About Christopher Brookmyre with Dr Marisa Haetzman

'The Way of All Flesh', the first historical crime novel by Chris Brookmyre, winner of the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award and the McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime Novel of the Year, in a collaboration with Marisa Haetzman, a medical historian and consultant anaesthetist.

Young women are being discovered dead across the Old Town, all having suffered similarly gruesome ends. In the New Town, medical student Will Raven is about to start his apprenticeship with the brilliant and renowned Dr Simpson. Set in Edinburgh in 1847 using research from Marisa Haetzman's Master's in the History of Medicine, The Way of All Fleshcontains real life characters and events, including Dr James Simpson, the invention of anaesthesia and its early use in obstetric procedures, the influence of the newly established Free Church of Scotland and the work of photography pioneers David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Christopher Brookmyre with Dr Marisa Haetzman are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
