I seem to be on a bit of a Tess Gerritsen roll at the moment. I picked up The Sinner in a bookshop on my way through the station, and of course, it didn’t disappoint. Fast-paced, gripping and interesting, it was a rollercoaster ride of a book.
Two nuns are killed in the convent where they live. A woman is killed in an abandoned restaurant, her hands, feet and face severed. A man is shot in the chest and dies. And Dr. Maura Isles, the so-called ‘Queen of the Dead’ who examines bodies for the police, suddenly finds her ex-husband back in town and wanting to reconcile.
None of these events seem to be linked, but as Rizzoli and Isles battle their way through case after case, they are drawn into a web of intrigue, and each strand seems to lead them back to a village in India. What is going on? You’ll have to read it to find out.
