In downtown Boston, a sadistic killer is killing and mummifying the bodies of young women. Detective Jane Rizzoli and Dr Maura Isles are called in to investigate in Tess Gerritsen's heart-pounding new bestseller.
Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. But her interests span far more than medical topics. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena.
