Do No Harm
By Jack Jordan
It is time for Do Not Harm to be published in paperback. So join me in saying Happy paperback publication to Jack Jordan, author of medical thriller – Do No Harm.
MY CHILD HAS BEEN TAKEN.
AND I’VE BEEN GIVEN A CHOICE . . .
KILL A PATIENT ON THE OPERATING TABLE
OR LOSE MY SON FOREVER.
The man lies on the table in front of me.
As a surgeon, it’s my job to save him.
As a mother, I know I must kill him.
You might think that I’m a monster.
But there really is only one choice.
I must get away with murder.
Or I will never see my son again.
I’VE SAVED MANY LIVES.
WOULD YOU TRUST ME WITH YOURS?

Anna is a cardiothoracic surgeon. She knows the mantra and code of do no harm. She knows she has life and death literally in her hands. She has an unusual decision to make -who to save? Her son or her patient. The patient could become the next Prime Minister, but her son has been abducted and those who have him demand the patient is killed or she won’t see him again. That’s the threat she is faced with.
Jack Jordan has created such a tense atmosphere that you embody the emotions and intensity of the writing that twists so much in its head as Anna’s career, along with her promise made with it hanging by a thread.
It is essentially a story about morals and how things can become muddied as life isn’t always so simple. It’s quite multilayered with it asking what you would do in Anna’s situation, when things aren’t as clear cut as say, a scalpel making its first incision.
It’s quite a psychological drama that unfolds with Anna being emotionally and morally torn in different directions. In top of this, her scrub nurse is also having a hard time in her life.
It is pacy and has grip throughout and is very involving. It’s a book I recommend.
Thanks to Compulsive Readers and Simon and Schuster UK for a copy of the book and for inviting me to review.
