New Book Review From Murphy's Mother



Book Review...

'Die Again' by Tess Gerritsen

Happy Friday people! Hope you've all had a pleasant week? Today's post is another from my resident book reviewer, Murphy's Mother. As you all may remember from her previous posts, she loves crime fiction and is a HUGE Tess Gerritsen fan... And on that note here is her review of Tess' latest novel.

Dear fellow readers...

Today's review is of Die Again by Tess Gerritsen. This is an amazingly gripping novel from start to finish. 

In Boston, Dectective Jane Rizzoli and Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles are investigating a bizarre murder. A man has been found gutted and hanging in his home. When the remains of another victim are found, it's clear that this murderer has been at work for years and not just in Boston.
Maura connects the case to a number of seemingly unrelated deaths where the victims have all been found hanging upside down, the hallmark of a leopard's kill.
Rizzoli follows the puzzling trail all the way to Botswana where she uncovers the unsolved mystery of a deadly camping safari six years before. When she realises the two cases are connected, Rizzoli must track down the sole survivor of the tragic trip to discover who or what is behind these gruesome deaths. 
This is another outstanding thriller in Tess Gerritsen's series featuring Detective Jane Rizzoli and her friend and colleague, medical examiner Dr Maura Isles. 
I love the characters of Jane and Maura, Tess portraits the warmth of the two women really well and this novel carries on adding depth to their relationship.
I can't wait to read Tess Gerristen's next novel.

Until next time... MM  xxx

  1. I've never really read Tess Gerritsen or even followed the TV series that is based on these books, but I do remember seeing a few snippets here and there and thinking that this pair is quite possibly one of the funniest pair of BFFs (are they?) ever! Must remember to read these books soon :) Great review, MM!

    1. Yes they are Rhea! Ha ha! I'm obsessed with the TV series. It's those two that really make the show what it is. MM loves the books. I've never really been one for crime fiction but I might give one of Tess' a go! Thanks for the comment Rhea, I'll be sure to pass it on xxx
