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.

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!!

This is called book 9 in the series, but it is mostly a stand alone novel. It is also mostly Rizzoli and very little Isles.
I started reading TG because of the weirdness she often puts in her books. A good amount of inventiveness can make up for lack of writing skill. This book had less creativeness, but yet the writing has not improved. I liked the story, but had trouble getting into it.I did not feel empathy for the characters. If you are a TG fan then it is worth your credit, if you have not read TG, then start with The Surgeon, probably her best. I also liked Life Support, Gravity, The Apprentice and Ice Cold.
Gerritsen and Eby must be good buddies, cause I can't figure out why Tess is sabotaging her books by letting Eby kill them. Ice Cold was a good book, but Eby read it like it was her first book ever. This book was not near as bad, less weirdness to her voice, also less inflection, less emotion, less everything. I will keep buying and listening to books by Gerritsen, but she is losing possible new fans by letting Eby learn how to read on her books. Tess you are a star now, so do like Stephen King and demand only the best readers.

I have read all Rizzoli and Isles books long before the TV series was made. I liked the storyline,even though it was really easy to figure out who the murderer was. What I didn't like was the missing interaction between Rizzoli and Isles and even between Rizzoli and the rest of the family, which are only mentioned in passing.The main reason I read Tess Gerritsens Books is because of the interaction of the characters and the full cast of friends family and rivals to follow. Isles storyline I think is only there to prepare for the next book. I really hope that in the next book TG will go back to a real Rizzoli and Isles story
