Yet once Hoyt is suddenly free, he joins his mysterious blood brother in a vicious vendetta....

    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 uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters.

    For untold years, the perfectly preserved mummy had lain forgotten in the basement of Boston's Crispin Museum. Its sudden rediscovery by museum staff is both a major coup and an attention-grabbing mystery. The mummy - to all appearances, an ancient Egyptian artifact - seems a ghoulish godsend for the financially struggling institution. Medical examiner Maura Isles soon discovers a macabre message hidden within the corpse - horrifying proof that this "centuries-old" relic is instead a modern-day murder victim.
