About the Author

Jed Mercurio trained at the University of Birmingham Medical School and practised as a junior doctor before becoming a full-time writer in 1994. As a writer, producer and director his TV credits include the highly successful shows Cardiac Arrest, Bodies, Line of Duty and Bodyguard, as well as adaptions of Frankenstein and Lady Chatterley's Lover. He has been described by the Telegraph as 'the most successful writer working in television today' and by the Independent as 'the master of British Drama'.

Mercurio is the author of three novels. His first novel, Bodies, was chosen as one of the five best debuts of 2002 by the Guardian. In 2007 Mercurio published his second novel, Ascent, the story of a fictional Soviet fighter pilot and cosmonaut set against the background of the Korean War and the Space Race. Ascent was included in the Guardian's list of '1000 Novels Everyone Must Read' and a graphic novelization, illustrated by Wesley Robins, was published in 2011. Mercurio's most recent novel, Amercian Adulterer, a fictionalization of President John F. Kennedy's infidelities, was published in 2009.
