“A briskly paced, terrifically suspenseful work that steadily builds toward a tense and terrifying climax.”—People (Page-turner of the week) He slips into homes at night and walks silently into bedrooms where women lie sleeping, about to awaken to a living nightmare. The precision of his methods suggests that he is a deranged man of medicine, prompting the Boston newspapers to dub him “The Surgeon.” Led by Detectives Thomas Moore and Jane Rizzoli, the cops must consult the victim of a nearly identical crime: Two years ago, Dr. Catherine Cordell fought back and filled an attacker before he could complete his assault. Now this new killer is re-creating, with chilling accuracy, the details of Cordell’s ordeal. With every new murder he seems to be taunting her, cutting ever closer, from her hospital to her home. And neither Moore nor Rizzoli can protect Cordell from a ruthless hunter who somehow understands—and savors—the secret fears of every woman he kills. “[A] top-grade thriller . . . Sharp characters stitch your eye to the page. An all-nighter.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Creepy . . . will exert a powerful grip on readers.”—Chicago Tribune

The Surgeon -- Tess Gerritsen Book 1 of Rizzoli & Isles This is probably one of those books that I would have liked to just read and then move on without really analyzing it. Maybe give it a generic 3 Star rating. If asked, I’d say it was a good read--intriguing, well-written, brainstormed to a ...
Meine Entdeckungsreise zu neuen Krimi-Autoren, die ich noch nicht kenne, hat folgende "chirurgische" Ergebnisse zu Tage gefördert:Ein grossartiger Plot, ausgezeichnet aufgebaut, durchdacht und gut recherchiert, rasant und bis zum Schluss spannend, viele Verdächtige und eine nicht an den Haaren herbe...
