Maxim Jakubowski's view...
A Maxim Jakubowski Great Female Crime Sleuth.
JANE RIZZOLI & MAURA ISLES - The female investigating duo of detective Rizzoli and forensic archeologist Isles is a unique and great combination and over nine books so far has established itself as a much-loved detecting pair. The hardy duo invariably encounter the grisliest of cases and are often obliged to put their very lives on the line in the exercise of duty. A spiky relationship between the two women peppers the books with sardonic flashes of wit, but the page-turning qualities of their exploits is never in doubt. Gripping stuff.
The Lovereading view...
Gory and gripping this is Tess Gerritsen's most bone-chilling story yet in our opinion. Gerritsen’s much-loved series heroines, forensic anthropologist Maura Isles and detective Jane Rizzoli are core to this nail-biting crime mystery. Gerritsen plays on the reader's fears as she dishes out her unputdownable meal of non-stop nightmare in which both Maura Isles and Jane Rizzoli are pushed well beyond where they've been pushed before.

But their nightmare has only just begun. They Disappear. Days later, Jane Rizzoli flies to Wyoming to search for her missing friend. A crashed vehicle has been found with four badly burned bodies still inside. Can one of the corpses be Maura's? Jane's hunt for the truth leads her to Kingdom Come. Where the person who was watching Maura now lies waiting for her...

ReviewsThis is possibly the most bone-chilling story featuring on-going characters Rizzoli and Isles. Gerritsen plays on our fears in exploring what can happen when ordinary people unwittingly trigger extraordinary events Daily Mail As the tension is screwed ever tighter, it's clear that, as ever, Tess Gerritsen has the full measure of the crime genre at her fingertips -- Barry Forshaw
