Descripción

For David Ransom, it begins as an open-and-shut case. Malpractice.

As attorney for a grieving family, he's determined to hang a negligent doctor. Then Dr. Kate Chesne storms into his office, dating him to seek out the truth - that she's being framed. First, it was Kate's career that was in jeopardy. Then, when another body is discovered, David begins to believe her. Suddenly, it's much more.

Somewhere in the Honolulu hospital, a killer walks freely among patients and staff. And now David finds himself asking the same questions Kate is desperate to have answered. Who is next? And why?

A Dreamscape Media audio production.

    This is an early Gerritsen book and a short one, but still a good story even if it is improbable. Dr. Kate Chesne, an anesthesiologist, loses a patient during a routine surgery and does not know what happened. it appears that she made a careless mistake and is being sued by David Ransom, a well known attorney who things this is an open and shut case. An upset and indignant Kate (the hospital administrator has threatened to fire her and has suspended her privileges) storms into his office to inform him she did nothing wrong and is being framed. Kate resists pressure to quit her job and finds the body of another colleague after receiving a mysterious message. Then someone tries to kill her. As she and David begin to work together, they begin to have feeling toward one another. This smart protagonist leads the fight for justice amid lots of action. I was able to figure out most of the story about 2/3 of the way in, but it was still a couldn't put down story until the end.

    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.

    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.
