The Killing Place by Tess Gerritsen 

Another fantastic read from Gerritsen, it has the reader enthralled from the start. Part of the Rizzoli & Isles series, the Killing Place has all the usual characters in it and this time it is personal!

Maura Isles goes missing after joining friends for a skiing trip and that is all her friend Jane Rizzoli knows but she is sure that Maura wouldn’t just vanish as she is just not that type of woman. 

Maura and her friends have a minor road accident while driving through the snow and end up in a settlement called Kingdom Come. The entire village has been deserted and in a hurry, leaving the group feeling nervous about staying there. As time goes on it becomes obvious that something terrible has happened here and that they are not alone in the settlement! 

Can Maura escape to find help for them all or are they doomed to die in an abandoned place? Can Jane figure out what has gone on and save the day or this may just be the last she ever sees of her friend! 

One thing is certain for both women is that they will be lied to and manipulated in order to keep the truth of Kingdom Come buried. The race is now on to figure out the truth and remain safe.

A gripping read from the start, Gerritsen is always a great read for fans of the genre. New readers to Gerritsen, don’t feel you have to read the Rizzoli & Isles series from the start as I haven’t and I have done just fine.
