5.0 out of 5 stars Tess rolls on with another cracking story, 1 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Vanish: (Rizzoli & Isles series 5) (Paperback)
There's a sense with Tess Gerritsen of waiting for a novel that doesn't live up to her usual standards. After all, you don't get any better than The Surgeon, and somehow she's managed to consistently deliver the goods with all the follow-up Rizzoli/Isles novels. Vanish has been eagerly awaited, and one could only hope it wasn't a let down.

Well, it's far from it. Vanish is one heck of a thriller, with the 'just one more chapter' feeling that has you racing to the end before you know it. You almost don't want it to end, because you've just spent the best part of the day caught up in it.

It's evident here that Tess Gerritsen has used Vanish to draw attention to politics and make the reader question the nature and validity of American policy with regard to terrorism. The book draws close parallels with real events, and one suspects that the seed of the plot has a strong link with actual happenings. But make no mistake about it. Vanish is first and foremost a work of fiction, and the latest in an increasingly excellent series.

Tess Gerritsen is onto a winner. She has likeable heroines in Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles. She has the ability to leave the reader spellbound and compelled by the stories she creates, desperate to know what is going to happen next. And she is virtually unrivalled in the genre at the moment, having left a good deal of crime writers in her wake.

Read this book. Do it now.
