  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 5/3/2011

    " Another great medical thriller from Gerritsen. Fast read and hard to put down as you try to find out just why the residents of a posh retirement community are dying--and not from old age! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 4/11/2011

    " Not a favorite by far. I was actually having so much trouble getting into the book I lost it and had to find a replacement for the library!! I have never lost a book before! The ending was rushed, one thing I notice a little to often with this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 3/30/2011

    " Want to live way past your prime and still be in it? Who knew human growth hormone can make it happen (at least in fiction). Creepy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kona | 2/2/2011

    " This was one of her first books written and the last one I read so it wasn't as gripping as her later ones. A good read, but I could definitely tell what was going to happen before it did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 1/21/2011

    " Another great book by Tess Gerritsen.
    So far I have really enjoyed the two books that I have read. This one and Bloodstream.
    Will definitely keep reading her work. "

    " Good pulp fiction thriller with which to pass the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laylah | 9/20/2010

    " Very competent medical thriller. The pace is brisk. The plot is quite tight. The mood is a little too oppressive as the heroine is dealt blow after blow after blow. Think Fugitive with more medical/technical detail and a female hero. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candace | 9/5/2010

    " She does a good job with medical mysteries. "

    " Really good medical mystery and also a quick read! "
