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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

By Cloggie Downunder TOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 Jun. 2012
Format: Paperback
Never Say Die is the 6th stand-alone novel by popular author, Tess Gerritsen. Physical anthropologist, Guy Barnard works for the US Army ID Lab, identifying remains of MIA US soldiers. On his way to Saigon to do just that, he is blackmailed into looking for a US pilot turned traitor who flew for the VC, known as "Friar Tuck". Willy Jane Maitland has come to Asia to try to find her father, Wild Bill Maitland, MIA in 1970, but whom she and her mother believe is still alive. Wild Bill is also believed by some to be the notorious Friar Tuck. Coincidentally (??), Guy and Willy encounter each other in Bangkok, where Guy is drawn to Willy not only because she can help him find Wild Bill, but also because he is really very attracted to her. As Guy and Willy try to track Bill down, they are shadowed at every turn: the CIA? The Vietnamese Government? Someone acting for Bill? There are many throats slit and Willy finds herself wondering if there is anyone she can trust, but eventually, help comes from and unexpected quarter. This Gerritsen offering has plenty of action, drama, romance and a bit of sex. The heat and humidity of South East Asia is palpable and the dialogue is credible. It has an interesting plot with a few twists. Excellent early Gerritsen.

Format: Paperback
It's border line between 'ok' and 'didn't like it'. I opted for 'ok' based on the fact it was easy to read and essentially the plot was of Jack Higgins standard.

Basically Willy has a very famous father, a pilot carrying something that needed to be kept secret. The plane is bombed, he and the cargo is presumed dead and 20 years later Willy is convinced he isn't and goes searching for him. She meets Guy, who is responsible for getting dead soliders identified. Very predictably they fall in love. What a surprise!

The whole story is around them finding out the truth. Lots of death and gore on the way. If this is the first Gerritsen book you've read then you are in for a treat as they get better, much better. If you've read her before and looking for a change of direction then still try it. It is 'ok'. Easy Sunday afternoon reading, comfortably sat on the sofa with a few cups of coffee!
