it was amazing
Read in May, 2012

There was a great deal about the Surgeon that reminded me of James Patterson’s Women’s Murder Mystery Series. I do not know if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but I can tell you that this book was more on the creepier gorier side than Patterson and for that, and the more intense writing, I think I have found a new series to follow.

Yes, I know that I am a little late to this rodeo since the book was written in in 2001, but all good things come to those that wait. Since the publishing industry only gives new writers three books to make their mark and Tess Gerritson has been around a good long time - I figured she must have something good to bring to the table and I was not disappointed.

Two years prior, Dr. Catherine Cordell fought back and beat her attacker. She does not remember the second shot that killed the man that had drugged her and had plans to incise her body organs, but she sure knows that she killed him. His body was laying there on her bedroom floor - two shots to the head.

That is until a new killer re-creates, with precise techniques, Cordell’s attack and now the Boston news media has nicknamed him The Surgeon. As the bodies pile up, no one can answer the questions - how does he know things about his victims? What inside information does he have that should terrify the women of Boston? Most importantly, why is he taunting Cordell with each murder?

Under hypnosis, Catherine recalls one very important bit of information.

Thomas Moore needs to save Catherine, he needs to find the link between the past and the present before Dr. Cordell is the final victim.

Terrifying in its possibility, this book, will stay with you for a long time.
