The End of Men, Christina Baird-Sweeney ( hardback, April 2021)
Dr Amanda Maclean is called to treat a young man with a mild fever. Within three hours he dies. The mysterious illness sweeps through the hospital with deadly speed.
This is how it begins. The victims are all men. Dr Maclean raises the alarm, but the sickness spreads to every corner of the globe.
Threatening families. Governments. Countries.
Can they find a cure before it's too late? Will this be the story of the end of the world - or its salvation? Compelling, confronting and devastating.
Linda - I enjoyed this way more than I expected to, it's very readable and ultimately positive about the resilience of humankind. Would be a great bookclub read to discuss.
