Jane Rizzoli, detective della polizia di Boston, pensa di aver vinto la sua battaglia più difficile: il serial killer soprannominato "il Chirurgo" è in prigione e non potrà più nuocere. Ma si sbaglia. Viene, infatti, convocata per investigare su una nuova serie di orribili delitti. Le vittime sono sempre due, di solito una giovane coppia, massacrata seguendo un unico, macabro rituale. Gli indizi avvicinerebbero la tecnica del nuovo maniaco a quella del Chirurgo. Ma come è possibile se questi è in prigione? Forse un mitomane che imita le gesta del suo folle modello? Forse dietro tutto c'è un segreto ancora più orribile, una verità che l'FBI vuol nascondere a tutti i costi...

Man, I love this series! I think I kinda wrote these books off as light and fluffy, because of the tv show. I've only watched a couple episodes but my mom loved it. The show Rizzoli & Isles was light and a little funny, think of a show like Bones or Castle. I love Bones but its not dark or heavy hit Leggi tutto

Update from Reread 5/1 : My original rating and comments stand. Just as good the second time around.

When she's called to a Leggi tutto

These books are SO good. Well, this is only the second book that I have read in the series but they are so good! This one wasn't as good as book one, I think the story was the reason why, but I did give book one 4.5 stars so its not that much of a step down. If all crime novels were like this, I wou Leggi tutto
I read this one while traveling - it was a perfect plane read! Totally gripping and chilling. I wouldn't have thought I'd be a fan of medical thrillers, but I really enjoy Gerritsen's writing - it's addictive and fascinating, with lots of detailed medical references that make the story that much mor Leggi tutto
Other than a two week break between the first half and second half, this mystery was a page turner!! New characters and a new psychopath with ties to the last book. Jane Rizzoli may not be the easiest chick to like but she rocks girl power and demands respect. Not only is she underestimated by the c Leggi tutto
