A. Scott Pearson, associate professor of surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, will appear on A Word on Words with John Seigenthaler 10:30 a.m. Sunday, July 17. The program airs on Nashville Public Television.

Pearson will discuss Public Anatomy, his second medical thriller featuring Memphis surgeon Eli Branch, who must unravel a string of mysterious deaths set in motion after a colleague performs robotic surgery.

“A tantalizing premise combined with tight suspense makes this one delicious tale. You’ll enjoy the ride,” writes Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The Emperor’s Tomb.
