Judyth Piazza chats with Dr. David Colgrove, Author of Six P.M. Sunday
David Colgrove is a surgeon practicing in Southern California. He has spent thousands of hours in the Emergency Room at some of the busiest Trauma Centers in the country. Six PM Sunday, a medical drama with heart, is his third novel. He is currently at work on his next novel, Pandemic, due out in November 2006.
Six PM Sunday" is a novel of life, death, love, betrayal, and redemption set in contemporary Orange County, California.
Steven Adler, M.D., twenty-five-year-old chief resident at U.C. Irvine`s Trauma Center, is the best at what he does. He`s never lost a salvageable patient, never lost his poise in the worst of circumstances. And UCI`S Trauma Center sees the worst: gunshots, stab wounds, horrendous freeway crashes, severed limbs, a harrowing smorgasbord of tragedy twenty-four/seven.
Motorcycle rider with a punctured lung? Steven will have the thoracostomy tube inserted before the medical student helping him has even snapped on her gloves. Construction worker with a grievous brain injury? Adler will have Mannitol running in the IV and the Neuro-Surgery resident on his way from upstairs before they wheel the poor guy to CT.
And then there`s Adler`s social life. As empty and cold as a divorce lawyer`s heart.
Adler`s married to his job. Hooked on adrenaline, pulling double shifts, foregoing sleep in a race to save lives. But still looking. Looking at his gorgeous co-workers. Looking for his version of the perfect woman: Intelligent, beautiful, poised, and successful.
Adler finds what he`s been looking for in the most unusual circumstances imaginable.
He`s known Natalie Bogner for years. She`s the queen of UCI Medical Center. Unapproachable, smoking-hot OB resident with an IQ of 178; operates better than her supervising attending surgeons. What more could Adler wish for?
"Six PM Sunday," a cautionary tale about life, love, and the insidious desire hidden deep down in all of us. The dream to have it all.
