This is a series that has almost become a diamond in the rough. I remember, the first book did not really strike me as great, but it was good enough for me to want to read the second one. Ever since, this series has really caught my attention. The setting has been mostly Boston, but this book travels to upstate New York. The Binghamton area, Lourdes Hospital, Norwich and even Syracuse are mentioned. Jane and Maura are tracking an evil force. With the unwanted assistance of the Mephisto Club, they are hot on it’s trail. But the both have personal issues that cloud their minds. Jane’s parents are having marital problems and Maura has fallen in love with a practicing Catholic Priest. The suspense and mystery of this novel are excellent but the personal issues add additional substance to the story. I’m always surprised at how much I enjoy this series and want to find the next book to add to my TBR.

Brittany B. I have this book, haven't read it. I was wondering if I need to read earlier books before this one.

Jerry i don't think so: jane is the feisty cop, maura the brainy ME - but they tend to act more like girlfriends than professional colleagues -- and maura seems able to virtually abandon the morgue whenever it strikes her fancy; not too sure how realistic that is. i think it's a fine series, but several are better than this one imho! jb
