The Phineas Mann series offers the reader medical thrillers spanning fifty years.
In Breath and Mercy, we meet medical student Phineas Mann in 1976 as he witnesses death for the first time. Years later and fresh from specialty training in pulmonary and intensive care, he is forced to make agonizing life and death medical decisions during the aftermath of a cataclysmic hurricane. These decisions threaten his career and family and will haunt his future.
A Swarm in May is set in 1998, and an unexpected visitor from Phineas' past arrives in his intensive care unit. He is forced to confront her companion, a violent racist who is the son of his critically ill patient with tetanus. When the elderly father has unexplained setbacks, the racist son escalates threats against the medical team to horrifying levels.
We enter 2024 in Nature's Bite with its worsening climate change and political polarization. A mysterious visit from FBI agents interrupts Phineas' evening. His work as the Principal Investigator in a Phase 3 trial of a novel asthma drug begins with Marie Porter, a young doctor with a past. Then, as an affliction surfaces to hinder Phineas' abilities, the two doctors become embroiled, against their wishes, in intrigue at the highest levels.
