A. John Elliot, M.D., is an old friend of mine who has written a wild ride of a historical novel called The Last Trumpet. He practiced in Rhode Island and Connecticut, and has lectured widely. His teaching experience includes Yale Medical School and in Tibet and China, where he is an honorary professor at the West China Medical School. He has also taught in Tibet. Elliot has done extensive nonprofit and for-profit medical consulting work. In 1994, Dr. Elliot was the Republican candidate for in Rhode Island Second Congressional District in 1994.
In the Thirties, we find the book’s deeply flawed German hero, Andreas von Eckhart, as a tortured yet brilliant physician, famed mountain climber, war veteran and womanizer and a loner who trusts no one. Now that his general father is dead and his sister has mysteriously disappeared, Andreas is left to wander within his inherited castle and contemplate his place in a chaotic world.
The Last Trumpet takes you on his torturous, colorful journey from London to the Himalayas in search of the truth amid the evils of the Third Reich.
No, I’m not getting any money from his book sales!
