Lawrence Gold, M.D.about this book: The Sixth Sense is another in the Brier Hospital Series. The novel main character is Arnie Roth a family practitioner who become ill during an epidemic of encephalitis. The disease is virulent, and Arnie nearly dies. When he awakens, he gradually realizes that something has changed. He relishes life as never before, but in addition, his sense of smell has increase manifold. He can detect smells as never before and he enjoys the olfactory delights of the world. Soon, however, he notes that all smells are not pleasant and he become overwhelmed with sensory overload. Moreover, he's able to detect chemicals beyond ordinary smell, a sixth sense.
Over time, the overload challenges his sanity.
Arnie uses his newly acquired skill in his work as he's able to diagnose disease solely by its smell. He can tell when people are lying to him. He know when his wife is horny.
In addition, Arnie's talent is separating him from friends and colleagues as he knows that people will be uncomfortable with him and his nose.
From a five star review: Dr. Gold is good enough reason to troll for self-published books at bargain prices. You would have to enroll in medical school or pay through the nose for an array of expert medical opinions to get this much information about common conditions. THE SIXTH SENSE, like Gold's FIRST DOI NO HARM and NO CURE FOR MURDER, is chock full of protocols, precisely detailed. Set at the fictional Brier Hospital in the San Francisco Bay area, this plot revolves around several cases that baffle the health care professionals. A larger than usual number of patients are not responding as expected to their treatments; at the same time, the hospital watchdogs note an uptick in dosages of certain drugs. The pace quickens when Arnold Roth, MD, a family practitioner, wakes from a coma with a heightened sense of smell. His new ability becomes personally inconvenient but professionally advantageous. In the process of addressing various crises, the hospital staff reveal much about the realities of cancer, heart attacks, pulmonary distress, and other common conditions (some caused by being in the hospital).
