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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Karen | 2/20/2014

    " Very good, a little bloody, but I enjoyed it. Looking forward to picking up the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Julia | 2/18/2014

    " This was an intense book. I stayed up late reading it, because I wanted to find out what would happen. The killer is very evil. I was a little annoyed by the parts where we are in the killer's head. I thought it was giving away too much about his identity, and I wanted to be more surprised. This was the first appearance of Jane Rizzoli, and I found her a bit whiny and abrasive, but I still enjoyed reading about her and the case. Tess Gerritsen has written some memorable books and this is one of them. I can't wait to read more from her. "
