In April came the rains. In August came the heat. In November came the horror. It's paying a return visit.

The small resort of Tranquillity, Maine, seems like the perfect spot for Dr Claire Elliot to shelter her adolescent son, Noah, from the temptations of the big city and the traumatic memory of his father's death. Claire's hopeful that she can earn the trust of the town as she builds a new practice. But all her plans unravel with the onset of winter, when an outbreak of teenage violence, far more deadly than anything she has encountered in the city, erupts in the local school.

In trying to find a medical explanation for this murderous epidemic, Claire stumbles upon an insidious evil which has blighted the town's past and threatens its future. Terrified that Noah too is at risk, she must prove her theory before everything she loves is destroyed.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for The Surgeon:
'If you like your crime medicine strong, this will keep you gripped' Mail on Sunday

'Authentic, convincing' Sunday Times

Praise for The Apprentice:
'Goes head-to-head with Nicci French and Karin Slaughter to scare the pants off you... A classic page-turner, full of melodrama' Daily Mirror

'Compulsive' Irish Times

Praise for Gerritsen:
'Tess Gerritsen is an automatic must-read in my house. If you've never read Gerritsen, figure in the price of electricity when you buy your first novel by her 'cause baby, you are going to be up all night. She is better than Palmer, better than Cook... Yes, even better than Crichton' Stephen King

“Good read.”

Another example of Gerritsen's earlier work. This is much better than 'Never Say Die' and equally as good as 'Harvest,' my personal favourite of her pre 'The Surgeon' days.

Although unlike her other books, this one still rings true to the Gerritsen style. She gets it spot on every time.
Bloodstrem is full of twists and turns and even the odd romance.
