Product Description


'Gerritsen is tops in her genre.' --USA Today

'Tess Gerritsen writes some of the smartest, most compelling thrillers around.' --Bookreporter

'Gerritsen has enough in the locker to seriously worry Michael Connelly, Harlan Coben and even the great Denis Lehane. Brilliant.' --Crimetime

Product Description

When the bullets finally ceased, the bodies lay in a coiled embrace on the lifeboat.

The sinking of a cargo ship and the slaughter of its crew seemed a senseless act of violence. But Clea Rice knows the truth and is determined to expose the culprits. When Jordan Tavistock is asked to steal the indiscreet letters of a friend, he reluctantly obliges, only to be caught red-handed by another burglar. The burglar is Clea, who is looking for something else entirely.

As Jordan finds himself caught up in a web of mystery and intrigue, he wonders how he can trust Clea when she will not tell him who she is working for, or even what her real name is. Only together, can they find the answers to the sinister questions surrounding the sinking of the ship. Answers that some are prepared to kill for to keep buried.

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:

1.0 out of 5 stars A big disappointment 27 April 2007
I have most of Tess Gerritsen's later books and especially enjoy the stories about Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles. I was so looking forward to what I thought was her latest book, but find instead it is a 10 year old romance originally called "Thief of Hearts" by Harlequin but re-titled "Stolen". What a disappointment, a quite ordinary romantic novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars A note from Tess Gerritsen's UK editor 23 Jun 2007
Having read the reviews of Stolen, I wanted - as the publisher of Tess's more recent thrillers as Transworld - to say that STOLEN (previously published as THIEF OF HEARTS), IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS, UNDER THE KNIFE, CALL AFTER MIDNIGHT (gathered together in the anthology Murder & Mayhem), NEVER SAY DIE and WHISTLEBLOWER are not thrillers, but reissues of romantic suspense novels originally published by Mira / Mills & Boon. Recently Mira have changed the titles of some of Tess's backlist novels to make them more chilling, have called them Sunday Times bestsellers (which is not the case), and even put Harlan Coben's quote on the front panels - all of which we have asked them not to do, as we felt it might cause confusion among fans.

To avoid confusion in the future, you should note that any books published by Mira are reissues of romantic suspense novels and were first published in the 1990s. The harder hitting serial killer thrillers are published by Bantam/Transworld, and began when we first published THE SURGEON in 2002.

I should add that if you want to talk to Tess about this or other matters, you can do so by contacting her on her website ([...] or via her wonderful blog, or you'll be able to meet her in person when she tours the UK in January 08 with her new thriller, THE BONE GARDEN.

Hope this is helpful!

Selina Walker, publishing director, Transworld.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lame Tripe 14 May 2007
A shameful cash-in by the publishers. The style of Stolen is apposite to Gerritsen's usual well written thrillers, not surprising as it is rebranded old work. Unsuccessful old work at a guess because even though the style change was a disappointment, what was worse was the poor cliched writing.

The storyline is not all bad but tortuous lines and poor melodrama combine to make the book borderline unreadable. I bought it based on the author's record, now I will have to make sure I check all of her new books to see if they are of a similiar ilk. Looks like "Murder and Mayhem" is more of the same.

1.0 out of 5 stars So thrilling you've got to laugh! 10 Oct 2007
By Paul
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I opened this book to find it was a large print job - so not much content; but the prologue was a good start for a thriller, with the leading lady caught up in violent skulduggery at sea... The first chapter was arch, the second just corny, and the plot just got worse. The evil billionaire mastermind without the wit to use a cutout, the leading man's convenient family connections to several useful intelligence agencies and bedrooms, the several daring burglaries, the numerous heroic rescues...

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 24 May 2007
By madison
Having read most of Tess Gerritsen's Maura Isles/Jane Rizzoli books, I thought with such a great writer I couldn't go far wrong buying this new wrong one can be!

The style is amateur,immature and quite frankly irritating and the plot is as complex as any Mills and Boon novel-virtually non existent.

Note to Ms Gerritsen:recycling is great for the environment but not for writers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish! 3 Oct 2007
I'd have liked the option to give this 'no star' rating. Very unusual for me not to be able to read a book - couldn't get past chapter 2 with this one. Really bad.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful! 31 Oct 2007
Awful! Not worth anymore time than that...
"Gravity" is one of my all time favourites and I cannot believe it was written by the same author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Have I read this before? 6 Jun 2007
Being an avid reader of Tess Gerritsen I was thrilled when I finally managed to get this book. When I started reading the prologue I began thinking have I read this before. Reading a bit I began remembering parts of the plot and thinking yes but where have I read it this has only been published recently. Then using my investigative skills I went to the publishing info page where I found "First Published in GB under the title Thief of Hearts". Is this just a way of basically selling more copies of the same basic plot for the publisher and Tess Gerritsen to earn more money?
