Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Judgment day is coming....

Two nuns are brutally attacked within the walls of their convent. There seems to be no shred of motive. But during the autopsy Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles discovers something entirely unexpected.

And when a second heavily mutilated body is found and linked to the case, she and Detective Jane Rizzoli find themselves in the midst of a terrifying investigation that seems to implicate everyone.

Because who can really say they’re free from sin?

Another great installment!

Another great installment of the Rizzoli and Isles series. I love the growing relationship between Jane and Gabriel. Ready for book 4.

Great mystery, more plot less blood.

Take a break from the predominance of one serial killer vs their nemesis cop plot which floods the thriller market. This is completely individual and different.
This is the 3rd book in this series so it would spoil the 1st two to jump straight into this one, unless you hate extremely graphic depictions of violence and gore in which case start with this one! It's far more mystery far less bloodshed.

nice story, bad quality of recording

there were many sections that were repeated/ played back for 30 seconds, which is annoying

Could have been better!

As with the previous recording in the series, there are points at which the text is repeated.

didn't enjoy it

as much as I enjoyed the previous books of Tess Gerritsen, I was struggling to get into this one. Still I gave it a try and finished it. but didn't like it
