In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they?re stranded with no help in sight. As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned.

The town's previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness ? someone who is watching Maura and her friends. Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura's charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend.

As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless ? and the chilling truth about Maura's fate.

About the author

Biography of Gerritsen, Tess

Tess Gerritsen is the author of several successful medical thrillers. Gerritsen began writing as a means of relaxation from the stressful life of a physician and ultimately abandoned her career as an internist. Her books, such as Life Support and Bloodstream, deal with highly ethical dilemmas in a complex and hypnotizing manner. Bloodstream, which is primarily about the selling of human organs on the black market, also explores the subjects of youth violence and parents who become afraid of children.

Gerritsen was born on June 12, 1953 in San Diego and attended Stanford University and the University of California, San Francisco. In addition to her medical stories, she is the author of several romantic suspense novels published as part of the "Harlequin Intrigue" series. She is the author of the popular Rizzoli and Isles series of books; this series will be a made-for-TV series as well in the Fall of 2011. Books in this series include The Surgeon, Body Double, Ice Cold, The Silent Girl and Last to Die.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-04-15)

Boston medical examiner Maura Isles is in Wyoming for a medical conference when she meets a former college classmate and decides to go off on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip with him and his friends. Their journey goes awry when they are stranded during a snowstorm in a remote area where something strange has happened. When one of the companions is severely injured during an attempt to escape the wilderness, Isles is placed in further danger. Det. Jane Rizzoli and FBI agent Gabriel Dean, along with Father Daniel Brophy, travel from Boston to rescue Isles and solve the mystery.

Verdict: The taut suspense and vivid depictions that are hallmarks of Gerritsen's writing are evident in her eighth Rizzoli and Isles thriller (after The Keepsake), although this one feels a bit stretched, with one too many plot twists and one too many villains. But series fans will be on the edge of their seats, while the July premiere of the TNT television series based on these characters and starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander may raise new interest in this and Gerritsen's earlier works.

Book description

In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they’re stranded with no help in sight. As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages.

The town’s previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness — someone who is watching Maura and her friends. Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura’s charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend.

The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless — and the chilling truth about Maura’s fate.
