An Evening with Ambrose Parry (Chris Brookmyre and Dr Marisa Haetzman)

Thursday 30th August 19:00 - 20:00 at Newton Mearns

Waterstones Newton Mearns are thrilled to be hosting an evening with Ambrose Parry for a discussion about 'The Way of All Flesh'.
"Edinburgh, 1847. City of Medicine, Money, Murder.
In the city’s Old Town a number of young women have been found dead, all having suffered similarly gruesome ends. Across the city in the New Town, medical student Will Raven is about to start his apprenticeship with the brilliant and renowned Dr Simpson.

Simpson’s patients range from the richest to the poorest of this divided city. His house is like no other, full of visiting luminaries and daring experiments in the new medical frontier of anaesthesia. It is here that Raven meets housemaid Sarah Fisher, who recognises trouble when she sees it and takes an immediate dislike to him. She has all of Raven’s intelligence but none of his privileges, in particular his medical education.
With each having their own motive to look deeper into the city’s spate of suspicious deaths, Raven and Sarah find themselves propelled headlong into the darkest shadows of Edinburgh’s underworld, where they will have to overcome their differences if they are to make it out alive."

Ambrose Parry is a pseudonym for a collaboration between Chris Brookmyre and Marisa Haetzman. Chris Brookmyre is the international bestselling and multi-award-winning author of over twenty novels, including the Jack Parlabane series and  Dr Marisa Haetzman is a consultant anaesthetist of twenty years’ experience, whose research for her Master’s degree in the History of Medicine uncovered the material upon which this novel was based. The couple are married and live in Scotland.
