I’ve read/listened to quite a few of the author’s books featuring pathologist Maura Isles and detective Jane Rizzoli. They’re all pacy stories that keep one interested and are worth listening to, though I wish that detective fiction writers wouldn’t have the main characters being attacked in so many of their books, including this one. if one likes this genre you accept the crimes are contrived and often preposterous but I felt this book was a bit over the top particularly the ending.
The book doesn’t dwell too much on the grisly details of the crimes unlike some authors who verge on the voyeuristic, but she does describe post mortems which some may find distasteful.
I chose this book partly because it is narrated with panache by Lorelei King: one of the best in the business.

I love this book - an excellent instalment in the Rizzoli & Izles series - and have listened so many times. I won't go into story details (I hate spoilers!) but we find out a LOT about Maura's birth family in the course of the book, not much of it good. And a highly pregnant Jane Rizzoli throws herself into solving the multiple murders uncovered in the course of her investigations.
I highly recommend this book for all R&I fans (who won't recognise it from the tv show), as well as other crime and murder-mystery lovers. And if you like this story, you'll like the whole series!

Great story. Great performance. Heart racing thriller mystery by Tess Gerritsen. Got me really hooked
I started this book a big fan of Gerritsen and that continues. The book started out promising however there was a point I couldn't get past, listened to again and again and found myself wondering where it could possibly go. I was glad I made it through because it took me on a journey that I loved.
