Summary

A blessed event becomes a nightmare for pregnant homicide detective Jane Rizzoli when she finds herself on the wrong side of a hostage crisis in this timely and relentless new thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of Body Double. A nameless, beautiful woman appears to be just another corpse in the morgue. An apparent suicide, she lies on a gurney, awaiting the dissecting scalpel of medical examiner Maura Isles. But when Maura unzips the body bag and looks down at the body, she gets the fright of her life. The corpse opens its eyes. Very much alive, the woman is rushed to the hospital, where with shockingly cool precision, she murders a security guard and seizes hostages... one of them a pregnant patient, Jane Rizzoli. Who is this violent, desperate soul, and what does she want? As the tense hours tick by, Maura joins forces with Jane's husband, FBI agent Gabriel Dean, to track down the mysterious killer's identity. When federal agents suddenly appear on the scene, Maura and Gabriel realize that they are dealing with a case that goes far deeper than just an ordinary hostage crisis. Only Jane, trapped with the armed madwoman, holds the key to the mystery. And only she can solve it, if she survives the night.

An excellent story, well-narrated

An excellent Rizzoli & Isles book that combines an excellent murder-mystery story with themes on sex trafficking, beautifully brought together in a blend that highlights the issues without preaching. Great writing with lively characters that bring the action to life. An excellent story, well-narrated in the audiobook, that I highly recommend for murder-mystery and crime lovers, and of course all R&I fans!

Caution - have changed the title.

Previously listed with Rizzoli & Isles added onto the title.

Now listed simply as Vanish.

Which would all be fine, if it weren't for Audible now listing it as a book that has not been purchased.

I thought it was one of the ones missing from the series, that had become available, and so got it gladly, only to find a book already in my library that was identical in all but title.

What a waste of a credit.

I will be more careful in future.

disappointing

I love Gerrison books so knew the story would be good. Sadly I couldn't get on with the narrator's accent and found myself switching off

Engaging and thought provoking

The story was engaging and the characters believable. Some of the story was tough to listen to but it did make me think about how life must be like for such people in real life. Very well narrated.

I lost sleep listening to this book.

Rizzoli and isles in the midst of trouble. Throughly believable, unfortunately. Tess Gerritson has written another brilliant book. Lorelai King is an excellent narrator.

Murder, mystery and danger for the heroines. This is a stand alone story so you don't need to follow the series, in any case, you won't be disappointed.
