The Silent Girl: A Rizzoli and Isles Novel | [Tess Gerritsen]

The Silent Girl: A Rizzoli and Isles Novel

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.

Publisher's Summary

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. Nineteen years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead. One woman connected to that massacre is still alive: a mysterious martial arts master who knows a secret she dares not tell, a secret that lives and breathes in the shadows of Chinatown. A secret that may not even be human. Now she’s the target of someone, or something, deeply and relentlessly evil. Cracking a crime resonating with bone-chilling echoes of an ancient Chinese legend, Rizzoli and Isles must outwit an unseen enemy with centuries of cunning — and a swift, avenging blade.

    "Great plot! Audio performance needs help..."
    Where does The Silent Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The least I've enjoyed. It was incorrectly labeled and I listened to the part 2 first.


    What other book might you compare The Silent Girl to and why?

    NA


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Distinguish between the characters

    "GREAT LISTEN!!"
    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.

    Story
    "A knockoff from "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo""
    Would you try another book from Tess Gerritsen and/or Tanya Eby?

    I am a big fan of Tess Gerritsen. I am definitely getting the next Rizzoli/Isles installment!


    Any additional comments?

    I have all the Rizzoli/Isles audiobooks and I have to say I am disappointed that this story was almost a copy of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," from the heroine (with a dragon tattoo herself) and the big "aha" moment at the end.

    Story
    "A Bit Predictable"
    Would you try another book from Tess Gerritsen and/or Tanya Eby?

    As it says in my headline, I found this story slightly predictable, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. I did like Garritsen’s character development and I will try another book by her. Can’t say I will listen to a book just because Tanya Eby is the narrator. She did a good job but I have listened to better character voicings that let you know exactly who was speaking without the “so-&-so said” attached. Eby didn’t do it for me this time.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Can’t say, “yes”. I did like the plot and I do like figuring things out but this plot rode the line of too predictable for me.


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

    I would go see this book as a movie. I’d like to see what they would do with it on the big screen.


    Any additional comments?

    I found this book a little disjointed. That doesn’t mean it was bad. I just got lost at a couple places and had to rewind to figure out what I missed and who was where. Another reader may not notice that at all.

    "A Little Disappointing"

    I did not enjoy this as much as her others. I just wasn't as enthralled with the story and found myself daydreaming while listening.

    "Great follow-up on Maura's storyline"

    This is Rizzoli and Isles I know and love. Tess went back to Maura and followed up on her story from Ice Cold, and told what happened to Rat. I love that she did that. The TV show always shows Jane and Maura together for everything, and anybody who has read Tess's books knows the characters are back and forth. It's like a soap opera, characters from other stories show up, and if you've read the books, you know them. I think this book is good reading. It has a storyline that is easy to follow, and not too cluttered with too much detail, and still keeps my interest. I listen at work and it makes time go faster.....a good thing.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    I enjoyed this book even though the narrator was a little annoying. Tess Gerritsen writes a really good story that was easy to listen too.
