The Apprentice Publisher's Summary

Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles—the inspiration for the hit TNT series—continue their crime-solving streak.

It is a boiling summer in Boston. Adding to the city's woes is a series of shocking crimes that end in abduction and death. The pattern suggests one man: "The Surgeon," serial killer Warren Hoyt, known for his partial dissection of his victims, and recently thrown behind bars. Police can only assume an acolyte is at large, a maniac basing his attacks on the twisted medical techniques of the madman he so admires. At least that's what Detective Jane Rizzoli thinks. Forced again to confront the killer who literally and figuratively scarred her, she is determined to finally end Hoyt's awful influence. But Rizzoli isn't counting on becoming a target herself. Yet once Hoyt is suddenly free, he joins his mysterious blood brother in a vicious vendetta....

    The cloistered grounds of the convent have traditionally represented a place of faith and peace. Now, that peace is shattered as two nuns are found, one dead, one mortally wounded. The killings appear to be without motive, without an obvious suspect, and are further complicated by the murder and mutilation of a third woman. Together, medical examiner Maura Isles and intense, moody homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters.

    For untold years, the perfectly preserved mummy had lain forgotten in the basement of Boston's Crispin Museum. Its sudden rediscovery by museum staff is both a major coup and an attention-grabbing mystery. The mummy - to all appearances, an ancient Egyptian artifact - seems a ghoulish godsend for the financially struggling institution. 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.
