A fantastic book following Tess Gerritsens book "The Surgeon". It was a gripping story! Keeps the reader turning pages until the end. As with most of her books, I am somewhat disappointed when the book is over because I enjoy the story so much. I recommend reading The Surgeon before this book to give you more insight on The Apprentice. Tess Gerritsen books have become a "must read" for me. Enjoy!
