Product Description


"Gruesome, seductive and creepily credible" (The Times)

"[Gerritsen] pulls no punches when it comes to confronting the most extreme and disturbing outer reaches of human behaviour... But we Gerritsen fans are a hardy breed and this scarifying novel delivers everything we go to her for" (Daily Express)

Book Description


A terrifying Rizzoli and Isles thriller.

More About the Author

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. But her interests span far more than medical topics. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena. She started off her writing career with romance novels, now published by Mira. But in 1996 she switched to writing thrillers with her novel HARVEST, inspired by the anger she felt about the illegal trade in human organs. It was her first New York Times bestseller. Since then she has become an internationally bestselling author of crime novels, and her thriller series starring Boston detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles is the basis for the hit television series "Rizzoli & isles." She lives with her husband in Maine. For more information on Tess Gerritsen and her novels, visit her website:

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mephisto Club 16 Jan 2012
By Dot
Format:Kindle Edition
The Mephisto Club is the 6th book in the Rizzoli and Isles series and it is by far my favourite. I can't believe how much I have enjoyed this series of books, Tess Gerritsen just keeps on getting better and better!
I think that this book is darker than the previous ones. I felt that parts of it were verging on horror rather than the crime/thriller genre. Tess Gerritsen does not hold back when describing murder scenes and in my opinion she is one of the best at creating and maintaining the tension throughout a book.
Dr Maura Isles and Jane Rizzoli team up once again but there is tension in the air as Rizzoli does not approve of Maura's developing relationship with Father Daniel Brophy. The discordance in their relationship affects the investigation in that Maura is drawn into the Mephisto Club more than she would normally have allowed herself to be. The club studies evil and the person that Isles and Rizzoli are chasing, could definitely be described as that. The victims are found in appalling states, surrounded by words and symbols that lead back to the devil himself. It is clear that the murderer has only just begun but how are they going to catch him when he may not even be human?
I have said in all of my reviews of this series how much I have enjoyed them. Each book has had me gripped from beginning to end; if you are looking for a new crime series to try then check out Tess Gerritsen, she's one of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary stuff! 25 Jan 2011
Loved all Tess Gerritsen Rizzoli and Isles books. I started with this one, not realising it was part of a bigger story, so after i finished i bought all he rizzoli and isles ones and started at the beginning! I found this one sooooooo scary. A word of advice, do not read it when you are home alone and in the evenings!! Even though I was scared I couldn't put it down. Highly reccomend.

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment after all the hype 9 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Having read all five previous novels in the Rizzoli crime thriller series almost back-to-back, I was looking forward to getting my hands and eyes onto the sixth offering. There was quite a lot of hype surrounding its release, built around the premise that there is a parallel species actually living alongside the human race who look exactly like us but who are descended from an evil bloodline dating back to pre-biblical times - there are apparently several names for this Satanic breed but one of the better known is Nephilim, who, legend has it, were originally created by a consummation between fallen angels and little-known offspring of Adam, the first man on Earth. There's a rather familiar concept here, one of a conspiracy involving the Christian and Catholic churches that suggests that certain events in age-old history have either been erased or manipulated in order to satisfy the highest powers among those and other faiths. Something not drastically different was pulled off more successfully in The Da Vinci Code, even if that novel lacked the strong characterisations so thoroughly and convincingly portrayed by Tess Gerritsen in the Rizzoli portfolio. Basically this is mutton dressed as lamb, a by-the-numbers serial killer tale with the cops looking for the baddie, but what could have otherwise been a scary, tense and gruesome thriller (which Ms.G knows how to write) is instead diluted as a result of her determination to wrap it around, or within, a number of ideas she learned of in such ancient publications as The Book of Enoch and the Book of Jubilees.

Anyone buying this book who has never tried the author's work before may not be as tempted to sample her wares again as would probably have been the case with either The Surgeon, The Apprentice, Vanish, or possibly Body Double.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Good Enough 21 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was initially drawn in by the opening scenes of The Mephisto Club -- something about dismembered body parts and satanic cults -- and the writing was strong, the prose solid. The dialogue, although not great or particularly interesting, was suitable for the story and realistic. Plus I liked the main character Jane Rizzoli.

But . . .

After one-hundred-and-forty pages I put the book down. By this point only one possible suspect had been introduced and the story had barely advanced past the first murder or the character's thoughts on it. The plot was sort of static, just meandering along, with no detective work in sight. I didn't mind the family scenes, and I've always enjoyed slow-moving novels. But this isn't slow-moving --
it's just slow without the moving. Plus I had one major beef with the prose: Tess Gerritsen's overuse of the word gaze. Everybody gazes, or catches someone's gaze, or moves their gaze, or changes their gaze, or focuses their gaze. I think I found the word "gaze" like twice on every page. It was annoying and an editor should have cut some of them back, or suggested alternatives.

So although it was well-written (gaze-issues aside), the book didn't really engage me, or make me want to read on.

I just have better things on my bookshelf . . .
