Tess Gettitsen is an author I have heard about but not read any of her work, so when I was browsing in the library, I recognised the name, and thought I should try her out. Crime novels are one of my favourite genres and the more gruesome the better. Gerrirsen's work is highly acclaimed by a number of other authors who I enjoy, such as Harlan Coben and Stephen King, and her work is compared to Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs, so I felt that I was fairly confident I would enjoy her work. 'The Apprentice' is probably a bit strange for me to start with, as it is part of a series of books by Gerritsen featuring detective Jane Rizzoli and Dr Isles, the ... Read the complete review

This is the first Tess Gerritsen book that I have read and I am reasonably impressed with it. It is her sixth novel but is the second in the series starring detective Jane Rizzoli and is a follow on from the previous novel entitled The Surgeon. ~~~The Plot~~~ Serial killer The Surgeon was caught by detective Rizzoli a year ago and has been in jail ever since. But now a new series of killings is bearing a startling resemblance to The Surgeon's handiwork. Still traumatised from her first dealings with The Surgeon, Rizzoli tries to make sense of this new case but her world is shot to pieces when The Surgeon escapes. Will he unite with the other killer ... Read the complete review

The second book to feature Detective Jane Rizzoli and a direst follow-up to THE SURGEON, THE APPRENTICE picks up a year after it's predecessor with Rizzoli attempting to come to terms with what happened and still bearing both the physical and emotional scars. When a new killer emerges on the scene exhibting haunting similarities in his M.O to serial killer, Warren Hoyt, there are those who say that Rizzoli is still obsessed with the man who gave her those scars but when Hoyt escapes from prison and seems to join forces with this latest killer, it is only Jane's obsession that can bring this case to it's rightful conclusion. Teamed with moody FBI agent, Gabriel Dean, who . Read the complete review

Contains spoilers... Another chilling tale from Gerritsen in which Boston is plagued by a second serial killer. Despite the fact Warren Hoyt (the Surgeon) is incarcerated the murders show many similarities to his work, causing unpleasant memories to surface for Detective Jane Rizzoli. Then, Hoyt escapes, leaving the police to face a partnership of killers who are both horribly accomplished at torture and murder and are working together to capture and kill Rizzoli. I think if anything this book is even better than The Surgeon and again Gerritsen uses her medical knowledge to bring a harrowing accuracy to the story. Two pivotal characters are also ...
