Under the Knife is the 4th stand-alone novel by Tess Gerritsen. Dr Kate Chesne, anaesthetist, finds herself being sued for malpractice when a patient under her care dies on the operating table. To David Ransom, a lawyer specialising in medical malpractice suits, it seems to be an open-and-shut case. But when an attending nurse is murdered, and Kate is pursued after coming upon the scene, she becomes suspicious that the patient’s death was murder, and manages to eventually convince David of this. This novel is a medical murder mystery, Gerritsen’s forte, with some romance thrown in. Gerritsen gives us a plucky heroine who refuses to be silent or be a victim. While not her best work, there were a few plot twists and it was still quite a good read. ( )

I know that I read a chapter or two of this one before but the book was an interesting one. More of a romance with a thriller thrown in than a completely thriller novel it was a good read, quick too.

David Ransom is a Lawyer with a bit of a problem with incompetent Doctors. When Kate Chesne storms into his office to demand that he listen to her side of the story he starts to question her guilt. As the bodies mount they start to wonder when she will be next. In order to save her life they have to work together and find out the who and why of the murders. ( )

Book description
Het gebeurt niet elke dag dat er een collega op de operatietafel ligt, dus is anesthesist Kate Chesne onwillekeurig nóg zorgvuldiger dan anders. Niet dat ze zich zorgen maakt; Ellen O'Brien is jong en gezond, en de ingreep is niet gevaarlijk. Ze is dan ook verbijsterd wanneer Ellen tijdens de operatie overlijdt en zijzelf wordt beschuldigd van nalatigheid. Ze weet zeker dat ze geen fouten heeft gemaakt wat is er dan wél gebeurd?

David Ransom verdient al jaren zijn geld met het voor het gerecht slepen van artsen die medische fouten hebben gemaakt. De zaak van Kate Chesne is simpel: alle bewijs is tegen haar. Wanneer Kate hem persoonlijk probeert te overtuigen van haar onschuld, is hij dan ook niet onder de indruk.

Maar dan valt er een tweede dode, en een derde...
