Do No Harm by Jack Jordan @JackJordanBooks @simonschusterUK @RandomTTours #DoNoHarm

Ssssqqquuuuuuuueeeeeeaaaaalllllll !!!! Yes it’s my turn in the blog tour for Jack Jordan’s Do No Harm. I’ve been rather excited about this since it was announced last year. I was blown away by Jack’s My Girl when I read it 6 years ago and I’ve loved his books since!

Massive thanks to the lovely Anne Cater of Random Things Tours for inviting me on the blog tour and to my #glamma Jo Robertson of My Chestnut Reading Tree for sending me the proof copy she got. I also preordered an e-copy that arrived on my kindle last week.

The Blurb

My son has been taken. And I’ve been given a choice…
Kill a patient on the operating table. Or never see him again.

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.

Could you kill another person to save your own child?

When heart surgeon Dr Anna Jones returns home to find her son kidnapped, she is forced to make an impossible choice. Kill a high-profile patient on the operating table, or never see her son again.

Told from the perspectives of Anna, her scrub nurse, Margot, who has her own secrets to protect and DI Rachel Conaty, Anna must first make the impossible decision…


What Did I Think?

Oooof!!! A couple of exceedingly fast chapters in, I’m hooked! Not just hooked, more than hooked but I don’t know what the verb is so let’s go über-hooked. I don’t normally do thrillers with a medical vibe but I’m all in with Jack Jordan’s new thriller. A surgeon with a moral dilemma – save the patient or save her son? Abide by the Hippocratic oath or protect the most precious thing in her life? What a choice?!?

Anna’s predicament is not one I’d wish on my own worst enemy. How can you possibly chose to kill someone? I was desperate to see what Anna decided and the mountain of repercussions following her decision. What I should have accounted for (and didn’t despite having read Jordan’s previous thrillers) is one helluva ride down a dark and twisted path. I hit potholes and speed bumps but my journey did not slow down. It was like being in a rally car at high speed!

My initial reaction as I finished was bloody hell – what the hell have I just read?! I though Jordan’s My Girl was a twisted read (and it so is) but Do No Harm lulled me into a false sense of security before hitting me with one hell of a sucker punch of a finale!

Jordan’s thriller just keep getting better and better. And they get harder and harder to review for fear of spoiling the ride for another reader. Jack Jordan, Do No Harm is phenomenal. I’m just blooming glad I had my own major surgery before reading it!!!

Who Is Jack Jordan?

Jack Jordan is the global bestselling author of Anything for Her, My Girl, A Woman Scorned, Before Her Eyes, and Night by Night and an Amazon No.1 bestseller in the UK, Canada, and Australia. After selling at auction in the UK and numerous foreign territories, Do No Harm is set to be the thriller of the summer in 2022. The idea forDo No Harm came to Jack after undergoing a minor medical procedure where he had to be sedated and trust strangers with his welfare. After the anaesthesia wore off, Jack began scribbling his notes, wondering to himself just how iron-clad a surgeon’s oath is, and what it would take to break it…
