A year after the surgeon was arrested, (last novel) and with many emotional and physical scars later Detective Rizzoli is called to another murder scene with chilling similarities to the Surgeon Case. After the investigation gets under way FBI agent Gabriel Dean shows up and is given all access to the investigation. Jane does not understand why he was called. Her puzzlement only increases as he seems to mysteriously know where to look for evidence and what kind of evidence to look for. The next strange thing: Warren Hoyt "the surgeon" escapes from prison and appears to be working with the Dominator. A lot of shocking twists ahead! Well worth your time!

Yup, she is in the sophomore slump!

The Surgeon was great and I think Ms. Gerritsen's publisher wanted another book fast...too fast. This book is a little clumsy and a lot predictable. Not a horrible read, but not one I would recommned as an intro into Gerritsen's work.

    Repetitive and redundant!

    I really enjoyed The Surgeon it was well written, suspenseful and kept me reading long after my eyes were tired. I can not say that for the sequel The Apprentice. The book is 282 pages but could easily have been reduced to 100 pages had the author left out all the redundant pondering of the main character Rizzoli. The majority of the story is focused on Rizzoli's "feelings". I also did not enjoy the historical reflections, by the killer, of how women have been brutalized over time. Really disappointed I had hoped to find a new series to enjoy.
