Publisher's Summary

In the murky shadows of an alley lies a female’s severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, the body nearly decapitated. Two strands of silver hair — not human — cling to her body. They are Rizzoli’s only clues, but they’re enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make a startling discovery: This violent death had a chilling prequel. Nineteen years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead. One woman connected to that massacre is still alive: a mysterious martial arts master who knows a secret she dares not tell, a secret that lives and breathes in the shadows of Chinatown. A secret that may not even be human. Now she’s the target of someone, or something, deeply and relentlessly evil. Cracking a crime resonating with bone-chilling echoes of an ancient Chinese legend, Rizzoli and Isles must outwit an unseen enemy with centuries of cunning — and a swift, avenging blade.

An excellent listen

This is the latest book the series featuring detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles and it's a cracking good story. Each book in the series can be enjoyed on its own but knowing the back-story, from previous books, adds to ones understanding of the characters' motivations. I'm often amazed at author's ingenuity in thinking up plots and this book has a particularly interesting and exotic background of Boston's Chinatown and the communities cultural heritage. It's a cracking good story that I finished quickly as I was eager to find out the solution to the crimes.
The reader is very good.

The Silent Girl

This is the first book I have read/listened to by Tess Gerritsen and can highly recommend it , although this is part of a series it did not detract in anyway that I had not read previous books in the series. I have had some very late nights staying up to listen - a gripping, book with superb twists. The reader complimented the book perfectly. I will be listening to others in this series!!
