Another outstanding thriller. Gerritsen writes stories so layered, they are like a puzzle box. The pieces are always shifting and revealing new theories, new aspects, and just when you think you know who the bad guy is and what the true story is, she slides the pieces and you have more questions. And even when you get to the end and the puzzle is finally together, she throws one last surprise into the mix. I love it! It keeps you on the edge and turning page after page. I can never put her books down.
In this one, Jane is the focus and she is on the case of a murdered woman on a roof. The murder is so bizarre that it opens up questions to a mass murder-suicide from 19 years ago. And so the pieces slide. We only see a small peek at Maura in this one, and an even smaller peek at "Rat", the boy who saved Maura in the previous book. I was happy to get an update on how he was doing. But this book solely focuses on Jane's case and, as usual, Jane's risk taking, puts her in mortal danger again. Jane's team is still along for the ride, and she has a new team member who has more knowledge than anyone can guess. I don't want to give too much away, so I will say this was a brilliant thriller. If you haven't read any of her books, this one can stand alone. But you should start at the beginning so you know the history of all the players.
I am not a fan of the TV series so I read this my first attempt at the Rizzoli/Isles series and was pleasantly surprised. The twists and turns were well placed and keep me reading until the wee hours. Excellent!!!
I really like this series, and this one didn't disappoint.
Excellent read. I hated to see it end. Rizzolli is one tough cop.
This was the first Gerritsen book I read and I enjoyed it so much, I've gone back to the beginning and have been reading them in proper order now.
So far I've fully enjoyed every one of Tess Gerritsen's books I've managed to get my hands on. She writes good tight mysteries which get you thinking and keeps you interested. This one is a bit eerier than others I've read, and that made it even more interesting and mysterious. I highly recommend it.
I actually read it in just one day. I seldom have that kind of time to spare, but I really didn't want to put it down unfinished. Besides, my husband was waiting to read it, so I'm glad I got finished with it promptly. So was he.
