Very different for Gerritsen - more metaphysical than physical, meaning the evidence is not so much involved in the dead bodies as usual but in the live ones still walking aroung. Was a great read. If you have read the other Gerritsen books, then will see all the characters are true to form. Great relationsip between Maura and Jane as always.

This was the second book I read by Tess Gerritsen and I have to say well done. The book was intriguing from beginning to end and full of twists. I really enjoyed this book and I love her writing style. Both her books that I read were fast reads and easy to follow the story lines but still exciting and intriguing. Character developements were well written and enjoyable characters. I really look forward to reading more of her books. I recommend this author and this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery/suspense.

This is an action packed psychological novel about the analysis of evil. Following a series of grisly murders, a police detective, a medical examiner, and a strange, very wealthy group of scholars who study religious symbolism and historical data, join forces. Strong characters challenge each other's deeply held beliefs as they struggle to understand and stop the evil killer in their midst while dealing with their own personal relationships.

This book is part of the ongoing Jane Rizzoli book line. I have not read any previous Rizzoli books and felt somewhat lost when things from the past were mentioned. Although I would recommend reading previous books to understand past details this story does stand alone. Not reading previous books did not detract from this book or its story.

On Christmas morning, a young woman is murdered and dismembered. Medical Examiner Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli quickly link the murder to Psyhicatrist Joyce O'Donnell, a member of the Mephisto Club...a club that devotes itself to the analysis of evil. But when another murder occurs on the doorstep of the club, the members begin to suspect that they are the real target.

This is a dark psychological mystery which touches on satanic possession, secret societies and celibacy in the church. The plot seemed a little slow in the middle of the book. I just wanted to get through all of the mythology and historical data and learn who the murderer was. Definitely not a favorite in the series. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

Tess is an exceptional forensic writer! Details are immense and they drag you through the emotions of the character! So much so that there were points when I had to put it down because I nearly got sick.

This was a strange story, but very entertaining. Will not be re-posting it as 2 of the disc's skipped a lot. However if anyone is entertaining ideas of getting it, I would recommend it for a long ride.

I just love the Rizzoli and Isles book series. I have read them all now except for the newest, and am holding back on that one, knowing there aren't any more after it. I have a little trouble watching the series, as the characters are more evolved in the books.
