A fan-favorite novel by internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen

For attorney David Ransom, it begins as an open-and-shut case: malpractice. Then Dr. Kate Chesne storms into his office, daring him to seek out the truth—that she's being framed. When another patient turns up dead, David starts to believe her. Somewhere in the Honolulu hospital, a killer walks freely. And now David finds himself asking the same questions Kate is desperate to have answered.

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.
