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
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
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

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.
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
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.
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.
