Another decent, fast paced entry in this series. ( )

Synopsis: 'Boston medical examiner Maura Isles and police detective Jane Rizzoli look into the murder of 28-year-old Lori-Ann Tucker, whose body is found Christmas morning in her apartment amid an unholy mess of severed limbs, black candles and satanic symbols rendered in blood. "Peccavi," reads one word scrawled across Tucker's wall—Latin for "I have sinned." Isles and Rizzoli must sort sinner from innocent among suspects who can be found on several continents and include a group of sophisticates—scholars, an anthropologist, a psychiatrist—who are either cult members or crusaders against evil straight from the pages of Revelation. Other murders follow, all gruesome, all involving apocalyptic messages. On occasion, the action shifts to Europe, to a young woman running from a man she's convinced is descended from a race of fallen angels. Gerritsen has a knack for stretching believability just short of the breaking point—and for amassing details that produce an atmosphere in which the most terrible possibilities can and, indeed, should occur.'
Review: This was totally engaging. I'm hoping that this group of people make it into another novel in this series.

Another great book in the Rizzoli and Isles series. Tess Gerritsen still has it on her sixth book in. Tess is such a great writer and her plots are still fresh.

Overall I have enjoyed this series and would recommend them to anybody. ( )

I do like this series. ( )
  RobertaLea | May 30, 2019 |
I was disappointed in this book as it verged into the mystical, and both main characters seemed to be missing their usual consistency and strength. The whole book reminded me of the episode of "Happy Days" where Mork was introduced prior to spinning out "Mork and Mindy". The ending just reads like it's setting up wholly different series and genre. ( )

I like this book its the only book I've sat down and completed it pulls you from begining to end and dosen't let go I really enjoy this book. At first it seems like the characters do not trust each other but through out the story they learn to. I don't think that Tess Gerritsen could have done any better, if I had too I would read it all over again. I'll be looking for her next books.
