Feed your appetite for razor-sharp suspense. Experience the chilling world of medical examiner Maura Isles and police detective Jane Rizzoli, as they investigate Boston’s most brutal murders. Immerse yourself in this original short story from one of America’s top thriller writers.

It should have been a night to remember, but Maura Isles can’t recall a thing.

Maura is at a party. A handsome man approaches. He’s charming and sophisticated. She flirts and drinks champagne. And then nothing. Total blackness. Nothing, that is, apart from these two facts: a man is dead and her address is found in his pocket . . .

Reviews

[Gerritsen] has an imagination that allows her to conjure up depths of human behavior so dark and frightening that she makes Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft seem like goody-two-shoes

Chicago Tribune

Suspense doesn’t get smarter than this. Not just recommended but mandatory
