More About the Author
For a considerable time Tess Gerritsen has been producing some of the most challenging -- and disturbing -- crime novels being written today. A speciality, of course, is her preparedness to go further than most authors would dare to -- male or female -- and with The Mephisto Club, she once more seems prepared to face the reader and say: if you can take it, I can dish it out. While Gerritsen has found new things to say in the genre of the serial killer novel, what really distinguishes her work is the brilliant characterisation of her twin heroines, medical examiner Dr Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli. Both protagonists feature in this latest novel, and while it might not crank up the tension to the same degree as the remarkable Vanish, it will be a rare reader indeed who will be able to put this one down.
Christmas in Boston brings horror rather than good cheer when a woman's body is found dismembered in a crime scene that leaves even hardened cops queasy. Doctor Maura Isles is assigned to the case, but soon another brutal murder takes place: a woman has been mutilated and murdered on Beacon Hill, near the home of the director of the Mephisto Club. This is a clandestine society whose subject is the study of evil -- and its agenda is to confront it in its most unadulterated forms. As Detective Jane Rizzoli becomes involved, its quickly apparent that both women (no strangers to the bloodiest extremes of human cruelty) are up against something which is close to a distillation of the purest evil.
This isn't quite Tess Gerritsen on her very best form, but its still more compelling and audacious than most thrillers being written today. The legions of Tess Gerritsen fans need not hesitate. --Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

An excellent read once again. Can't wait for the next one hot off the press. Tess Gerritsen did not dissapoint.
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.
The Mephisto Club features Detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles, two immensely likeable female leads who have significantly grown as characters during the course of the series. Their personal lives are intertwined with this story, but not overbearingly so. Here, they investigate a series of deaths with apparently Satanic connections. Meanwhile, in Italy, we observe a character called Lily as she flees from an unknown man. It is evident that the strands of the story will eventually weave together, and Gerritsen is an expert at this by now.
If you're already a fan of this series, you won't need any convincing to buy this book. If you're not, The Mephisto Club comes highly recommended. It's not absolutely essential to read the books in order, but since the characters' personal lives develop throughout, you couldn't really do any better than start with The Surgeon and race your way through the rest before devouring The Mephisto Club with equal fervour.
Gerritsen is virtually untouchable in the genre at the moment, and shows no signs of wavering. Fabulous.
