Author: Tess Gerritsen
In Wyoming, the quaintly named village of Kingdom Come is snowed in, and twelve identical houses are abandoned and in darkness. Cars, similarly, are abandoned. Where are all the human inhabitants? The snowstorm has marooned Maura Isles – and the private road that took her to the village has also led her into a frightening and disturbing puzzle. Subsequently, Jane Rizzoli arrives to find a car containing four bodies, all burnt to a crisp. Is one of the corpses Maura Isles?
I have yet to read a Tess Gerritsen novel that I have not liked and my favourites are those featuring Rizzoli and Isles. Each novel brings a brilliant thriller that is unique and draws the reader in.
Tess Gerritsen does not write your normal thriller and brings something unique and original to the genre. I think that Tess Gerritsen having worked as a medical doctor really shines through in her novels and I think this adds to her originality of her novels.
I read this book in one sitting, I couldn’t even put it down at the dinner table. I was hooked from the first page and found myself disappointed when I got to the end as there was no more novel to read. I loved all the characters that featured in this novel. They seemed so real as they all had their own strengths and weaknesses that add to the depth of the novel.
The ending came as a complete surprise to me and was not what I was expecting. However if fitted in well with the book and I really liked the element of the surprise.
As long as Tess Gerritsen writes novels, I will be among the first in the queue to buy them and will always recommend them to anyone I meet.
