Reading a Tess Gerritsen thriller is like walking with growing trepidation down a dark twisting passageway, waiting for a hand to suddenly snake out and grab you. Perhaps that’s why People says the bestselling author “could raise gooseflesh on the dead.” But what about a mummy? When one such astonishing specimen is unearthed in Boston, of all places, crack Medical Examiner Maura Isles is called in to see exactly what’s under wraps. What she finds, much to her shock, is that the body enclosed is barely cold! It seems the freshly murdered corpse is that of a missing young woman, sadly proven to be the victim of foul play. Naturally, it doesn’t take long for the media circus that followed the “mummy’s” headline-making discovery to quickly whip the stunned public into an out-and-out frenzy of fear. Nor can Maura blame them. When it’s found that more women have been killed and similarly preserved, she’s somewhat soothed to learn that Detective Jane Rizzoli is taking over the case. But even with two such dedicated professionals investigating, will they be able to stop this bizarre killer before he adds yet another keepsake to his gruesome collection?
