Synopsis

Abby DiMatteo, immersed in her second year as a surgical resident at Boston's Bayside Hospital, is elated when the hospital's elite cardiac transplant team taps her as a potential recruit. But soon she must make a critical decision that jeopardizes her entire career.A car crash victim's healthy heart is ready to be harvested and is conveniently cross-matched to a wealthy patient, forty-six-year-old Nina Voss. Abby and chief resident Vivian Chao hatch a bold plan to make sure that the transplant goes instead to dying seventeen-year old boy. Then, after a new heart for Nina appears, Abby makes a terrible discovery -- Nina's heart has not come through the proper channels.Defying the hospital's demands for silence, Abby, with Dr. Chao's help, plunges into an investigation that reveals an intricate -- and murderous -- chain of deceptions. Every move she makes spawns a vicious backlash...and, in a ship anchored in the stagnant waters of Boston Harbor, a final, grisly discovery lies waiting...Compelling and provocative, Harvest is a mesmerizing tale -- and one that introduces Tess Gerritsen as a new master of first-class suspense fiction.

About the Author

It is pretty rare for someone to achieve a Medical Doctor degree, become a practicing physician, and a very successful author. That is the career path followed by Tess Gerritsen, an internationally bestselling author. Tess graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Anthropology, then her MD. from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco. From there, began her interesting journey.

Tess went to work as a physician in Honolulu, Hawaii, and during a maternity leave from that job, she wrote her first romantic suspense novel, Call After Midnight, which was followed by eight other such novels. She also wrote a screenplay, Adrift, which became a 1993 CBS movie starring Kate Jackson.

The author then began writing medical thrillers in 1996, with her novel, Harvest, which was her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. More than 15 books in the medical suspense genre followed. They were all aptly named, such as.....Life Support, Bloodstream, The Surgeon, The Bone Garden, and several others. Her books have been published in many countries, with over 30 million copies being sold internationally.

Tess Gerritsen's series of novels featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the very successful TNT television series, Rizzoli and Isles. She is now retired from medicine, and continues to write full time from her home in Maine.

tess is like the new robin cook. they even come from the same city, boston. i like reading her books, especially now, because although i dont miss boston, its cool to say yes that street i always was there or oh i lived there or whatever. the actual story is about selling harvested organs (read this while i watched that on nip tuck!) and the people and plot were great. cant wait to read more of her books.
