Un-put-downable! Just enough medical jargon to make you feel like an insider. Enough suspense to make you want to read "just one more page."

Yep. Tess Gerritsen completely freaks you out with this book -- we've all heard about how money can buy you anything, and in this book, Tess Gerritsen stays with the medical theme, and uses her experience as a doctor to discuss the dark side of organ donation. Guaranteed to creep you out.

A young man in desperate need of a heart transplant gets one over the strenuous objections of a man who wants it for his desperately ill wife. And funny thing, she gets one after all. Where did it come from? First-rate mystery.

This book is great, in a squeamish "it could actually happen to you" kind of sense. The prospect of being kidnapped and having my organs sold totally spooks me, this book was a thrilling page-turner the three times I've read it :)

Wow! This book has all of the things I look for in a medical mystery book; detailed medical procedures, suspense, intrigue and most of all - - gut-wrenching drama! Patterson said it best: "The best medical thriller I've read since coma."

Medical thriller, medical suspense

FROM THE COVER: "Boston's Bayside Hospital is a long way from Dr. Abby DiMatteo's humble roots, and she's elated when their elite cardiac transplant team taps her as a potential recruit. But an anguished, life-and-death decision soon jeopardizes her entire career. She and chief resident Vivian Chao boldly direct a crash victim's harvested heart to a dying seventeen-year-old boy--- instead of the wealthy forty-six-year-old woman to whom the hospital has cross-matched it. The repercussions cost Dr. Chao her job, and leave Abby shaken

Then a new heart suddenly appears, the woman's transplant is completed, and Abby makes a terrible discovery. The donor records have been falsified-- the new heart has not come through the proper channels. Defying Bayside Hospital's demands for silence, Abby and Vivian plunge into an investigation that reveals a lethal, unthinkable conspiracy. Every move Abby makes spawns a vicious backlash--- and on a ship anchored in the waters of Boston Harbor, a final, grisly discovery lies waiting."

I have read and enjoyed all of her other books. I couldn't get into this one, and finally just put it away. A real disappointment.

The paperback front cover is torn a little at the top and the bottom right corner of the cover is missing. Until I found PaperBack Swap, I shopped at lots of second hand stores. It is still very readable. And certainly worth reading. I love Tess Gerritsen's fast pace in her books. LOVE the characters. The T.V. Show Rizzoli and Isles is based on her book characters.

This is one of my favorite authors, and one of her better novels, I think. It all seems pretty outrageous but believable...
