I can declare that this novel is fabulously readable with a darkly comic twist that perfectly counters the tragedy contained within. Over-worked and underpaid, one young doctor attempts to solve the mystery of unexplained deaths occurring on his ward. Our doctor spills his thoughts onto the page, he’s honest, even about his addiction to opioids. And then we have the additional information that slices into the story, sporadically and clearly informing us of the historical cases of healthcare workers deliberately harming patients. It initially jars, but serves to remind you just how much we rely on our doctors, it also kept me wondering where the information was coming from. Author Simon Stephenson originally trained as a doctor and now works as a screenwriter. His ability to paint a vivid picture with words left me at times wanting to close my eyes to the horrors faced by medical staff. Yet, he has that dark humour beloved (and needed) by emergency workers all over the world, and it sits perfectly against the murder and mayhem. I gave myself a pat on the back for deciding who the killer was and yet the journey was totally unexpected, hence my choosing Sometimes People Die as a Liz Pick of the Month. If you enjoy a dry, whip-smart delivery along with the darkest of plots, then I wholeheartedly recommend this book to you.
