Not even the icy temperatures of a typical New England winter can match the bone-chilling scene of carnage discovered at the chapel of Our Lady of Divine Light. Within the cloistered convent lie two nuns–one dead, one critically injured–victims of an unspeakably savage attacker. The brutal crime appears to be without motive, but medical examiner Maura Isles’s autopsy of the dead woman yields a shocking surprise: Twenty-year-old Sister Camille gave birth before she was murdered. Then another body is found, mutilated beyond recognition. Together, Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As long-buried secrets come to light, Maura Isles finds herself drawn inexorably toward the heart of an investigation that strikes close to home–and toward a dawning revelation about the killer’s identity too shattering to consider.

I definitely liked this book better than my first foray into the series. The book starts off with a horrifying killing at a cloistered order of nuns. While gruesome, the author leaves just enough clues out there to make me want to follow the trail of the mystery. I also like how Gerritsen weaves see...
Gerritsen writes a fairly good murder/mystery until she introduces romance into it. The book then drags about the character's feelings for each other and makes me want to put the book away unfinished. I did finish it to see who the killer was but as in previous books, the ending is wrapped up quickl...
This is the third story in the Isles/Rizoli series and while interesting, it seems to have lost a certain something for me. The characters seem to have lost themselves into angst and forgotten some of the core character points. It's unusual in a series for characters to move to being more cardboar...
