Summary, etc.:
Abby DiMatteo, immersed in her second year as a surgical resident at Boston's Bayside Hospital, is elated when the hospital's elite cardiac transplant team taps her as a potential recruit. But soon she must make a critical decision that jeopardizes her entire career. A car crash victim's healthy heart is ready to be harvested and is conveniently cross-matched to a wealthy patient, forty-six-year-old Nina Voss. Abby and chief resident Vivian Chao hatch a bold plan to make sure that the transplant goes instead to a dying seventeen-year old boy. Then, after a new heart for Nina appears, Abby makes a terrible discovery -- Nina's heart has not come through the proper channels. Defying the hospital's demands for silence, Abby, with Dr. Chao's help, plunges into an investigation that reveals an intricate -- and murderous -- chain of deceptions. Every move she makes spawns a vicious backlash...and, in a ship anchored in the stagnant waters of Boston Harbor, a final, grisly discovery lies waiting...Compelling and provocative, Harvest is a mesmerizing tale -- and one that introduces Tess Gerritsen as a new master of first-class suspense fiction.
