Loved It

This was a cracking serial killer story. Kept me gripped from the start and I couldn’t stop listening. Can’t wait to read more Tess Gerritsen books. Fab narration too.

great performance of a good crime thriller

my first Tess Gerritson - a fast paced crime thriller with interesting personalities. A lot of very gruesome medical detail - not for the squeamish! - but the fallout of sexual assault sensitively managed. I would definitely listen to others. Extremely good performance from the narrator.

What a page turner!

So gripping! While I was listening to it, I checked all doors and windows several times at night so terrified was I! Unputdownable! And really great narration, too. There is however no Dr Isles in this book and the Jane Rizzoli we meet is very different from the cool, beautiful, confident and popular Jane Rizzoli portraied on TV. I like the less perfect, more human version much more, I have to say.

A cut above..

Dark, visceral, female perspective thriller. Similar to Patricia Cornwell at her best. Great narration, kept me intrigued & never bored. The medical realism is utterly believable as the author was a doctor, so if you're not too squeamish the details are really interesting!
