The haunting new standalone novel from Tess Gerritsen, bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series.
Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. Her thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles. But Tess's interests span far more than medicine and crime. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena.
"I defy you to read the first chapter and not singe your fingers reading all the rest. It's that compelling. It's that good." * DAVID BALDACCI * "Tess Gerritsen is at the top of her game. Compelling and satisfying, this eerie, suspenseful novel had me turning the pages until the early hours." * Paula Daly * "Deeply creepy, seriously clever." * Sharon Bolton *
