It is a boiling hot Boston summer. Adding to the city’s woes is a series of shocking crimes, in which wealthy men are made to watch while their wives are brutalized. A sadistic demand that ends in abduction and death.

The pattern suggests one man: serial killer Warren Hoyt, recently removed from the city’s streets. Police can only assume an acolyte is at large, a maniac basing his attacks on the twisted medical techniques of the madman he so admires. At least that’s what Detective Jane Rizzoli thinks. Forced again to confront the killer who scarred her—literally and figuratively—she is determined to finally end Hoyt’s awful influence . . . even if it means receiving more resistance from her all-male homicide squad.

But Rizzoli isn’t counting on the U.S. government’s sudden interest. Or on meeting Special Agent Gabriel Dean, who knows more than he will tell. Most of all, she isn’t counting on becoming a target herself, once Hoyt is suddenly free, joining his mysterious blood brother in a vicious vendetta. . . .

Filled with superbly created characters—and the medical and police procedural details that are her trademark—The Apprentice is Tess Gerritsen at her brilliant best. Set in a stunning world where evil is easy to learn and hard to end, this is a thriller by a master who could teach other authors a thing or two.

    " Tess Gerritsen can breathe life into a story and again, another Rizzoli and Isles that I couldn't put down. "

    " Listened to this on audio. This is the 2nd book in the Jane Rizzoli series set in Boston. Jane is a homicide detective who is investigating the murder of two couples that resembles a case she was involved in the previous year. The only problem is the killer in that case is currently in prison. I'm a little leery of serial killer mysteries as they seem to be very popular, but I enjoyed this book. Jane can handle herself, and prooves that point at the end of the book. "

    " Gory and suspenseful. Good. Addresses the challenge of being a female homicide detective in a man's world and the non-gender challenge of handling the evil seen on the job on a daily basis. "
