Scalpel secrets

Cardiologist H.S. Rissam ventures into the dark territory of criminal-medical nexus

A private hospital that specialises in illegal trade of vital organs, is linked to the international trade in drugs and arms and to the terror syndicate operating across the planet — The Scalpel- Game Beneath is a book authored by eminent cardiologist H.S. Rissam.

The book takes the reader on a roller coaster ride across countries and continents and makes an attempt to trace a criminal-terrorist-medical-mafia nexus. Rissam says, “I would say that the book is medical fiction. However, I have kept the language simple to ensure that even a layman can even understand it easily.”

Does the book take inspiration from real life incidents? “The book is a work of fiction. Some of the incidents that find mention have been from my own experience.”

The book was born during a sabbatical in Paris some years ago. “The Parisian winter proved to be the best place to let the author in me come to life. I was writing for the past 20 years, but was not very confident about publishing my work. It was during this break that I decided to let my pen do the writing.”
