The crime scene is unlike any that Detective Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles have ever before encountered. The woman lies in apparently peaceful repose on her bed, and Maura finds no apparent cause of death, but there is no doubt the woman is indeed dead. The victim’s eyes have been removed and placed in the palm of her hand, a gesture that echoes the terrifying films she produces. Is a crazed movie fan reenacting scenes from those disturbing films?
When another victim is found, again with no apparent cause of death, again with a grotesquely staged crime scene, Jane and Maura realize the killer has widened his circle of targets. He’s chosen one particular woman for his next victim, and she knows he’s coming for her next. She’s the only one who can help Jane and Maura catch the killer.
But she knows a secret. And it’s a secret she’ll never tell.
About the book
First of all I bought this book (ebook) for € 2.99 instead of € 11.99. Good deal I would say, it was discounted for a day on kobo and I was lucky to be aware of it (I usually don’t look the offers of the day every day). I like this series, I started reading it because I watched the TV series Rizzoli & Isles that I haven’t finished, anyway. I like Rizzoli and also Maura, even if I prefer Maura from the series.
I give four stars to this book because I understood almost everything about in the middle of the book, right after Billy’s disappearance. But it doesn’t mean that the book isn’t compelling. I started to be more involved when the 20 year old case was brought to light and it was clear that that story wasn’t completely resolved.
