79. Harvest by Tess Gerritsen

I was under the impression that this book was part of the Jane Rizolli series, but she is not where to be found. Which is all right, because Harvest is a great stand-along medical thriller. Abby DiMatteo is a resident in Bayside Hospital's surgery program. Her life is going great; she impresses the chief of surgery with her skills and intelligence and she has moved in with a handsome and talented surgeon who is a member of the presitgious transplant team. When she is asked to join that team, her dreams are complete. However, things are not quite what they seem (are they ever?) and Abby finds her life falling apart just when she thought she had it made. Unwilling to accept the status quo, she delves into unanswered questions and puts her life in jeopardy. The whole issue of cash for organs come into play as Abby and Detective Katzka of the homocide sqaud investigate the unknown origins of donated organs as well as some suspicious deaths. As the other Gerritsen books I've read, Harvest captivates you from the beginning. It is a well-written thriller that is sure to keep you awake to the final page. Rating: 4.25


  1. I'd like to read this. The part about the organ donation interests me. This is another author I haven't read, but I own a couple of books by her.

  2. This is one of my favorites by Gerritsen! Glad you enjoyed it.
