Dr. Randall Archer is a misfit…

…in the brutal blue-collar home where he grew up.

…as a sixteen-year-old escaping to college, then medical school, on a full scholarship to Harvard.

…in the highest echelons of Boston society, where the woman he marries and the blueblood research partner with whom he shares his laboratory belong.

Even Archer’s brilliance as a pathologist catapults him into direct and dangerous conflict with the medical establishment he fought so hard to join.

As the Great Depression presses down around him, Archer teeters at the edge of a precipice. He must choose between his hard-won career and the sacred oaths he took as a doctor and scientist—before all his choices are lost forever.

Our Guest Writer and Interlocutor:

Audrey Gale

Audrey Gale long dreamed of being a writer, but never anticipated the circuitous road she’d take to get there. After twenty-plus years in the banking industry, she grew tired of corporate gamesmanship and pursued her master’s in fiction writing at the University of Southern California. Her first novel, a legal thriller entitled The Sausage Maker’s Daughters, was published under the name A.G.S. Johnson. The novel explores one woman’s struggle to find her place amidst the upheaval of the radical 1960s. Her second, The Human Trial, is the first book in a medical-thriller trilogy inspired by Gale’s own experiences with the gap between traditional medicine and approaches based on the findings of the great physicists of the 20th Century like Einstein and Bohr. The Human Trial is #1 in Depression-Era Fiction since the book came out on Amazon, and was also initially #1 best seller in Medical Thrillers. Both The Sausage Maker’s Daughters and The Human Trial incorporate Gale’s fascination with historical fiction and scientific research, and always with women’s struggles to find their places.
