The cloistered grounds of the convent have traditionally represented a place of faith and peace. Now, that peace is shattered as two nuns are found, one dead, one mortally wounded. The killings appear to be without motive, without an obvious suspect, and are further complicated by the murder and mutilation of a third woman. Together, medical examiner Maura Isles and intense, moody homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, both introduced in earlier Tess Gerritsen novels, uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As long-buried secrets come to light, Isles finds herself drawn inexorably towards the heart of an investigation that strikes closer to home - and towards a dawning revelation about the killer's identity too shattering to consider.… (más)

This is a great suspense series. I was really happy with the direction the characters went in this one. Originally I avoided these books because I didn't like the covers but now I kind of can't get enough of them. ( )

Gerritsen kan verkligen bygga upp en spänning i sina böcker och den här är inget undantag. I denna bok utvecklas också karaktärerna och vänskapen mellan Rizzoli och Isles. ( )

Another of Tess Gerritsen’s Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles book. I really like this series. I also have watched the TV program with the same. She helped with all of this. Back to the Book. Rizzoli is called in due to some nuns being found dead at the chapel. When she and Isles are investigating they find out the youngest nun was pregnant.
Where is the baby ? No where to be found in sanctuary. They begin a larger search. Also how did the young nun become pregnant? Who killed these nuns? They are trying to find out all of this. They start investigating the sanctuary.
Another woman is murdered in an abandoned building. They are unable to tell who she is due to how badly she was mutilated. So now they are waiting on the forensics for this. Is she part of this same crime with the nuns ? Then Rizzoli finds out some ancient history of the sanctuary. The killer is called The Sinner.
A large company is involved due to an accident that occurred and the doctor working for this company was aware of this accident. He went out and Checked on some of these people who also had some lepers in after the accident. He thought they all died. He had to take care of the bodies. All of this happened in India. And it was covered up
He was unaware that someone lived and made it back to the states after the accident occurred and could tell what happened over there in India.
So as usual multiple things going on but it all runs together after a bit. The Sinner tries to kill Maura but you will have to read to see what happens and why all of this is being done. I do not want to give away the whole story. Interesting as usual. ( )

Synopsis: 'A grisly murder at a convent baffles Medical Examiner Maura Isles and Det. Jane Rizzoli at the start of this assured, richly shaded seventh novel from bestseller Gerritsen (The Apprentice; The Surgeon, etc.). The popular duo are called to Boston's Graystones Abbey when two nuns are discovered in an abandoned chapel, one dead and the other near death, both brutally bludgeoned. Red herrings are everywhere: Isles's discovery that one of the murdered nuns had recently given birth (followed shortly by the discovery of the baby's body in a pond near the convent); the murder of a homeless derelict with her face and extremities removed by her killer; and the lurking menace of a multinational chemical company. Complicating matters further is the sudden arrival of Isles's ex-husband, Victor, a celebrity humanitarian with his own suspicious connection to the case, and Rizzoli's old flame, FBI agent Gabriel Dean, who's responsible for the baby now growing in Rizzoli's belly. The investigation is rather low-key, but Gerritsen gives atmospheric depth to her tale with descriptions of snowbound Boston and an exotic past tragedy. Isles's pleasantly bitchy coldness ("Go ahead and pass me, idiots. I've met too many drivers like you on my slab") gives a welcome edge to the proceedings, and the struggles of both Isles and Rizzoli to balance their tough professional acts with romantic drama are satisfyingly gritty.'
Review: This was delightfully convoluted. It also wasn't as creepy as the first two books. It's satisfying that Rizzoli and Dean are finally together. ( )

I need to read more of Maura and Jane.

I'm not familiar with the TV show but I absolutely loved everything about this book and the characters. ( )
