Life Support



No one is safe . . .
IT’S GORY, IT’S GRIPPING, IT’S GERRITSEN.

DON’T COUNT ON SEEING TOMORROW

'If you like your crime medicine strong, this will keep you gripped.' Mail on Sunday

Dr Toby Harper’s quiet night is disrupted when a severely ill man stumbles into ER. She suspects a viral brain infection. But shortly after trying to treat him, he disappears without a trace.

When a second person is admitted with the same symptoms, she starts to trace the deadly infection backwards. And begins to suspect foul play.

And that she may be on borrowed time . . .

About the author

Tess Gerritsen

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. Her thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles. But Tess’s interests span far more than medicine and crime. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena.

This is crime writing at its unputdownable, nerve-tingling best

Harlan Coben

Richly drawn hospital scenes . . . Chilling science . . . and breathless ER-style pacing . . . A quick, delightfully scary read

People

[Gerritsen] has an imagination . . . so dark and frightening that she makes Edgar Allan Poe . . . seem like goody-two-shoes
