About this title
Adventure/suspense: Either Troy Simon has the inside scoop on a dirty case of medical malpractice or he has unearthed a document that implicates the hospital in an insidious scheme to develop a pristine tract of land. In either case, the twenty-four-year-old medical student is forced to abandon his studies and run for his life.From the Author:
During my first year in medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, I partook in anatomy dissections in a laboratory located on a sky-high floor of a towering building that overlooked the city. Each glance out the window afforded a panoramic view the Bay Area -- Oakland and the East Bay; Alcatraz; Sausalito; and the Golden Gate Bridge opening to a seemingly endless Pacific. Ships laden with containers eased in and out of the bay as the morning wore on. Fog came and went as it pleased, but in the views, and in the sound of gusts blowing through windows opened just enough to allow fresh air to enter, the mind had a way of wandering just a bit. And thus Stand at Bay was born.
San Francisco and the Caribbean are, in some ways, natural partners for the backdrop of a novel because each affords boundless waterborne beauty. In the summer between my freshman and sophomore years in college, I traveled for two months as a vagabond throughout the Leeward and Windward Islands of the Caribbean, stopping as a bird might on each island in a north-south migration. In the process, I discovered that each drop of land dotting the magnificent turquoise sea hosted its own personality. And so why not create a make-believe island and call it "Solitaire"? A perfect place for a wayward medical student to meet, perhaps, the woman of his life.
