John Saul Grabs you and holds you from page one....Be prepared to drop all your obligations until you finish.

People Richly drawn hospital scenes....Chilling science...and breathless ER-style pacing....A quick, delightfully scary read.

Publishers Weekly [A] spine-tingling medical chiller....The pieces in this adeptly crafted Rubik's cube don't click into place until the final page.

Internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen took an unusual route to a writing career. A graduate of Stanford University, Tess went on to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she was awarded her M.D.

While on maternity leave from her work as a physician, she began to write fiction. In 1987, her first novel was published. Call After Midnight, a romantic thriller, was followed by eight more romantic suspense novels. She also wrote a screenplay, &quot;Adrift&quot;, which aired as a 1993 CBS Movie of the Week starring Kate Jackson.

Tess's first medical thriller, Harvest, was released in hardcover in 1996, and it marked her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Her suspense novels since then have been: Life Support (1997), Bloodstream (1998), Gravity (1999), The Surgeon (2001), The Apprentice (2002), The Sinner (2003), Body Double (2004), Vanish (2005), The Mephisto Club (2006), The Bone Garden (2007), The Keepsake (2008; UK title: Keeping the Dead), Ice Cold (2010; UK title: The Killing Place), The Silent Girl (2011), Last To Die (2012), Die Again (2014), Playing With Fire (2015), and I Know A Secret (2017). Her books have been published in forty countries, and more than 30 million copies have been sold around the world.

Her books have been top-3 bestsellers in the United States and number one bestsellers abroad. She has won both the Nero Wolfe Award (for Vanish) and the Rita Award (for The Surgeon). Critics around the world have praised her novels as &quot;Pulse-pounding fun&quot; (Philadelphia Inquirer), &quot;Scary and brilliant&quot; (Toronto Globe and Mail), and &quot;Polished, riveting prose&quot; (Chicago Tribune). Publisher Weekly has dubbed her the &quot;medical suspense queen&quot;.

Her series of novels featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the TNT television series &quot;Rizzoli &amp; Isles&quot; starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander.

Now retired from medicine, she writes full time. She lives in Maine.

4.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing, fast paced, medical thriller that is shockingly creepy in places, so perhaps not one for the squeamish.
