aka what happens when Dr. Maura Isles leaves Boston. While I didn't care much for the cult angle or the others she was stranded with, I felt Jane's pain in trying frantically to find her. I also really love Julian and Bear and am glad to see them maintain a role in the series. Read full review

About the author (2011)

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. Her thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles. But Tess's interests span far more than medicine and crime. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena.
