Two brutal murders. Two young people determined to arrive at the truth. One thriving city, teeming with life, innovation, deceit, and death. Readers have been entranced by Chris Brookmyre’s absorbing crime novels for years, and now, in collaboration with medical historian Dr Marisa Haetzman, a dazzling new series has been born. The Way of All Flesh explores one of the most fascinating elements of Edinburgh’s history – its place at the centre of medical enlightenment. Inspired by historical events and the revolutionary advances – both medical and social – of Dr James Young Simpson, Chris Brookmyre and Marisa Haetzman have crafted a superbly atmospheric chronicle of the people at the forefront of scientific development.
Ambrose Parry is a pseudonym for a collaboration between Chris Brookmyre and Dr Marisa Haetzman. The couple are married, live in Scotland and together write historical crime series.
