This review is from: Vanish (Rizzoli & Isles 5) (Paperback)For those of you who enjoy chilling, well-written thrillers and still haven't read Gerritsen I have only one thing to say: oh, how I envy you! You have still so much unputdownable reading to do! So don't wait and treat yourself to some goosebumps, sleepless nights and breathless page-turning.
'Vanish' is my fifth book by Gerritsen and the second one read in one sitting and well into the early morning. I decided to follow Rizzoli and Isles series in order (i.e. the Surgeon, the Apprentice, the Sinner and Body Double) and I would advise one to do the same as one really gets to know the main characters. Detecitve Jane Rizzoli and Dr Maura Isles might be for some readers just a background for gruesome crimes, but for me the crime wouldn't be the same without them! They carry the plot brilliantly and always with a dose of humour.
In this book, dr Isles skips a heartbeat when a corpse of a beautiful Jane Doe in the morgue opens her eyes. She is even more astonished when the very same woman kills a security guard and takes her hostage a short time after she is transported to the hospital - the same one where Jane Rizzoli is about to deliver a baby. But things will get even more complicated and there are a couple of plot twits along the way. All in all, it's a gripping story but probably the least believeable from the ones by Gerritsen I read. But if you are willing to accept a couple of coincidences and Rizzoli solving the crime with a crying baby in her arms, you should be in for some engrossing reading.
