Do you like Criminal Minds? If so, I'd bet you'll enjoy this book. Relatively fast-paced with a twisty plot and some fun insights into the criminal's psyche with a touch of history (which you know I love!). Unfortunately, the characterization of Rizzoli and the sweeping epilogue took this book from a great read to a fine one for me. I understand why stereotypes are useful, but for heavens' sake it a character shouldn't be composed entirely by stereotypes. Perhaps, this is making room for future developments with Rizzoli in the series, but it contrasts with how thoughtfully the author handles sexual assault.

The epilogue completely washes over any element of character development for the other main characters, one that I was looking forward to in the series. Hopefully, the next book will address these concerns at least in part. ( )

The man she shot to death is back stalking her. Catherine Cordell, a surgeon in Boston lives her days on her feet as she attends to one trauma patient after another. In the face of wounds and bodily damage, she plays like a star performer, fixing people, bringing them back from the edge of death.

But behind this calm and composed woman is a haunting past. A past in which a serial killer, known to torture, mutilate and kill women, had terrorized Catherine, before being shot to death by her. Now, two years later, he seems to have come back from the dead. He is killing other women in exactly the same way but his main prize appears to be Cordell.

Detectives Jane Rizzoli and Thomas Moore of the Boston Police Department are on the hunt for this killer who has wrecked havoc in their city. But with Moore getting involved with Catherine and Rizzoli acting as the stung victim of jealousy, can the two remain objective?

An interesting, quick mystery read. While the climax isn’t exactly didn’t-see-it-coming or unexpected, it still makes for a good suspense title. Recommended to fans of the genre. ( )

Very good but gory (as is usual from Gerritsen) story about a serial killer pursuing a doctor who had been raped and almost killed several years ago by a similar killer.

This was SUCH a good read! The episodes of violence and/or sexual content were brief and pertinent to the story (although "brief" and "pertinent" are pretty subjective, so others may disagree). This is the kind of book that found me totally absorbed with the characters and the action; saying things like, "No! Don't go there!!" and "C'mon! You know better than that!" I'm hoping that I'm not the only one who "converses" with the characters in a book. I experienced all of the ups and downs of the investigation right along with Jane Rizzoli. I'm now reading the next in the series, "The Apprentice" and it is just as compelling. I plan to read the whole series. NOTE: If you watch the TV series, you will see that there are some differences, such as the physical description of Rizzoli and of Isles, as well as some differences in other characters. I just don't find this distracting. ( )

I enjoy the Rizzoli and Isles TV show, so I picked up this book thinking it would have a similar feel to the showI’ve been watching. It didn’t. Not at all! Rizzoli and Isles (the show) is light and a little fluffy… I call each episode a mini forensic chick flick, and I suppose I was expecting forensic chick lit from the novel. Instead I got a serious, intense crime thriller. Which was fabulous, but not at all what I expected. I was also very surprised to see there was no mention of Dr. Isles at all. She wasn’t a character in this novel, and for a series called “Rizzoli and Isles”, it really surprised me that she doesn’t even warrant a mention. Those are minor quibbles, though. I really enjoyed Gerritsen’s writing style, and the book hooked me from the beginning and kept me engaged until the last page. I’ll definitely be reading the next in this series. ( )

No matter how much you try to maintain order in your life, no matter how careful you are to guard against mistakes, against imperfections, there is always some smudge, some flaw, lurking out of sight. Waiting to surprise you.
Rape is a subject too intimate, too shameful, to talk about. Even with someone who cares about you.
