Two surgeons, a man and wife.
She … is sued for malpractice and loses her case—a devastating blow to a proud professional that drives her into terrible despair and finally suicide.
He … watches his wife slowly pushed toward self-destruction by the cynical hostility of prosecutors in a legal system that has lost its concern for justice. But he decides he’ll reintroduce justice into the system—his own kind, administered in his own way.
Then malpractice attorneys begin to turn up dead. Each one is uniquely executed—and surgically altered in bizarre and disturbing ways. There are no fingerprints, no blood. Few clues are left behind. Usable evidence is sparse. And the killer, as he contemplates what he’s accomplished, silently dedicates each murder to the memory of his beloved wife.
The police detective assigned to this case, Septimus “Mac” McClymonds, soon confirms that he is in a battle of wits with a most unusual and highly intelligent serial killer. As he carefully studies the details of each crime, attempting to develop a profile of the perpetrator, he finds himself continually frustrated, and he is even taunted with grim humor by macabre notes the murderer leaves on the bodies of his victims, celebrating yet another death.
Thus develops a cat-and-mouse game between Mac and his quarry, until the elusive killer finally seems to have been identified and Mac is about to nab him—except for . . .
Scalpel is a tongue-in-cheek look at the world of medical malpractice and how it affects physicians. It is a hyperbole reaction of one particular doctor who “goes off the deep end,” perhaps a reflection of the transient evil thoughts of most doctors when they receive a lawyer’s letter of intent to file suit for medical malpractice. Being sued, whether for good reason or bad, is often the most stressful time in a doctor’s professional life, fraught with anger, depression, self-righteous indignation, and unfortunately in a few cases, suicide. In a profession where anything less than perfection is seen by the public as failure, most physicians maintain a very high standard of practice. And when, as human beings are apt to do, they commit errors of judgment, omission or commission, they are devastated when assaulted by the seemingly unfeeling malpractice attorneys. The doctor can no longer look upon the ninety-nine patients who do well, but only on the one who has had a problem. And looming over the physician’s head is the ever increasing cost of his or her malpractice insurance. There are many physicians who have to quit their profession because they could no longer afford the insurance rates. The responsibility lies not solely with the attorneys, but also with the litigious society they have nurtured and the public who feel that anything less than perfection should be financially compensated.

Something of the Old
An attractive young woman was found dead—with multiple stab wounds into her chest, plunging directly into her heart. Who is she? Why was she killed?
Ned is a freshman who greatly enjoyed literature. But there’s something wrong in his brain—seizures, blank episodes, no memory of recent things or events—that he needs to undergo surgery to set his brain nerves right. This part of the brain is very sensitive, because the neurosurgeons are working fairly close to the intellectual lobe of Glamus and the inhibition control center of Borzoi. What makes this brain area more interesting is that through a retrospective study comparing brains of criminal and normal individuals, many find out and believe that individuals who have a propensity for criminality have an increased probability for acting out if the inhibition center is abnormal.
As the police investigate the murder, they discover that the victim had a close and intimate relationship with Ned. When they ask Ned of his whereabouts during the night of the murder, he can’t remember anything.
As the police continue to probe, another young woman is murdered on campus. Ned was seen jumping out of his window minutes before the murder. When he was asked the following day about what happened, he didn’t know where he went and why he went out.
Could he be the real murderer?

The Cloak of Hippocrates:
The Cloak of Hippocrates is the compelling saga of Alex Morpheus, a boy growing up in nineteenth-century New England.
In his infancy, Alex is abandoned by his father after his mother dies in childbirth, and though the wealthy senior Morpheus supports him financially throughout his youth he is never a parent to the child. In fact, while Alex is in his early school years, his father moves to England, remarries, and has another family.
Alex, undaunted and even strengthened by his difficult childhood, develops into a distinguished scholar and surgeon, also marrying the daughter of an influential U.S. Senator and having two children. His father, in the meantime, is apparently associated with several heinous murders in London, a situation that inevitably draws Alex there and to a reunion with the man who abandoned him decades earlier.
Written in the style of Jean-Christophe and David Copperfield, this is a story rich with surprising twists and turns, including encounters with actual figures of that era, such as Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.; Emily Dickinson; Dr. William Halsted; and even Jack the Ripper, giving the story a strong and intriguing historical sense.

The Girl with Emerald Eyes
This exciting story opens with military turmoil and murder a thousand years ago in England. Then it moves swiftly to contemporary America, where Molly Parsons, a beautiful and spirited young graduate student, is drawn into a mystery from that medieval time and place.
Moving to England to study, she learns that during the Norman conquest of 1066, a manuscript was hidden then lost in an obscure monastery, where it lay buried for a millennium. When it is finally uncovered, its enormous historical value comes to the attention of various individuals, including Molly, who recognizes it as a priceless archaeological treasure. Others, with a similar recognition, are ready to steal it, sell it, and—as necessary—kill for it.
In the adventure that follows, Molly adds her assertive personality and intellectual strength to the police investigation of theft and murder. She tangles with many people, including dedicated monks, a charming fellow scholar, a ruthless and embittered individual who kills people without remorse, and—Ogana Leeds, a black African intellectual who suffers cruelly from birth defects. Molly, initially repulsed by Ogana, is finally moved by him to reexamine her deepest feelings about life, emotion, and her responsibilities to others.
The Death of America ?
Author Joel Berman presents his insight which attempts to outline and discuss the principles that seem to be disappearing from public life under the aura of intellectual apathy, misplaced directions, and the deterioration of national pride, family, business, and scholarly values.

It covers a wide range of subjects including character, work ethic, classical and modern education, addiction to computer games, chapters on information, knowledge, understanding, and wisdom, as well as the responsibility of the nation, the community and the family in changing the quality of education in America.
Much of the information in the book is well documented with a bibliography of 332 references in conjunction with the author’s views and recommendations for the future. It is a timely and eye-opening book, which will be of value to parents, teachers, and students alike, and could become a standard reference book for every grade school, high school, and university in America.
