Last to Die

I am a bit obsessed with series which should be no shock here.  I finally got a chance to read Last to Die by Tess Gerritsen (cuz I so like puppies and rainbows and happy endings, right? ha ha) and was not disappointed.

In the latest Rizzoli & Isles book Rizzoli and Dr. Isles encounter three children with three freakishly similar horrific backgrounds.  All three had their entire families murdered and then several years later their foster families were killed as well.  Coincidentally or was it, all three end up at Evensong the peculiar school run by Anthony Sansone who was introduced in an earlier book.

That's one thing that has to be said about the Rizzoli & Isles series, you can't really read them out of order.  I suppose you could, but you'd miss a lot of background.  And can I also say that watching the series on TNT has me completely confused now that I have to wait months and months to read a new one? I also was thinking today that I think the character of Rizzoli's mom has changed in the book since the show started.  She reads differently to me.  It's so hard because some of the story lines are similar but soo soo different.  I wish the show was more like the books!

Anywhooo, off that tangent.  It was a fast paced read that I finished in a day.  Loved it.  Definitely pick up the series if you are looking for something a little dark and a little thrilling.

Have you read any books by Tess Gerritsen? Have you watched the show Rizzoli & Isles?
