When a mummy is examined by CT scan and found to have dental fillings and a bullet in it, Medical Examiner Maura Isles and Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli know that it is a modern day murder victim not a centuries old relic. As more carefully preserved bodies show up, they realize they are dealing with a monster. A monster that has been following his intended prey for years, from Egypt to Mexico and back to Boston.

A fast ride like a roller coaster, but like a roller coaster has rails and a specific path it travels, the plot for this thriller is carefully woven and the twists and turns only make the ride more thrilling. Even though police think they know who the killer is, a revelation takes all by surprise, but is not unbelievable and as the detective has an “Aha!” moment, so does the reader. In the end not everyone is who they say they are and yet it is written with such skill that it is not confusing. The full involvement of other characters is not fully known until the end.

I recommend this book.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
