“Newly minted chief resident at Boston Memorial
Hospital Noah Rothauser is swamped in his new position, from managing the
surgical schedules to dealing with the fallouts from patient deaths. Known for
its medical advances, the famed teaching hospital has fitted several ORs as
“hybrid operating rooms of the future”–an improvement that seems
positive until an anesthesia error during a routine procedure results in the
death of an otherwise healthy man. Noah suspects Dr. William Mason, an
egotistical, world-class surgeon, of an error during the operation and of
tampering with the patient’s record afterward. But Mason is quick to blame
anesthesiologist, Dr. Ava London. When more anesthesia-related deaths start to
occur, Noah is forced to question all of the residents on his staff, including
Ava, and he quickly realizes there’s more to her than what he sees. A
social-media junkie, Ava has created multiple alternate personas for herself on
the Internet. With his own job and credibility now in jeopardy, Noah must
decide which doctor is at fault and who he can believe–before any more lives
are lost”– Provided by publisher. Unrated. 2017. Unified English Braille

William Blake was one of the finest craftsmen of his time, a

his poetic aspirations. The forty-five poems which Blake originally etched by
hand are faithfully reproduced here with the same care and attention to detail
