Jack Jordan: Do No Harm

Today it’s my turn on the blog tour for Do No Harm. My review is written with thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me on the blog tour and to the publisher for my copy of the book.

Blurb:

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?

Review:

Do No Harm starts with a bang and does not let go! I love the premise of the novel and it certainly raises questions about what you would do in Anna’s situation. It definitely lived up to its potential as I raced through the pages, desperate to see what Anna would do next. 

The novel is told from three different perspectives: Anna, Margot (one of Anna’s work colleagues) and Rachel, a detective inspector. This is a brilliant technique as it allows us to see each character’s weaknesses and flaws, and it means it’s often impossible to know who to trust. I was kept on my toes, especially as the plot gathers pace. 

I really enjoyed seeing Rachel’s viewpoint. She has an interesting background which adds an extra layer to the story. 

I will be honest, I thought I had this plot all figured out, but Jordan takes the idea much further than I ever imagined. As the story takes shape, the tension just rises and rises and there were many times I was holding my breath as the sense of danger increased.

Do No Harm is available from Amazon.
