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…

Tess Gerritsen

Tess Gerritsen took an unusual route to a writing career. A graduate of Stanford University, Tess went on to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, and was awarded her M.D. in 1979.

While on maternity leave, she began to write fiction. On a whim, she submitted a literary short story to Honolulu Magazine’s statewide fiction contest¯and won first place!

In 1987, Tess`s first novel was published. She has now written 19 novels and is a Sunday Times bestseller. She also wrote a screenplay, ""Adrift,"" which aired as a 1993 CBS Movie of the Week starring Kate Jackson.

Having lived in Hawaii, she now resides in Camden, Maine, with her husband and two sons.
