With her acclaimed novels Harvest and Life Support, Tess Gerritsen has injected a powerful dose of adrenaline into the medical thriller. Now, in a new blockbuster, Gerritsen melds page-turning suspense with chilling realism as a small-town doctor races to unravel the roots of a violent outbreak -- before it destroys everything she loves.
Lapped by he gentle waters of Locust Lake, the small resort town of Tranquility, Maine, seems like the perfect spot for Dr. Claire Elliot to shelter her adolescent son, Noah, from the distractions of the big city and the lingering memory of his father's death. But with the first snap of winter comes shocking news that puts her practise on the line: a teenage boy under her care has committed an appalling act of violence. And as Claire and all of Tranquility soon discover, it is just the start of a chain of lethal outbursts among the town's teenagers.
As the rash of disturbing behavior grows, Claire uncovers a horrifying secret: this is not the first time it has happened. Twice a century,the children of Tranquility lash out with deadly violence. Claire suspects that there is a biological cause for the epidemic, and she fears that the placid Locust Lake may conceal an insidious danger. As she races to save Tranquility -- and her son -- from harm, Claire discovers an even greater threat: a shocking conspiracy to manipulate nature, and turn innocents to slaughter.

    Loved this book, short (only 3 CD's) but it kept my attention. I was looking forward to getting back in my car to hear what happens next!

  • Nanette

    Good book. Seemed a little chopped but overall I enjoyed it.

  • Catherine Mieczkowski

    Needs to be unabridged. The story skips around and I feel like I've missed a lot. I ended up reading the book. Easy listen though.

  • Angela Jones

    Good listen I wish it would have been unabridged I feel like there was more to the plot that I missed out on.

  • William Morgan

    I really enjoyed the story but would have preferred an unabridged version. The story jerked between characters and settings without warning and it seemed some details that should have been included were left out. I don't know if this is the author's style or a result of the abridgment. Overall , however, it was still a good listen, and I can recommend it.
