Harvesting what exactly

Advantageskept me occupied

Disadvantagesnone really

"Well then my fellow ciaoers I'm afraid its time for me to launch another book review upon you. This time its the debut novel by a writer now very well regarded and reguarly tops the best seller lists.

Advantages Edge of seat book

Disadvantages terminology hard for some

"I have read all of Tess Gerritsen's books, and the jane rizzoli series is fantastic. Although this book is not part of this series, it a still an amazing read. Because of Tess' work background she makes a fantastic writer. She always keeps you on the edge of your seat and keeps you wanting more. This was a great book. The main character Dr Abby Di Mattio is a surgical student. After discovering that transplants aren't legal, she begins her own ..." Read review

Manufacturer's product description

Dr Abby DiMatteo - a second-year surgical student in Boston Bayside's elite cardiac team - is about to make a decision that will jeopardize her career. A car-crash victim's healthy heart is ready to be harvested, having been cross-matched to a private patient, forty-six year-old Nina Voss. Instead, Abby makes sure the transplant goes to a dying seventeen-year-old boy who is also a perfect match. The repercussions leave her plagued with self-doubt. Suddenly, a new heart appears, and the transplant is completed - and Abby makes a terrible discovery. The new heart has not come through the right channels. Defying the hospital's demands for silence, Abby begins her own investigation that reveals an intricate and murderous chain of deceptions... See all Product Description
