AR-SP02 Author Kurt Avard on his book “First, Do No Harm”

September 23, 2020

An interview with author Kurt Avard, about his new novel First, Do No Harm.

In 17th Century Vienna, a local watchman discovers a dead body outside of Stephansdom Cathedral.  He soon realizes that the black plague is sweeping across the city.  He must determine: Is there a medical cure that will stop this illness from devastating the population? or is the plague the result of other-worldly beings bringing God’s wrath to a sinful people?
Author Kurt Avard takes readers on a journey through a society still emerging from medieval Europe to embrace enlightenment.  The struggle between religion and science breaks into open warfare as a determined group searches for a way to end this terrible suffering.  
First, Do No Harm releases on September 25, 2020.  Pre-order your book on Amazon today.
