Description

The cloistered grounds of the convent have traditionally represented a place of faith and peace. Now, that peace is shattered as two nuns are found, one dead, one mortally wounded. The killings appear to be without motive, without an obvious suspect, and are further complicated by the murder and mutilation of a third woman. Together, medical examiner Maura Isles and intense, moody homicide detective Jane Rizzoli (both introduced in earlier Tess Gerritsen novels) uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As long-buried secrets come to light, Isles finds herself drawn inexorably towards the heart of an investigation that strikes closer to home, and towards a dawning revelation about the killer's identity too shattering to consider.

Outstanding

I love murder mysteries and this one was top notch. Everything about this book held my interest and I could hardly stop listening to it. Worth the read.

Top-Notch Tess

The who-dunnit tension was nicely maintained throughout. This is truly one of Gerritsen's best, and certainly the best of her Rizzoli series that I have read.

The narrator, Anna Fields was also ideal for this book. Her intonation and pace were always just right for any given scene. I could see the whole book in my mind's eye, thanks to Ms. Fields.

Great Read

Another good one for Tess. I enjoyed all the twists and turns of the plot. She holds Rizzoli to character. No matter what is going on in her personal life she still finds time to get a jab in at even the most innocent seeming villian. No one goes unpunished in some way with her and that's satisfying. Some of her points make you want to say "you go girl".
This is a great book and you can't go wrong with it.

Five stars:

The humorous passages are hilarious, Dr. Gerritsen's imagination covers even more ground in this novel, and you won't guess the resolution as all the parts come together thoughtfully. I only regret that I did not "read" this novel in order of publication.

still great

I wish she stayed away from attempts at deep psychology and relationship analyses, but as a thriller it's still among the best. Perhaps not as good as the first one in the series, still enough to keep me hooked.

Asked Dr. Gerritsen About Pronunciation

I really enjoyed this book. I had read reviews talking about the way the narrator pronounced Rizzoli as "Ritzoli" as I found it a tiny bit distracting as well. I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Gerritsen at a book signing for her latest novel & mentioned the way the narrator pronounced it. She explained it as the way a Bostonian would pronounce it. Her example was "Hey..Ritzoli." and did it in the dialect like this narrator did. I would have preferred the narrator to stay in a regional dialect through out as that would have made it clearer to the listener. Anyway, after she said that, it made a lot more sense to me. If you like the TNT series, Rizzoli & Isles, this book as well as The Surgeon are combined for the pilot episode. I don't want to give anything away as I enjoyed both reading and listening to these books. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes police/medical examiner murder mysteries. One thing I loved from listening to Dr. Gerritsen was that she came up with the idea for this series from a suggestion from one of her readers at a book signing. The woman asked if she could do a book with murderers & kinky sex. It's always great to learn that authors do take in to consideration what their readers would like. I hope this clears up the pronounciation issues for any listeners who may have been put off by some of the reviews. She researches her books thoroughly and if there is something she wants in her books that she doesn't personally know, she does web, book & interviews with people in those fields of study to make sure the information she is putting in her books is as accurate as possible. And don't worry fans, I also expressed my dismay that The Surgeon is only available abridged, which she did not know. So, maybe if the future we will get an unabridged version of that book. Please give this series a try, you won't be sorry

Not a fan of the reader

I've really liked all the readers to the other books, but this reader doesn't get Maura's voice right and she can't even pronounce Rizzoli correctly.

Great story, wasn't thrilled with the narrator

Love this series but didn't love Anna Fields' narration. Her pronunciation of 'Rizzoli' drove me nuts. She does a great job on the Susan Elizabeth Phillips novels but I don't think this is her genre. Otherwise, great story.
