Read full description of the books:
This is a riveting mystery that I found hard to put down. I read it in two days. It starts with the discovery of a severed hand and a gun in an alley, and then a body w/o a hand on a roof. The dead woman was dressed in black and had no id--all suggesting a professional killer. The car belonging to the dead woman is found and it has a handheld GPS with two addresses--a martial arts academy in Chinatown and a retired Boston police detective, Lou Ingersoll. Detectives Rizzoli and Frost soon find links to a mass shooting that happened 19 tears ago. It was closed out as a murder-suicide. Dr. Maura Isles, Boston M.E., helps reopen the 19 year case by reviewing the case and finding discrepancies. Rizzoli and Frost start to ask questions and the puzzle just gets more difficult. I kept reading more and more, wanting answers.
The case is resolved with a very satisfactory ending. This is book 9 in the series.
There are side plots in the book, family issues with Jane Rizzoli's mom and police hostility towards Dr. Isles, whose testimony helped convict a Boston cop of murder.
One humorous quote: "What the heck is a venture capitalist, anyway?" said Frost... "
"I think they use money to make money." Jane said
"But how do you get the money to start with?
From friends who have it.
I gotta get me some new friends."
If you watch the tv series, you will like the books. There are differences between the two and there are developments that carry through the book series, so they work better if read in order. Tess Gerritsen made a cameo appearance on the tv show a few months ago. My wife and I like both the tv & book series.
This was a library book.

While on maternity leave from her work as a physician, she began to write fiction. In 1987, her first novel was published. Call After Midnight, a romantic thriller, was followed by eight more romantic suspense novels. She also wrote a screenplay, "Adrift", which aired as a 1993 CBS Movie of the Week starring Kate Jackson.
Tess's first medical thriller, Harvest, was released in hardcover in 1996, and it marked her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Her suspense novels since then have been: Life Support (1997), Bloodstream (1998), Gravity (1999), The Surgeon (2001), The Apprentice (2002), The Sinner (2003), Body Double (2004), Vanish (2005), The Mephisto Club (2006), and The Bone Garden (2007). Her books have been translated into 31 languages, and more than 15 million copies have been sold around the world.
As well as being a New York Times bestselling author, she has also been a #1 bestseller in both Germany and the UK. She has won both the Nero Wolfe Award (for Vanish) and the Rita Award (for The Surgeon.) Critics around the world have praised her novels as "Pulse-pounding fun" (Philadelphia Inquirer), "Scary and brilliant" (Toronto Globe and Mail), and "Polished, riveting prose" (Chicago Tribune). Publisher Weekly has dubbed her the "medical suspense queen".
Now retired from medicine, she writes full time. She lives in Maine.
