Evil exists. Evil walks the streets. And evil has spawned a diabolical new disciple in this white-knuckle thriller from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen.

PECCAVI
The Latin word 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 top of 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. 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/9/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nurture Waratah | 1/12/2014

    " This was an average, everyday, serial killer novel. Enjoyable while it lasted but not overly memorable after the event. I was able to pick that there was a traiter in the club, but not exactly who it was. Worth reading if you like this sort of thing, skip over it if you don't. "

    " Another good quick read. Liked it. "

  • 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

  • 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! "

    " 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. "
