This was a really good mystery with interesting twists and turns.
I love Tanya Eby for the Rizzoli and Isles series. She does a really great job. I have heard others but noone sounds the way I think the characters are supposed to sound.
I am a big fan of Tess Gerritsen. I am definitely getting the next Rizzoli/Isles installment!
I have all the Rizzoli/Isles audiobooks and I have to say I am disappointed that this story was almost a copy of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," from the heroine (with a dragon tattoo herself) and the big "aha" moment at the end.
As it says in my headline, I found this story slightly predictable, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. I did like Garritsen’s character development and I will try another book by her. Can’t say I will listen to a book just because Tanya Eby is the narrator. She did a good job but I have listened to better character voicings that let you know exactly who was speaking without the “so-&-so said” attached. Eby didn’t do it for me this time.
Can’t say, “yes”. I did like the plot and I do like figuring things out but this plot rode the line of too predictable for me.
I would go see this book as a movie. I’d like to see what they would do with it on the big screen.
I found this book a little disjointed. That doesn’t mean it was bad. I just got lost at a couple places and had to rewind to figure out what I missed and who was where. Another reader may not notice that at all.

I did not enjoy this as much as her others. I just wasn't as enthralled with the story and found myself daydreaming while listening.
This is Rizzoli and Isles I know and love. Tess went back to Maura and followed up on her story from Ice Cold, and told what happened to Rat. I love that she did that. The TV show always shows Jane and Maura together for everything, and anybody who has read Tess's books knows the characters are back and forth. It's like a soap opera, characters from other stories show up, and if you've read the books, you know them. I think this book is good reading. It has a storyline that is easy to follow, and not too cluttered with too much detail, and still keeps my interest. I listen at work and it makes time go faster.....a good thing.
I enjoyed the ‘Silent Girl’. It contained eastern mysticism, a well written plot, and a twisted and a surprising ending. The narration wasn’t the best and I think that spoilt my enjoyment of the book. Otherwise, I would totally recommend it.
I really liked this book. I enjoyed the Chinese history and the new character introduced. Tess Gerritsen has another success!
Great book - very well read. Difficult to "put down", really kept me interested- literally on the edge of my seat.
I don't usually do reviews but had to on this title. The story is fine but the reader drove me crazy. She has a frontal lisp and her "s" pronunciations took away from the story. How does someone with this pronounced speech impediment find work reading audio books?
I love the Tess Gerritsen novels and have read most of them. However, this is the first time that I have listened to any of her books. I have a large audible collection besides this. Anyway, there were times when it sounded like a robot was reading. The inflections were all in the wrong places. Story was good as usual!
