Rizzoli & Isles (Book Series)
Tess Gerritsen born June 12, is an American novelist and retired physician. Tess Gerritsen is the child of a Chinese immigrant and a Chinese-American seafood chef. While on maternity leave, she submitted a short story to a statewide fiction contest in the magazine Honolulu. Gerritsen claimed the story allowed her to deal with her own childhood turmoil, including the repeated suicide attempts of her mother. Inspired by the romance novels she enjoyed reading while working as a doctor, Gerritsen's first novels were romantic thrillers.
Thus far, eleven gritty and gruesome titles have been published in the Rizzoli and Isles series — the most recent being the brilliant new novel I Know A Secret. The Surgeon. A killer is targeting lone women, torturing and murdering them. The precision of his methods leads Detective Jane Rizzoli to suspect he is medically trained. Then Jane makes a terrifying discovery. Years ago a young woman was assaulted in a similar way.
