To Maura and Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, the forensic evidence is unmistakable, its implications terrifying. And when the grisly remains of yet another woman are found in the hidden recesses of the museum, it becomes chillingly clear that a maniac is at large - and is now taunting them.
Archaeologist Josephine Pulcillo's blood runs cold when the killer's cryptic missives are discovered, and her darkest dread becomes real when the carefully preserved corpse of yet a third victim is left in her car like a gruesome offering - or perhaps a ghastly promise of what's to come.
The twisted killer's familiarity with post-mortem rituals suggests to Maura and Jane that he may have scientific expertise in common with Josephine. Only Josephine knows that her stalker shares a knowledge even more personally terrifying: details of a dark secret she had thought forever buried.
Now Maura must summon her own dusty knowledge of ancient death traditions to unravel his twisted endgame. And when Josephine vanishes, Maura and Jane have precious little time to derail the Archaeology Killer before he adds another chilling piece to his monstrous collection.

This book was a huge let down compared to the others. This was all over the place and I did not like the narrator at all. I lost interest multiple times.
Not unless I have to in order to finish this series.
This is a really good book but have enjoyed all of Tess Gerritsen's books so far.
The book is a good read and interesting, but the narration is boring. She mispronounces names and words and drones on and on, making the story uninteresting. This book should be narrated by Tanya Eby :)
Yes, I generally like the books.
No, this is the genre I prefer, I will continue
Yes, I have listened to other books, it is the writing not the narration which was disappointing
The plot was okay, but not up par
I thought there was too much written about the museum in which it takes place. It was difficult to keep the reader's attention on the plot in the beginning of the book.
I haven't read the print version but I listened to this in the car and it was easy to follow.
The audio would have improved if the reader used different voices for the two women.
Maura and Jane are at it again. Great book and easy listening. Many twists and turns with a surprise ending. Cant' wait to read more in this series.
I did not enjoy this book as much as previous Tess Gerritsen titles. I am not sure if it was the book itself, or the narrator. I was not fond of her random inflections. For whatever reason, she made simple statements and questions sound sarcastic or surprised or she ascribed other random emotions to things that did not seem logical in the context. It was distracting.
