Call After Midnight / Under the Knife – Tess Gerritsen
CALL AFTER MIDNIGHT A ringing phone in the middle of the night begins a horrific journey for newlywed Sarah Fontaine when she is given the news that her husband, Geoffrey, has been killed in a hotel fire in Berlin. Convinced that Geoffrey is still alive, she challenges special agent Nick O’Hara of the U.S. State department to prove her wrong as they crisscross Europe in a desperate search, trying to stay one heartbeat ahead of a dangerous killer and risking everything for answers that may prove fatal. UNDER THE KNIFE 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, daring 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?
