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

IT'S A BRAVE NEW WORLD

ALL FETUSES ARE PARASITES
This is probably my favorite book by Gerritsen, which is saying a lot, since I like most of what she writes. The technology is dated but the moral issues and the if and how we handle body tissues is a hot topic today.
HOW DO I FIGHT BACK WHEN I'M BEING ATTACKED ON ALL SIDES
Just like in Harvest, Tess digs a hole so deep for her main character, a female physician, you are at odds in how she will get out. Her main character is a no holds barred do what is right type of person, come hell or high water. With Gerritsen you never have to worry about being bored. Each chapter has something of significant happen. Tess does not use fillers.
MAD COW DISEASE
Guidall is one of the best, if not the best in his craft.

- Jim "The Impatient" "My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books."

Very Engaging!!

Tess Gerritsen is a great mystery writer. I have read her work in the past and this is the first audible book of hers that I have bought. The narrator is good and the character development is great. If you are looking for something that will entertain you and allow long drives to fly by, this is for you.
