A KILLER WHO KNOWS HIS TRADE `Head-to-head with Nicci French and Karin Slaughter . . . A classic page-turner' Daily Mirror A series of horrific murders seem disturbingly familiar to Detective Jane Rizzoli. They remind her and Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles of those committed by a killer known as the Surgeon, who they recently put behind bars. While they're still trying to track down the new killer, the unthinkable happens: the Surgeon escapes. Suddenly, Jane is chasing not one but two brilliant and twisted minds, united by one goal... To perfect their skills on the woman who's hunting them

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A classic page-turner full of moments of heightened tension. Gerritsen is a craftswoman" * Daily Mirror *
"You may need a smear of Vicks menthol under your nose to get through Gerritsen's autopsies and crime scenes in this follow-up, a masterful sequel to The Surgeon. Tess Gerritsen here moves into Thomas Harris class, though with a style all of her own, never as baroque as Harris, and always smoothly enriched with detail and characters who catch your sympathies... Note: do not read this one in bed or when home alone" * Daily Mirror *
"Head-to-head with Nicci French and Karin Slaughter to scare the pants off you. This is a classic page-turner, full of melodrama and moments of heightened tension" * Daily Mirror *
"Gerritsen was a medic before she turned to writing, and her book contains enough grisly details to put you off hospitals for life. But if you like your crime medicine strong, this will keep you gripped" * Mail on Sunday *
"A cross between Messiah and Prime Suspect, this is gritty, gristly and graphic, the adrenaline pumping overtime till the very last page. But it's not just about blood and gore. Exploring the sexism experienced as a female writer through her central character, Gerritsen also goes some way into questioning why people ultimately kill" * The List *

“Fantastic!”

This is the second of Tess Gerritsen's Rizzoli and Isles books, and although it works as a stand-alone story, it hangs heavily on the plot of the previous book, The Surgeon, so it's advisable to read this... More
