Tess Gerritsen writes consistently good books. However, for me, the kind of good they are varies depending upon the era they come from. Never Say Die and Whistleblower both fall into her romantic thriller category, which is my least favourite category for her work. Don’t get me wrong, they’re both great books, but there is far too much of a romantic focus (as the category title would suggest).

If you’re a fan of all of Geritsen’s work – by that I mean you have read her nineties stuff and not just

I so enjoyed reading the "The Bone Garden", I attempted another book by Ms. Gerritsen from my library. This book was a bad choice. I enjoyed "Never Say Die" ever so slightly, and was just irritated consistently with "Whistleblower". NSD was about a pilot lost (presumed dead) in the Vietnam war with a daughter that goes in search of what really happened. It's quite far-fetched, but still had a few fun twists, even though it was mostly predictable (and I'm gullible like a small child). The second ...more
Never Say Die
---Never Say Die is an interesting story of a woman’s quest for her long to be believed dead father. Full of suspense and an immediate sense of mystery, this story is a much read for anyone looking for a quick thrill. Although at some points especially at the beginning it is unclear as to exactly what is happening, by the time the reader figures it out, you are already hooked.

----Whistleblower on the other hand is the story of a company’s quest to keep a secret. Full of

These two stories are Tess Gerritsen earlier novels. I would not recommend them as she obviously is just learning how to write. Of the two WHISTLEBLOWER is the best. NEVER SAY DIE takes place in Southeast Asia, and the story is not very well put together. Plus Vietnam stories have never really appealed to me. WHISTLEBLOWER takes place in California, and is better at being put together. I read these two books because I have read all of Tess Gerritsen latest books.

I did not realize these were romance thrillers. I do not like romance novels. They are contrived, predictable and way too sappy for my taste. They are unbelievable at best. That said, I am so glad Tess Gerritsen switched to medical thrillers. Her writing is tighter, more believable, and much more interesting.

First time reading this author. Thought it was part of medical examiner series, but it was romance/mystery which I normally don't like romance novels. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed these two stories and what a quick read they were. Highly recommend for beach reads or anytime.

I really enjoyed reading earlier works of Ms. Gerritsen's and was kept wanting to find out how the stories ended. These were enjoyable reads for me as I like reading mystery, romance and thrillers and was not disappointed.

These were good books. Man gets in trouble with bad guys, ropes a girl into his dilemna, they fall in love all the while taking the bad guys down. They kept me entertained and were easy reads.

Both were ok for a quick, mindless read. The romance parts are sappy. I found myself thinking "OH, PLEASE " quite often. But sometimes you are just in the mood for one of these type of stories.
