I had heard a lot about Tess Gerritsen, but I had never read anything written by her before I read 'Harvest / Life Support'. It was also the first time I read a 'medical thriller', a genre which made me curious.

First Harvest. Abby gets a job by a very important transplantteam but she fell into disstatisfaction by the others when she decides to give a new heart to an uninsured boy instead of an insured woman. Then suddenly there is a new heart available for the woman. But, who's heart is it and how did it come in the hospital?

I thought the idea was quite interesting, but it took me a long time to finish the book. I can't really say what the problem was, and I liked the way she wrote the story, but somehow there was something that stopped me from reading. Right now I'm planning to read 'Bloodstream' very soon, so I hope I will read the one faster.

Last but definitely not least Life Support. A group of old men gets a strange disease and no one knows how they got this disease. It happens to be that all of them entered in a project with life prolonging hormones. It seems like there is something wrong with the experiment?

The writing style of this book is the same as Harvest, but somehow I thought this book to be more readable. At least I read this book much faster than I read Harvest and I actually thought that this story was more interesting. But that, of course, is a matter of opinion. As I said, I'm planning to read more of her books soon. ( )
