BODY DOUBLE is the kind of crime writing that will have you checking the locks on your own windows and doors more than once.
To savor every heart pounding moment of BODY DOUBLE don't read the inside book flap, just start reading the book. All you need to know is that it features Boston Medical Examiner Dr. Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli as they try to unravel the gruesome work of a serial killer. This is another "ripped from the headlines" type story that have become so popular of late. And no one does it better than Gerritsen!
The story and the crimes seem almost too bizarre to believe, yet deep down inside, you know it could happen just like this, if it hasn't already.
The writing is first class and I thoroughly enjoy this series. Jaded as I sometimes feel about the thin line between true crime and psychological suspense tales, I must admit, once I open a Tess Gerritsen book, I don't put it down until I've read every word. This is one scary writer and I can hardly wait for her next book!
Other titles by this author include: HARVEST, LIFE SUPPORT, BLOODSTREAM, GRAVITY, THE SURGEON, THE APPRENTICE, and THE SINNER.
