The Latin is scrawled in blood at the scene of a young woman’s brutal murder: I HAVE SINNED. It’s a chilling Christmas greeting for Boston medical examiner Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli, who swiftly link the victim to controversial celebrity psychiatrist Joyce O’Donnell–Jane’s professional nemesis and member of a sinister cabal called the Mephisto Club.

On tony Beacon Hill, the club’s acolytes devote themselves to the analysis of evil: Can it be explained by science? Does it have a physical presence? Do demons walk the earth? Drawing on a wealth of dark historical data and mysterious religious symbolism, the Mephisto scholars aim to prove a startling theory: that Satan himself exists among us. With the grisly appearance of a corpse on their doorstep, it’s clear that someone–or something–is indeed prowling the city. Soon, the members of the club begin to fear the very subject of their study. Could this maniacal killer be one of their own–or have they inadvertently summoned an evil entity from the darkness?

Delving deep into the most baffling and unusual case of their careers, Maura and Jane embark on a terrifying journey to the very heart of evil, where they encounter a malevolent foe more dangerous than any they have ever faced . . . one whose work is only just beginning.

    " I was disappointed with the ending of this book. I was look for a more satanistic ending. Did not expect the killer to be a mere psychopath. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 3/22/2013

    " I really enjoyed reading this book. It held my attention throughout. Usually I am able to narrow down the culprit to 2 possible suspects. This time I was totally surprised! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 3/17/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monkey King | 3/11/2013

    " Interesting one in the series. Gets into the world of myth and demons. pretty good but not great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mnearing50 | 2/16/2013

    " Interesting plot. An easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 10/21/2012

    " Just as good as Gerritsen's others and I couldn't put it down, but I kind of wish I'd skipped this one. Devil mythology & demonology is just too creepy for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aneta Jackowska-musiol | 7/2/2012

    " Really unputdownable book. How is Tess doing that to me, making me forget about my study even? Have onbly two flaws in my opinion - again we have a girl in run. And the ending is a bit sensational, like from Arnold Schwarzenegger movie... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 6/30/2012

    " This one was rather tough to get into, but once I did it wasn't bad. Once again Jane and Maura put their lives on the line and ya just gotta keep reading to make sure they make it out of the situations alive..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hedy preble | 6/16/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb Korch | 5/27/2012

    " Excellent book. I rarely give 5 stars but this one deserved them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaz | 8/3/2011

    " It was really interesting book. It seems some readers were disappointed of the ending, but I liked it. I wonder what will happen to Maura, and also wonder if Anthony Sansone would be in future books occasionally. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reeves | 7/2/2011

    " One of Gerritsen's best. As the time moved into the early hours of the morning I still couldn't put this book down until I finished it. She is a great writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 6/16/2011

    " It never ceases to amaze me how Tess Gerritsen can stump me everytime. The minute you think you know what is going on she flips the script on you. Excellent "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aimee | 5/29/2011

    " I had to stop reading when my husband was out of town. Little too spooky at the end to be the only adult in the house reading at night. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margiek2000 | 5/24/2011

    " Book 6 of Rizzoli and Isles. A little on the dark side for me, however, still well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 5/10/2011

    " Little too much Angels and Demons for me. Disappointed at what happened to O Donnell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " It was pretty good. The one character in the book that I didn't like was Jane Rizzoli who I just found out is the star of this book and a whole series. I might consider reading more in the series though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JanB | 4/28/2011

    " The weakest of the series so far. I personally didn't care for the satanic/lost scriptures story line. The ending was weak and many plot holes were left unresolved. My recommendation would be to skip this one and move on to the next in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 4/23/2011

    " I enjoy reading most of Tess Gerritsen books and this was no Exception. I loved the story and almost found myself believing the unreal. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelli | 4/8/2011

    " Could not finish, scared me too bad! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 3/25/2011

    " This one was almost to gross, dark and creepy for me but I really liked it! I enjoyed the historial references. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thom | 3/18/2011

    " Like previous Gerritsen novels, this one keeps you on the edg of your seat with the pages turning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 3/15/2011

    " Ooh, Ooh ... Peccavi - The Devil made me do it! Still ... a good read nevertheless! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 3/5/2011

    " This was another Tess Gerritsen great reads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JC | 3/5/2011

    " Another decent read in this series that I enjoyed. Maura Isles goes off the deep end and the book explores the idea of the afterlife and some interesting topics. Pretty fun read and another good book from Gerritsen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 2/27/2011

    " Good, but I wish that the Rizzoli and Isles series would get back to it's crime scene/forensics roots. Certainly an interesting topic. All I can think of is The Da Vinci Code and The Thorn Birds. "
