Synopsis

The Sinner by Tess Gerritsen

‘I don’t think I’d like your job, Dr Isles. Why do you choose it? Why the dead over the living?’ ‘Because they deserve attention. They want us to know why they died…’

Within the walls of a cloistered convent, a scene of unspeakable carnage is discovered. On the snow lie two nuns, one dead, one critically injured – victims of a seemingly motiveless, brutally savage attack. As medical examiner Maura Isles’ autopsy of the murder victim yields a shocking surprise, the case takes a sudden and disturbing twist. The body of another woman has been found. And someone has gone to a lot of trouble to remove her face, hands and feet. As long buried secrets are revealed so Dr Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli find themselves part of an investigation that leads to an awful, dawning realization of the killer’s identity…
