Publisher Comments:

andlt;Iandgt;New York Timesandlt;/Iandgt; bestselling author Tess Gerritsen weaves authenticity into another novel of searing medical suspense, as a dedicated woman doctor probes into the cause of a mystifying and lethal outbreak. andlt;BRandgt;The quiet overnight shift at Springer Hospital ER suits Dr. Toby Harper just fine — until she admits a man in critical condition from a possible viral infection of the brain. The delirious man barely responds to treatment — and then disappears without a trace. Before Toby can find him, a second case occurs, revealing a terrifying fact: the virus can only be spread through direct tissue exchange. Following a trail of death that winds from a pregnant sixteen-year-old prostitute to her own home, Toby discovers the unthinkable: the epidemic didn't just happen — someone let it loose....

Synopsis:

The overnight ER rotation at Springer Hospital suits Dr. Toby Harper just fine — until its calm is shattered by a man Toby admits one quiet night. Delirious and in critical condition from a possible viral infection of the brain, he barely responds to treatment...and then he disappears without a trace. But before Toby can find her missing patient, a second case occurs, revealing a chilling twist: evidence of an infection that can only be spread through direct tissue exchange. Soon Toby's on a trail that winds from a pregnant sixteen-year-old prostitute to an unexpected tragedy in her own home. Only then does she discover the unthinkable: an evil, deadly design to the frightening epidemic.

Synopsis:

E.R. physician Toby Harper unravels a sinister plot involving a deadly epidemic--and finds herself wrestling with an ethical nightmare.

Rachael, October 1, 2006 (view all comments by Rachael)
This was my first and favorite Tess Gerritsen novel. If you are new to her, this is an excellent place to start. It is one of her stand-alone medical mysteries. I never was interested in a medical mystery before reading Gerritsen's books. She writes so well that it doesn't matter what it's about, you just will become so absorbed in the story. I loved this book and recommend it to anyone who is new to mysteries who wants to try a great book. Warning: There are some very scary scenes not for the faint of heart!
