“Crime writing at its unputdownable, nerve-tingling best.”—Harlan Coben

Boston medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles is shocked to discover that the murdered woman looks exactly like her. For Maura, an only child, a DNA test confirms the startling fact: the mysterious doppelgänger is in fact her twin sister. Now an already bizarre homicide investigation becomes a disturbing excursion into a past full of dark secrets and twisted truths. It is a journey that leads Maura to the mother she never knew—an icy and cunning woman who gave Maura life . . . and who just might have a plan to take it away.

Customer Reviews of Body Double: A Rizzoli & Isles Novel


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Body Double Love this series

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Put it Down I bought this because I love the television show based on the Rizzoli and Isles books. There are differences, and I was a little worried I wouldn't like the book but it was wonderful, full of suspense and interesting twists. I'm definitely going to get more books by Tess Gerritsen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Page Turner Maura Isles returns from a conference to find a crime scene in front of her apartment building. The victim was shot in her car on the street. Everyone is shocked to find that the victim looks exactly like Maura and turns out to be a twin sister she didn't know she had. Maura sets off to follow her sister's footsteps and find out more about her as the police look for her killer. In the meantime, another crime is being committed as we get glimpses of a woman who is being held captive in a box underground. This is another fine entry in the series. A real page-turner that kept me guessing until the end. Maura and Jane seem to be sharing time as the main character now and I'm not sure if I like that as I much prefer Jane. At first I thought the twin sister angle was a bit far-fetched but the plot won me over quickly and I really enjoyed this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read!! This is the first book I've read about Tess and it was just awesome. Gripping book. Suspense/mystery and hard to put down. The writing is so good that you can visualise the story and be in their shoes and feel what they feel. It's a must read and I am buying more of her books which I can't wait to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Everyone Should Read This Wow. That's all I can say. This book was just amazing. I don't usually like suspense/murder/mystery books, but Body Double was so captive. I couldn't put it down. No matter how badly I wanted to put the book down (I have a weak stomache), I coudn't! I kept imaganing being in the characters' shoes, that I usually had to remind myself that they weren't real. It made me sad though, because if the characters were real, I would've LOVED to meet them. The way the story is written makes the book even better. It's like piecing together a puzzle. You start with all different pieces, but bit by bit you find out what's going on and the ending is even better! I was expecting a predictable ending, but I was so shocked that I couldn't cry at the end! (I tend to cry at the end of most good books whether it's because I'm happy for them or sad) Body Double is by far the best book I have ever read, and I can't wait to read Vanish. Go Tess!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must read! This is Tess Gerritsens best novel yet!! I couldn't put it down. I didn't think she could beat The Apprentice and the Sinner, but she's done it again. Gerritsen keeps you turning page after page to find out what plot turn is next. I can't wait to read Vanish!
