Peccavi, «ho peccato». Il messaggio in latino è tracciato, insieme a strani disegni, sulle pareti di una casa in cui una donna è stata brutalmente assassinata. Lo scenario è da messa satanica e l'unico indizio è una telefonata partita dalla scena del crimine diretta a Joyce O'Donnell, la psicologa nemica giurata di Jane Rizzoli, che segue le indagini affiancata dall'amica e anatomopatologa Maura Isles. Joyce però, quella sera, partecipava a una riunione del club Mefistofele, i cui soci si dedicano allo studio del male nelle sue varie manifestazioni, convinti che Satana esista e viva sulla Terra...

This is probably my least favorite of Rizzoli and Isles series. I suppose it is all the demon possession parts of the story. I prefer regular old fashioned sociopaths.
Ever since Maura Isles got the spotlight in this series, I've been complaining how pathetic she is when it comes to her love life. Seriously, she keeps on trying to fall in love to every attractive guy who looks at her. How come a logical and level-headed medical examiner can make such stupid moves
Homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles are called to the scene of the brutal murder of a young woman. Strange symbols and a cryptic message are clues that lead them to an even stranger group of people who are members of the Mephisto Foundation, a group of scholars who belie Leggi tutto
"You can study a face all you want, but you never really know what lies beneath the mask.” The sixth book in the Rizzoli & Isles series. I have enjoyed reading the books in this series but this is probably my least favorite. It was still an enjoyable read but it was too Dan Brown ish. Too much demons Leggi tutto
Peccavi. “I have sinned.” This Latin word, along with three upside down crosses, is found on the wall of a lurid murder scene on Christmas Eve. The Mephisto Club , Tess Gerritsen’s sixth book in her much-liked Rizzoli & Isles series, features more graphic murder scenes than several of her previou Leggi tutto
The least Christmas kind of story line for a Christmas vacation read. An unspeakable crime on Christmas Eve gets the action rolling in this Rizzoli and Isles novel. Lots of blood, victims, evil and plenty of creepy flashbacks. One of my favorites so far as there’s a mix of ancient mythology and mode Leggi tutto
The Mephisto Club is book #6 in the Rizzoli & Isles series and in my opinion its the weakest. I think book 6 was a little too inspired by Dan Brown and his books. The Mephisto Club is about demons, Satan, secret societies, and lost books of the Bible and it was just less fun then the other books in
It amazes me that Tess Gerritsen is able to write such awesome thrillers, time after time. And yet she does, proving that she is, quite simply, at the top of her game--and at the top of the psychological thriller/mystery genre! Many others have outlined the plot of THE MEPHISTO CLUB, so let me just
I really didn't like this one all that much. I was actually able to put it down and walk away from it. I was not thrilled with the character development in this one, there was really only two surprising things...

Tess Gerritsen Fans Group Link A nice read with Rizzoli & Isles, Christmas Eve is spoiled in Boston. A Latin word "Peccavi" & crosses (written upside down) are left in blood on bodies. The Latin word means "I Have Sinned". Upside down crosses are against "Chtistanity". Severed body parts f
