Description of this Electronic Book

A brilliantly compulsive page-turner from the author of The Surgeon.

Dr Emma Watson, a brilliant research physician, has been training for the mission of a lifetime: to study living organisms in space. Jack McCallum, Emma's estranged husband, has shared her dream of space travel, but a medical condition has grounded him. Now he must watch from the sidelines...
The mission aboard the space station turns into a nightmare when a culture of single-celled organisms begins to regenerate out of control - and infects the crew with agonising and deadly results. Emma struggles to contain the deadly virus, while back home Jack and NASA work against the clock to bring her home. But there will be no rescue, as the astronauts are left stranded in orbit where they are dying one by one...

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for The Surgeon: 'If you like your crime medicine strong, this will keep you gripped' Mail on Sunday
'Authentic, convincing' Sunday Times
Praise for The Apprentice: 'Goes head-to-head with Nicci French and Karin Slaughter to scare the pants off you... A classic page-turner, full of melodrama' Daily Mirror
'Compulsive' Irish Times
Praise for Gerritsen: 'Tess Gerritsen is an automatic must-read in my house. If you've never read Gerritsen, figure in the price of electricity when you buy your first novel by her 'cause baby, you are going to be up all night. She is better than Palmer, better than Cook... Yes, even better than Crichton' Stephen King
