Life Support Summary

Life Support by Tess Gerritsen

Control was the word Dr Toby Harper lived by. She strove to keep her life in order, her ER in order. But no one could have been prepared for the man she admits one quiet night to the Springer Hospital. Delirious and in critical condition, he barely responds to treatment. And then he disappears without trace. The subsequent search leads Toby to a second patient with the same infection. And it reveals an unsettling twist - the infection 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: a terrifying and deadly epidemic is about to be unleashed ...

Life Support Reviews

"If you like your crime medicine strong, this will keep you gripped" * Mail on Sunday *
"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" * Chicago Tribune *
"This is crime writing at its unputdownable, nerve-tingling best." -- Harlan Coben

About 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.
