Relatively plausible medical thriller, takes place in a small New England town. As good as a Stephen King story.

Fantastic thriller!!! I thought it was very suspenseful and it grabs you from the first page. Gerritsen is getting to be quite known for her medical thrillers and this just proves how great she is. A small town is suddenly stunned by the outbreak of rage among thier teenage children. A doctor who is new to the area and not exactly trusted thinks it is something in their blood. When one of her patients goes on a murder spree she find herself being blamed for the incident. The more she tries to figure out the problem the more the people of the town seem to go against her. When her own son starts showing problems with rage she knows she has to find out the source of the problem or lose the one thing she treasures the most.

The story itself kept me on the edge of my seat and I just couldn't wait to read more. What bugged me about this book is what was in the "bloodstream" of the kids. It was more then a little unbelievable to me. I won't give anything away though because this book really is a good thriller and won't disappoint.

Every Tess Gerritsen I read keeps me glued to the pages until I'm finished and this was no exception! This author knows how to grab you on page one and keeps the tension and surprises and twists and turns coming.

Gerritsen reminds me of a female Stephen King and she happens to be one of my very favorite female authors. This book is no exception to her fantastic style of putting together a medical mystery that you just don't want to put down. Love Her!!
