Book: Harvest - Tess Gerritsen

Blurb: Dr Abby DiMatteo - a second-year surgical student in Boston Bayside's elite cardiac team - is about to make a decision that will jeopardize her career. A car-crash victim's healthy heart is ready to be harvested, having been cross-matched to a private patient, forty-six year-old Nina Voss. Instead, Abby makes sure the transplant goes to a dying seventeen-year-old boy who is also a perfect match. The repercussions leave her plagued with self-doubt. Suddenly, a new heart appears, and the transplant is completed - and Abby makes a terrible discovery. The new heart has not come through the right channels. Defying the hospital's demands for silence, Abby begins her own investigation that reveals an intricate and murderous chain of deceptions...

Rating: ****

Review: Another brilliant book by one of my favourite authors. Gerritsen draws you in from the first page and keeps you gripped until you finish. A definate page-turner which I nearly solved. The ending was a bit of a let-down but overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
