Not for the faint-hearted!

I first came across this author with her enjoyable Rizzoli and Maura series, which combine detective fiction with a medical slant. Harvest is a bit different in that it has a heavy dose of medical detail with graphic accounts of heart surgery, so if you're squeamish about blood and guts: be warned! A detective does come into the story in the later part of the book. It's an alarming and intriguing story about the subversion of a heart transplant team. The narrative centres on a young woman medical intern who joins the transplant team as a trainee and thereafter her nightmare begins. The story is full of surprises and, though not her best book, is certainly one that kept me listening.
The reader is excellent.

Keeps you guessing!

This is a great listen from Tess Gerritsen! The characters are well drawn and the plot will have you on the edge of your seat. Beware if you listen and drive! The plot contains some thought provoking themes regarding organ transplants and donations too. It is read clearly and thoughtfully and you are completely drawn into the story and the characters' lives.

When things aren't as they seem...

STORY (medical thriller) - Abbe is a young surgical intern with a bright future and a great guy. Everything is going perfectly until she starts to wonder about certain things going on in the operating room. The publisher's summary doesn't give much away, so I won't either. I'll just say that some of this book takes place on an ocean-going vessel, but most of it takes place in and around a Chicago hospital. Abbe has stumbled onto something that's as dangerous as it is suspicious. As she struggles to learn what's going on in the OR, she is pressured by those who want to keep things secret. Her career and her very life are at stake.

There's interesting medical situations and lots of suspense in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

PERFORMANCE - George Guidall does a very good job reading this book.

OVERALL (Actual rating 4.5) - Moderate violence and some cursing. Recommended for mature listeners(male or female) due to the subject matter.

Far Fetched

I am a big fan of medical thrillers. I love the Kay Scarpetta series. I realize that there is some suspension of disbelief necessary to enjoy this genre, but this book was so far fetched that I found myself rolling my eyes several times.

Although the narrator was not bad per se, he seemed like an akward fit for a female protagonist. I just could not reconcile the mature gentleman's voice with the 28 year female character he was trying to capture.

I was enthralled by Gerritsen's The Bone Garden, and would hope to see another historical/medical thriller like that from her in the future. Harvest just fell short of the expectations I had built up after being so impressed with The Bone Garden.
