Overview
-

Meet Chris O'Brien, private investigator; he’s not your run-of-the-mill private eye. Instead he’s an ex-psychiatric nurse trained in Chinese medicine, a martial arts expert with a Philosophy degree and a mean way with a kitchen cleaver. O.B. and his sidekick, the enthusiastic West Indian, Kelp take on the case of a local club manager, who has reason to believe that drugs are being dealt in his club. The stakes are raised when a dead body turns up outside the club and the police swoop in. Within days, arson and a near fatal attack land Kelp in hospital with broken bones and a maliciously induced heroin overdose. Driven by a mixture of guilt and fury, O.B. takes off on the trail of a suspect with the assistance of Kelp’s sister Debra, who is out to avenge her brother's attempted murder. In the face of daunting opposition, they track their enemies to a thrilling, violent and dirty confrontation that will require all their skill and cunning just to survive. That Which Doesn't Kill You is an action-packed, witty and sharply observed debut that marks the first appearance of the wisecracking, kung fu PI, Chris O'Brien.
