    The cloistered grounds of the convent have traditionally represented a place of faith and peace. Now, that peace is shattered as two nuns are found, one dead, one mortally wounded. The killings appear to be without motive, without an obvious suspect, and are further complicated by the murder and mutilation of a third woman. Together, medical examiner Maura Isles and intense, moody homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters.

    What did you like best about The Sinner? What did you like least?

    I liked best the building up of the characters. I liked least the Narrator. Horrible. She makes Maura sound so stuffy and stale. Sheesh! I am forcing myself to listen to the rest. This is a must read, do not listen if you can't get past boring speak.


    If you???ve listened to books by Tess Gerritsen before, how does this one compare?

    I love Tess's books, they are always a good read. I have listened to many of her books out of order so I have gotten used to better narrator's who clearly understand the characters, so I feel as if I know them and how they are supposed to sound. This Narrator, was OMG!!! sooooo boring, I was actually pissed that she totally had Maura's voice all wrong. She made her sound like a stale, unattractive, old lady, with a chip on her shoulder. The description of Maura and the voice were sooooo different. Other narrators from other Rizzoli and Isles books made her sound beautifully smart, yet very book wise, shy, quiet, but strong willed. I am actually still in the middle of this book. I don't think it is the best of the Rizzoli Series, simply because this is an earlier one where her characters lives, Maura and Jane's are really being built up, whereas other books are really and truly about the mystery of the murder, that's ok though, and actually if you read them in order it will be fine, remember I know more about the characters than I should while reading this book.If you are a Rizzoli and Isles fan and you haven't read this yet, READ it, if you listen to it you will be thoroughly upset. I will force myself to listen to the rest.I love the way Tess build upon each character in each book. I started out with Ice Cold, Awesome book and narrator, then Body Double, then Silent Girl which is the absolute BEST EVER and the latest. Then I realized, hey you are reading them out of order. The only reason it matters is because her main charaters lives are built up with each novel and new characters are introduced. Anywhoooo... that is my 2 cents. Oh Oh and just a side note, I can't really get into the TV show just yet because Hollywood has changed the characters up too much for me, well Maura that is. Jane is almost just as I pictured her, love that actress, but the other one is well, just not Maura :-)Enjoy Yall!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anna Fields?

    Tanya Eby is an Awesome Narrator for Tess's Books. She has the characters spot on.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Only if they didn't change the characters like they did in the TV show.

    In the murky shadows of an alley lies a female’s severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, the body nearly decapitated. Two strands of silver hair — not human — cling to her body. They are Rizzoli’s only clues, but they’re enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make a startling discovery: This violent death had a chilling prequel.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a really good mystery with interesting twists and turns.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    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.
