Rating: 4/5 Stars
Second book in the series.
It’s super good. I’m just upset the show took the first two books and made them into one episode… it missed out on so much more the book has.
Jane Rizzoli is finally the main character, which makes more sense since the first book seemed unsure about how it was going to handle Jane. But the books are so much more in depth and darker. Don’t get me wrong, I deeply enjoy the show. The show is just more lighthearted and funny at times while the books are super intense and psychological.
The second book is the hunt for another serial killer, one who is working with the surgeon so it’s interesting. Rizzoli is having a hard time dealing with her experiences… major post traumatic stress… but she doesn’t want to admit it. There’s also an FBI agent working the case, but he won’t share why. So there’s tension between the two.
Maura Isles is introduced, but she’s a side character. She’s much different from the show, but both characters are interesting in their own ways. It’s definitely not like the show where Rizzoli and Isles are working together yet. But it’s still a good second book, and I couldn’t stop reading even though I knew the outcome. I definitely recommend this series.
