Short biography
Tess Gerritsen left a successful practice as an internist to raise her children and concentrate on her writing. She gained nationwide acclaim for her first novel of suspense, the 1996 New York Times bestseller Harvest. Subsequently, she wrote three bestselling medical thrillers, Life Support (1997), Bloodstream (1998), and Gravity (1999). Her first crime thriller, The Surgeon (2001) introduced the character of homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, who then became the focus of a series of novels that paired her with medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles. The books were adapted into the television series Rizzoli & Isles.
