Thanks Gerald, the rmance part of her site was the only place I did not look. I have to say, :) I am validating this book, but I don't like it much. It ain't my style. She does far better with the medical thrillers she writes, but hey, if someone enjoys it, then it's all worthwhile!

I am trying to figure out if a book that has been bouncing on and off the step1 page for two months is truly by the author it says it's by. It's been returned many times because of time expiring and since it's supposedly by a favorite author of mine, I'd like to either accept it or reject it once and for all. With that said: The book is Never Say die supposedly by Tess Gerritsen. The file says it's published by Mira Books which I believe is in Canada, hence maybe there's no US copyright. I can't find this title by Tess Gerritsen on the US copyright site at all. She also does not have it listed on her web site, www.tessgerritsen.com either. According to the file, the ISBN is: 1-55166-176-4 From the file again: Copyright © 1992 by Terry Gerritsen Okay now I saw one item by a Terry Gerritsen on the US copyright site, but since this was before I got the book, I did not research Terry Gerritsen. However on the page before this Copyright © 1992 by Terry Gerritsen the book reads: Coming soon from MIRA Books and TESS GERRITSEN PRESUMED GUILTY So now I am horrifically confused. Are Terry and Tess Gerritsen the same people? I don't buy it, since Tess writes medical thrillers and this book is not a medical thriller at all according to the short synapsis. Also, while you can't carve this observation in stone, Terry is a male spelling. I am going back to the US copyright site to research Terry, but in the meantime, where is a good place to go to search on ISBN numbers? If I can't find a satisfactory answer to the Terry/Tess dellemma, I am tempted to reject it with a long winded comment to our beloved administrator. And before you ask, there is no submitter info so I can't ask there. Can anybody offer me any guidance please. Thank you, Shannon Reece shazza@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx School days can be the happiest days of your life -- if your kids are old enough to attend.
