2.0 out of 5 stars Tess Gerritsen - The Silent Girl, 31 July 2012
By 
This review is from: The Silent Girl: (Rizzoli & Isles series 9) (Paperback)
In this, the 9th in Gerritsen's Rizzoli and Isles series we're trying to uncover the mystery of a bunch of murders in Chinatown. Surly Boston cop Jane Rizzoli takes centre stage here as she heads up the investigation with her partner Barry Frost and newcomer to the team Johnny Tam. After a woman is found dead on a rooftop in Chinatown it soon becomes apparent that the murder is linked to a massacre from years ago.

I won't say much more on the plot as the synopsis here on Amazon will tell you enough. Unfortunately this one just wasn't up to Gerritsen's usual standard. The writing and the story itself is very unoriginal, at times it felt like Tess was following a 'paint by numbers' method for writing a crime book and it was all very pedestrian and ultimately, boring. I've read and enjoyed all of the previous books in this series but it seems that her efforts are becoming less and less impressive, especially when compared to the other leaders in the genre; Karin Slaughter, Patricia Cornwell etc. Read this one for a cheap quick thrill, or if you've followed the series, but there's nothing new to be found here.
