Review

"'It's scary just how good Tess Gerritsen is.' Harlan Coben 'Gerritsen has enough in the locker to seriously worry Michael Connelly, Harlan Coben and even the great Denis Lehane.' Crimetime 'Tess Gerritsen writes some of the smartest, most compelling thrillers around.' Bookreporter"

Product Description

Twenty years after her father's plane crashed in the jungles of Southeast Asia, Willy Jane Maitland was finally tracking his last moves.

She recognised the dangers, but her search for the truth about that fateful flight was the only thing that mattered. Closing in on the events of that night, Willy realises that she is investigating secrets that people would kill to protect. And without knowing who to trust, the truth can be far from clear cut. . .

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Never Say Die 20 July 2006
Format:Paperback
Usually I love Tess Gerritsen, I have most of her books which I have rated 5 stars. However, this one seems almost as if it is written by a different person, the plot is ok but some of the script she uses is so overused it's like listening to a manufactured pop song. Maybe this one was written a while ago and the publishes decided to cash in on her recent success, I don't know but I'm hoping her next book is better than this. It's not terrible, don't let me put you off, but it's certainly not her best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as her current writing 31 May 2007
Format:Paperback
An early work by Tess Gerritsen, well before she got into her stride. It's not a bad story, set primarily in Vietnam, about a woman looking for the body - alive or dead - of her Air America pilot father, missing for twenty years. It's competently written, but the book doesn't have the raw appeal of her later work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Never Say Die 5 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
I was so disappointed with this book. Tess Gerritsen means to me, a book that once started will have you gripped to the bitter end. Not on this occasion. I have tried to read this book on about 4 separate occasions and have yet to finish it. There is nothing in the story line to keep me gripped and is nothing more than hard work to concentrate on.

So glad that this was the last book of hers that I had to read. I this was the first, it would have stopped me from trying the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Say Die 26 May 2011
Format:Paperback
Another explosive novel from Tess Gerritsen. Oozing with suspense it makes the reader desperate to read further. Another Tess Gerritsen marvel. I would highly recommend this crime novel to anyone who enjoys the excitement of the chase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad 5 Sep 2007
By J.Flood
Format:Paperback
Bill Maitland's plane appeared to have been shot down over Laos, during the Vietnam war, and he was never seen again. The plane was carrying a special cargo. Over twenty years, his daughter, Willy, has gone to South East Asia, to try and locate her father. The local authorities are unhelpful, and worse, someone is trying to frighten her off.

The pace of the novel is quite good. Although, the dialogue between the two main characters, Willy and Guy, can be a bit cliched and annoying, at times, but,I felt, there was enough action, throughout the novel, to keep me interested.

3.0 out of 5 stars I can't decide 26 Mar 2007
By molko VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I liked teh story, I found the setting interesting and so on, but I just hated the characters! Willy, the main character, was bearable but Guy! He was maybe one of the most annoying characters i've evr encountered while reading! He spoke like he was stuck in 1930's London as did Willy.

If you think you can put up with the constant 'Oh gollys' then buy the book, but if like me you're likely to become annoyed with it then steer clear of this 1 and go for another of Gerritsens books like 'The surgeon'. It's a shame to becuase the story actually isnt that bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! 29 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback
I was expecting it to be different to Gerritsens newer work because of the previous reviews - and it was - it wasn't as polished as her most recent books but it still had me on the edge of my seat all the way through!

5.0 out of 5 stars MS. GERRITSEN - A GOOD CHANGE OF DIRECTION 23 Jun 2004
Format:Paperback
MS. GERRITSEN PAINTS A VERY BLEAK PICTURE OF WHAT LIFE MUST BE LIKE FOR THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE AND THE WAY THEY LIVE.
THIS MAKES IT EVEN MORE DIFFICULT FOR "WILLY" TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FATHER. OBSTICLES ARE PUT IN HER WAY, TO PREVENT HER LOCATING HER FATHER, WHETHER HE IS DEAD OR ALIVE - SHE IS LEAD TO BELIEVE THAT HE IS IN FACT ALIVE. SHE REFUSES TO BELIEVE THE LIES SURROUNDING HER FATHER.
SHE IS FORCED TO WORK WITH "GUY BARNARD",EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A SIMMERING ATTRACTION BETWEEN THE TWO, SHE DOESN'T TRUST HIM IN ANY WAY. AS THEY PROCEED THROUGH VIETNAM/THAILAND AND INTO SAIGON, THEY ENCOUNTER LIES, MISTRUST,POLITICAL INTRIGUE AND MURDER. IT SEEMS THAT NO-ONE IS WILLING TO HELP "WILLY" AND THOSE THAT DO, PAY ULTIMATELY WITH THEIR LIVES.
THIS IS A FIRST FOR MS.GERRITSEN, YOU WOULD NORMALLY ASSOCIATE HER WORK WITH MEDICAL THRILLERS NOT POLITICAL ESPIONAGE, BUT THIS IS A VERY GOOD BOOK, WHICH PROVES SHE IS ADAPT AT ALMOST ANYTHING SHE PUTS HER MIND TO.
THE PLOT AND CHARACTORS ARE WELL LAID OUT, "WILLY" IS SUCH A STRONG CHARACTOR, BUT UNDERNEATH ALL THAT BRAVADO, IS A WOMEN JUST TRYING TO FIND HER DAD. SHE HATES HAVING TO RELY ON OTHERS ESPECIALLY "GUY" WHO SHE KNOWS HAS AN ULTERIOR MOTIVE - WHETHER IT BE TO LOOK AFTER HIMSELF OR TO GET HER INTO BED.
THERE ARE QUITE A FEW CHARACTORS IN THIS BOOK, THEY ARE EASY TO GET TO KNOW AND YOU NEVER REALLY GUESS WHO THE "BADDIE" IS, I DIDN'T ANYWAY.
THIS IS NOT HEAVY WITH THE POLITICAL INTRIGUE, IT LEANS MORE TO A ROMANTIC THRILLER IF ANYTHING BUT, AGAIN IT IS NOT HEAVILY LADEN WITH IT.
I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK AND WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
EXCELLENT READING

One of Tess' earlier ones, I think. Although it doesn't have her usual 'can't put-downability' I found this a really good book to read, with a few twists and turns along the way.
