The Surgeon, by Tess Gerritsen

Another serial killer one: someone is preying on women who've been raped, carving them up with scalpels and surgical skill. And it appears he's targeting one person in particular: Dr Cordell, who was raped and nearly killed several years ago.

Even for a Gerritson book, the plot in this one felt extremely familiar, although I'd checked before picking it up from the second-hand shop that it wasn't one I'd read before. In fact, this precedes The Apprentice, and I see that when I read that I noted that I wouldn't need to read The Surgeon.

From what I can remember, and from reading my review of The Apprentice, this is pretty much the same story, with the same loony killer.

Not that great really.
