The Sinner (Book #3) by Tess Gerritsen
Within the walls of a cloistered convent, a scene of unspeakable carnage is discovered. On the snow lie two nuns, one dead, one critically injured - victims of a seemingly motiveless, brutally savage attack.
Medical examiner Maura Isles' autopsy of the murder victim yields a shocking surprise, but the case takes a disturbing twist. The body of another woman has been found. And someone has gone to a lot trouble to remove her face, hands and feet.
As long buried secrets are revealed so Dr Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, find themselves part of an investigation that leads to an awful, dawning realisation of the killer's identity.
I bought this book here and I brought to it with me to our holiday here although I was initially supposed to bring other titles, I changed my mind at the last minuter as The Sinner seems to be more appealing.
Indeed, while it wasn't really as good the the first book that I read, it was good nevertheless. Because I have been watching the series adaptation entitled Rizzoli and Isles, the characters are all very familiar to me and such it was very easy to get right into the story.
The character focus in this title was more on Maura Isles. As I understand it, it's the third title in the series and the earlier two titles were focus more on Rizzoli.
Overall, the story was quite thrilling and enjoyable as fillers of time during the downtime of my holiday.
