    Internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen took an unusual route to a writing career. A graduate of Stanford University, Tess went on to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she was awarded her M.D.

    While on maternity leave from her work as a physician, she began to write fiction. In 1987, her first novel was published. Call After Midnight, a romantic thriller, was followed by eight more romantic suspense novels. She also wrote a screenplay, “Adrift”, which aired as a 1993 CBS Movie of the Week starring Kate Jackson.

    Tess’s first medical thriller, Harvest, was released in hardcover in 1996, and it marked her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Her suspense novels since then have been: Life Support (1997), Bloodstream (1998), Gravity (1999), The Surgeon (2001), The Apprentice (2002), The Sinner (2003), Body Double (2004), Vanish (2005), The Mephisto Club (2006), The Bone Garden (2007), The Keepsake (2008; UK title: Keeping the Dead), Ice Cold (2010; UK title: The Killing Place), The Silent Girl (2011), and her forthcoming Last To Die (August 2012.) Her books have been published in forty countries, and more than 25 million copies have been sold around the world.

    Her books have been top-3 bestsellers in the United States and abroad. She has won both the Nero Wolfe Award (for Vanish) and the Rita Award (for The Surgeon). Critics around the world have praised her novels as “Pulse-pounding fun” (Philadelphia Inquirer), “Scary and brilliant” (Toronto Globe and Mail), and “Polished, riveting prose” (Chicago Tribune). Publisher Weekly has dubbed her the “medical suspense queen”.

    Her series of novels featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the TNT television series “Rizzoli & Isles” starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander.

    LIFE SUPPORT
    by Tess Gerritsen
    New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen weaves authenticity into another novel of searing medical suspense, as a dedicated woman doctor probes into the cause of a mystifying and lethal outbreak.

    The quiet overnight shift at Springer Hospital ER suits Dr. Toby Harper just fine -- until she admits a man in critical condition from a possible viral infection of the brain. The delirious man barely responds to treatment -- and then disappears without a trace. Before Toby can find him, a second case occurs, revealing a terrifying fact: the virus can only be spread through direct tissue exchange. Following a trail of death that winds from a pregnant sixteen-year-old prostitute to her own home, Toby discovers the unthinkable: the epidemic didn't just happen -- someone let it loose....

    BLOODSTREAM
    by Tess Gerritsen

    With her acclaimed novels Harvest and Life Support, Tess Gerritsen has injected a powerful dose of adrenaline into the medical thriller. Now, in a new blockbuster, Gerritsen melds page-turning suspense with chilling realism as a small-town doctor races to unravel the roots of a violent outbreak -- before it destroys everything she loves.

    Lapped by he gentle waters of Locust Lake, the small resort town of Tranquility, Maine, seems like the perfect spot for Dr. Claire Elliot to shelter her adolescent son, Noah, from the distractions of the big city and the lingering memory of his father's death. But with the first snap of winter comes shocking news that puts her practise on the line: a teenage boy under her care has committed an appalling act of violence. And as Claire and all of Tranquility soon discover, it is just the start of a chain of lethal outbursts among the town's teenagers.

    As the rash of disturbing behavior grows, Claire uncovers a horrifying secret: this is not the first time it has happened. Twice a century,the children of Tranquility lash out with deadly violence. Claire suspects that there is a biological cause for the epidemic, and she fears that the placid Locust Lake may conceal an insidious danger. As she races to save Tranquility -- and her son -- from harm, Claire discovers an even greater threat: a shocking conspiracy to manipulate nature, and turn innocents to slaughter.

    by Tess Gerritsen

    Dr. Emma Watson has been training for the adventure of a lifetime: to study living beings in space.

    The Apprentice
    (Rizzoli & Isles #2)
    by Tess Gerritsen

    The bestselling author of The Surgeon returns—and so does that chilling novel’s diabolical villain. Though held behind bars, Warren Hoyt still haunts a helpless city, seeming to bequeath his evil legacy to a student all-too-diligent . . . and all-too-deadly.

    THE APPRENTICE

    It is a boiling hot Boston summer. Adding to the city’s woes is a series of shocking crimes, in which wealthy men are made to watch while their wives are brutalized. A sadistic demand that ends in abduction and death.

    The pattern suggests one man: serial killer Warren Hoyt, recently removed from the city’s streets. Police can only assume an acolyte is at large, a maniac basing his attacks on the twisted medical techniques of the madman he so admires. At least that’s what Detective Jane Rizzoli thinks. Forced again to confront the killer who scarred her—literally and figuratively—she is determined to finally end Hoyt’s awful influence . . . even if it means receiving more resistance from her all-male homicide squad.

    But Rizzoli isn’t counting on the U.S. government’s sudden interest. Or on meeting Special Agent Gabriel Dean, who knows more than he will tell. Most of all, she isn’t counting on becoming a target herself, once Hoyt is suddenly free, joining his mysterious blood brother in a vicious vendetta. . . .

    Filled with superbly created characters—and the medical and police procedural details that are her trademark—The Apprentice is Tess Gerritsen at her brilliant best. Set in a stunning world where evil is easy to learn and hard to end, this is a thriller by a master who could teach other authors a thing or two.

    The Sinner
    (Rizzoli & Isles, #3)
    by Tess Gerritsen
    Not even the icy temperatures of a typical New England winter can match the bone-chilling scene of carnage discovered at the chapel of Our Lady of Divine Light. Within the cloistered convent lie two nuns–one dead, one critically injured–victims of an unspeakably savage attacker. The brutal crime appears to be without motive, but medical examiner Maura Isles’s autopsy of the dead woman yields a shocking surprise: Twenty-year-old Sister Camille gave birth before she was murdered. Then another body is found, mutilated beyond recognition. Together, Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As long-buried secrets come to light, Maura Isles finds herself drawn inexorably toward the heart of an investigation that strikes close to home–and toward a dawning revelation about the killer’s identity too shattering to consider.

    Unknown bones, untold secrets, and unsolved crimes from the distant past cast ominous shadows on the present in the dazzling new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen.

    Present day: Julia Hamill has made a horrifying discovery on the grounds of her new home in rural Massachusetts: a skull buried in the rocky soil–human, female, and, according to the trained eye of Boston medical examiner Maura Isles, scarred with the unmistakable marks of murder. But whoever this nameless woman was, and whatever befell her, is knowledge lost to another time. . . .

    Boston, 1830: In order to pay for his education, Norris Marshall, a talented but penniless student at Boston Medical College, has joined the ranks of local “resurrectionists”–those who plunder graveyards and harvest the dead for sale on the black market. Yet even this ghoulish commerce pales beside the shocking murder of a nurse found mutilated on the university hospital grounds. And when a distinguished doctor meets the same grisly fate, Norris finds that trafficking in the illicit cadaver trade has made him a prime suspect.

    To prove his innocence, Norris must track down the only witness to have glimpsed the killer: Rose Connolly, a beautiful seamstress from the Boston slums who fears she may be the next victim. Joined by a sardonic, keenly intelligent young man named Oliver Wendell Holmes, Norris and Rose comb the city–from its grim cemeteries and autopsy suites to its glittering mansions and centers of Brahmin power–on the trail of a maniacal fiend who lurks where least expected . . . and who waits for his next lethal opportunity.

    With unflagging suspense and pitch-perfect period detail, The Bone Garden deftly interweaves the thrilling narratives of its nineteenth- and twenty-first century protagonists, tracing the dark mystery at its heart across time and place to a finale as ingeniously conceived as it is shocking. Bold, bloody, and brilliant, this is Tess Gerritsen’s finest achievement to date.

    "An old mystery is crossed with a modern story in the latest from Gerritsen (The Mephisto Club, 2006, etc.).Julia Hamill, newly divorced and still smarting, purchases an old house outside Boston. Determined to dig a garden, she instead finds the bones of a long-dead woman–the apparent victim of murder–which starts her on a journey to ferret out the story behind her death. Julia connects with Henry, a no-nonsense 89-year-old with boxes of documents that once belonged to the now-deceased previous owner of Julia’s home. The two discover a mystery dating back to the 1830s. At the heart of it is a baby named Meggie, born to the beautiful but doomed Irish chambermaid, Aurnia. Married to a man who cares nothing for her, Aurnia lays dying in a maternity ward with her sister, Rose, at her side. Rose, a spirited 17-year-old, takes Meggie to protect her from Aurnia’s husband, but soon finds herself the target of a bizarre manhunt. Someone is after the child–and Rose, as well, because she witnessed a horrifying murder. The body count piles up as Rose struggles to remain free of those who would take Meggie from her. Meanwhile, a young medical student becomes the chief suspect of the West End Reaper killings when he stumbles onto another terrible homicide. Although he fights the prospect, eventually he and Rose join forces to solve the murders and protect the baby at the heart of the mysterious deaths. Readers with delicate stomachs may find Gerritsen’s graphic descriptions of corpse dissection hard to take, but the story, which digs up a dark Boston of times long past, entices readers to keep turning pages long after their bedtimes."

    The Silent Girl
    (Rizzoli & Isles #9)

    by Tess Gerritsen
    Lorraine Bracco loves The Silent Girl, saying "She did it to me again! I can't get anything done when Tess puts out a new book and this one caught me as I was starting work on Season 2 of "Rizzoli & Isles." So instead of memorizing my lines, I was sucked up into Boston's Chinatown with Jane, Maura, and company and could not put this one down. Just like the other books. Every time. And to top it off, now I have to wait for the NEXT one to come out--you're killing me, Tess! So good..."

    No one takes readers to the dark side and back with more razor-sharp jolts and sheer suspense than the storytelling master behind Ice Cold and The Keepsake. When New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen has a tale to tell, put yourself in her expert hands—and prepare for the shocks and thrills that are certain to follow.

    Every crime scene tells a story. Some keep you awake at night. Others haunt your dreams. The grisly display homicide cop Jane Rizzoli finds in Boston’s Chinatown will do both.

    In the murky shadows of an alley lies a female’s severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, her head nearly severed. Two strands of silver hair—not human—cling to her body. They are Rizzoli’s only clues, but they’re enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make the startling discovery: that this violent death had a chilling prequel.

    Nineteen years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead. But one woman connected to that massacre is still alive: a mysterious martial arts master who knows a secret she dares not tell, a secret that lives and breathes in the shadows of Chinatown. A secret that may not even be human. Now she’s the target of someone, or something, deeply and relentlessly evil.

    Cracking a crime resonating with bone-chilling echoes of an ancient Chinese legend, Rizzoli and Isles must outwit an unseen enemy with centuries of cunning—and a swift, avenging blade.

    HARVEST
    by Tess Gerritsen
    Medical resident Dr. Abby Matteo is elated when the elite cardiac transplant team at Boston's Bayside Hospital taps her as a potential recruit. But faced with a tormenting life-and-death decision, Abby helps direct a crash victim's harvested heart to a dying teenager -- instead of the wealthy older woman who was supposed to receive it. The repercussions leave Abby shaken and plagued with self-doubt.

    Suddenly, a new heart appears, and the woman's transplant is completed. Then Abby makes a terrible discovery. The donor records have been falsified -- the new heart has not come through the proper channels. Defying the hospital's demands for silence, she begins her own investigation that reveals a murderous, unthinkable conspiracy. Every move Abby makes spawns a vicious backlash...and on a ship anchored in the waters of Boston harbor, the grisly truth lies waiting.

    Tess Gerritsen

    Trích:

    Tess Gerritsen - người đàn bà treo ngược nỗi sợ!


    Tác giả đang có sách bán chạy trên khắp thế giới Tess Gerritsen đã đi một con đường bất thường để đến với nghiệp viết. Chị tốt nghiệp Đại học Stanford, sau đó lấy bằng M.D về Y khoa ở Đại học California, San Francisco. Chị đã là một bác sĩ có tiếng trước khi thực sự đến với văn chương. Chị đã từ bỏ vai trò một bác sĩ, chỉ với hai lý do: để chăm sóc hai con và vì đam mê được viết.

    Chị xuất bản tiểu thuyết đầu tiên vào năm 1987 - một tiểu thuyết kinh dị lãng mạn có tên After Midnight(tạm dịch: Nửa đêm về sáng). Chị cũng viết cả kịch bản phim, một trong số đó là Adrift cho CBS Movie vào năm 1993.

    Tiểu thuyết kinh dị có liên quan đến ngành y đầu tiên của chị là Harvest (Mùa gặt), ra đời năm 1996, đó là mốc đầu tiên đánh dấu con đường “tiếm ngôi” của chị trên bảng xếp hạng sách bán chạy nhất của Thời báo New York. Các tiểu thuyết ăn khách tiếp theo của chị là Life Support (1997), Bloodstream (1998), Gravity (1999), The Surgeon (2001), The Apprentice (2002), The Sinner (2003), Body Double (2004), Vanish (2005), The Mephisto Club (2006), and The Bone Garden (2007). Sách của chị đã được dịch ra 31 thứ tiếng với hơn 15 triệu cuốn được bán trên toàn thế giới. Tới nay, Tess đã cho ra mắt độc giả 18 tiểu thuyết.

    Không chỉ là tác giả có sách bán chạy nhất trên tờ Thời báo New York của Mỹ, chị còn là best-seller tại Đức và vương quốc Anh. Chị từng giành cả hai giải: Nero Wolfe Award (cho tiểu thuyết Vanish) và Rita Award (cho cuốn The Surgeon). Các nhà phê bình trên thế giới cũng không tiếc lời khen ngợi tiểu thuyết của chị.

    Các tiểu thuyết của Tess khắc họa một cách tinh tế tâm lý của nữ giới, chị rất giỏi trong cách xây dựng một không khí căng thẳng với tình tiết câu chuyện ly kỳ, zigzag, thể hiện sự hiểu biết sâu sắc về bản tính con người.

    “Tôi luôn cho rằng, lo sợ rất khác với khủng hoảng, cũng giống như cô độc rất khác với lạnh lẽo vậy.” - Chị nói.

    Một đôi giày hoa thêu, một thi thể kỳ dị, một đoạn nhạc thê thảm, một cái bóng đe dọa, có thể làm ta sợ hãi. Nhưng lo sợ lại là… tưởng tượng một con sâu rơi xuống cánh tay, bạn sẽ thế nào? Đương nhiên, tay bạn sẽ vội vã lắc cánh tay, cố gắng phủi nó đi, tranh thủ di chết nó.

    Nhưng tưởng tượng thêm chút nữa, bạn đã chết rồi. Lúc này, con sâu rơi xuống, bạn hoàn toàn không còn tí sức lực nào, mắt trợn trừng nhìn nó ung dung hút máu bạn, bụng nó phình dần lên, cuối cùng nó nghiêng ngả bò đi, mãn nguyện vô cùng. Sau đó, ruồi nhặng, muỗi dĩn, rệp bọ cũng đua nhau đến, bạn trở thành bữa tiệc ê hề của bọn sâu bọ, chúng chen chúc trên thi thể bạn, cắn xé bạn, từ từ thưởng thức da thịt bạn, mạch máu bạn, cho tới khi cuối cùng còn lại một đống xương…

    Lúc này cái đang diễn ra trong bạn chính là nỗi hãi sợ.
    Yếu tố đầu tiên của hãi sợ, là cái chết.
    Yếu tố lớn thứ hai của hãi sợ, là vô tri.

    Hết giờ làm quay về, mở cửa, vào nhà, đó là chuyện thường; nếu bạn biết đằng sau cánh cửa đang khóa kia có một con hổ, bạn sẽ sợ; nếu bạn biết đằng sau cánh cửa có thể là một cái xác, bạn sẽ hãi sợ; nếu bạn biết hoặc dự cảm được trong nhà đã xảy ra một việc gì khủng khiếp, nhưng không thực sự biết được đó là cái gì, lúc đó, đứng trước cánh cửa đang khóa, cảm giác của bạn là lo lắng. Điều bạn chưa biết nằm bên ngoài phạm vi mà bạn có thể kiểm soát, nó khiến bạn mơ hồ, khó dự đoán, cũng không cách nào khống chế, chỉ có thể đón nhận hậu quả một cách thụ động, điều đó có sức mạnh tàn phá tâm lý khủng khiếp.   

    Bởi vậy, lo sợ là có tuần tự, nó bắt rễ từ hai thứ sâu xa nhất trong con người: từ chối cái chết, ham muốn được biết và [khả năng] khống chế. Thậm chí, chúng ta còn có thể liệt kê ra một “định luật lo sợ”: có một nguy hiểm to lớn (thường là cái chết) tồn tại, nó đang ở cạnh bạn, ẩn nấp trong cuộc sống thường nhật của bạn, mà bạn hoàn toàn không xác định được thời gian, địa điểm, cách thức mà nó sẽ xảy ra với mình.

    Một tiểu thuyết kinh dị hay sẽ viết về những nỗi lo sợ như thế, chứ không phải là hãi hùng. Không chỉ đi vào một câu chuyện đáng sợ, vạch ra một vụ mưu sát, không chỉ xây dựng một không khí căng thẳng mà còn phải gọi lên được cảm giác lo sợ đang ẩn nấp đâu đó sâu trong mỗi người.

    Trên ý nghĩa đó, Tess Gerritsen là một “nhà tiểu thuyết treo ngược nỗi hãi sợ”, chí ít là chị đang đi trên con đường đúng đắn. Tiểu thuyết “Thế thân” (Body Double) của chị kể về một câu chuyện không đáng sợ lắm nhưng đầy những mối nghi ngại. Nữ bác sĩ pháp y họp xong trở về nhà, phát hiện “mình” bị mưu sát. Cô chưa bao giờ biết mình còn có một người chị em song sinh trên đời này. Đương nhiên, cô muốn tìm đến bố mẹ. Cô đã tìm được mẹ trong tù, bà là một kẻ giết người liên hoàn điên cuồng, một kẻ buôn người. Bà giết thai phụ, bán con của họ để kiếm tiền. Những ai biết chuyện đều chết dần chết mòn, thân thế của nữ pháp y ngày càng trở nên mơ hồ, cô là con gái của một kẻ cuồng giết người, hay là con gái của một người bị hại nào đó? Sau lưng nữ sát thủ đang ở trong tù còn có ai? Trong quá trình tìm kiếm, cô dần phải lòng tình nhân của người chị đã bị giết, một cảnh sát đang có vấn đề trong quan hệ vợ chồng. Chuyện tình này sẽ đem lại điều gì đây?

    Lối trần thuật của tiểu thuyết không phức tạp, chỉ là đan cài hai sợi dây “yêu đương” và “chết chóc” vào với nhau một cách tài tình, thế là đủ tạo hiệu quả ly kỳ rùng rợn. Mặc dù như thế, người đọc “sành” một chút vẫn có thể đoán ra kết cục câu chuyện. Vì vậy, chỗ tiểu thuyết thực sự cuốn hút người đọc không phải ở kết cục, mà là ở từng trang một, cho tới trang cuối cùng, khi tất cả đã sáng rõ, độc giả chầm chậm gấp sách lại, thì trong lòng như bay lên một đám mây: câu chuyện như thế này không phải là kinh dị quá, vậy tại sao nó lại khiến ta toát mồ hôi hột, khiến ta lo sợ đến thế nhỉ?

    Nghĩ kỹ thêm một chút, thì ra cái khiến ta sợ chính máu trong huyết quản ta, ta sợ chính các gen trong ta, sợ thân thể của ta, sợ những ấn ký di truyền mà cha mẹ để lại trên ta. Bản thân ta mới khiến ta hãi sợ nhiều nhất, vì nó chỉ hướng tới cái chết, vì nó dường như là cái mà ta không thể hiểu và khống chế được. Nữ pháp y khổ sở tìm kiếm, muốn biết được “tôi là ai”, cũng là để biết “tôi không là ai”. Nhưng bất kể nói thế nào, “chúng ta đều là hậu duệ của ma quỷ”.

    Nếu bạn không biết mình là ai, bạn sẽ lo sợ, vì đó là vì yếu tố thứ hai: vô tri – không biết. Nếu bạn đã biết rồi, bạn vẫn sẽ lo sợ, vì yếu tố thứ nhất: cái chết. Tác giả dựng nên cái vòng vây này, để bạn mãi mãi bị nhốt trong lo sợ, không sao thoát ra được. Thật là cao diệu.  

    Từng có người nói, một bác sĩ tâm lý tốt tất nhiên phải “kiêm chức”, hoặc là một sát thủ biến thái, hoặc là một tiểu thuyết gia. Không rõ có nên xếp nhà văn Mỹ gốc Hoa Tess Gerritsen vào trong đó!? Nữ bác sĩ nội khoa từng rất thành công này vì bận chăm sóc con cái, và hơn thế, vì tình yêu văn học, đã từ chức để theo đuổi nghiệp văn.

    Cái mà nghề y để lại cho Tess, đó là những lý giải về cái chết, sự hiểu biết về con người, sự thành thục về tâm lý vi diệu - tất cả đã lưu dấu trên những con chữ của chị, giúp chị trở thành một trong những tên tuổi danh giá trong làng tiểu thuyết Mỹ. Có lẽ, vì đã từng là một bác sĩ, nên chị… biết cách khiến người khác hãi sợ?

    Vanish
    (Rizzoli & Isles, #5)
    by Tess Gerritsen

    A blessed event becomes a nightmare for pregnant homicide detective Jane Rizzoli when she finds herself on the wrong side of a hostage crisis in this timely and relentless new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of Body Double.

    A nameless, beautiful woman appears to be just another corpse in the morgue. An apparent suicide, she lies on a gurney, awaiting the dissecting scalpel of medical examiner Maura Isles. But when Maura unzips the body bag and looks down at the body, she gets the fright of her life. The corpse opens its eyes.

    Very much alive, the woman is rushed to the hospital, where with shockingly cool precision, she murders a security guard and seizes hostages . . . one of them a pregnant patient, Jane Rizzoli.

    Who is this violent, desperate soul, and what does she want? As the tense hours tick by, Maura joins forces with Jane’s husband, FBI agent Gabriel Dean, to track down the mysterious killer’s identity. When federal agents suddenly appear on the scene, Maura and Gabriel realize that they are dealing with a case that goes far deeper than just an ordinary hostage crisis.

    Only Jane, trapped with the armed madwoman, holds the key to the mystery. And only she can solve it–if she survives the night.

    Body Double
    (Rizzoli & Isles #4)

    by Tess Gerritsen

    Boston medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles literally meets her match–and must face a savage serial killer and shattering personal revelations–in the brilliant new novel of suspense by the New York Times bestselling author of The Surgeon and The Sinner.

    Dr. Maura Isles makes her living dealing with death. As a pathologist in a major metropolitan city, she has seen more than her share of corpses every day–many of them victims of violent murder. But never before has her blood run cold, and never has the grim expression “dead ringer” rung so terrifyingly true. Because never before has the lifeless body on the medical examiner’s table been her own.

    Yet there can be no denying the mind-reeling evidence before her shocked eyes and those of her colleagues, including Detective Jane Rizzoli: the woman found shot to death outside Maura’s home is the mirror image of Maura, down to the most intimate physical nuances. Even more chilling is the discovery that they share the same birth date and blood type. For the stunned Maura, an only child, there can be just one explanation. And when a DNA test confirms that Maura’s mysterious doppelgänger is in fact her twin sister, an already bizarre murder investigation becomes a disturbing and dangerous excursion into a past full of dark secrets.

    Searching for answers, Maura is drawn to a seaside town in Maine where other horrifying surprises await. But perhaps more frightening, an unknown murderer is at large on a cross-country killing spree. To stop the massacre and uncover the twisted truth about her own roots, Maura must probe her first living subject: the mother that she never knew . . . an icy and cunning woman who could be responsible for giving Maura life–and who just may have a plan to take it away.

    The Surgeon
    (Rizzoli & Isles #1)

    In her most masterful novel of medical suspense, New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen creates a villain of unforgettable evil--and the one woman who can catch him before he kills again.

    He slips into their homes at night and walks silently into bedrooms where women lie sleeping, unaware of the horrors they soon will endure. The precision of the killer's methods suggests he is a deranged man of medicine, propelling the Boston newspapers and the frightened public to name him "The Surgeon."

    The cops' only clue rests with another surgeon, the victim of a nearly identical crime. Two years ago, Dr. Catherine Cordell fought back and killed her attacker before he could complete his assault. Now she hides her fears of intimacy behind a cool and elegant exterior and a well-earned reputation as a top trauma surgeon.

    Cordell's careful facade is about to crack as this new killer recreates, with chilling accuracy, the details of Cordell's own ordeal. With every new murder he seems to be taunting her, cutting ever closer, from her hospital to her home. Her only comfort comes from Thomas Moore, the detective assigned to the case. But even Moore cannot protect Cordell from a brilliant hunter who somehow understands--and savors--the secret fears of every woman he kills.

    Filled with the authentic detail that is the trademark of this doctor turned author . . . and peopled with rich and complex characters--from the ER to the squad room to the city morgue--here is a thriller of unprecedented depth and suspense. Exposing the shocking link between those who kill and cure, punish and protect, The Surgeon is Tess Gerritsen's most exciting accomplishment yet.

    The Mephisto Club
    (Rizzoli & Isles, #6)
    by Tess Gerritsen

    The Mephisto Club is a novel that written by Tess Gerritsen. This book was published on September 12, 2006.

    This book features a "club" called the Mephisto club, a group of demon hunters who follow evil and study where the outbreaks of evil are in the world.


    Blending medical suspense with police procedurals, Tess Gerritsen has made a name for herself in the thriller field with action-packed books like Harvest, Body Double and Vanish. In The Mephisto Club, Gerritsen’s latest thriller, she brings back her two popular characters, Detective Jane Rizzoli and Boston medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles. When the book opens, Jane is dealing with the life changes that have come from having a new baby and Maura is struggling to fight the feelings she is having for a Catholic priest. Their personal lives are put on the back burner, however, when they are called to the scene of a brutal murder. A young woman is dead, and scrawled in blood at the scene are the words I HAVE SINNED.

    Clues soon lead them to a group of scholars who call themselves The Mephisto Club and claim their sole purpose to be seeking out and proving to the rest of the world that evil does indeed exist in this world. As the two women become more familiar with the club, they begin to suspect that either the club has become a target of their mysterious killer or that the killer may be a member of the club itself.

    Like all of Gerritsen’s previous novels, The Mephisto Club is a fast-paced thriller that quickly sucks you in and keeps you turning the pages. Gerritsen does an excellent job of not only keeping the tension at a high level; she also succeeds in not sacrificing character development in favor of plot. Both Jane and Maura (and other periphery characters) become more fleshed out and real in each subsequent book they appear in. Because of this reason, readers will probably benefit most from starting at the beginning of Gerritsen’s series when the characters are introduced. However, The Mephisto Club does succeed as a stand-alone thriller for those who want to jump in without first reading the other books.

    Tess Gerritsen is definitely one of the most talented authors working in the medical thriller field. Her books are well-plotted, full of action and feature some of the best characters in the genre. The Mephisto Club is another fine addition to her list of accomplishments.

    The Keepsake - Keeping the Dead

    [​IMG]


    The Keepsake (The seventh book in the Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles series)

    (Sep 9, 2008)

    Tess Gerritsen

    If you've been enjoying the Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles thriller series, then you'll want to take a look at the seventh book in the series, THE KEEPSAKE.

    When an "ancient" Egyptian mummy is discovered in the basement of Boston's Crispin Museum, experts are eager to delve into her mysteries. Pathologist Maura Isles, too, is fascinated by the mysterious "Madam X," and she's delighted to be invited into the CT scan room. But as the scan proceeds, everyone gives a gasp of horror as an image of a bullet is revealed.

    Madam X is not ancient at all. She is in fact a modern murder victim.

    When the preserved body of a second victim is found -- and then a third -- it becomes clear to both Maura and Detective Jane Rizzoli that a maniac is at large and compiling a grotesque collection of his own.

    And he's already chosen his next victim.

    -Tess Gerritsen-

    Bestseller Gerritsen's at times lackluster series heroines prove they can shine in her solid seventh thriller to feature Det. Jane Rizzoli and Dr. Maura Isles (after The Mephisto Club). When medical examiner Isles studies an X-ray scan of Madame X, which everyone assumes is a newly discovered Egyptian mummy, at Boston's Crispin Museum, she realizes the mummy isn't a priceless artifact but a recent murder victim, gruesomely preserved. Rizzoli focuses the police investigation on Dr. Josephine Pulcillo, a young archeologist recently hired by the museum who may have something to hide. More victims soon turn up, including a tsantsa (shrunken head) in a hidden museum chamber and a corpse resembling a well-preserved bog body in Pulcillo's car. After Pulcillo disappears, Rizzoli and Isles must scramble to find her before she becomes another trophy in the killer's growing collection. As usual, Gerritsen delivers an intricate plot that will keep readers guessing.

    New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen knows how to expertly dissect a brilliantly suspenseful story, all the while keeping fascinated readers riveted to her side. By turns darkly enthralling and relentlessly surprising, The Keepsake showcases an author at the peak of her storytelling powers.

    For untold years, the perfectly preserved mummy had lain forgotten in the dusty basement of Boston's Crispin Museum. Now its sudden rediscovery by museum staff is both a major coup and an attention-grabbing mystery. Dubbed 'Madam X,'s the mummy to all appearances, an ancient Egyptian artifact seems a ghoulish godsend for the financially struggling institution. But medical examiner Maura Isles soon discovers a macabre message hidden within the corpse's a horrifying proof that this 'centuries-old' relic is instead a modern-day murder victim.

    To Maura and Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, the forensic evidence is unmistakable, its implications terrifying. And when the grisly remains of yet another woman are found in the hidden recesses of the museum, it becomes chillingly clear that a maniac is at large and is now taunting them.
    Archaeologist Josephine Pulcillo's blood runs cold when the killer's cryptic missives are discovered, and her darkest dread becomes real when the carefully preserved corpse of yet a third victim is left in her car like a gruesome offering's or perhaps a ghastly promise of what's to come.

    The twisted killer's familiarity with post-mortem rituals suggests to Maura and Jane that he may have scientific expertise in common with Josephine. Only Josephine knows that her stalker shares a knowledge even more personally terrifying: details of a dark secret she had thought forever buried.

    Now Maura must summon her own dusty knowledge of ancient death traditions to unravel his twisted endgame. And when Josephine vanishes, Maura and Jane have precious little time to derail the Archaeology Killer before he adds another chilling piece to his monstrous collection.

    Ice Cold
    (The Killing Place)


    (The eighth book in the Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles series)
    (2010)
    A novel by
    Tess Gerritsen
    New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen's relentless, inventive novels take readers on pulse-racing thrill rides that are as satisfying as they are heart-stopping. Now, in this edge-of-your-seat suspense novel, a mysteriously isolated town stands abandoned as a silent watcher waits.​

    In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they're stranded with no help in sight.
    As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages. The town's previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness - someone who is watching Maura and her friends.

    Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura's charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend. The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless - and the chilling truth about Maura's fate.
