In the murky shadows of an alley lies a female’s severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, the body nearly decapitated. Two strands of silver hair — not human — cling to her body. They are Rizzoli’s only clues, but they’re enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make a startling discovery: This violent death had a chilling prequel. Nineteen years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead. One woman connected to that massacre is still alive: a mysterious martial arts master who knows a secret she dares not tell, a secret that lives and breathes in the shadows of Chinatown. A secret that may not even be human. Now she’s the target of someone, or something, deeply and relentlessly evil. Cracking a crime resonating with bone-chilling echoes of an ancient Chinese legend, Rizzoli and Isles must outwit an unseen enemy with centuries of cunning — and a swift, avenging blade.

    " I tried reading this a few times on my Kindle, but it took me downloading it from Audible to really get into it. I'm so glad I finally read it though, because the plot is intricate and there were several surprises. Thankfully the next book in the series is already awaiting me on my audible account! "

    " I really loved this book. My first time reading her Rizzoli & Isles Novel. It was one thoes mystery/crime books that you would carry everywhere with you because its that good. Tess is a Gifted writer. I loved the voice of the character Fang, the place of chinatown and how the story kept building up to the final end.I even loved how she incorporate the ancient Chinese Fables in the mystery. I'm really looking forward to reading more books by her. "

    " Great book! I love this series and this book was no exception. Unlike the last book in the series, this one focuses mainly on Jane Rizzoli, although Isles makes definite appearances. What I loved about this was the infusion of Chinese culture and folk lore. Also, Gerritsen kept me guessing as to "who done it" almost til the very end (which is something I appreciate in a mystery). Definitely recommend this one. "
