    PECCAVI. The Latin word is scrawled in blood at the scene of a young woman's brutal murder: I HAVE SINNED. It's a chilling Christmas greeting for Boston medical examiner Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli, who swiftly link the victim to controversial celebrity psychiatrist Joyce O'Donnell, Jane's professional nemesis and member of a sinister cabal called the Mephisto Club.

    Story

    I have been a Gerritsen fan for a while and have loved reading her books. However, this audio book seemed like a chore to finish.
    It has a good plot with a surprising, if somewhat anticlimactic ending BUT the story seemed bogged down with irrelevant details and minute dissection of the character's thoughts and feelings. Several times I caught myself thinking "come on, just get on with it already."
    I admit I do skim over parts when reading a print book if I don't feel it is adding to the direct story line. Had I been actually reading this book, there would have been many pages skipped. I am all for character development and depth in a series but I felt that this book was almost more about Mara Isles than the case. Maybe I should have just gotten the abridged version - hopefully there is one.
    The narration was adequate but sometimes she applies an accent to Rizzoli that is annoying. Put me in the mind of a female Boston Godfather rather than a police detective.
    I will not give up on this series yet. Fingers crossed that the next installment will be more like the earlier books - the ones that I was disappointed to reach the end.

    Ann Silver is a cop’s cop. As the Midwest Homicide Investigator, she is called in to help local law enforcement on the worst of cases, looking for answers to murder. Hers is one of the region’s most trusted investigative positions. Paul Falcon is the FBI’s top murder cop in the Midwest. If the victim carried a federal badge or had a security clearance, odds are good Paul and his team see the case file or work the murder. Their lives intersect when Ann arrives to pass a case off her desk and onto his.

    Story

    Basing my review on the description given of the book, it is NOT AS ADVERTISED! I was expecting a cop mystery/thriller, absolutely not what I got! There is very little mystery, yes, the main characters are cops or FBI agents but that's secondary to their personal relationships with God and a budding love story. I have nothing against Christian stories, even enjoy them occasionally but this was just too much, could not force myself to finish it. Wish I could return it....

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    Story

    I really enjoyed the story and plot of the book, true Lisa Gardner quality! However the word "meaning" was WAAAYY overused, so much that I wanted to keep track of it. But I didn't. :o) The narrator has some context and pronunciation issues I've noticed in the last few books. Using "live" - as in "live concert" , instead of "live" as in "I live here." And lounge [lounj] like a cocktail lounge becomes "longe" [lonj] as in "longe line for horses". I am not a grammar cop but these things interrupted the story flow and were distracting for me. But the story was so good I'd just back it up 30 seconds, regain my thoughts and go on.

    Story

    I really liked this one. I didn't have it all figured out after chapter 5 like some others I've read. Well paced, just enough character depth without being consuming, and a very good plot.

    But I have to agree with some other reviewers - I would prefer that the narration be "accent-less" if it can't be believable.
