To be honest I thought this was just an OK story. Not really that special. Started off as a promising whodunnit but the second half of the story abandoned that whole concept and made it into a fairly basic "stalker" thriller instead.

Don't get me wrong, it was well written, and I liked the characters and the bad guy. But I think it was a mistake to abandon the mystery element. The ending was a bit of a let down, but I can't give too much away by saying why. Lets just say it could have been very good, but was ultimately just OK.

The way the plot developed she could have gone for some breathtakingly good twists and turns, but instead she went for the semi-predictable and downright disappointing events instead.

I was lent the book keeping the dead which was fantastic, so decided to buy all the Maura Isles/Jane Rizzolli series, this is the first one and is brilliant, couldnt put it down, racing through them now and cant get enough!

I am not usually one for Crime novels. I usually prefer Horror's..but as soon as I started reading this book I knew that I would fall in love with it.
The surgeon is a gripping, suspense-filled novel that will leave you wanting more and more!
Each chapter leaves you on the edge of your seat and you can't put it down.
If I had the time I would have read this book all in one go!
I rarely read a book twice, but this would most certainly be one that I could read again.
Amazing!!!

My daughter loaned me this book to take in Hospital with me. However, I read it in two sittings prior to my appointment! Absolutely excellent and, as a former Stephen King/Richard Laymon fan, I am now converted!!!

A friend recommended this book, and I must say it was everything she said and more. Great characters and gripping storyline - if you love crime fiction don't miss this. Next read, The Apprentice.
