While visiting Julian “Rat” Perkins, the 16-year-old boy with whom she survived a terrible ordeal, Maura Isles is startled to learn that all the students at Evensong are survivors of violence. Isolated in the Maine wilderness, the boarding school teaches its students the science and investigative skills needed for a high-level crimefighting career. Meanwhile in Boston, Detective Jane Rizzoli investigates the murder of Teddy Clock’s foster family, a slaughter that only Teddy survived. When Teddy is also threatened, Rizzoli hides him at Evensong. But she and Maura discover that even the secluded school cannot shut out a gathering threat, and that the key to the murders is within its gates.
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.
