The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A serial killer is on the loose in Boston. The victims are killed in a particularly nasty way: cut with a scalpel on the stomach, the intestines and uterus removed, and then the throat slashed. The killer obviously has medical knowledge and has been dubbed "the Surgeon" by the media. Detective Thomas Moore and his partner Rizzoli of the Boston Homicide Unit have discovered something that makes this case even more chilling. Years ago in Savannah a serial killer murdered in exactly the same way. He was finally stopped by his last victim, who shot him as he tried to cut her. That last victim is Dr. Catherine Cordell, who now works as a cardiac surgeon at one of Boston's prestigious hospitals. As the murders continue, it becomes obvious that the killer is drawing closer and closer to Dr. Cordell, who is becoming so frightened that she is virtually unable to function. But she is the only person who can help the police catch this copycat killer. Or is it a copycat? To complicate matters even further, Detective Moore, often referred to as Saint Thomas as he continues to mourn the loss of his wife, is getting emotionally involved with the doctor.
This book delivers a first class mystery suspense story and let you look into a very disturbed mind. It had me hooked from the first to the last page. I will be honest I only read this book because of the TV series Rizzoli & Isles, that is based on this set of book. All I can say is don't bother with the TV series, even though it is great, this book blows it out of the water. The scariest part of the story is it feel like the killer is talking too you as if you are a friend, you have no idea who he is but you want to hear what he has to say. I will be ordering book 2 today because I want to know what happens to the killer, Rizzoli and Moore. I think I fell a little bit in love with Rizzoli and Moore and can't wait to have my next date.
