A woman gets a call in the middle of the night that her husband has been killed. Little does she know what her curiosity gets her into when she does not believe her husband is actually dead. Very well done and intriguing book!!
This was a good story overall. A lot of times, I was amazed at how well the author can blend her thrillers in with a romance and stitch it all together for a great read. The espionage story-line was done really well.
Good book! Loved the twists and turns in the story. Its amazing how strong you can be if you have to. The characters were smart, strong, and sexy.
Sarah refuses to believe that her husband of 2 months has died in a fire in Berlin. With the reluctant help of Nick O'Hara from the US State Dept., she searches Europe for the truth. They soon find death stalking their steps.
It was Ok but I like her later books better.
I enjoyed this one. Fast moving and mysterious.
Tess Gerritsen is one of the best female mystery writers. Good easy read. Exciting story lines.
didn't enjoy as much as "Rizzoli" books

Didn't read once I discovered it was a very early romance by Gerritsen and not my thing at all--I go for hardboiled!
A ringing phone in the middle of the night shakes newlywed Sarah Fontaine awake. Expecting her husband's call from London she hears instead an unfamiliar voice. Nick O'Hara from the U.S. State Department is calling with devastating news: Geoffrey Fontaine, Sarah's husband of two months, died in a hotel fire...in Berlin.
Convinced her husband is still alive, Sarah forces a confrontation with Nick that finds them crisscrossing Europe on a desperate search for Geoffrey.

registered on bookcrossing as well. One of my favorite authors earlier novels, very short and not as medical thriller as she's gone on to do. Overall I enjoyed it.
