Hi, I read my first Tess Gerritsen book in July 2006 (Life Support) and was instantly in love with Ms Gerritsen's style of writing and the whole medical, crime, detective, thriller genre. My guide intends to give you a brief insight into each book. Hope you enjoy and most of all I hope it is helpful. Thanks, Sarah.

One of my favourite books from this author.

The Apprentice - The sequel from The Surgeon. Rizzoli investigates a copycat killer of the surgeon...surely there can't be someone else like Warren Hoyt?

Peggy Sue Got Murdered - Junkies on the streets dying, corpses turning up at the ME's office with evidence taht a new drugs on the street. Where's it come from and why is someone trying to stop the truth being exposed. Don't like the title but pleasantly surprised by this book.
The Mephisto Club - After brutal satanic like sacrifices occurr its down to cop Jane Rizzoli and Dr Maura Isles to catch the person behind them, where do the so called Meophisto Club fit in and why do they know so much about evil and the information surrounding the crimes.
