Ice Cold : a Rizzoli & Isles Novel

Tess GerritsenPublisher: Ballantine Books , New York , 2010
ISBN:9780345515483 Classification: FicGer

From Booklist: Boston medical examiner Maura Isles is in Wyoming for a conference. Impulsively, she joins an old friend and his daughter on a ski trip. When their vehicle breaks down, they?re stranded in the eerily named Kingdom Come, a small community whose residents appear to have vanished. Then Maura vanishes. The announcement of her death shocks homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, Maura?s close friend. Investigating Kingdom Come, Rizzoli uncovers dark secrets that may explain Maura?s disappearance. Gerritsen wouldn?t be the first writer to kill off a popular series character, but is that what she?s doing here? Fans of the novels will no doubt suspect Gerritsen has a few tricks up her sleeve, and surely the upcoming television series based on the Isles-Rizzoli mysteries would seem to suggest that this is a very bad time to kill off Maura. Leaving aside this rather unnecessary subterfuge, the novel is a solid entry in the series, with a compelling mystery and some good, old-fashioned shockers. A solid choice for Gerritsen fans, but probably not the best starting point for those new to the series. --David Pitt
