What a wonderful surprise. This was the first book I have read by Tess Gerritsen and Im very pleased I did..This book was wonderfully written, the characters were believable and well written. I really enjoyed the plot and the way the whole story came together. I was sad when it came to the end. 400 some pages and I wanted more. I am excited to read more of this author. I really recommend this book for someone who enjoys a good suspense and a fast read.

The discovery of a hundred-year-old skeleton in the garden of her newly purchased home sends a contemporary woman searching through local history to uncover a tale of murder and deception. Scariest thing about this novel was the nonfiction descriptions of early 19th century obstetrical practices.

I have never read Tess Gerritsen before so I don't know if this is her normal style but this book was a back and forth of today and historical Boston. It follows a chance encounter with a skeleton back to a series of murders in early 1800's Boston. I think it was well written and skillfully done. I think Tess Gerritsen is a solid writer whom I would read again without hesitation. I did not guess the ending, which I'm usually good at, so I bet you won't either. Enjoy. It's worth the read.

My first Tess Gerritsen read and I loved it! I loved the juxtaposition of the 1830s mixed in with present day and I especially loved the medical aspect of it. So nice to learn about how medicine was practiced back before the Civil War. And the interweaving of factual events and real characters was amazing! Also the description of locality both historic and present day was refreshing and picturesque. I can't wait to read another Tess Gerritsen book!
