Former romance author and medical doctor Tess Gerritsen is writing in a new genre: medical suspense. Advertised as her "first novel," Harvest jumped onto the New York Times bestseller list and thus legions of new fans were introduced to the work of this talented author. Gerritsen's second thriller, Life Support, is as moving as any of her romances. Dr. Toby Harper works the night shift in an emergency room. More comfortable with the steady horror and tedium of emergency care than with a normal lifestyle, Toby alienates herself socially from her peers and from her sister. She spends her daytime hours alone with her mother who suffers from Alzheimer's disease. When elderly Alzheimer's patients from the same retirement home start dying mysteriously, Toby is the only one suspicious enough to investigate. As a result she finds herself, her mother, and her own sanity at risk. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Another medical thriller from Gerritsen, who one-upped Robin Cook with her best-selling first novel, Harvest.

Tess Gerritsen is a GREAT story teller. My only hesitation with her medical thrillers is that she has a fantastic skill in developing paranoia ... and I get paranoid! Read morePublished 21 days ago by Tom Anderson

As a MD, Gerritsen writes medically correct and great detail in her mysteries. They do tend to be a tad gory for non-medical folks, but I love all her writings!Published 1 month ago by Carolyn R.
