A una prima occhiata sembra un college come tanti, forse solo un po' più esclusivo degli altri. Immerso negli splendidi boschi del Maine, ha un immenso parco, lunghi corridoi, aule luminose, laboratori attrezzati. Ma a fare la differenza, a Evensong, sono gli alunni. Qui, infatti, vengono accolti ragazzi che hanno subito gravi traumi, che devono tornare a vivere, dopo che la morte li ha sfiorati troppo da vicino. Il posto giusto per Teddy Clock: ha solo quattordici anni, ma è già sopravvissuto a due spaventosi massacri. Due anni prima la sua famiglia d'origine è stata sterminata; da poco, una misteriosa e spietata mano omicida gli ha strappato anche i genitori adottivi... Ma per Teddy non sembra esistere un posto sicuro e la morte varca anche l'altro cancello del college…

Finished Arquette's "Hail Damage", I decided to give this novel a go. Good characters with interesting interplay. Gripping International Thriller. Captivating, fast pace. The method used to deliver unthought of technology to wage battle is extremely clever and will keep you riveted.
4* This is book 10 in the Rizzoli series and I recommend that you read them in order. You should also be prepared for differences between the books and the tv series. My wife and I like both. Most of Gerritsen's books tend to be a bit creepy, but this one is super creepy. A murder takes place in Bost Leggi tutto
Claire Ward, Will Yablonski and Teddy Clock all have something in common. The three teens share a traumatic past where they not only survived attacks on their families but on the families who subsequently took them in after the deaths of their parents. Now, they’re all at Evensong, the school locate Leggi tutto
One of my favorite of the series. I liked the new characters in this plot and Rizzoli and Isles were in top form...it was a difficult book to put down. Of course, part of my enjoyment was that Detective Darren Crowe had to eat crow. A little comeuppance for certain characters is always nice to see.
Gerritsen nails it again with another tautly written Rizzoli and Isles installment. A multi-layered book with a lot of changes in narration, but for me that just ratcheted up the tension. A total page turner!! In addition to our two super cool heroines, there were some great featured characters and sh Leggi tutto
Last to Die is another excellent entry in the Rizzoli & Isles series. Tess Gerritsen doesn't disappoint! She will keep the reader turning the pages trying to figure out, along with Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles, what is happening and then at the end throws a Leggi tutto
For fourteen-year-old Teddy Clock, death has struck twice. When he was twelve, his family was murdered; Teddy somehow survived but does not remember anything about the incident. Now, two years later, when his foster family is slaughtered, Boston detective Jane Rizzoli takes him under her wing. Not w Leggi tutto
Why would someone kill the families of three different children then slaughter the families that adopted them? That’s the basic premise of Last To Die and it’s a good one. Unfortunately, Gerritsen doesn’t deliver what could have been a great book. On the plus side, she didn’t give us another serial k Leggi tutto
Hmm hat mich leider nicht gepackt.
Simply delicious to the last drop! Tess Gerritsen always delivers a great read, but Last to Die is an especially tasty treat. Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles are at their best in this blood chilling tale about three teens who have each survived two massacres involving their families and their foster fa Leggi tutto
