Review quote

"This is possibly the most bone-chilling story featuring on-going characters Rizzoli and Isles. Gerritsen plays on our fears in exploring what can happen when ordinary people unwittingly trigger extraordinary events" Daily Mail "As the tension is screwed ever tighter, it's clear that, as ever, Tess Gerritsen has the full measure of the crime genre at her fingertips" -- Barry Forshawshow more

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.show more
