Band 1: Die Chirurgin In Boston dringt ein Unbekannter nachts in die Wohnungen von allein stehenden Frauen ein, unterzieht sie einem gynäkologischen Eingriff und tötet sie. Die einzige Spur führt Detective Thomas Moore und Inspector Jane Rizzoli zu der jungen Chirurgin Catherine Cordell, die drei Jahre zuvor nach ähnlichem Muster überfallen wurde, den Täter aber in Notwehr erschoss. Und bald wird klar, dass Catherine erneut zur Zielscheibe eines psychopathischen Mörders geworden ist ... Band 2: Der Meister Detective Jane Rizzoli wird in ein Bostoner Villenviertel gerufen, wo sie die Leiche des Arztes Richard Yeager vorfindet. Von seiner Frau Gail fehlt jede Spur. Einzig ihr penibel gefaltetes Nachthemd weist Blutspuren auf. Die Ähnlichkeiten des Falles mit den Morden im Sommer zuvor sind unübersehbar, und in Jane werden die Erinnerungen an die grausigen Ereignisse wieder lebendig. Hat sich ein Nachahmungstäter die Verbrechen des »Chirurgen« zum Vorbild genommen? Band 3: Todsünde In einem Kloster nahe Boston ist die Novizin Camille Maginnes brutal erschlagen worden. Bei der Autopsie findet die Pathologin Maura Isles heraus, dass die junge Frau kurze Zeit vor ihrem Tod entbunden haben muss – doch von dem Kind fehlt jede Spur. Dann wird eine zweite Frauenleiche gefunden, bei der Maura Anzeichen für eine frühere Lepra-Erkrankung feststellt. Detective Jane Rizzoli und Maura Isles vermuten eine Verbindung der beiden Fälle. Und die Entdeckung eines grausamen Geheimnisses gibt Jane und Maura auf schreckliche Weise Recht ...
Middle of Nowhere
Author: Ridley Pearson
A brutal attack that leaves a young woman paralyzed is horrifyingenough, but when it happens to one of Seattle police lieutenant Lou Boldt's ownofficers, and all the suspects wear the same uniform as the victim, it's muchworse. The SPD has been struck by a not-very-mysterious case of the "blue flu,"a labor dispute that's turned cop against cop. Frustrated by the work slowdownin the department, Boldt is working almost on his own, except for forensicpsychologist Daphne Matthews and detective John LaMoia, familiar characters inPearson's popular series (ThePied Piper, The FirstVictim). Despite not-so-veiled warnings from some of his colleagues, Louis determined to unmask Maria Sanchez's attacker, even if it turns out to be afellow cop. And if that's not enough, the piano-playing lieutenant with adevoted wife--and a lingering yen for his coworker Daphne--has to deal with acrime wave that's increasing every day as the blue flu fells more of theforce.Investigating a string of robberies, Lou and Daphne follow the evidence to atelemarketing operation in a Colorado prison and question an inmate who may haveused inside information to set up the robberies for his brother in Seattle tocarry out. When the inmate dies, his brother goes after Lou, who isn't sure whoto blame when violence hits too close to home--the brother or the strikingpolicemen. Middle of Nowhere isn't Pearson's best outing: the plot isthinner than usual and the pacing somewhat slower, although the detailedexplanation of how to catch a criminal using new telecommunications technologyis fascinating. Still, Lou Boldt is an always interesting character whose innerconflicts are well drawn and whose essential decency makes up for a lot. Hisunderstated romance with Daphne deepens in every new adventure; the real mysteryis what's going to happen to the two of them. --Jane Adams
