I just finished Life Support and Tess Gerritsen has impressed me again with her knowledge of yet another aspect of medicine; geriatrics. She is a master at making the elevated world of medicine and doctors understandable to the masses. Her ability to create new characters and bring them to life is equaled with few and bettered by none. But this one had too many things in it that I couldn't stand: graphic descriptions (too graphic) of things such as surgeries, a rape, and human genitalia; weird/unnatural science; I could go on. But I won't.

Her sophomore effort, the crime thriller Life Support, garnered wide critical and commercial success, and fully cemented her reputation as a premier writer in the thriller genre. The story follows emergency room physician Dr. Toby Harper as he attempts to contain an unstoppable virus terrorizing his quiet overnight shift at the hospital. Finding a cure is paramount, as well as finding the culprits who unleashed this horrible plague. Lauded as more mature and somehow more exciting, Life Support paved the way for more medical thrillers, finally coming to an end with Gravity.

I reallly love Tess Gerritsen's books. She writes wonderful stories that scare you to death and that are very fast paced. Aptly described as a page turner, they are very hard to put down.

Where she shines in the genre is in character development. Somewhere on the roller-coster ride story, you come to know and care about her characters.

This story is about a single, thirty-something ER doctor, who is also taking care of her vulnerable, alzeheimer's afflcited mom. The local ER is a small town type where there are ups and downs in activity, but usually on the low to mid area.

Her life takes its first turn when in one night she loses a cardiac patient to death and loses a confused elderly patient to (well no one knows). He was in the ER strapped to a bed when the cardiac patient arrived, and then he was no where to be found.

From there the pace revs up until Dr. Toby Harper is being attacked from all sides. She is being attacked at work for incompetence, and (well I won't give up the whole plot to you), leave it to say, she is even being accused of murder and the police have a warrent out for her arrest.

I will tell you that Toby is a caring and tenacious lady. She is smart and not easily thwarted when she senses that something is very very wrong. This is why she is in trouble. The forces out to get her are real, rich, well respected in the community, and will do anything to shut her up. (Sort of reminds you of Coma).

I would recommend this book for anyone intersted in a fast paced, well written medical thriller.

There are many reviews of Life Support, so I'll be brief. This is a gripping medical thriller with a clever thesis. I recommend it to readers who like the genre. However, there are a couple of plot glitches worth noting.

The author's "spoiler" introduction mentioned in other reviews was not included at the beginning of the Kindle edition (good decision). However, without some preparation, the initial events seem to be preposterous. This almost caused me to stop reading. My advice: have faith. The bizarre beginning will become somewhat more believable as you read on, although it remains a credibility weakness.

The heroine, Toby, makes an absolutely stupid decision near the end. She fails to consider her own safety in a situation that obviously poses a mortal threat. This all-too-common glitch detracts from a book that is otherwise superbly written and plotted.

When in doubt about picking up a book at the store or e-book you can't go wrong picking out one from Tess Gerritsen. This one is no exception. Main character Toby Harper is caught up in a medical mystery surrounding medical experimentation gone wrong and a cover-up that threatens her family and her life. The action spins quickly to a conclusion that reveals the plot. Good read!

The topic research Gerritsen does shines through in the way she is able to create a character as a specialist within a field. Life Support is no different in this way. It presents a plausible idea (at least plausible to anyone who isn't rich.. lol), with a couple of current issues many of us face in our aging families. Add another smart woman running around trying to save everyone while tentatively falling in love and you've got a story that keeps the pages turning well into the night :)
I also must add that what I enjoy most about every Gerritsen book I read is the story within the story. A young woman-child makes some bad decisions early in life and finds herself in a nightmare. You can't help but hold your breath for her as well.

LOVE Tess' books! They are fabulous medical murder mysteries - fairly graphic and very knowledgeable in regards to descriptions. There is only a little "love"... mostly kissing and sleeping together but no graphic details so not out of place & does not deter from the main novel; just adds beautifully to it!

This book was phenomenal. Tess is one of my favorite authors. Her book Harvest was the first time I read anything from her and now whenever I see her name it’s a must buy! This book was delicious to read.

Tess Gerritsen does a fantastic job developing the characters in this book. Tess was able to weave the main characters together although their place in life were so vastly different.

This was a book that I could not put down.
Good characters, plot, and enough twists to hold interest throughout the book. Gore and violence in some spots, steady, but always had my interest. The author's medical knowledge shows in her writing and it is authentic. The ending seemed sudden and "chopped off."
