Publisher's Summary

Returning home from a trip to Paris, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles confronts a nightmarish scene. Police cruisers line her street and slumped in a car at the end of Maura's driveway is a dead woman, her head bloodied by a gunshot wound. Cops and neighbors gape at her as she approaches. Only when Maura looks at the victim does she understand why everyone is so shocked by her arrival. The dead woman looks exactly like Maura. Within a week, the DNA lab delivers a stunning verdict: the dead woman is Maura's twin. A twin she never knew she had. Detective Jane Rizzoli, now eight months pregnant, tackles the case as chief investigator. But for Maura, this murder is far more personal and frightening.

Pacy but a bit over the top

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.

Highly recommended for crime, murder-mystery & Rizzoli & Isles lovers!

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!

Lull before the storm

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.
