NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Rizzoli & Isles now a series on TNT In the murky shadows of Boston’s Chinatown lies a severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed in black, her head nearly decapitated. Two strands of silver hair—not human—cling to her body. They are homicide cop Jane Rizzoli’s only clues, but they’re enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make the startling discovery: that this violent death had a chilling prequel. Nineteen years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead. One woman connected to that massacre is still alive—a mysterious martial arts master who is now the target of someone, or something, deeply and relentlessly evil. Cracking a crime with bone-chilling echoes of an ancient Chinese legend, Rizzoli and Isles must outwit an unseen enemy with centuries of cunning—and a swift, avenging blade.Don’t miss Tess Gerritsen’s short story “Freaks” in the back of the book.

So, I finished this a few days ago but I wanted to give it time to soak in before I commented it on it. All in all, I liked this book. In fact, this has quickly become a favorite author of mine, and to have that happen with one book, especially me, is kind of shocking. I usually try to give it tw...
As always, Gerritsen writes a fast paced and intriguing story. This book kept me entertained throughout. The villain was obvious but of course, there was a spin, that was not. This book was more Jane focused as the last book was more Maura focused. These books are an entertaining read and keep my in...
The attempt to graft Chinese mythology and involve Chinatown felt strained and clumsy and definitely stilted.
