Another gripping well written thriller with Rizolli in the middle of all the action. We see her as the usual tough cop but also see a warmer side to her with her relationship with Dean.
Gerritsen's medical background gives the novel a very realistic authenticity. A great ending but perhaps a bit too rushed. Well told yet a bit too similar to The Surgeon and not as good. Onto the next novel, The Thriller.
One of the best books I've read. Couldn't put it down
Enjoyed this book. Really kept my attention!
the story continues from "The Surgeon" ... not the same level of suspense as the original book and seemed a little incomplete with an abrupt ending
for me, Jane still does not feel like the main character and Dr. Isles is introduced and only plays a minor role in this story.
looking forward to see how these characters are developed
I enjoyed Gerritsen's previous novel, The Surgeon, but it wasn't at all as heart racing or addicting as The Apprentice. Once I had gotten a good thirty or fourty pages in I couldn't put it down. The reason I liked The Surgeon was because it made you think, but the Apprentice does all of that and more. Very well written, and planned out. Sometimes I feel like when reading a mystery that at the end when you discover the perp there wasn't enough information for you to have even guessed who it was, and I find that irritating and gives the writter a lazy-like personna for not giving you a solvable mystery book, but Gerritsen; thankfully; doesn't do that. I did feel that when ever there was a corpse in sight Gerritsen seemed to give the same description of the bloated belly and portruding veins, it seemed kind of repetitive and I found myself skipping a few sentences whenever I saw the word bloated. Good book though.
This was very enjoyable. The Rizzolli character was more relateable and less whiney. Glad I stuck with the series. On to #3!
G&M recommended The Silent Girl - this is an earlier one in the series.
...wow , read this yesterday, stayed up late to finish. Well written mystery, serial killer, good dialogue, good medical and police info. Different POV's used, including that of the main killer - via his thoughts and letters he had written. Good twist at the end.
Will read the first in the series - the Surgeon.
And download the first in the TV series - Rizzolo and Isles, based on this.
