Urologist, surgeon and author Dr. Kelly Parsons spoke at the Rancho Santa Fe Library April 20 about his latest book, “Under the Knife,” which was published in February by St. Martin’s Press. The event was sponsored by the RSF Library Guild. Parsons’ new novel- his second - is about a vengeful, grieving husband who stalks the surgeon whom he blames for his young wife’s untimely death during an operation. His first book, “Doing Harm,” which came out in 2014, is about a serial killer on the loose in a hospital. In both books, he used his medical knowledge to provide detail and immerse his readers in the experience that he conjured on the page. For more information, visit
