BODY DOUBLE (Suspense-Boston/Maine-Cont)- G+
Tess Gerritsen – 8th book
Ballantine Books, 2004 – Hardcover
Dr. Maura Isles returns from a conference in Paris to find a crime scene in front of our house, friends and co-workers looking shocked to see her and a car containing a murder victim who looks nearly identical to her. Tracking back the victim and their relationship leads to an unknown murderer of pregnant women.
Tess Gerritsen knows how to write suspense; and this is definitely suspense and much less a medical thriller than most of her books. Although the opening is a bit cliché, what follows is engrossing and disturbing. There is suspense, twists aplenty, and a climax I definitely didn’t see coming. It’s a fast read because you don’t want to put it down.
