Rizzoli and Isles

Tess Gerritsen

With the advent of the new TV series based on Tess Gerritsen’s mysteries, I decided to investigate,
since I was not familiar with Rizzoli and Isles. Set in Boston, the books feature detective Jane Rizzoli, and medical examiner Maura Isles. Of course, they are completely different in viewpoint and personality, and that creates the friction that makes things interesting. I read one interview with Ms. Gerritsen in which she said her personality was somewhat similar to that of Maura Isles. As you might expect the series differs somewhat from the books. You may want to pick up the first one, The Surgeon and see if you like the series.
