Under the Knife:

A routine operation leaves the patient, a nurse at the hospital, dead — and all signs point to doctor error. For lawyer David Ransom it’s clearly a case of malpractice. For Dr. Kate Chesne it’s a race to prove her innocence. Then another hospital worker turns up dead. As Kate starts to piece together the circumstances surrounding the deaths, it’s suddenly not only her career that she must save, but her life.

Whistleblower:

Victor Holland comes flying out of the night into the path of Catherine Weaver’s car. Horrified by his broken body, Cathy rushes him to the hospital, praying for his survival. But her nightmare had just begun. Because Victor is running for his life, and their shocking encounter has put Cathy in mortal danger. Victor has uncovered a terrifying secret-and the trail leads all the way to Washington, where powerful men will go to any lengths to silence him. Victor’s story sounds like the ravings of a mad man, but the haunted look in his eyes-and the bullet hole in his shoulder-tell a different story. As each hour brings pursuers ever closer, Cathy has to wonder, is she giving her trust to a man in danger or trusting her life to a dangerous man?

Reseña

Con este libro me llevé una sorpresa. Lo compré en formato electrónico y hasta que me puse a leerlo no me di cuenta de que eran dos en uno: Under the Knife y Whistleblower.

Under the Knife está en la línea normal de la autora: la trama de un crimen, en este caso varios, incluyendo un romance entre los protagonistas. Tiene suspense hasta el final, aunque más o menos puede llegar a sospecharse la identidad del culpable a medida que avanza la historia, y el romance, aunque intenso, no molesta demasiado para el desarrollo de la novela. Para pasar el rato.

El caso de Whistleblower es completamente diferente. No me molesté en acabarlo. Desde el principio se sabe quienes son los malos, por lo que el suspense no existe, dado que estamos seguros que las novelas de Tess Gerritsen siempre acaban bien. El desarrollo de la historia consiste en que los protagonistas (él y ella, por supuesto) están huyendo continuamente de los malos hasta que todo se resuelve satisfactoriamente, y, desde luego, se enamoran perdidamente. Ya digo que no me molesté en terminarla.
