The McMartin's reincarnated-WOW!!

Poor Maura. She goes to visit her dying biological mother who tells her that there's a reason she became a medical examiner. Maybe she's more like her mother the serial killer than she wants to admit. Then she gives her an ominous warning.
Meanwhile, a man convicted of various ritualistic (demonic and sexual) crimes against children is released from prison after 20 years. Rizzoli and Isles both believe he is the person committing gruesome ritualistic murders of the now adults, then the children who testified against him. But what if this case put an innocent family in prison ? What if they really didn't commit the crimes they were accused of? What if... hmmm, no spoilers here!
Tanya Eby is one of my favorite women narrators. She does an Excellent job narrating.

Holly, the evil antagonist!

Physician Tess Gerritsen started writing romance novels while on maternity leave from her job in 1987. In 1996 she began writing medical thrillers and in 2001 she released the crime thriller The Surgeon in which Jane Rizzoli appeared as a Boston police detective. The following year she released The Apprentice which added medical examiner Maura Isles to her list of protagonists; and thus the Rizzoli and Isles series, now 12 novels, was born. Then the series became a popular TV series. Along the way she has continued to release occasional standalone suspense mysteries. The 2015 standalone Playing With Fire is my favorite Tess Gerritsen novel.

This book titled I Know a Secret is her latest Rizzoli and Isles release. Detective Jane Rizzoli is in a strong marriage and has a young daughter. The issues in her personal life center around her parents and siblings. Dr. Maura Isles has major family issues, especially with he birth mother (the couple who adopted her are both dead). (Her birth father was a Mafia leader.) Isles has an unusual romantic life in that she is in a long term on and off sexual relationship with a Catholic priest. In this novel it is very much on again. The hard driving Rizzolli and the medical examiner with issues Isles are best friends. Rizzoli's detective partner is a divorced man who is very much still in a relationship with his ex-wife. I write this because all the novels in this series are at least much about the personal lives of the protagonists as the cases being solved.

The case the protagonists are working on concerns very unusual murders that mimic the deaths of some Catholic saints. The background to the case goes back to the murder of a 10 year old girl years ago and to a trial for child molestation. It's complicated, but interesting. Tanya Eby's narration is excellent.

Excellent story, narrator didn’t do it for me

As always, Tess Gerritsen creates an amazing, enthralling reading experience in her stories. Really enjoyed. This was the first I got any of her stories as an audiobook. The narrators accent really didn’t do it justice and I had trouble understanding some of the time. That said, I would listen to it again.

Not her best

I usually love tess' books but this one didnt quite do it for me. I felt the first half was a waste as things only were interesting at the second half. It doesn't really explain why or how the killer killed the two first, it was merely a book that I feel like tess has spread into two for money etc. It would have been better if the story started at the second half and actually continued to justice with holly caught and put away. There were many points when I thought this is just not up to her usual standard. I hope holly is caught. I would have rathered holly was the killer of the first two also.
