Bloody Scotland: Ambrose Parry
Ambrose who? Worry not. The newest kid on the block is, in fact, born of crime writing royalty. Parry is the pseudonym of Chris Brookmyre and his wife Dr Marisa Haetzman, a consultant anaesthetist. They have combined their considerable talents to produce The Way of All Flesh, a riveting tale of medicine and murder on the streets of 1840s Edinburgh. Join Chris and Marisa as they introduce us to Will Raven and Sarah Fisher who have to weave their way through the darkest shadows of the city’s underworld against the background of gruesome deaths and their links to the new frontier of anaesthesia.
Chris and Marisa will be interviewed by E.S. Thomson whose own gothic mysteries based around medicine include Beloved Poison and The Blood.
