Operation Wormwood An elderly man is carried into the emergency department of the Health Sciences Centre in St. John’s, the first of many victims suffering from symptoms that leave doctors mystified. Dr. Luke Gillespie and Nurse Agatha Catania investigate their symptoms but are unable to diagnose them. Dr. Gillespie and Sgt. Nicholas Myra, an investigator with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, join forces to solve this twisted mystery. But the story takes a critical turn when Sister Pius, a nun from Mercy Convent, informs them about Wormwood: a disease she believes is created by God to kill perpetrators of the most heinous crimes. Is God truly punishing these criminals or is a serial killer targeting them? Helen C. Escott is the author of the widely read humour blog-turned-book: I am Funny Like That. In her first crime novel, Operation Wormwood, she taps into her darker side and takes readers on a thrill ride through the historic city of St. John’s.
