    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.

    Starting my trial this was my immediate choice to use my credit on as I've been gagging to get Tess Gerritsen's latest Rizzoli & Isles. I must admit to thinking I was going "make do" with the audio book until I could get the printed copy but I have been very pleasantly surprised. Not only was the story itself extremely gripping, easily one of my favourite of the series but Tanya Eby narrated it fantastically. She infused the characters with a realistic feel and it added to my eagerness to keep listening. I suspect that if I could have listened in one sitting I would have.

    As with Tess Gerritsen's other stories, this is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing right up until the end. I'm hoping that we'll be seeing some more of the some of the mysterious and gripping new characters we met.

    This is a definte for any Tess Gerritsen fans or anyone else who might be looking for an addictive new author.

    Policewoman Kat Lindley is running from the big-city job that nearly got her killed, and from memories of the abused boy she failed to save. She agrees to undertake a dangerous masquerade within the peaceful Amish community of Maplecreek, desperate to save its children. Widower Luke Brand is a leader in the Amish community. But his people are under attack from unknown assailants. The community is reluctant to turn to the outside world - until a particularly vicious assault forces Luke to seek help.

    The first book was ok if a little dull as far as mystery books go, I prefer those a little grittier than this. All the same I thought I'd give this second one a go. Honestly I didn't find the storyline that engaging and half the time the narrator sounded pretty bored to me, I simply could not get into. Ended up not finishing this one and returning for a refund.
