Synopsis: 'A killer and torturer of young women is loose in Boston when he was supposed to have died years ago, and it is up to a weary police detective and his new partner to track down the killer and stop him. This is the first book in a series of suspenseful crime novels set in Boston. I normally don't like novels that mix romance and crime, but this one did it tolerably, at least. The main character is police detective Thomas Moore, accompanied by another detective named Jane Rizzoli (there's a TV series based on these books with her as the main character). Thomas is world-weary, handsome detective who is recovering from the death of his wife years ago. When a young woman named Elena is found murdered, cut up in such a precise and skilled manner and her uterus so neatly removed that it's as if the killer considered it art and had real surgical/medical expertise, Thomas is on the case. Joining him is tough-as-nails, unpleasant Jane Rizzoli.
Jane and Thomas use an online national database of homicide and assault information, cataloging murders from around the country. Killers often repeat patterns so this helps the duo locate other identical murders. None are in New England, but some did happen years ago in Georgia, one in Atlanta and three in Savannah. However, the Georgia murderer Dr. Andrew Capra is reported dead, with DNA evidence and witnesses to back it up. He had one surviving victim, and that victim shot him to death in Savannah - Dr. Catherine Cordell, a beautiful trauma surgeon. Catherine now lives in Boston and Jane and Thomas go to interview her. Catherine is still deeply traumatized by her abuse and near-death experience, and is tightly wound, holding all the pain and fear and mistrust in. She is still scared, and she hasn't truly healed. She finally trusts her colleague at the hospital, Peter, to take her out to dinner.

The murderer meanwhile begins to focus on a new target in Boston/Brookline, a sales representative named Nina. The novel has passages from his viewpoint, and it becomes clear that he is intelligent, educated, well-read and obsessed with killing, blood, and power over beautiful women. Thomas and Jane get a psychological evaluation of the killer, and learn that he is obsessed with control and possession of his victims. Meanwhile, a connection is discovered that connects all the murder victims: all of them were previously rape victims. Catherine discovers this because one of them was on her Internet support group for abused women. Jane's investigation unearths a pattern of clues which shows that the killer is leaving a calling card each time, to show his next crime scene. Their investigation is not fast enough, as Catherine is pinpointed as the next victim and there are grisly hints of what the killer has in store for her - threatening message, her personal effects rearranged, and finally a mutilated woman sent to the ER as a "gift" and warning to Catherine. Jane and Thomas catch up with the clues and a financial trail just as Catherine is kidnapped and taken the killer's personal lab - because that is where he works, as a lab technician at the hospital. The killer turns out to be an accomplice and medical school classmate of Andrew Capra, a man named Warren Hoyt. Warren and Andrew murdered together, and Warren continued the trend in Boston, using his job as a lab technician to collect personal details of the women he eventually killed. Catherine is tied up, about to be raped and cut again, when the police search led by Jane eventually finds her in a woods cabin, and Hoyt dies in the resulting shootout.
Throughout the book a very understated romance develops between Thomas and Catherine, and I prefer it that way. There are no wild sparks, just a steady building of trust. Thomas is intrigued by her and sympathetic and protective, and Catherine feels safe with him, and protected by his strength. Thomas marries Catherine at the end.
Thomas and Jane's relationship also develops through the novel. Jane is hard around the edges because of the long history of sexism she has faced as a woman officer, and Thomas is the first person to treat her as an equal. A camaraderie builds between them and Thomas is the only guy Jane lets down some of her walls with. By the end of the novel, they are friends.
Review: Make sure you're not in the house alone when you read this one. Good character development and plot line. Really creepy! ( )

Great read

A good story with well-developed characters. It kept me guessing. I am looking forward to reading another Rizzoli and Isles novel. ( )

I needed a medical thriller to fulfill a prompt in one of my reading challenges. I chose this because I had heard of Gerritsen, but I had never read anything she wrote. I enjoyed the book, but I'm not sure this is a series I will continue with. ( )

Story involved Detective Rizzoli trying hard to get the all male team to recognize her as an asset. Unfortunately when uses her gun more than necessary, she is restricted. Of course she continues investigating without help. Her partner Moore falls in love with a doctor that is targeted as next victim. Isles not part of story. A student kicked out of medical school uses his training violently against women copying a way his lab partner killed in another city. Even at end Rizzoli is hardly considered an asset. ( )
