Book Description

July 27 2010 Rizzoli & Isles (Book 8)
In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they’re stranded with no help in sight. As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages. The town’s previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness — someone who is watching Maura and her friends. Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura’s charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend. The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless — and the chilling truth about Maura’s fate.

4.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE Killing Place is Ice Cold: Not a new story Sept. 28 2010
By T.
Format:Hardcover
I purchased the Killing Place and Ice Cold at the same time...BEWARE they are the EXACT SAME BOOK...I have mentioned this to Amazon to indicate this but so far they are pumping it like it's a new story...don't be fooled. The Killing Place is published in England. Ice Cold is published in the US but Amazon refuses to indicate they are the same story.
It's a good read, though!

"Then He said, 'Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.'" -- Genesis 22:2 (NKJV)

The book opens in Idaho where the narrator, Prophet Goode, has his eye on Katie Sheldon, a thirteen-year-old girl. After a harrowing scene, the story leaps sixteen years into the future and reveals the torment that Dr. Maura Isles and her priest-lover, Daniel Brophy, are dealing with in their secret relationship. Dr. Isles is on her way to a medical conference in Wyoming. Once there, she bumps into a casual acquaintance from college who invites her to join him, his thirteen-year-old daughter, and two friends for a day of cross-country skiing before she returns to Boston. Things start to wrong . . . and then get worse. Midway through the book, you'll feel your heart in your throat with your pulse pounding. The suspense and the threats keep growing.

Ice Cold offers a number of very powerful themes for your consideration: Child abuse, religious cults, love, duty, friendship, corruption, and survival.

Ice Cold is one of the very best books I've read by Tess Gerritsen about Dr. Maura Isles and Boston homicide detective, Jane Rizzoli. Unlike some other books in the series, the blood and gore aren't quite so overwhelming, the plot makes a lot more sense, and the excitement is exceptional. For me, the book just missed being a five-star effort due to some bits and pieces of sloppiness in story transitions where the plot didn't make quite as much sense as it should have. But it was a fun read, and I highly recommend Ice Cold if you are fan of these books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gerritsen left me sleep deprived July 7 2010
By L. J. Roberts TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
First Sentence: She was the chosen one.

Medical Examiner Maura Isles, in Wyoming for a medical conference, takes off on an impromptu ski weekend with a former college friend, his daughter and another couple. Faulty GPS directions and a blizzard, leaves them lost, stranded and one of the group with a life- life-threatening injury. Seeking shelter, they find the village of Kingdom Come where, in spite of signs that people lived there very recently, everyone has disappeared. Her friend, who leaves to seek help, disappears and it's up to Maura to brave the winter.

In Boston, Det. Jane Rizzola is informed her friend, Maura, died in a car accident and fire. Jane travels to Wyoming with her FBI-agent husband and finds the more they learn, the more things seem wrong. What has really happened and just who are the bad guys?

I must remember the lesson of never starting a Tess Gerritsen book in the evening as I did not put this book down until I'd finished it at 4 a.m. So I write this review being sleep deprived.

By the 8th book in a series, some authors forget a reader may be picking this up as a first book. Not true here. The essential background information for each character is incorporated into the flow of the story.

We know who these characters are and understand their relationships. The only character for whom that is not true is the rather mysterious and enigmatic Anthony Sansone, introduced in The Mephisto Club, yet that lack of definition felt deliberate and didn't bother me. Both Jane and Maura are smart, strong, capable women while having a more vulnerable side making their portrayals realistic.

Gerritsen's ability to convey setting and conditions not only provide a strong sense of place but add to the tension of her books.
