as a Abridge book something is better than nothing.
Its a great start. answer some of those weird questions your may have regarding the TV series.
Looking forward to the rest and the new summer series(TV)
yes, I looking for opportunity to finish the book
I have read another Rizzoli and Isles book and really liked it. This book had only Rizzoli in it which isn't bad. It was a bit more graphic then I expected.
Yes but would tell them to be prepared for the discriptiveness.

As mysteries go, this is a great one. Though I'm a classical detective novel fan, this is all it needs to be - cold, brutal, disquieting, suspenseful.
Absolutely. Moves quickly. I hated to stop.
Dennis kept the characters crisp.
This is my first Gerritsen audio book. It will not be my last.
Yes...I love this series and I loved the twist.
Dr. Isles of course, she kept her cool in the midst of everything.
The Surgeon is the "first" in the Rizzoli and Isles books. I was a little disappointed that Jane was NOT the featured character and Isles was non-existant; however, the story was really good. I would have liked a bit more development in the characters and story, but all in all I found the book good and creepy!
The plot was a bit disjointed in places and relationships were not rounded out, but the suspense was pretty good. Some twists that seemed out of left field. I would recommend the book.
Boutsikaris's narration was the best part of the book. He used a wonderful creepy voice when we are taken into the mind of a killer. Haunting.
The most memorable character in The Surgeon was the killer! This is mostly due to Boutsikaris's utterly creepy "madman" voice! I will hear it in my head for a long time.
I am a fan of Rizolli & Isles TV series, that's the reason I bought this audio book. Story is great but the narration by Dennis Boutsikaris is terrible!! I will definitely not listen to another book narrated by him
Because I've listened to other books in this series I went to the end. If this had been my first purchase I don't think I'd have bought any others. I found the narrator bland and it was difficult to tell when he switched characters.
When the lead character is a woman I believe the narrator should also be a woman.
I love this entire series!
Yes! It sucked me in and I had a hard time turning it off to get out of my car and go to work!
RN working on my DNP. Member since 2011, over 900 books have passes thru my earbuds! I listen to books while doing almost everything! 😉
I liked listening to it because I could "read" a book and while doing other things.
Tess Gerritsen's books are like the Lincoln and Child books. I like them because the plots have so many twists and turns I usually don't figure the mystery out until I read the end.
Unchanging, clear, poor character change
A policemen can also be a victim.
