Your Life in Their Hands: Simon Stephenson, Jack Jordan and Eve Smith
Friday 16th September from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm BST
Meet three writers who are at the beating heart of the medical thriller renaissance and are guaranteed to make your pulse race. In Simon Stephenson’s harrowing Sometimes People Die, a young Scottish doctor becomes aware of a slew of deaths in an overworked and underfunded east London hospital. Do No Harm, the blockbuster from Jack Jordan, sees a skilled surgeon facing a nightmare choice – to break her most sacred oath by taking a life or to lose her kidnapped son. Eve Smith’s dystopian medical thriller Off Target is set in a near future world where genetic engineering has become the norm and the search for the perfect baby has horrific consequences. The event will be chaired by Dr Liam Bell.
