Book Review: Under The Knife



I’ve just got back from holiday, during which I read about 15 books, so there will undoubtedly be quite a few blog posts popping up within the next week or so.


One of the first things I did when preparing for the holiday was to make sure I had enough Tess Gerritsen books in my stash. She’s a must for any holiday; for any time at all, actually. I love her, I think she’s the only modern crime fiction writer who comes close to Mary Higgins Clark in quality of suspense.


Under the Knife: a patient dies during a routine operation, and when Dr. Kate Chesne comes under scrutiny, it is discovered that the woman had previously had a heart attack and never should have undergone the operation in the first place. Chesne is bewildered and begins to doubt her own abilities as a doctor, but sets out to prove herself innocent. Gradually a web of deceit is uncovered, and as usual with Gerritsen, the twists are many and unexpected. Definitely worth a read.
