Synopsis
Dr Abby DiMatteo - a second-year surgical student in Boston Bayside's elite cardiac team - is about to make an anguished, crucial decision that will jeopardize her career. A car-crash victim's healthy heart is ready to be harvested, having been cross-matched to a private patient, forty-six year-old Nina Voss. Instead Abby and her fellow medic, Vivian Chao, hatch a bold plan to make sure the transplant goes to a dying seventeen-year-old boy who is also a perfect match. The repercussions are powerful and swift. Dr Chao resigns; and Abby is shaken but unrepentant - until she meets the frail, tormented Nina. Then a new heart for Nina Voss suddenly appears, the transplant is completed - and Abby makes a terrible discovery: Nina's heart has not come through the right channels. Defying Bayside Hospital's demands for silence, Abby, with Vivian Chao's help, plunges into an investigation that reveals an intricate and murderous chain of deceptions. Every move Abby makes spawns a vicious backlash. And, in a ship anchored in the stagnant waters of Boston Harbour, a final grisly discovery lies waiting ...

Well, what can I say what a brilliant book. She is such a fantastic writer that kept me entralled all the time I was reading the book, I just didn't want to put it down. It has you guessing through the book about which people are involved, some I guessed wrong and the ending well!!!!
I'm pleased to say that I don't have to wait ages before I read another gripping thriller from this author, I am well and truly hooked on her books.
Returning this to Purplerosebud,thank you. I am so glad I found the time to read it before she passed it on at the unconvention.

Weirdly I thought this was the least impressive of Gerritsens I've read so far - good concept but I found some of the characters lacklustre and predictable. A good read but certainly not equal to some I've read.

My boyf wants to read this next, then I'll probably relay it - thanks again for sharing it!
