More About the Author

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. But her interests span far more than medical topics. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena. She started off her writing career with romance novels, now published by Mira. But in 1996 she switched to writing thrillers with her novel HARVEST, inspired by the anger she felt about the illegal trade in human organs. It was her first New York Times bestseller. Since then she has become an internationally bestselling author of crime novels, and her thriller series starring Boston detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles is the basis for the hit television series "Rizzoli & isles." She lives with her husband in Maine. For more information on Tess Gerritsen and her novels, visit her website: www.tessgerritsen.co.uk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Suspense Novel 23 Mar 2007
By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
First let me say that I have never read any of the Tess Gerritsen's books before. They are not, or so I thought my type of reading material, but when you are caught near the end of your holiday, having read all the books you brought with you and you are an avid reader, any port in storm, so they say, or at least a raid on my wife's suitcase, for some of her holiday reading material.

Enough waffling, I really enjoyed the book. Tess Gerritsen is a very accomplished writer and also has the imagination to come up with the most audacious plot and also to delve into the minds of extremely disturbed people. I certainly hope that I do not have to go to hospital any time soon.

To give too much away about a suspense novel is counter productive. Suffice to say the plot revolves around a heart transplant and the repercussions that evolve because of it.

I have always said that life is too short to read rubbish, but this book was far from that. So I guess the moral is, give a book with a new subject a try. You never know if the writer is as good as Tess Gerritsen you may even like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart breaking 4 Jun 2007
By OEJ TOP 100 REVIEWER TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Having read the six novels in Tess' `Rizzoli/Isles" series I thought I'd have a go at her earlier work, and Harvest from 1996. Another reviewer here suggests that this is her first book, but in fact it's her 12th - most of the first eleven were romantic fiction which she started writing in 1986. Anyway I was pleased to discover that Harvest is every bit as good as her more recent work, if anything it could quite easily be her latest novel and no-one would notice. I have a feeling that the experiences of central character Dr Abby DiMatteo are strongly adapted from the author's own in her previous career as a physician in Hawaii. It was a chance dinner conversation that inspired Tess to write this, her first medical thriller. The man sitting beside her at the restaurant was an ex-cop who ran a security service protecting American businessmen in Russia. On his last trip abroad, Moscow cops had told him that Russian orphans were vanishing from the streets. They believed the children were being kidnapped by the Russian mafia and shipped abroad as organ donors.

The story so horrified Tess, she immediately called her brother-in-law, a reporter for Newsweek, suggesting he investigate. Newsweek was unable to track down any proof. Weeks later, Tess was still unable to forget those missing Russian orphans. They became the inspiration for the plot of Harvest which was released in hardcover in 1996, and marked Tess's debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Film rights were sold to Paramount/Dreamworks, and the book has been translated into twenty foreign languages.

If you have enjoyed The Surgeon, and the others in that series, I'm sure you'll like Harvest too. It's unlikely to disappoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book 9 Aug 2006
By Hugh Sutherland VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I have really become a huge fan of Ms Gerritsen. Aside from her detailed scientific information, her books are always well written and planned out.

Harvest is very readable to say the least. She establishes her characters well and creates a increasingly steady atmosphere throughout the book.

This book was her first medical thriller and the writing may not be as developed as her more recent efforts but it is still a fantastic read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Medical Thriller 6 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
If you have enjoyed other books by Tess Gerritsen, such as 'The Surgeon', 'Vanish' and 'Body Double' then you will love this too.
The lead character Abby DiMattio is a second year medical resident and gets caught up in a deadly illegal heart harvesting ring at
Boston Bayside Hospital. There are many twists and turns and several loveable characters, including Yakov, a young Russian boy.
I would highly recommend this book and found it an exciting read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Haven't I read this plot somewhere before? 7 Feb 2004
Format:Hardcover
This novel is well written, but pretty much a copy of "Coma" by Robin Cook. The medical detail is convincing (as you would expect from a writer who has been a doctor) but the plot is much less believable (as are the stereotypical Russian baddies). An entertaining read, but not one her best novels.
