Book Description

April 2007 Center Point Premier Romance (Large Print)
Guilty—Until Proven Innocent…

Miranda Wood thinks she has seen the last of Richard Tremain, her rich and married ex-lover—until she discovers him stabbed to death in her bed. With her knife.

Miranda is the obvious suspect, and she looks even guiltier when her bail is posted by an anonymous donor. Was this an act of kindness designed to buy her time to clear her name? Or is someone trying to manipulate Miranda and draw her into the dark and secret world of a murdered man, where everybody's presumed guilty?

With her world falling around her, Miranda is determined to discover who killed Richard. But proving her innocence may become secondary to staying alive.…

3.0 out of 5 stars not close to her best Dec 11 2013

Gerritsen is one of my favourite authors, but this clearly is not one of her better books. Readable but compared to others a letdown.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you know this author, you will love this! May 14 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Until I read this book I had only read a couple from the Rizzoli and Isles series by this author. This one is a bit more on the romance type of side, but I really did enjoy it. I couldn't figure it out right away so it kept my attention.

I love mysteries mostly, and I don't always get into the lovey dovey woman in distress ones, but this one is different in my opinion. I really wanted it to be longer. I felt like I got connected to the characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm sorry, but... July 15 2001
By CT - Published on
The thing is, I picked up this book after throughoutfully enjoying Gerritsen's medical thrillers (I figured they'd feature the same gripping story-telling) but what I found was a lukewarm novel, filled with two-dimensional characters and a terribly boring plot. The ending was nice, but it wasn't enough to save this book.
So... If you read Gerritsen's medical thrillers (Bloodstream, Harvest, etc...) don't expect the same kind of plot, characters or narration in here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amazon info did not indicate this was a 15 year old book March 31 2012
By LB - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered the hardcover edition of this book. The Amazon page did not indicate that this was originally published by another company 15 years before. I thought I was getting a new novel by Tess Gerritsen.

I was almost glad to read that it was so old as I could not believe that Tess Gerritsen had really written this drivel. Obviously she was at the start of her writing career when she wrote this. As someone else noted, this is a romance with a slight mystery thrown in. But, the main problem is that is very poorly written, has cardboard cut out characters and frankly, a stupid plot line.

The main character is accused of committing a crime. She did not do it, but is universally considered guilty. The woman was not even in the home when the murder took place. There could be no incriminating evidence specifically related to her (blood spatter, cloth used to clean blood from the knife, blood on her clothing, etc) yet she is charged with the crime. So honestly from the first few poorly written pages of the plot, there was not much hope of this turning out to be a sharp, interesting story.

A male character is trying to find the identity of a suspect. He has no legal or police authority, he is just a relative of the murdered man. He calls newspapers around the country to find out if a specific person was formerly employed there. All of newsrooms he calls tell him Yes or No without any further questioning of him or why he is asking. He then decides the suspect must have changed her name and calls her Grad School. He asks the Grad School office to search for people who graduated in a specific year with the first name "Jill". Yep, again they supposedly do this research for him with no questions asked. The whole plot was just too dumb and amateurish to be believable on any level.

The money spent for this book was truly wasted. I feel that with the popularity of Rizzoli and Isles novels, either Tess or her agent or publisher thought they could reissue this and earn some extra money as folks like me would buy it thinking it was a newly published work. Shame on me for not checking more carefully....

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best, but.... July 15 2006
By Music lover in Omaha - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was not the best book by Tess Gerritsen I have ever read, but I must confess that I enjoyed it. It was certainly not as graphic or horrific as 'The Surgeeon' or 'The Apprentice', but it kept my interest. This was almost more of a romance novel and could have lost me at any time, but I stayed with it and found it to be a good story. (could be a Lifetime movie)

1.0 out of 5 stars 15 years old? What?? June 1 2012
By Jennifer M. Schliem - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased the audio book, and I just noticed that the book was first released in 1993. No wonder it was so awful. I was very disappointed with the plot, the charters and the reader, Jennifer Van Dyck. I really need to read the description section more carefully on future books purchased here. It really was almost unbearable. I feel tricked by Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUSPENSEFUL BOOK! Aug. 22 2000
By Karen Boml - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Before Tess Gerritsen started writing the long medical thrillers such as Harvest, she wrote for the Harlequin Intrigue line.....these books have the same style of writing, with superb character development and storylines, but a shorter story with a touch more of romance......(just up my alley!) Miranda Wood's ex-lover was found stabbed to death in her bed....all evidence pointing towards herself, she is imprisoned. The dead man's brother, Chase Tremain, anonymously posts bail without knowing if she was the murderer or not....hoping to keep an eye on her, he has doubts about her guilt when he witnesses some attempts on her life!...that is, unless she's a good actress!! I liked the emotional roller-coaster ride..........great climax!
