Thriller cleared for take-off
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.”
