According to Grisham, his newest release, The Tumor, is the most important book he's ever written. It's a work of fiction but it gives an account of how a new medical technology could change the world of medicine by using ultrasound. Here's a blurb of the story:
"THE TUMOR follows the present day experience of the fictional patient Paul, an otherwise healthy 35-year-old father who is diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Grisham takes readers through a detailed account of Paul’s treatment and his family’s experience that doesn’t end as we would hope. Grisham then explores an alternate future, where Paul is diagnosed with the same brain tumor at the same age, but in the year 2025, when a treatment called focused ultrasound is able to extend his life expectancy."
Grisham feel so passionately about this that he's giving the book away for free over at Amazon. Click HERE to get your free Kindle copy.
