'Hard to put down' Rachel Clarke

'Gripping, humane, eye-opening and seriously tense' Ian Dunt

The first book to tell the full story of the COVID-19 pandemic from a doctor on the frontline.

ALL ROYALTIES FROM SALES GO TO HEROES, A CHARITY PROTECTING AND SUPPORTING HEALTHCARE WORKERS.

On the 8th of February, Dr Dominic Pimenta encountered his first suspected case of coronavirus. Within a week, he began wearing a mask on the tube, and within a month, he moved over to the Intensive Care Unit to help fight the virus.

From the initial whispers coming out of China and the collective hesitation to class this as a pandemic to full lockdown and the continued battle to treat whoever came through the doors, Dr Pimenta tells the heroic stories of how the entire system shifted to tackle this outbreak and how, ultimately, the staff managed to save lives.

This incredible account captures the shock and surprise, the panic and power of an unprecedented time, and how, at this moment of despair, human generosity and kindness prevailed.

'A startlingly personal account ... It can be described as a memoir, a thriller or a horror story, but it is really all at once' Observer

'Reads like a thriller - a first-hand account of a group of individuals facing a terrible adversary - but it also moved me sometimes to tears because it communicates the humanity of the patients, as well as the NHS staff. As with all great writing, its honesty shines out' Tim Walker

'An excellent book ... Moving and fascinating in equal measure' Xand van Tulleken
