Die Again by Tess Gerritsen
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I am a fan of the Rizzoli and Isles TV series and like the dynamics of their relationship, both as friends and colleagues, but in my mind the books are always so much better, sharper, more gritty and full of tension. This one is no exception; it is first rate. It spans both time and place with events occurring in Botswana six years ago heavily connected to those occurring in Boston USA now. With several suspects and scenarios, it keeps you riveted and guessing to the surprise ending. Brilliant stuff.

If you like Tess Gerritsen you might also like to read books by Karen Rose, Mo Hayder and Sue Walker.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Like another contemporary female crime writer, Val McDermid, Tess Gerritsen tires of the observation that her books are disturbingly violent – in fact, she once pointed out to this reviewer that violence is usually ‘off-screen’ (so to speak) in her books. But there is no denying (whatever the truth) that her novels are rustling with ever-present menace, and this new Rizzoli & Isles thriller is among the most compelling. In Boston, Detective Jane Rizzoli and forensic pathologist Maura Isles are investigating a grotesque murder in which a man has been found eviscerated and hanging in his own house. Subsequently, another victim is discovered, and it becomes apparent that a ruthless killer has been at work for years – and not just in the city of Boston. The roots of the murders lie five years earlier when a group of travellers set off on an African safari from which only one appears again – a woman who stumbles out of the bush barely alive…

When the remains of another victim are found, it is clear that this murderer has been at work for years, and not just in Boston.

The only woman to have seen the killer's face. THE SURVIVOR - Has the 'safari killer' resurfaced in Boston? Jane is sent to Africa to find the one link between the two cases - the only survivor - and convince her to face death once again...

Reviews

'With DIE AGAIN Tess Gerritsen proves that she is still at the top of her game. I loved this fantastically gripping story and can't wait for more.' KARIN SLAUGHTER

'Tess Gerritsen once again proves her masterful dominance in stories delving into the criminal mind and forensic sciences. Die Again left me breathless as Rizzoli and Isles investigate a horrific murder, one with ties to an unsolved massacre in years past. Here is a story both harrowing and as intellectually as sharp as a dagger's edge. I dare you to try to stop reading this once you've started' JAMES ROLLINS

'Tess Gerritsen always delivers, and this is Gerritsen at her dark, addictive best. What gives Die Again its peculiar charge is the idea, never far from the surface, that we humans are predatory animals like any other. Perhaps we should not be so surprised to find hunters among us' WILLIAM LANDAY

'Seamlessly melding the gritty streets of Boston with the golden plains of Africa, Tess Gerritsen sets up a cunning predator who's spent years perfecting his game. Now, enter Rizzoli & Isles, two of Boston's best determined to catch one of the world's worst in a battle of wits where only the strong can survive. This is Tess Gerritsen at her finest!' LISA GARDNER

'Crime writing at its unputdownable, nerve-tingling best' HARLAN COBEN
