Evil exists. Evil walks the streets. And evil has spawned a diabolical new disciple in this white-knuckle thriller from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen.

PECCAVI
The Latin word is scrawled in blood at the scene of a young woman’s brutal murder: I HAVE SINNED. It’s a chilling Christmas greeting for Boston medical examiner Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli, who swiftly link the victim to controversial celebrity psychiatrist Joyce O’Donnell–Jane’s professional nemesis and member of a sinister cabal called the Mephisto Club.

On top of Beacon Hill, the club’s acolytes devote themselves to the analysis of evil: Can it be explained by science? Does it have a physical presence? Do demons walk the earth? Drawing on a wealth of dark historical data and mysterious religious symbolism, the Mephisto scholars aim to prove a startling theory: that Satan himself exists among us.

With the grisly appearance of a corpse on their doorstep, it’s clear that someone–or something–is indeed prowling the city. The members of the club begin to fear the very subject of their study. Could this maniacal killer be one of their own–or have they inadvertently summoned an evil entity from the darkness?

Delving deep into the most baffling and unusual case of their careers, Maura and Jane embark on a terrifying journey to the very heart of evil, where they encounter a malevolent foe more dangerous than any they have ever faced . . . one whose work is only just beginning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gerritsen always has a surprise. Read the Rizzoli & Isles in sequence. The character development is one of the best parts of this series. Right next to that is the moral dilemmas that characters face -sometimes with fierce conviction and sometimes with angst.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Demonic Drama I was a bit disappointed. I was kind of expecting more from Gerritsen. I am not particularly a fan of Satanic rituals etc.. I was hoping for something more along the lines of the Surgeon, which was much more down to earth one could say. That being said, I did get into it and actually wound up enjoying it. The end was above average, actually quite good. "Unexpected". One must wonder it Gerritsen has set up to produce a sequel.?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the Best of the Series Ritualistic killings and satanic messages lead Rizzoli and Isles down a twisted path as they search for the killer. Things hit too close to home when Dr. Isles wakes up to find a satanic message on her door. Lots of twists and turns take us deeper into this eerie plot with supernatural undertones. I always enjoy books in this series but this is probably my least favourite to date. There was a supernatural element dealing with the true nature of evil, which was left hanging and it just felt out of place in this series. I found the topic more than interesting but Gerritsen would have been better to have written a standalone with this demon-hunter plot rather than subjecting it to Rizzoli.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different for Gerritsen This was a good book, but some parts just got too much into religion/history and got boring. The plot was easy to figure out, but overall it was a good book. Rizzoli is becoming very hard to like with every book, and I think Tess has to lighten up on her a bit and make her a bit more likable. Hopefully the Bone Garden will be better.
