Overview

In this Rizzoli & Isles short story from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen, a bizarre death comes with a supernatural twist. Homicide cop Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles have seen their fair share of mortal crimes, but the death of Kimberly Rayner may qualify as inhuman in more ways than one. When corpse of the emaciated seventeen-year-old girl is discovered next to an empty coffin in an abandoned church, mysterious bruises around the throat suggest foul play. Caught fleeing the scene is the victim’s closest friend, Lucas Henry, an equally skeletal, pale teenager who claims he’s guilty only of having a taste for blood—a craving he shared with Kimberly. But the victim’s distraught father doesn’t believe in vampires, only vengeance. And now, another life may be at risk unless Rizzoli and Isles can uncover the astonishing truth.
 
Includes an excerpt from Tess Gerritsen’s Rizzoli & Isles novel The Silent Girl

This is a good short story. I enjoyed it and even though it was short it was a mystery tht was enjoyable to try and solve.

I LOVE Tess Gerritsen books but was disappointed in this short story. It didn't feel like she had written it. The style felt different to me. It was almost as though someone else wrote it for her. The plot was pretty good but seemed to end abruptly. I can't wait to read her new book though. Love the show too.

Really nice and meant for mystery lovers. It may be short, but it is epic!

Gerritsen's short story provides a short, entertaining intro to the characters Rizzoli and Isles. A fun read for fans of the show/book series or mystery readers in general

Yes, it is a short story, but how can you go wrong with Rizzoli and Isles? It is not meant to be the great American novel. It is simply a fast paced story that is fun to read. Best wishes, Dave Wile

I liked this - it had the elements of Gerritsen's novels, but in a very short and focused format. I have to say, though, that I'm sick of all the vampire/gothic stuff that's so prevalent now. I hope the author got it out of her system with this book.

The only thing I didn't love was that it was too short would love a longer storyline, but all and all the storyline was good and it kept you reading I finished it in one sitting that's how good it was.

Maura solves it through her scienific findings. A good little short story.

This short story was great. Really wish it could of been a book. T.G. did a great job on it! I watch all of Rizzoli & Isles, which then had gotten me interested in the books to keep me going on the shows off season. Really hope the show & books don't stop, they're so wonderful, and well worth the time to read & watch!
