I was reading my email this morning and one of the threads was crime writers.
A few years ago the Lincoln Public Library was fortunate to have Dr. Ross Pennie come and discuss his books.
This was the first time I was introduced to the character, Dr. Zol Szabo, a medical health officer at Hamilton-Lakeshore, Public Health Clinic. Pennies' novels take place in the Hamilton, Niagara Region. Which I find fantastic; I get very excited when I can recognize an area or place when I am reading a book.
Dr. Ross Pennies' books are medical thrillers that could possibly happen; epidemic outbreaks, tainted prescription drugs and more. His novels are fast paced and very hard to put down once you start reading. I recommend his novels if you like Kathy Reichs.
Here is a short bio about Dr. Ross Pennie from the Good Reads Website.
His award-winning memoir of Papua New Guinea, The Unforgiving Tides (2004), continues to delight readers with its grit and charm. His debut mystery novel, Tainted: A Dr. Zol Szabo Medical Mystery, is garnering terrific reviews on PW, Booklist, Amazon, the Brantford Expositor, and the Hamilton Spectator. Father of two grown children, Ross lives with his wife in southern Ontario.
