“I’VE SAVED MANY LIVES. WOULD YOU TRUST ME WITH YOURS?”
Set to be released in May 2022, Do No Harm by Jack Jordan follows surgeon Anna Jones whose son has been kidnapped. To save his life, she has been given a choice. Kill a patient on the operating table, or never see him again.
Thank you to Tandem Collective, Simon & Schuster, and The Likely Suspects team for inviting me to join in the readalong for this book and for a free proof in exchange for an honest review.
Do No Harm is a fast-paced and gripping thriller that’s full of tension from the opening chapter. The synopsis alone will get your heartbeat racing. And because you have no idea about how things will turn out, the unrelenting pressure doesn’t relent until the very end.
Told through three perspectives – Dr Anna Jones, DI Rachel Conaty and scrubs nurse Margot – the alternating narratives constantly leave you questioning who to side with, hoping that one character doesn’t ruin the chances for another.
The only reason I haven’t rated this book higher is that I don’t tend to enjoy political thrillers, as I like mine to revolve around psychopaths rather than criminal gangs. So don’t let this put you off, as that’s just a personal preference. And although I find political thrillers much harder to engage with emotionally, I still had a lot of fun reading this one.
The final few chapters are full of high-octane thrills that will have you racing to the end. And with a few added twists, you’re sure to need a lie down after finishing. Just maybe not with Anna Jones at your bedside…
