Boston, pochi giorni a Natale. La città è imbiancata dalla neve, serrata dal gelo in attesa delle festività. Maura Isles, patologa della polizia metropolitana soprannominata la «Regina dei Morti», viene convocata dal detective Jane Rizzoli a ora tarda, nella cappella del convento di Nostra Signora della Divina Luce. A terra giacciono due corpi massacrati: la novizia Camille e l'anziana suor Ursula. Per la giovane non c'è nulla da fare, ma sorella Ursula viene trasportata d'urgenza in ospedale. Forse, se riprende conoscenza, potrà fornire qualche indizio...

It all starts with the murder of a nun within her abbey along with the assault on another. As Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles investigate, it leads them toward some highly surprising and divergent paths, including connections to other circumstances. This is the book where we learn more about Maura Isle Leggi tutto
3.5 Stars. (Review contains slight spoilers for books 1 and 2 of the series). Honestly, I didn't enjoy this as much as book 1 & 2. It was different to the others because instead of heavily relying on the surgeon (and the apprentice), it focused on Rizzoli & Isles solving a few cases and dealing with Leggi tutto
“Bless me, Father, for I have sinned.” No one comes out and says those words in Tess Gerritsen’s The Sinner . This is the third suspense novel in her Rizzoli and Isles series, and I confess, it’s a practically a sin that I haven’t gotten around to reading this book until now. It’s been three years si Leggi tutto
Another well-written entry in Gerritsen’s Rizzoli and Isles series... even though this is really the first time we get a chance to meet the ultra professional ME Maura Isles, I finally understand what folks like about their match up. And even if the mystery was actually a bit cliched (I won’t give i Leggi tutto
The third book in the Rizzoli & Isles series and we get to know the characters better. Especially Maura Isles who until this book seemed to have more of a supporting role.

Even though I have already read and reviewed The Surgeon and The Apprentice, Tess' previous books in the series, I still feel that it's such a perkiness of mine to review any book written by this genious (I emphasize: genious!).

Tess Gerritsen Fans Group Link - my second read In Boston's snow filled December, Reverend Mother Mary Clement of Our Lady of Divine Light, needs help: (1) Sister Ursula Rowland(68) - beaten into "comatose", a trained nurse back after a India mass slaughter in a abandoned Octogon Chemical plant. (2
If you haven't noticed, I'm obsessed with this series. Despite how different the books are from the tv show, reading them really makes me want to binge watch the show ( I need to see if its streaming anywhere). The Sinner is about the death of a 20 year old nun and the nearly fatal assault of an eld Leggi tutto
A complex case for Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles with some red herrings thrown in. The case kicks off in with the violent assault of two nuns in a convent, leaving one dead and one grievously injured. One has recently returned from India and one is new to the order and has a shameful secret - but is
The Sinner is a macabre thriller. If you have a vivid imagination, this book will probably gross you out in parts. Besides, "the case" Rizzoli and Isles have some personal dilemmas to face. This is perhaps the best book of this series I have read so far. This is a well written murder mystery featurin Leggi tutto
