This is truly one really scary book, and reading it sent shivers up and down my spine. Just the retelling of the autopsy methods was stomach-churning, but the crimes involved in this work are gory almost beyond belief.

Read this book, but keep a lot of lights on …

I had the chance to read a solid crime mystery over the last couple of days... Body Double by Tess Gerritsen. A nice read...    Dr. Maura Isles is a pathologist in the big city. Her life takes a bizarre turn when someone is shot and murdered in front of her apartment. The problem is that the victim could pass as her identical twin. If true, this means that Isles had a sister she didn't know about, and it looks as if that sister was trying to contact her. She talks to a lawyer …

In the prologue to Gerritsen's latest Maura Isles/Jane Rizzoli thriller, a bullied, unhappy schoolgirl is lured into the woods by a handsome classmate and then cast into a pit to die. Gerritsen then switches to Isles, a Boston medical examiner, returning from a Paris conference (where she takes us on an eerie tour of the catacombs) to find Homicide Detective Rizzoli among the cops on her front lawn, blue lights flashing, shocked to see her. They've just been examining her murdered corpse.    Hav …
