The Case Of The Organic Chemist

Kindle Price: $2.99
CreateSpace $9.99

The Case of the Organic Chemist is the second thriller in the medical mystery fiction series concerning Dr. MacArthur Donne, a medical doctor, private investigator/detective, and his womanizing sidekick, Jack Robbie. The boys start with a canoe trip down the Colorado River, below the low water bridge in Austin, Texas, which turns into a thriller as they nearly wash on down to the ocean, and miss their rendezvous in Utley, Texas. MacArthur and Jack are called later to investigate the death of a PhD chemist at the University of Chicago who has a romantic affair with a co-worker and dies mysteriously.

What was it that invaded Louise Hoelscher’s body and how did she contact it? The Mayo Clinic couldn’t figure it out. A true medical mystery ensues so that after her death, the police solve nothing but her husband needing to know what really happened, contacts Dr. Donne.

Love ’em and leave ’em Jack, who previously had dispatched a string of unfulfilled hospital ward clerk secretaries, becomes mesmerized by Anna, a young, holy Catholic girl he meets on the river trip. MacArthur, still suffering from the loneliness of the death of his wife, Jenny, contacts Rosamonde, the English girl from the first book in the MacArthur Donne mystery series, And If Thine Eye Offend Thee, for a doctor romance adventure, this time in Austin, Texas.
A medical thriller and book written with significant suspense in the style of great literature and reminiscent of the relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, The Case of the Organic Chemist is fiction par excellence.

The_Mini_Neurology_S_Cover_for_Kindle (1)

The Mini Neurology Series Volume 1:  Migraine

 In a world of big scientific books on headache and migraine there is a plea for a smaller book. This is it! A short but rather complete 46 page book on the definition of migraine, the lifestyle to live to have fewer attacks, and acute and preventive therapy of migraine. Throw in a short chapter on one of the most important subjects on migraine–medication overuse headache, and comments on sinus headache and allergy headache and you’ve got it…the first book in the Mini Neurology Series, on Migraine.

Transient Global Amnesia


Transient Global Amnesia


Britt Talley Daniel MD



Transient global amnesia (TGA) is one of the most mysterious clinical conditions in Neurology.  Occurring usually only once in middle to late age, the affected person is suddenly robbed of memory, for the past, the present, and briefly, the future.  Repetitive questioning without learning the answers supplied marks the typical case and frightened family members and significant others labor to bring the patient into hospital for scanning and medical evaluation.  Although the cut off time for duration is 24 hours, most cases clear in 4-6 hours, with no memory of what happened during the elapsed time.

I have reviewed the 2 existing textbooks on TGA, the last of which was published in 199, 1 plus over 500 articles from the rich troth of medical literature.  I review the early history of amnesia and early articles in the psychiatric literature leading up to Bender’s seminal article in 1955.  I divided the subject into clinical, EEG, CAT scan, SPECT, PET, sonogram and MRI papers and then discussed the literature on associated medical conditions, review articles, and aetiology, ending with a chapter on clinical work up and treatment.

This book is an extensive review of the subject with 554 bibliography references and 45 digital images written especially for the clinical behavioral neurologist, psychiatrist, or psychologist.  It is the first modern review of the subject in 21 years and it discusses the exciting DWI/MRI findings which have set the neurology world on fire.  No recent article or text has reviewed transient global amnesia in such detail as this book.  This same painstaking and elaborate literature review style is evidenced throughout the book, placing into one compendium a body of data and references on TGA not available anywhere else.

This book is available in print with CreateSpace and as an eBook  with Amazon.

    Readers’ Comments 

    “Empowering Book”

    “For All Who Suffer Migraines”

    “This book not only explains types of migraines (they can be very different) but also covers evidence based treatments including stopping the pain- preventative medicines along with lifestyle and dietary changes.  It is amazing the many things that trigger migraines that we can control.  I am an emergency nurse and have recommended this book to my migraine patients as well as some of the nurses and doctors I work with.  This is a book you will find yourself going back to – important information presented logically without confusing medical jargon.”

    “I urge anyone who suffers from migraine headaches to buy this book. It costs much more than other titles on the subject. But I think it’s worth the price. Dr. Daniel provides the best explanations I’ve seen on where and how migraines start and how to manage the illness.”

Ebook Short Description

And if thine eye offend thee is about the work of Dr. MacArthur Donne, from Austin, Texas who is called to London with his rambunctious side kick and good friend, Jack Robbie, to investigate the uncertain death of an Englishwoman. Arriving in the midst of the Mad Cow epidemic and getting nowhere by interviewing the deceased’s bumbling general physician, Dr. Donnne takes over and solves the case.

Extended Description

And If Thine Eye Offend Thee, is a story about a mystery solving physician, Dr. MacArthur Donne, from Austin, Texas. Dr. Donne, accompanied by his rambunctious side kick and good friend, Jack Robbie, is called to Biggin Hill, England to investigate the cause of the death of an Englishwoman, Mrs. Martha Lindsay. Saddened by the recent death of his own wife but energized by the prospect of an interesting problem, Dr. Donne and Jack arrive in the midst of the Mad Cow epidemic. Getting nowhere by interviewing the stricken woman’s mumbling general physician, Dr. Donne takes over and solves the mystery.

As a neurologist I have known and cared for persons stricken with Creutzfeldt Jakob disease, an illness of the brain caused by microscopic bits of protein called prions. When the Mad Cow illness struck England, it was discovered to be a similar illness caused by viral infection. The macabre practice of serving cattle ground up feed that included brain tissue caused the problem. The story was suggested by an article in the British Medical Journal and I wanted to share the mystery of the Faustian results of such a bizarre practice.
