Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

A killer who knows his trade.

A series of horrific murders seem disturbingly familiar to Detective Jane Rizzoli. They remind her and Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles of those committed by a killer known as the Surgeon, who they recently put behind bars.

While they’re still trying to track down the new killer, the unthinkable happens: the Surgeon escapes. Suddenly, Jane is chasing not one but two brilliant and twisted minds, united by one goal....

Critic Reviews

"Gerritsen was a medic before she turned to writing, and her book contains enough grisly details to put you off hospitals for life. But if you like your crime medicine strong, this will keep you gripped." (Mail on Sunday)

Could have been better!

The story was fine and, though not my favourite, so was the reader.
My problems with this rendition was that several passages, of a few seconds duration, were repeated.
I also had some difficulty in getting back in to the story with about two and a half hours to go.
In a 'technical sense', there is something wrong with this rendition.

Sequel to The Surgeon, get that 1st!

A few glitches and repeats in the recording and some questionable accents but overall a compelling ride. Listen to The Surgeon 1st, its better and this will give away loads.

Great story line..

Wonderful reading as usual, but a couple of snags. Quite often when listening to the book it repeats the same sentence twice. (poorly recorded?)
Also the Narrator needs to do a little more work on her accents, the Irish one was quite amusing!

Great Book

love this book only issue I had with this recording is that several times small passages repeated so was a little confusing. Other than this I enjoyed it.
