Description:

With DIE AGAIN Tess Gerritsen proves that she is still at the top of her game. I love this fantastically gripping story and can’t wait for more’ KARIN SLAUGHTER

 

THE VICTIMS

In Boston, Detective Jane Rizzoli and Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles are investigating a bizarre murder. A man has been found gutted and hanging in his home. When the remains of another victim are found, it is clear that this murderer has been at work for years, and not just in Boston.

 

THE KILLER

Six years ago, a group of travellers set off on an African safari. None of them are seen again – apart from one woman who stumbled out of the bush weeks later, barely alive. The only woman to have seen the killer’s face.

 

THE SURVIVOR

Has the ‘safari killer’ resurfaced in Boston? Jane is sent to Africa to find the one link between the two cases – the only survivor – and convince her to face death once again…

My View:

What a breath of fresh air this narrative is!

Loved the dual settings and the psychological suspense; twists and turns galore. The earlier story based in Africa is unique, compelling and will set your pulse racing…this is not so much a story about the gory details of death (though we are not cheated on the number of deaths within or the stark reality of death) but this is more a narrative about the impact of action/non actions, about friendship, trust, genetics, big cats, domestic cats and… a serial killer.

 

A brilliant and refreshing episode to add to the Rizzoli and Isles repertoire.

  1. I love the TV series (though think we haven’t had any new episodes here in Oz for a VERY long time!!!) but have only read the books sporadically. I actually think the TV show may have ruined it a little for me as I almost prefer their on-the-box presence. (If that makes sense!)
