The Sinner - Rizzoli & Isles, Bk 3
Author: Tess Gerritsen
Not even the icy temperatures of a typical New England winter can match the bone-chilling scene of carnage discovered at the chapel of Our Lady of Divine Light. Within the cloistered convent lie two nuns -?one dead, one critically injured- victims of an unspeakably savage attacker. The brutal crime appears to be without motive, but medical exami...  more »

The Sinner is a tight, believable, well-crafted tale. While the seasoned Gerristen fan will catch on to who's who and what's really going on about halfway through, it keeps your interest and all comes together nicely in the end. The character of Rizzoli softens a bit in this novel and we learn more about Maura Isles' past. Recommended.

I wasn't aware this was part of a series when I began this novel. I still loved every page, never got lost. I'm going back to read the ones that came first. Tess Gerritsen is a master at suspence and anticipation..

This is your typical fast-paced, complex story from Ms. Gerritsen. Fans won't be disappointed in its history of Maura Iles and her mysterious ex-husband. The story wove its way through several settings and ended up in a place I didn't think it would; but that's good because I like surprises. Oddly, the title character figures into the story in a different way than you would think. Recommended for thriller fans and fans of the always-entertaining Tess Gerritsen.

A Richly textured thriller with a dark core of mass murder and affairs of the heart. Dark emotions and dangerous secrets permeate this unusually chilling novel.

A fast-paced, suspenseful plot, beginning with the brutal murder of a young nun and ending with a personal betrayal. Good book to curl up with before the fire, but don't expect to sleep until you've turned that last page!

If you like difficult to solve, twist and turn murder mysteries, this is for you! Tess G. does a great job in this book of building the story. If you have read Rizzoli and Isles before this, it is excellent in getting deeper into their lives as well. Enjoy the book when you get it. Tough to put down.

Medical Examiner Maura Isles is called to a cloistered convent. A brutal attack has left one nun dead and another critically injured. The brutal crime appears to be without motive. But the autopsy of Sister Camille shows that she gave birth shortly before she was murdered.

Great mystery. I certainly didn't figure out whodunit or the link between the murders. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

This was a good mystery featuring detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles. I liked how they teamed together to solve the murders as well as learning more about their personal lives.
