Publisher's Summary

In Harvest, the book that introduced us to Tess Gerritsen's unique blend of medical expertise, harrowing suspense, and brilliantly crafted plot twists, the dark side of medical research is exposed. Harvest vividly portrays a young woman doctor challenging a world where medical miracles and greed fuel a lethal conspiracy - and the bright lights of the O.R. conceal the ultimate corruption of genius.

TRUST ME

I HATE WHEN PEOPLE TELL ME THAT
Gerritsen has soul and she pours a little of it in each of her books. This was her debut novel of a career that has skyrocketed. I believe it was also the first book of hers I ever listened too and the one that got me hooked on her writings. Written in 1996, I was glad that Audible made it possible for me to go back and listen to it again. I found I enjoyed it even more the second time around.

A LITTLE BLASPHEMY IS A HEATHY THING
Most of Gerritsen's writings are not as scary as King or as crazy as Koontz, but they are on the edge. They seem unbelievable, but than again, just maybe? Like King and Koontz, she is sees, hears and feels and she knows how to write, so you do to. Gerritsen always entertains, you will not be bored.

Guidall is about as high caliber narrator that you can get.

When things aren't as they seem...

STORY (medical thriller) - Abbe is a young surgical intern with a bright future and a great guy. Everything is going perfectly until she starts to wonder about certain things going on in the operating room. The publisher's summary doesn't give much away, so I won't either. I'll just say that some of this book takes place on an ocean-going vessel, but most of it takes place in and around a Chicago hospital. Abbe has stumbled onto something that's as dangerous as it is suspicious. As she struggles to learn what's going on in the OR, she is pressured by those who want to keep things secret. Her career and her very life are at stake.

There's interesting medical situations and lots of suspense in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

PERFORMANCE - George Guidall does a very good job reading this book.

OVERALL (Actual rating 4.5) - Moderate violence and some cursing. Recommended for mature listeners(male or female) due to the subject matter.

Not for the faint-hearted!

I first came across this author with her enjoyable Rizzoli and Maura series, which combine detective fiction with a medical slant. Harvest is a bit different in that it has a heavy dose of medical detail with graphic accounts of heart surgery, so if you're squeamish about blood and guts: be warned! A detective does come into the story in the later part of the book. It's an alarming and intriguing story about the subversion of a heart transplant team. The narrative centres on a young woman medical intern who joins the transplant team as a trainee and thereafter her nightmare begins. The story is full of surprises and, though not her best book, is certainly one that kept me listening.
The reader is excellent.

Keeps you guessing!

This is a great listen from Tess Gerritsen! The characters are well drawn and the plot will have you on the edge of your seat. Beware if you listen and drive! The plot contains some thought provoking themes regarding organ transplants and donations too. It is read clearly and thoughtfully and you are completely drawn into the story and the characters' lives.

Something of a Build-up

It took me quite a few chapters to really get in to this storyline. It was confusing to start with but as the story built I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the narration. It's a unique way to absorb a book as opposed to reading one, and I am enjoying the experience. The narration was great. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another book narrated by George Guidall.
