Somehow I always feel cheated after reading a book in this series. Not matter how smart Jane Rizzoli or Maura Isles is built up, they always fall prey to the most obvious traps. If it's not a drugged drink, then it's someone standing in the corners. You gotta wonder how no one's killed them, yet - well, Maura has died twice already if you're keeping track. This book, however, felt like it was written for a television audience going through withdrawals from lack of episodes on TV. The cover even has the TNT logo stamped on it - what's going on with that?! Or maybe I'm just growing out of my Gerritsen stage. Whatever the case, I need to make the following pleas: Tess, if you're reading this, please consider writing Mephisto Society and the Students of Evensong spin-offs. There's money there, and you know it!

Brandi Brown She seems to be setting us up for a Rizzoli/Isles split that could launch into a series on the Mephisto Society, which I think would be an enjoyable transition.
