New Thriller Mixes Medical Drama with High-Stakes Intrigue

Los Angeles, CA, November 01, 2008 --( In the emergency room, a doctor’s choices can have a life-or-death impact - and not just for the patient. That’s what Dr. Jack Eisner learns the hard way in “The Other Side of the Horizon” (Outskirts Press), the pulse-pounding new novel from author and real-life doctor K. Lynch that combines medical drama with high-stakes intrigue and a steamy romance.

Known as one of the best ER physicians at Blakemore General Hospital, Dr. Eisner goes home one night after treating a particularly tough Level III trauma case chalking up yet another “save.” But when the patient dies a short while later, hospital administrators blame Dr. Eisner, pointing to an apparently foolish error. Now, amid hospital recriminations and threatened lawsuits, Dr. Eisner - still smarting from a painful breakup with his beloved Sophia - makes a break with civilization, piling his life into a 1950s sailboat and setting off for wherever the wind takes him.

It's a journey that will bring him face to face with his own mortality as he confronts a slew of threats, from monstrous storms to menacing Cuban police patrols on the high seas. But that’s just for starters. When Dr. Eisner encounters a beautiful Caribbean island, he’ll get mixed up in the most dangerous adventure of his life - and get the chance to redeem himself once and for all. Meanwhile, a young defense lawyer is discovering Dr. Eisner might not be at fault for the tragedy. Can the accused stay alive long enough to see his name cleared?

Drawing upon his extensive medical experience, author K. Lynch ratchets up the tension in astonishingly detailed hospital scenes as exciting as anything seen on “ER.” At the same time, the novel addresses issues in the world of medicine that reveal the tensions that can exist among physicians, hospital administration and the law. At its core is a masterful page-turner that will leave you wanting more.

“The Other Side of the Horizon” is now available through Ingram, Baker & Taylor,,, and the online bookstore of Outskirts Press, at
