I was lucky enough to win a copy of Gerritsen's Last to Die through Goodreads, and I am so glad that I did. I had read one of Gerritsen's books before but it has been quite a while, and after reading Last to Die I wondered why I waited so long to read another one. Gerritsen delivers an emotionally powerful tale that has three orphans each who had faced tragedy twice in their lives caught in the sights of a killer. Luckily these three children have detective Jane Rizzoli and Medical Examiner Maura Isles on the case. Jane is called onto the case while in the middle of a family crisis (Jane's dad now wants his family reunited after her mom met someone else), but she is quickly taken by Teddy. Being a mom herself, Jane wants to protect this boy, and that leads them both into Maura's vacation turning what they thought was an isolated case into quite a mystery. Gerritsen does a great job at blending the suspense, thrills, family drama, action, and mystery while at the same time showing the strong friendship between Jane and Maura. Last to Die is book ten in the series, but I caught on right away although now I want to go back and read Rizzoli/Isles's previous adventures. Overall this was a great read, and I would most definitely recommend it if you enjoy a suspenseful tale, likeable and rootable characters, family drama, and page turning twists and turns mixed with your mystery.
