Tess Gerritsen (San Diego, CA, 1953) es una reconocida novelista estadounidense de origen chino. Licenciada en Antropología por la Universidad de Stanford y en Medicina por la Universidad de California en San Francisco, Gerritsen siempre deseó dedicarse a la literatura, pero, siguiendo los consejos de su familia, optó finalmente por ejercer la medicina y relegar la escritura a un segundo plano. Durante una baja por maternidad, escribió su primer relato y lo presentó a un concurso literario en Honolulu (Hawái), ganando el primer premio e iniciando una prolífica carrera que pronto la catapultó al éxito internacional. Sus primeras novelas de suspense, de género romántico (1987-1996), dieron paso a thri-llers de temática médica (1996-1999), un área que conoce a la perfección. En 2001, con The surgeon, Gerritsen inauguró la serie de Rizzoli y Isles, que cuenta con superventas como Body double (2004), Vanish (2005, Nero Award) y Ice cold (2010). También ha participado en guiones para la televisión, como el telefilm Adrift, premiado en 1993 por la cadena norteamericana CBS.
