I was recently reading a story on NYPost.com called “How airport doctors get drugs out of smugglers’ stomachs.” It was fascinating, and it featured Dr. Stephanie Green, whose fascinating new book is titled “Flight Risk: The Highs and Lows of Life as a Doctor at Heathrow Airport.”
Dr. Green was a doctor at Heathrow Airport in London, England, for ten years working in arrivals, and says she had to deal with the realities of drug smuggling on a weekly basis. In the book she reveals how the authorities often wait weeks on end for smugglers to pass the drugs they have swallowed, normally inside a condom. The book is described as “an exhilarating insight into the life of a doctor at Heathrow Airport, where the truth is often stranger than fiction.” Green details the ups, downs and upside-downs of her 24-hour shifts at Heathrow, where she was confronted by dramatic, bizarre and sometimes heart-breaking situations.
Grab it: Grab “Flight Risk: The Highs and Lows of Life as a Doctor at Heathrow Airport” by Dr. Stephanie Green on Amazon for $14.13.
