Publisher's Summary

Evil exists. Evil walks the streets. And evil has spawned a diabolical new disciple in this white-knuckle thriller from New York Times best-selling author Tess Gerritsen.

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 a member of a sinister cabal called the Mephisto Club.

On top of Beacon Hill, the club's acolytes devote themselves to the analysis of evil: Can it be explained by science? Does it have a physical presence? Do demons walk the earth? Drawing on a wealth of dark historical data and mysterious religious symbolism, the Mephisto scholars aim to prove a startling theory: that Satan himself exists among us.

With the grisly appearance of a corpse on their doorstep, it's clear that someone, or something, is indeed prowling the city. The members of the club begin to fear the very subject of their study. Could this maniacal killer be one of their own, or have they inadvertently summoned an evil entity from the darkness?

Delving deep into the most baffling and unusual case of their careers, Maura and Jane embark on a terrifying journey to the very heart of evil, where they encounter a malevolent foe more dangerous than any they have ever faced...one whose work is only just beginning.

    "Captivating."

    Right from the get-go, this story grabs you.
    Then -it keeps you in suspence till the very last sentence.
    It is very well written and also well read. I liked the narrator. And, while the storyline was a "bit bizarre"...man..it really got you to thinking...hmmm...could it be possible?

    This would make me want to read ALL of this authors books.

    "Great story, Disapointing Narrrator"

    The narrator was a big disapointment but the story was great. The narrator did not have the ability to change her voice to play the various characters in the book. As a result, I fould myself rewinding much of the time to keep track of which character was speaking. A poor narrator can ruin and otherwise great book.

    "BRAVO"

    I love Tess Garritsen's books. She never disappoints. I usually find myself amazed and impressed while listening to her stories. The Mephisto Club was no exception. Although it may seem like it's a little off the beaten path for this author-it grabs you hard from the beginning and holds you tight throughout. Watch out Dean & Stephen you have company in your playground. Although I like the stories with Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles the best, I will purchase any book by Tess Gerritsen knowing that I will be highly entertained.

    "good book"

    I enjoyed the book, if you are looking for a book to help make your run or swim go by quickly this is a good choice. I have read, not listened, to other Tess Gerritsen books and they too are enjoyable, quick reads.

    "Great Book"

    This new book from Gerritsen is worth the wait! It is one of the best, if not the best in the Moira and Jane series. A little far fetched, but good story telling and strong characters.

    "Average"

    The book is just ok.The plot is sometimes weak and predictable. Maybe with a better job from the narrator I would have enjoyed it more, but she makes it challenge to listen to
