Mystery-suspense-thriller writer, Faith Mortimer is delighted to add book three to the best-selling Diana Rivers mystery thriller series. This latest novel, “The Surgeon’s Blade” is chilling, tense and is described as a ‘real corker of a read and probably the best in the series’.

When nursing sister, Libby Hunter wakes up in hospital following a traumatic sailing accident she discovers two deeply disturbing things. One – she has lost her memory and two – the stranger, (Nigel) whom she finds sitting by her bedside when she awakens claims to be her fiancé!

During her hospital stay, Libby regains most of her memory, except the bizarre fact is she cannot remember EVER being engaged to surgeon, Nigel. Against her will Nigel persuades Libby into agreeing to move in with him. Working on instinct she finds every excuses to put him off until she is completely sure of her true feelings.

During a series of attacks on nurses in London and Southampton, Libby finds herself in great danger when her home is broken into one night. Who is the intruder and does he plan on harming her? And is this connected in any way to the recent attacks on nursing staff. Will Libby be the attacker’s latest targeted victim?

Distressed Libby turns to pilot, Robert for help and understanding, but is he as respectable and kind as he appears to be? Is her so-called fiancé, Nigel trustworthy, especially when his ex-wife, Stella enters the scene and Libby suspects them of rekindling their relationship?

The night time intrusion to Libby’s house sets in motion a downwards spiral of cataclysmic and terrifying events, culminating in our favourite sleuth, Diana Rivers stepping in to help solve the case in this chilling mystery thriller.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I have said this twice before when reviewing Faith’s books, and I will say it again, because the compliment is warranted all the more. There is no doubt that Faith is well on the way to becoming the 21st century Agatha Christie. This is the third of Faith’s books I have read and all I can say is, well done, very well done once again, Faith. Next please!


This is a very pleasant read. Cool descriptions so you are really inside the scenes, and you can smell the food. It is a great way to spend the afternoon or evening. The characters are complex and interesting. This book is a page turner.


Excellent writing. Taut, tense and exciting. I can certainly recommend this mystery thriller.


Nurses, doctors and stalkers – all good ingredients for a psychological drama. A fantastic read. I look forward to reading Faith Mortimer’s next book.
