IT'S GORY, IT'S GRIPPING, IT'S GERRITSEN. INTRODUCING DETECTIVE JANE RIZZOLI

HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE IT HURTS...

‘This is crime-writing at its nerve-tingling best’
Harlan Coben

A killer is targeting lone women, torturing and murdering them. The precision of his methods leads Detective Jane Rizzoli to suspect he is medically trained.

Then Jane makes a terrifying discovery. Years ago a young woman was assaulted in a similar way. She escaped by shooting her attacker dead.

So why does it feel like he’s stalking her again?

Reviews

Grabbed me by the throat and didn't let go until its hair-raising finish. Deep, dark and very disturbing

Tami Hoag

If you've never read Gerritsen, figure in the price of electricity when you buy your first novel by her, cause baby, you are going to be up all night

Stephen King

If you're home alone, do not risk even the first sentence. Once you've started reading this book, putting it down and saving it 'til later is not an option

Mo Hayder, author of "Birdman"

This book is going to make you squirm... a taut, well-placed and throughly realistic thriller

The List

Superior to Patricia Cornwell and as good as James Patterson... Macabre and gruesome but absolutely riveting

Bookseller

Authentic, convincing descriptions in gut-wrenching detail

The Sunday Times

Contains enough grisly detail to put you off hospitals for life. But if you like your crime medicine strong, this will keep you gripped

Mail on Sunday

A real page-turner. A read-in-one-go novel if ever there was one... an excellent thriller that goes straight to the top of my list

Independent on Sunday
