Review: I'm a huge follower and fan of Tess Gerritsen's work and have read all of her books. I was excited when I had the opportunity to meet her when she went to Northern California and especially when I got an autographed copy of her latest book, The Silent Girl! Let me go ahead and say that I enjoyed it.
I thought the story itself is great, and loved the fact that she used her Chinese-American background to write it. I liked the characters, as usual, and thought her writing is as good as ever. No cliches, no nonsense. It's also incredibly fast-paced, intriguing, and exciting, and has just the perfect amount of descriptions and details. The flow of the book and the overall development of the characters as well as the plot were executed very well, I thought.
While I don't think this is her best work necessarily - as I still can't get over The Surgeon and Body Double - I'm happy I can say that I still enjoyed it. It had me guessing, and kept me entertained all throughout. Tess Gerritsen definitely has the ability to capture her audience with her words, and I can't wait to read more from her hopefully soon.
