North Lan­caster area physi­cian and au­thor, Melissa Yuan-Innes, is pre­par­ing to launch her next novel.

Death Flight, which de­buts Sept. 6, is about a doc­tor who is trapped on a plane with a killer. As she bat­tles to save lives, she won­ders if she, her­self, might be the mur­derer. Let’s let the book’s blurb take it away: “When Dr. Hope Sze flies to Los An­ge­les to re­unite with her soul mate, she ex­pects Botoxed blon­des with Brazil­ian wax jobs, not ter­ror at 35,000 feet in the air.

“Yet on their way home, with 1000 miles to go and nowhere to land, she and Dr. John Tucker must strive to save one man’s life.

“Hope and Tucker have no sur­gi­cal equip­ment. No sur­geon on board. And, as first year fam­ily medicine res­i­dents, al­most no ex­pe­ri­ence. “But right this sec­ond, they’ll try any­thing. “Es­pe­cially Hope, be­cause min­utes be­fore, she might have ac­ci­den­tally helped to kill the man gasp­ing at her feet.”

Dr. Yuan-Innes, who writes un­der the pen name Melissa Yi, will be at the Mart­in­town Mill on Sun­day, Aug. 26 at 1 p.m.

Other dates in­clude the Alexan­dria library on Sept. 27 at 6:30 p.m. and the Corn­wall library on Sept. 30 at 2 p.m.

Her Hope Sze se­ries has earned much praise and many ac­co­lades. The Globe and Mail de­clared Hu­man Re­mains to be one of the best Cana­dian sus­pense books to read at the cot­tage while CBC’s The Next Chap­ter Mys­tery Panel said Stock­holm Syn­drome was “one of the best crime nov­els of the sea­son.”
