Rizzoli and Isles

October 15, 2012

“Last to die” by Tess Gerritsen

Once again, forensic pathologist Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli are brought together to solve a baffling case.

Two years ago, Teddy lost his parents in a violent attack.  Now his foster parents have also been brutally murdered, and his emergency caregivers have also been attacked. Someone is determined to kill him, but who and why?

While visiting her young friend Julian ‘Rat’ Perkins at his new boarding school in the wilderness, Maura discovers that two of the other boarders have identical stories to Teddy.  It seems impossible that this is a coincidence, but no one can discover a connection.

In the meantime, Jane brings Teddy to the remote school, where she’s sure no one will be able to find him. But within days, the killer has made his presence felt again.

Tess Gerritsen is in her usual fine form, with plot twists and turns, and a surprising ending. Almost better was the fact that she has developed and enlarged on the relationships of Maura and Jane.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and was riveted for about five hours straight. And if you’re a fan of the TV series screening on TV2 now, why not read all the previous novels to see what you’ve missed!
