Detective Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles are back. I just can not believe this is book 11. And I have to admit I have loved everyone of them. This has been a fantastic series of books. Tess Gerritsen really does know how to write a bloody good story.
WE leave Boston this time and head out to Africa.
The book starts off with a group on safari in Africa, when one of the group is killed, and the rest of the group should really get the hell out of there, but they can't. They have no means of communication and there truck wont start.
Mean while back in Boston Rizzoli and Isles are trying to solve the murder of taxidermist Leon Gott.He had been sent a rare snow leopard that he was supposed to be preserving. Is there a link to a disappearance a few years ago.
We go between Boston and Afric in this book, and its fantasticly written on how it all comes together.
I really got the feel reading this book on how dangerous being on Safari really could be, I think Gerritsen has done a fantastic job with the details, which really make you feel like you could actually be there. And many holding your breath moments, a few times i had to stop reading to get my head together and tell myself i wasn't actually there. Any book that can make you feel like you are there is obviously very well written.
The story is written in a way that you just want to keep on reading. And thats exactly what I did. I was very lucky to get an early copy of this to read. And as this is one of those authors where it doesn't matter what they write you know you will buy it anyway, I was thrilled to get the early copy.
If you are a fan of Gerritsen's books, and have read the other 10 in this series, I really do think you will enjoy this. If you have not read any of her other books, then stop reading this now and go and treat yourself. You will not regret it.
