Kindle book: http://amzn.to/qhJ3gr

Check out the book trailer! And below is a longer version pitch of Outcome.
I bet you’re curious. Wouldn’t it be astonishing to watch a major organ transplant in an O.R.?
The tension mounts. We know the players and how we got here. A deadly hurricane took a life but offers hope to another. A family with grief intertwines with a family encouraged by hope. What they don’t know is that the pilot and physicians involved are more complicated than meets the eye.
Diana Devlin is the pilot who flies the transplant surgeon, Dr. Bhagat, to perform the organ harvest. She’s a professional, too, as much in charge of people’s safety as he is in an operating room, but she’s never shared her cockpit with anyone like him. She’s been told that patients love him. He is the epitome of top-notched bedside manners.
Peter Devlin is the transplant patient’s anesthesiologist, the behind-the-scenes doctor. Dr. Bhagat’s compromising personality makes the O.R. an explosive place. Can the astute anesthesiologist ensure the patient’s safety during the harrowing liver transplant and get their patient to the I.C.U. alive?
Meanwhile, your pulled heartstrings will never be far from another main character. Putt-Putt is the organ donor’s dog, who escapes into the hurricane’s blowing sand and gusty wind, and must battle to survive. Despite people searching for him, circumstances keep Putt-Putt in the wrong places at the wrong times. His plight comes full circle to a surprising conclusion.
Around this novel’s initial central tragedy, there is guilt and anger, despair and hope, and loss and recovery. A world of characters spring to life. From Peru to Indiana, their lives weave together and their interactions change their course. Come feel relief and gratitude for the ability of the human soul, as well as a small homeless dog, to cope with the turbulence of life.
