About the Book

Heartbeat is the story of Leon Mendel, emergency physician at an inner city trauma center, and his battle to save his own sanity amidst the madness and chaos of the ER. It takes you full speed into the middle of a busy trauma center, the excitement, drama, and occasional humor found there. It takes you at equal speed inside a mind becoming unhinged, struggling to heal itself while maintaining the outward appearance of normality.

Leon is an expert at rapid diagnosis and resuscitation of the critically ill. But Leon is becoming psychotic. Several deaths in the ER leave him with a growing fear of death. He feels it surrounding him, whispering to him. He begins to hear dying patients? souls escaping. An expert at dealing with mental illness in others, he sees it emerging in himself.

Leon encounters Rita Thal, the alcoholic mother of a terminally ill teenager. She senses Leon?s turmoil and wants to help him. But will Leon allow her to come that close? Will he let her lead him through the maze of his memories to the surprising source of his mental anguish?

Heartbeat is at once a technothriller, love story, and psychodrama. It is a compelling rollercoaster of a story, an adventure of the mind.
