The Silent Girl

Good morning.  Did you see the full moon last night?  Two friends and I took a quick trip to the beach to watch it rise over the ocean.  So beautiful!

The Silent Girl is an interesting novel because it is full of Chinese mythology.  It stars two of Tess Gerritsen's most popular characters, Laura Isles and Jane Rizzoli.

In this one, they are looking for the murderer of a woman whose hand fell from a roof in Boston's Chinatown.  It leads them back twenty years to a murder/suicide and the disappearance of young girls. 

As usual I enjoyed Gerritsen's writing and always look forward to her books.

It's cloudy, here, on the Maine coast today.  Sounds like a good reading day to me!

Accck! I didn't even realize it was a full moon last night. Usually I make sure to take a look although my look wouldn't be anywhere near as nice as yours. I'd love to see it rising over the ocean.

Tess Gerritsen is one of the best thriller authors writing today as affirmed by her series going to TV. The action starts immediately on page one and never takes a respite until the finale. Maura plays a minor role as she has enough on her plate with the blue backlash and the emphasis on the police investigation. Readers get glimpses as to what is happening in Jane's personal life while much of the support cast adds complexity to the prime whodunit.
