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.
"A captivating and seductive tale exploring the dark embrace of
grief and guilt, reminding us that nothing can haunt us as
insidiously as our personal demons. This is the incomparable
Gerritsen at her finest!" * SYLVIA DAY *
"Beguiling! Gerritsen is at her atmospheric best in this spine-tingling tale of a lone woman, an old house, and all the secrets everyone tries to hide." * LISA GARDNER *
"A close-knit community, a gothic house, and a shadowy stranger inside . . . I love Tess's writing and The Shape Of Night is as compulsive as it gets." * Lesley Kara, author of THE RUMOUR *
"Curl up in your favorite reading chair and let Tess Gerritsen whisk you away to a coastal town reminiscent of Daphne Du Maurier's best settings. As the chills run down your spine, and the creeping sense of danger curls your toes, don't say I didn't warn you: you are in for a dark and sexy night, and you will be up very late with Tess' twisted, haunting tale." * IRIS JOHANSEN *
"Reminiscent of the best of du Maurier, this modern gothic is eerie, tantalizing, spine-tingling, and sensual . . . an altogether delicious read." * SANDRA BROWN *
