My latest book was published today. Mortal Men is a novel about paramedics in Hartford, Connecticut in the 1990s when a gang war was raging in the city. It is a work of fiction. Here is the official description:

Paramedic Troy Johnson battles trauma and sickness on the streets of Hartford, Connecticut. When a fellow medic is shot responding to a 911 call, a grief-stricken Troy vows to avenge his friend, while struggling to come to grips with his own mortality.

Mortal Men examines the ancient bonding between friends and partners who count on each other to make it safely home. Written by veteran paramedic Peter Canning, author of the acclaimed Paramedic: On the Front Lines of Medicine and Rescue 471: A Paramedicís Stories, Mortal Men provides a rare view into the real-life world of street medicine and into the lives of the men and women who fight its battles.

The book is available as an electronic book for Kindle, Nook or any other e-reader.

Here is a link to some of the places to buy it. The books sells for $3.99.

Barnes and Noble

Amazon

Smashwords

Scribd

It should soon be available on all ebook platforms including Apple and Sony.

I’ll be writing more about the book next week.

    Wonderful book. Many reminders of my own time as a paramedic/field preceptor. Thank you for giving a voice to the often unsung heros in soiled capes. Your blunt, yet painfully compassionate view of EMS professionals was spot on! I’ve already purchased your other books, and follow your blog, keep up the great work, and thank you!

    Any chance of putting this into print for us old-fashioned book types?

    Would really love to see this in print. I’ve been looking into a kindle or book for the convienence at the station but prefer an old fashioned book.

    As a 24 year medic, I finally figured out it wasn't me. Thank you for your article. You can't teach that in any classroom. I have always found that empathy is a great tool. Use it to benefit the patient and teach others what it is all about.

    As a 30 year, now retired medic I completely agree. There is nothing wrong with second guessing although one should go with their gut. There are times to be aggressive and times to not. Also humor is one of the most powerful pre-hospital tools in the toolbox although it can't be taught. When appropriate it…

    I totally agree. To me those make great paramedics. I work as a Operation Supervisor and encourage teamwork/backup whenever the situation calls for it. I encourage feedback from a difficult call my crews responded to. 1) they have the chance to recall the events that took place and they may self evaluate the call. 2)…

    Twenty-five years as an ER doc in level one trauma centers has me in total agreement. I Interestingly what you say regarding paramedics also, in many ways, applies to ER docs. "Tries to learn from each call...puts the patient first." A great post. I salute to your wisdom!
