Die Again (Rizzoli & Isles 11) by Tess Gerritsen

December 14, 2014

die again

I am an unashamed fan of the Rizzoli and Isles books in particular and of Terss Gerritsen generally. Unlike other long character series, Die Again felt fresh and lively and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Set in Botswana and Boston, Die Again links murders in the bush with a series of homicides in Boston and the wider area. Millie has gone on safari with her boyfriend, Richard. But all is not well between them and as if strained relationships in the safai camp were not enough, soon the deaths begin.

Meanwhile, back in Boston, a killer begins to erase everyone who poses a threat.

As ever, there’s a little more insight into the domestic lives of both Rizzoli and Isles and their families and I love the relationship between Jane and Maura which crackles with realism in its detail.

From the Okavango Delta, Botswana to Boston Zoo, this police procedural/crime thriller works because the storylines are strong and the characters well drawn.
I did know ‘whodunnit’ fairly early on, but that didn’t in any way detract from a thoroughly enjoyable book. I wanted to see how the central story line was resolved, and I wasn’t disappointed. Gerritsen has done it again – a really good page turner.
