John Gordon Sinclair stars as Scotland's most celebrated doctor in six more BBC Radio dramatisations. Dr Finlay is back with his black bag, ready to remedy all manner of ailments suffered by his patients in the Scottish Highland town of Levenford. In "The Catch", Finlay moons over Nurse Angus while Dr Cameron gets two arch enemies to look after each other. Scarlet fever hits Levenford in "The Fever" and Finlay decides to do a little investigative work - with disastrous results. In "Miracle by Lestrange", Finlay and Cameron find themselves out of favour as alternative medicine takes over the town, and in "Birth and Death" a baby manages to teach the two doctors a lesson in humility. A fish bone promises Finlay a fast fortune in "The Golden Fishbone", and finally, in "The Match", Finlay plays a dangerous game when flirting with man-eater Georgina McNab. But will his plan to make Nurse Angus jealous pay off? 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Ashton. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bbcw/005914/bk_bbcw_005914_sample.mp3.

Do you want to give the readers such a vivid experience that they feel the events of the story are real and they're right there? Do you want them to forget their own world and worries, and live in the main character's head and heart? The magic wand for achieving this is Deep Point of View. Readers love it, because it gives them the thrill of becoming a different person. The reader doesn't just read a story about a gladiator in the arena, an heiress in a Scottish castle, an explorer in the jungle, a courtesan in Renaissance Venice - she becomes that gladiator, heiress, explorer, or courtesan. In this book, I'll reveal the powerful techniques employed by best-selling authors, and I'll show you how to apply them to rivet your readers. I'll start with the basics of Point of View - if you're already familiar with the concept, you can treat them as a refresher - and then guide you to advanced strategies for taking your reader deep. This is not a beginners' book. It assumes that you have mastered the basics of the writer's craft and know how to create compelling fictional characters. If you like, you can use this book as a self-study class, approaching each chapter as a lesson and completing the assignments at the end of each session. 1. Language: English.
