Praise for The Day After Midnight

"...the sequel has everything that made the first charming and lovable."

"...this book is even better than the first: It has real soul."

-The Berkshire Eagle


"...a satisfying and suspenseful crime novel and a love story to a marriage, life in the ER of a small hospital, and a beautiful part of the world, loved and described lovingly."

-The Independent



The Day After Midnight



It’s three years later and Dr. Charlie Davids thinks he’s said goodbye to Sal and his days as the ER doc on call for the Mob. He has married Patty, and they have settled into a quiet life of domesticity. But Charlie can’t seem to put the past behind him, and he soon finds himself in another round of trouble. Faced with hostile visits from menacing strangers and repeated attempts on his life, Charlie must free himself from the underworld once and for all.

This time, however, the circumstances have changed, and Charlie doesn’t have to face the danger alone. Bolstered by a network of loyal friends, Charlie takes on both the Mob and the FBI in this next installment in the Dr. Charlie Davids series. Richard Greene’s second novel, The Day After Midnight, is a crime novel that is original and heartening as it explores issues of individual accountability, social responsibility, and living life to its fullest.

Advance Praise for Henderson's Equation

“As a reader, I was swept away by the narrative and deeply moved by the characters. It is smart, gripping, poignant. I’m no judge of fiction, but I do know fine writing. This is it. Best of all, it contained a wonderfully panoramic view of 20th century American science and history. I was—as my children like to say—blown away.”
-David Oshinsky, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Polio: An American Story

Praise for Dr. Lowenstein's previous books
“It is impossible to read this book and to fail to understand the ins and outs of the process and, moreover, to get an appreciation of the wonders and delicacy of the intricate organization that leads to what we call life.”
-Isaac Asimov

"Lowenstein has a flair for storytelling…"
-New England Journal of Medicine

"Engaging and poignant…this collection of medical musings…are exactly the sort of thoughts you’d hope would be going through your doctor’s mind."

“Lowenstein reconnects us to the ideals of medicine… Read this.” -JAMA

From the first words of Lawrence J. Henderson’s opening lecture, “It all begins with water,” Aaron Weiss was riveted by the unconventional young professor’s way of thinking. Henderson’s quest for a greater understanding of the world had led him from the simple study of acid-base equilibrium to an examination of cosmic questions related to the “fit” between the properties of the most basic elements–hydrogen, carbon and oxygen–and how society, viewed as a regulated system, bears remarkable similarities to this fit on a grand scale.

A systems theory advocate, Henderson’s studies and writings gave rise to the concepts of dynamic equilibrium and to the Gaia hypothesis, which views the earth as a vast organism.

As his assistant, Aaron is witness to Henderson’s development of these theories. Away from New York’s Lower East Side for the first time, Aaron is forced to confront the differences between his own world, with its strong family ties and deep roots in Eastern European scholarship, and the world of Dr. Henderson, a leader of the Harvard establishment and one of the Boston Brahmins. The story is set against the background of the powerful social and intellectual forces of the time: World War I, the rise of fascism, the Sacco-Vanzetti trial, and the growing anti-Semitism at Harvard and elsewhere.


Dr. Jerome Lowenstein’s rich career in academic medicine has been devoted to teaching, research and the care of patients. He is the author of Acid and Basics, Oxford University Press, and The Midnight Meal and Other Essays About Doctors, Patients and Medicine, University of Michigan Press.  

Dr. Lowenstein’s interest in acid-base physiology and in the nature of relationships between physicians and patients made Henderson an ideal subject for the study of the relationship between his own ideas and those of this intellectual leader in science and medicine. Dr. Lowenstein is publisher of the Bellevue Literary Press and Editor for Nonfiction of the Bellevue Literary Review.

The Vanilla Envelope is a traditional murder mystery with an atypical detective. Tony Rizzuto is not a hard-boiled PI; he practices yoga, eats only cereal topped with a bizarre variety of fruits and vegetables, and feels true remorse when forced to resort to violence. Soon after he’s hired to investigate what appears to be a straightforward theft at a prominent nonprofit venue, the prime suspect turns up dead. So, Tony uses not force, but charm; not shadowy underworld sources, but former girlfriends, to get to the bottom of this increasingly complicated case.

Derek Gentile is an award-winning journalist for the Berkshire Eagle. He is the author of eight nonfiction books including The Complete Boston Red Sox, The Complete New York Yankees, and a history of professional basketball: Smooth Moves. This is his first novel.

Ruth Bass has written a rich, intimate, engrossing portrait of Rose—a child thrust into the demanding adult life of her 19th century New England homestead. Beautifully written, flowing with memorable characters—what a wonderful pleasure to read.
 -Gene Shalit, NBC-TV

You’ll just want to keep reading and reading this vividly told story of three motherless children: Abby and Charles and Rose, bereaved and beset but trying to “hold up” as best they can. The setting is richly evoked; the characters are utterly persuasive; and issues of loss and mourning, friendship and love, and the complexities of family life are explored with sensitivity and wisdom. Big sister Rose, the spunky heroine of this compelling tale, may well become a classic of young-adult literature.
-Judith Viorst, author of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good,
Very Bad Day
and The New York Times bestseller Necessary Losses.

This Rose is really a rose! Ruth Bass has managed to illustrate sorrow and gravity as they really do exist alongside humor and joy. It’s wonderful to find a book you can just sink into.
-Robb Forman Dew, Author of the National
Book Award winner: Dale Loves Sophie to Death

    “Your personal experiences are remarkable and resulted in an exercise of great courage on your part.”
   “Ms. Sorrentino, I am in your debt.”
Justice Harry A. Blackmun
Supreme Court of the United States

 In order to understand why abortion must be kept safe, legal and available  we must look at many of its aspects as they affect real people we know and  love. It is necessary to face the discussion head on by stripping the issue of  its mystery and baggage, and shining a light on abortion as a choice  relatively few women actually choose, but one which most Americans do not  wish to lose. The most rational way to approach this may be to look at  the personal side of that discussion and examine the rhetoric through a filter  of actual human experiences.
  These are people you know. So this is about them, and the issue that  affects all of us in the most personal and intimate way possible.

 Mary Ann Sorrentino, a leading abortion rights advocate and former  Executive Director of Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island, was publicly  declared excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church and called  “public enemy number one of the unborn.”

Life is pretty good for Charlie. He likes his job. He has enough time to go running, to see concerts and to enjoy the outdoors. And he has just met Patty, the woman with whom he wants to share his life.

But everything is about to change. Returning home one evening, he finds a balding, overweight mobster named Sal waiting in his living room. In semi-retirement, Sal handles the the employee health department for the local organized crime family. Sal tells Charlie that he has been chosen to be their new company Doc. Now Charlie’s time is not his own, and his life is in danger.
