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.

Check it out!

    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?

  • EMT Hannah says:

    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.

    Thoughts on Ebola
    Kent, despite all those deaths, flu still doesn't have the mortality rate that Ebola does. I think concern is warranted.

The first two books that originally were self published, were re-edited by my publisher and re-released. The third book in the series, Reaper's Requiem, will be released on December 6, 2014.…

    Thoughts on Ebola
    We are only talking about one airline and two weekly flights to Monrovia and Senagal because the plane lands in Dakkar. I can tell as I have been in both of these airports that prior to entry your temp is taken and a chlorine hand wash is required, this is also repeated before boarding. Again…

    Thoughts on Ebola
    Every year 37000 people in the US die of the flu, for which we have a vaccine and OTC meds. 10000 Ebola cases and we loose our minds...why? Is this the CNN effect, whipping up hysteria ? Why do we not sequestering those with the flu? Quarantine is not the answer for non symptomatic people…

    Thoughts on Ebola
    this appears to becomming political. The lack of an african quarantine is because if the government orders it, the airlines can go back to the government for lost revinue when its over. If they do it on their own its a business descision and have to eat the loss. The appomtment of a non doctor…
