Another of my favourites is Tess Gerritsen. She has an amazing talent, and I love all her work. How many of you read Tess?

My last read of hers was Body Double which was excellent!

Body Double (Rizzoli & Isles, #4) by Tess Gerritsen

Haven't you Michael....perhaps you should challenge yourself to do so...

If you do, start with the beginning of a series:)

Michael (MichaelSwensson) | 410 comments My favorite's of hers are Vanish, The Silent Girl and her latest one Last to Die.

I've got it down to read in the November challenge Michael, in my reducing TBR section:) So when I get rid of the ones I need to read for the library, I'll read that one:)

Mish | 270 comments I've not read one of her books either but would like to give it a go. Do her books need to be read in any order or are they all stand alone?

I was thinking of starting off with Vanish

Mish | 270 comments Oh maybe not...that's #5


message 11: by Michael (new)

Michael (MichaelSwensson) | 410 comments No not really even though some character's do come in from previous books Mish. Handy tip though do not watch the TV show as it is very bad. :D

Mish | 270 comments Okay Thanks Michael I'll give Vanish a go.

No I won't bother with the TV show then. I'd rather read the books :)


message 13: by Michael (new)

Michael (MichaelSwensson) | 410 comments Vanish would be a toss up as my favorite in series. Not that the rest aint good just it was a real standout for me. :)

My opinion differs from yours Michael...I would start at the beginning to get to know the characters. I find it's better that way, though they can be read on their own as well. Totally up to the individual... (Of course in saying that, I didn't start at the beginning, as I didn't realize they were a series then!)

She does have some stand-alone novels, but the Rizzoli & Isles series is definitely the best:)

Heidi (butbooksarebetter) | 40 comments Just finished Last to Die and it was really good - my favourite however is still Ice Cold, which can be read as a stand-alone novel as it contains all the info the reader needs.
Does the TV show screen in Australia? I've never heard of it ....


message 16: by Michael (new)

Michael (MichaelSwensson) | 410 comments It does Heidi. I can't remember of the top of my head what channel it's on but from what i have seen it's not very good. Glad you enjoyed Last to Die and what about the twist at the end with Nicholas Clock. Didn't see that one coming.

I didn't either - was a very clever twist!


message 18: by Michael (new)

Michael (MichaelSwensson) | 410 comments For anyone who is interested Rizzoli & Isles tv series is on Gem(90) tonight at 8:30. Like i have said it doesn't really impress me but some may like it. :)


message 19: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (butbooksarebetter) | 40 comments Thanks, Michael ... I may give it a go. Hesitating since often the film / series spoils the books. We'll see ....

I have also heard it's not that good...not true to the books. But I've also heard lots like the show, and haven't read the books!


message 21: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (butbooksarebetter) | 40 comments Meh, didn't do much for me ... I will stick with the books I think! Had a completely different image of the characters ... as is often the case. I love the book series, so can recommend, Brenda!
