise of life—if he can survive an impossible mission given to him by the strange people in the towers.

According to these beings who look like him yet act differently than anyone he has ever known, Marak has a slim chance to save his world’s people from the wrath of Ila’s enemies. But to do so, he must convince them all—warring tribes, villagers, priests, young and old, as well as the Ila herself—to follow him on an epic trek across the burning desert before the hammer of the Ila’s foes falls from the heavens above.
