Hell and High Water (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


A gripping medical thriller by an emergency physician and former "War Doctor"

With 85% per cent burns to his body and a 115% risk of dying, it's a miracle the patient is still alive.

That he made it this far is thanks to Tekla Berg, an emergency physician whose unorthodox methods are often the difference between life and death.

Convinced that the fire was a terrorist attack - and that he was involved - the police are desperate to question him. Almost as desperate as those who would silence him at any cost. While she battles to keep him breathing, Tekla cannot shake the thought that there is something eerily familiar about him, something that evokes her most private memories.

Already struggling with hospital politics, an amphetamine addiction, and the disappearance of her beloved but prodigal brother, the last thing she needs is to be drawn into a mystery involving corrupt police, a violent biker gang and elements of the Uzbek mafia.
