About the Author


Author Picture

Tess Gerritsen

Tess Gerritsen went to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, and worked as a physician in Honolulu, Hawaii.

She began to write fiction. On a whim, she submitted a literary short story to HONOLULU MAGAZINE's statewide fiction contest -- and won first place!

In 1987, Tess's first novel was published. CALL AFTER MIDNIGHT, a romantic thriller, was soon followed by eight more romantic suspense novels.

It was a chance dinner conversation that inspired Tess to write her first medical thriller. The man sitting beside her at the restaurant was an ex-cop. On his last trip abroad, Moscow cops had told him that Russian orphans were vanishing from the streets. They believed the children were being kidnaped by the Russian mafia and shipped abroad as organ donors.

They became the inspiration for the plot of her first medical thriller, HARVEST.

Now retired from medicine, Tess writes full time. She and her family live in Maine. In her free time she enjoys gardening and playing the fiddle.

Synopsis of this title

He Hides. When an ancient mummy is discovered in the basement of a museum in down-town Boston, excitement starts to mount. Under the glare of a media frenzy, the mummy is taken to hospital for a CT scan. Forensic pathologist Maura Isles is also invited to attend. He Kills. As the CT scan proceeds everyone in the room leans in - and gasps in horror as an image of a bullet is revealed. Maura declares it a possible homicide, and calls in detective Jane Rizzoli. He Keeps. When the preserved body of a second victim is found, and then a third, it becomes clear that taking their lives is not enough for this terrifying killer. And that unless Maura and Jane can find and stop him, he will soon be adding yet another chilling piece to his monstrous collection.

Reviews of this title


'Tess is at the classiest end of crime writing. On reading you know that you are in the hands of a master.'
--Boyd Hilton, The Simon Mayo Programme, BBC Radio 5 Live
