Book Review: Killing Place by Tess Gerritsen - Reviewed by (31 Jul 2011)

The Killing Place is the 8th in Tess Gerritsen’s Rizzoli/Isles series. It’s cold, it’s November and Maura Isles is in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, for a pathologists’ conference. Things are less than ideal in her relationship with Daniel Brophy, and whilst at the conference, she runs into a college acquaintance, Doug Comley. She makes an impulsive choice to accompany his party to an isolated ski lodge and finds herself, their vehicle stranded in deep snow, in the deserted village of Kingdom Come. When Maura appears to have gone missing, Jane Rizzoli, Gabriel Dean and Daniel Brophy fly to Wyoming to investigate. Their crashed vehicle with four badly burned bodies inside seems to indicate the worst for Maura. Gerritsen departs from her usual crime committed, investigated and pathology done formula: this book has a bit of a Karin Slaughter feel. But once again, an original plot with twists to the end (if you think you know whodunit, you will get a surprise!), credible characters and authentic dialogue. Once again, we are treated to plenty of interesting facts in easily-digestible morsels, this time about the autopsy of poisoning victims, septicaemia and cult religious groups. Gerritsen touches on Stockholm syndrome, polygamy, paedophilia, police corruption, charismatic leaders, mass suicide, gangrene, amputation and toxic waste disposal. Another great Gerritsen read.

Author Biography - Tess Gerritsen

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. Her thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles. But Tess's interests span far more than medicine and crime. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena.
