No one takes readers to the dark side and back with more razor-sharp jolts and sheer suspense than the storytelling master behind Ice Cold and The Keepsake. When New York Times best-selling author Tess Gerritsen has a tale to tell, put yourself in her expert hands and prepare for the shocks and thrills that are certain to follow.

Every crime scene tells a story. Some keep you awake at night. Others haunt your dreams. The grisly display homicide cop Jane Rizzoli finds in Bostons Chinatown will do both.

In the murky shadows of an alley lies a females severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, her head nearly severed. Two strands of silver hair not human cling to her body. They are Rizzolis only clues, but they're enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make the startling discovery: that this violent death had a chilling prequel.

Nineteen years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead. But 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DeliaC | 2/6/2014

    " Surprisingly enjoyable and not tedious at all! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 2/5/2014

    " Took about 5 hours to read. Good, fast paced, slightly repeating some themes. More a Rizzoli book than a Rizzoli and Isles book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon Maxwell | 2/4/2014

    " Pretty good. I'm not a fan of the t.v. show, but enjoyed the book. Standard murder mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 2/3/2014

    " The latest Rizzoli and Isles book is a good effort. Several strange murders seem to be connected to a massacre that took place in a Chinese restaurant in Boston 19 years before. Was the blame unfairly placed on a cook who committed suicide at the scene? Rizzoli and Isles seek to solve the current crimes and also the one from the past? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill James | 2/1/2014

    " One of Gerritsen's best. I loved finding out about Boston's Chinatown. Rizzoli and Isles are my favorite characters. "

    " I enjoyed this book from start to finish. It has myths and mystery mixed into the plot. It also has twisted and turns and keeps you guessing for the whole book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 1/26/2014

    " The ususal characters....Rizzoli, Isles, Frost, etc. This time going back in time to solve a mass murder in Boston's Chinatown. Real good plot that doesn't solve the crime until the very end of the story. Could be a good movie someday. "

    " What a great book! This is one of the best mysteries I've read in a long time!! I "knew" who the murderer was three times and kept changing my mind.
