The Sinner by Tess Gerritsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Not even the icy temperatures of a typical New England winter can match the bone-chilling scene of carnage discovered at the chapel of Our Lady of Divine Light. Within the cloistered convent lie two nuns–one dead, one critically injured–victims of an unspeakably savage attacker. The brutal crime appears to be without motive, but medical examiner Maura Isles’s autopsy of the dead woman yields a shocking surprise: Twenty-year-old Sister Camille gave birth before she was murdered. Then another body is found, mutilated beyond recognition. Together, Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As long-buried secrets come to light, Maura Isles finds herself drawn inexorably toward the heart of an investigation that strikes close to home–and toward a dawning revelation about the killer’s identity too shattering to consider.
I loved this book right from the start, the fact it was Maura's story gave it a new edge. As is to be expected from a Tess Gerritsen book, this is a complex and intricate plot with just enough intrigue to keep me on tender hooks not knowing who is the bad guy and who to trust.
I was kept guessing right to the very last and I loved that as I can very often work out the bad guy. I will be reading the next book in this series as soon as I can.
