Tess Gerritsen is now officially my new favourite crime novelist!
'Die again' - while I suspected it to be cheesy and predictable - was actually anything but! Right up until the last chapter, I had no idea who the killer was, and the narrative flowed so smoothly I barely even noticed that I was staying up til the early morning hours to read 'just one more page'.
After a prestigious taxidermist is brutally killed, Rizzoli and Isles have to find the killer - but while on his tracks, they seem to be finding more and more bodies that are connected to the killer. Their hunt takes Rizzoli all the way to the African bush, and Maura has to face some truths about herself and who she is.
This book is fantastically written! It's full of action packed passages worth savoring. Full of killer twists and turns, this book will leave the reader aching for the sequel. This emotional book will make your heart race, palms sweat and eyes cry! Highly recommended. - Sue M
