'A seamless blend of good writing and pulse-racing tension.' Independent


Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles is asked to attend an intriguing examination. An ancient mummy has been found in a museum basement, prompting great media excitement. But with horror she realises that it's not as ancient as they thought...A very modern bullet is showing up on the scan.

Detective Jane Rizzoli is called to investigate and soon discovers a second - and then a third - mummified body. Who is this killer and why does he preserve his victims so meticulously?

And who will be the next to join his monstrous collection?

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.
