Terry Cronin

Author Terry Croninabout this book: This story of a dermatologist detective who helps the Miami police solve murder mysteries came to me when my sister's dog "dude" was accidentally poisoned. This tragedy reminded me of my experiences in Latin America and the story just grew from there. My interests in the skin, tattoos, and mysteries helped flesh out the reality-based world of Dr. Harry Poe.

The idea that Americans would travel to foreign nations to receive cut-rate cosmetic surgery has been referred to as scalpel tourism and is one very good reason that government bodies should resist taxing these procedures as it may drive patients to less safer outlets. I thought this phenomenon was ripe for telling a saucy tale involving tattoos, illicit cosmetic surgery and murder and juxtaposed in this milieu would be the international intrigue regarding modern day Venezuela and south Florida.

Dr. Poe is certainly a dedicated and knowledgeable physician but it is his passion to prevent skin cancer that seems to make him at once lovable but at the same time just a little irritating. As if he wants to stop everyone from having fun in the sun. As the story unfolds the reader realizes that the messages we get from our culture celebrate the sun and that Dr. Poe while well intentioned is swimming against a very strong current.
