Read in April, 2011

The 2nd book in the series of murder thrillers that inspired the "Rizzoli and Isles" TV series. Also a good read. Continues the story of "The Surgeon" from the 1st book. I remember the episodes on TV that were from these books. Now I kinda want to go back to see what changes the TV show made (besides the obvious fact that Angie Harmon cannot be "plain-looking!").

Review from Booklist:
Gerritsen's fans--and they are many--will be clamoring for this sequel to her most recent book, the best-selling The Surgeon. Here Gerritsen revisits her diabolical mad doctor-serial killer character, Warren Hoyt. Set during a hot Boston summer, this medical-suspense thriller details a series of gruesome crimes in which wealthy men are sadistically murdered after first being made to watch as their wives are tortured and raped. The patterns and methods of the crime point to serial killer Warren Hoyt. However, Hoyt is in prison, put there by Detective Jane Rizzoli, who now must solve this copycat killing spree. Rizzoli, still reeling from her encounter with Warren Hoyt, must steel herself to resolve this case despite getting virtually no assistance from the other members of her homicide squad. Gerritsen throws in a couple of subplots to keep things interesting, and despite the awful subject matter (rape, torture, and murder) and the ugly events, well-drawn characters and a compelling story will grab readers' interest and earn Gerritsen more admirers.
