What can you tell us about the setting of this novel?

Although some of my novels have been set in Dallas, Texas (an area I know), most of my recent ones take place in fictional towns in Texas. To pick a name, I have to think of one and then check to make sure it isn’t a real place. Once I’ve settled on the name of the town, I usually model it after a mid-sized city in the area with which I’m familiar.

Who are the main characters, and what is at stake for them in this story?

One main character is Dr. Kirk Martin, a young cardiologist who frequently crosses swords with Dr. Cliff Hamilton, an older family practitioner who repeatedly exceeds the limits of his privileges. Kirk’s fiance, nurse Janet Rush, stands by him (and tries to shore up his faltering faith) when he is accused of Hamilton’s murder. At stake for Kirk is, at first, his freedom. Later, when yet another doctor dies, Kirk and Janet realize that he could be the next victim.

Which of the characters surprised you the most in this story, and how so?

Although Dr. Herbert Weller, an emergency room physician, starts out as an unlovable character, toward the end I found myself rooting for him. I can’t reveal why—the reader is going to have to come to the end of the novel to see.

How did the writing of this story impact you as a person or as an author?

As the plot continued to develop, I intended for Kirk to show increased faith and maturity. What I was surprised by was the way in which writing his character affected me, causing me to examine my life as well.

Why is this story important to you?

Usually it’s hard to come up with a new “theme” for each story of “medical mystery with heart,” but once I got into this one, I kept finding more messages that I wanted to include.

What would you like your readers to take away from this story?

Even when we walk away from God, He’s still there—and He’ll be there when we turn back to him.
