Review by devenish
Dr Maura Isles is working late in the silence of the autopsy room when she hears a sound from one of the body bags. She opens the bag and pulls the body of a drowned woman out. As she examines her,the eyes open - the woman is alive ! Thus begins this 'Rizzoli and Isles' crime novel.Unlike others in this series,there are no serial killers to be hunted down. Instead there is a vast conspiracy involving one of the highest officials in the country in rape and murder. The FBI and CIA,as well as the military are attempting to keep the lid firmly on the case and only Jane Rizzoli,who is heavily pregnant,seems in a position to fight for justice.Another thrilling read from Tess Gerritsen.
