G is for mystery writers Tess Gerritsen and Elizabeth George

Elizabeth George
There really aren't enough women writing crime fiction but there are two writers--whose work could not be more different--who have made their mark on the genre. They are Tess Gerritsen, who writes medical thrillers and created the series Rizzoli and Isles and Elizabeth George, who is an American but writes very "English" mysteries.
Elizabeth George has written a number of mysteires "starring" Inspector Lynley, and they have been turned into a BBC crime series. Her older brother Rober is also a novelist.
Tess Gerritsen was a doctor before she started writing fiction, part of a tradition of writing doctors that includes Arthur Conan Doyle, Robin Cook, Michael Crichton (he earned his degree but never practiced medicine) and James Rollins.
