This book was worth a listen to, but the story was rather unbelievable, and I did feel irritated by the mother/son/guilt-trip. The book did keep my interest though, and I wanted to see it through to the end. For this reason I feel that 3 stars are warranted. I usually enjoy Tess Gerritsen's work more than I did this book.

This is an excellent medical suspense thriller, which really kept me gripped. I tend to listen to audiobooks in bed (too lazy to turn pages whilst I'm trying to doze off) and in this case that was something of a miscalculation because my sub-conscious had obviously worked out something of the plot, which then got into my dreams, and I woke up (coincidentally with a blocked nose... but I don't want to give too much away) yelling in panic! So, in my humble opinion, well worth a listen, but perhaps not late at night unless you want to wake the whole street.

ELWIN WAS AN EVOLUTIONARY DEAD END
I have finally figured it out. Tess Gerritsen has been reincarnated several times and she remembers all her former lives. It is the only way she could know what it is like to be a teenage boy, girl, old man, old woman, middle aged, in love, not loved, etc... She gets all these emotions perfect. In most of her books I always feel a connection to her. She is one of my favorites and this is one of my favorites.
THE CHILDREN WERE IN THE ATTIC
Had this been written today, instead of the 90's this would probably be a Zombie book. It has a lot of the elements that make a good Zombie story. Parts are scary, parts are gory, parts are science weird and it is mostly suspenseful. This is early Tess, when she wrote mostly on the edge and her writing was closer to Koontz and King. This is before she became famous with Rizzoli. Her writing today is a lot tamer and aimed more at the gentler gender.
BETTER A WITCH THAN A VEGETARIAN
TG is famous for her young doctors who get into trouble for doing the right thing and going against the establishment. This is no different. If you have ever found yourself having to take an unpopular stand, you will appreciate the main character and how well TG makes you feel what the character is going through. Some of the side stories are cute, such as Elwin and the Witch. The story also has lots of twists and some science. I loved it.
He is perfect.

I have just become a fan of T. Gerritsen and this story had me shakning my head at times trying to figure out what was going on. Keep with it and it all comes together.
