A KILLER WHO KNOWS HIS TRADE

'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 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...

Review quote

"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 *

About Tess Gerritsen

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. Her thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles. But Tess's interests span far more than medicine and crime. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena.
