Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Tess Gerritsen knows how to expertly dissect a brilliantly suspenseful story, all the while keeping fascinated listeners riveted to her side. By turns darkly enthralling and relentlessly surprising, The Keepsake showcases an author at the peak of her storytelling powers.

For untold years, the perfectly preserved mummy had lain forgotten in the dusty basement of Boston's Crispin Museum. Now its sudden rediscovery by museum staff is both a major coup and an attention-grabbing mystery. Dubbed "Madam X", the mummy - to all appearances, an ancient Egyptian artifact - seems a ghoulish godsend for the financially struggling institution. But medical examiner Maura Isles soon discovers a macabre message hidden within the corpse - horrifying proof that this "centuries-old" relic is instead a modern-day murder victim.

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.

Kept me exercising

I used my audiobooks as a way to lure me into exercising. Not allowed to listen unless I am doing something productive. This book was worth it. I kept needing to go back to it and was satisfied with the ending.

Always buy Unabridged

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I wasn't paying attention when I bought this book... the abridged version leaves so much out :( I was disappointed, but my own fault...
