Read full description of the books Of Flesh and Blood:Remember those old insider’s industry novels such as Hotel, Airport, Strong Medicine by Arthur Hailey and other medical sagas written by authors long gone? I used to love those kinds of books and have missed them so I am glad Daniel Kalla took a departure from his popular medical thrillers that dealt with superbugs, pandemics, medical terrorism, and plagues to write this novel. This is a multi-generational novel set in a large medical complex and teaching hospital outside of Seattle. The story pits two families against each other over the fate of the hospital and exposes their secrets while at the same time the complex is battling a nasty virus which is striking the patients.
Read information about the authorBorn, raised, and still residing in Vancouver, Kalla spends his days (and sometimes nights) working as an ER Physician in an urban teaching hospital.
The idea for his first medical thriller, PANDEMIC, sprang from his clinical experience in facing the SARS crisis of 2003. He has written five science thrillers and or medical mysteries, delving into themes and topics as diverse as superbugs, drug addiction, prions, DNA evidence, pandemics and patient abuse.
Kalla’s last book, THE FAR SIDE OF THE SKY, is a historical novel set in Second World War Shanghai against the dramatic backdrop of converging cultures and ideologies. His latest, RISING SUN, FALLING SHADOW continues the story of the Adler family through 1943, the bleakest year in war-torn Shanghai.
His books have been translated into eleven languages, and two have been optioned for feature films.
Daniel received his MD from the University of British Columbia. He is married and the proud father of two girls in a home predominated by the XX chromosome (even his beloved Labrador retriever, Lola, is female.)
