BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Tess Gerritsen's The Silent Girl.Not even the icy temperatures of a typical New England winter can match the bone-chilling scene of carnage discovered at the chapel of Our Lady of Divine Light. Within the cloistered convent lie two nuns--one dead, one critically injured--victims of an unspeakably savage attacker. The brutal crime appears to be without motive, but medical examiner Maura Isles's autopsy of the dead woman yields a shocking surprise: Twenty-year-old Sister Camille gave birth before she was murdered. Then another body is found, mutilated beyond recognition. Together, Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As long-buried secrets come to light, Maura Isles finds herself drawn inexorably toward the heart of an investigation that strikes close to home--and toward a dawning revelation about the killer's identity too shattering to consider.

Fair warning. Tess Gerritsen was an internist, so her descriptions of crime scenes and autopsies is not only graphic, but intensely detailed. It can be extremely difficult to read at times, however I appreciate the obvious knowledge with regard to the human body and it definitely helps her storytelling.

I went to bed at 10:30 thinking that I would do a bit of reading and then drift off to dreamland. Instead, I found this book impossible to put down and did not turn out the light until I finished, which was after 2 am.

Looking forward to reading more from this author.

Another page turner that was very enjoyable with a thrilling suspenseful finale. Gerritsen is becoming additicve. Some very good parts of the novel; seeing Rizzoli and Isles work together as strong female characters but not without their flaws, seeing Isles with her ex-husband and Rizzoli with boyfriend Gabriel Dean and her very brave personal decision.

I am on a Gerritsen binge- they are all good - loaded w/quirky medical conditions and procedure - but this one is my favorite so far.
