Never read this author until recently. Enjoyed one of the Rizzoli and Isles books and then found this medical thriller. The characters are well built and the plot kept me guessing until the end. Can’t wait to read her next one.
In this classic medical thriller filled with harrowing suspense and brilliantly crafted plot twists, Tess Gerritsen—the author of the acclaimed Rizzoli & Isles series that inspired the hit television show—delivers a pulse-pounding tale that “will make your heart skip a beat” (USA TODAY).
For Dr. Abby DiMatteo, the long road to Boston’s Bayside Hospital has been anything but easy. Now, immersed in the grinding fatigue of her second year as a surgical resident, she’s elated when the hospital’s elite cardiac transplant team taps her as a potential recruit.
But Abby soon makes an anguished, crucial decision that jeopardizes her entire career. A car crash victim’s healthy heart is ready to be harvested; it is immediately cross-matched to a wealthy private patient, Nina Voss. Abby hatches a bold plan to make sure that the transplant goes instead to a dying seventeen-year-old boy who is also a perfect match.
The repercussions are powerful and swift and Abby is shaken but unrepentant—until she meets the frail, tormented Nina. Then a new heart for Nina Voss suddenly appears, her transplant is completed, and Abby makes a terrible discovery: Nina’s heart has not come through the proper channels.
Defying Bayside Hospital’s demands for silence, Abby plunges into an investigation that reveals an intricate, and murderous, chain of deceptions. Every move Abby makes spawns a vicious backlash and, in a ship anchored in the stagnant waters of Boston Harbor, a final, grisly discovery lies waiting…
I was exactly there on the edge of my seat. I read the whole book in 2 days. My new fav author read the next book in 1 day lol! I sort of predicted what would happen, but even though i was right there were still surprising twists and turns all thru the read awesome book!!!
A great suspenseful read.
Definitely worth the buy. Never read any of her books before or watched Rizzoli&Isles, came upon it randomly and was in the mood for a good medical thriller. Excellent plot and characters, couldn't put it down. Just finished and I'm going to buy Life Support, another medical thriller by her, based on how excellent Harvest was. Absolutely recommend!
I had read a number or the authors later works and decided to read this, her first published book. It was excellent. Highly recommend.
Interresting, haunting and a twist at the end, not entirely predictable. Enjoyed it!
I was pleasantly surprise, this was a very good book. Tess Gerristen, is officially added to my list of favorite authors. I am definitely going to buy all of her other books.
Totally gripping, I could not put this book down. I've had people thank me for recommending this title to them. Tess keep them coming.
