A blessed event becomes a nightmare for pregnant homicide
detective Jane Rizzoli when she finds herself on the wrong
side of a hostage crisis in this timely and relentless new
thriller from the New York Times bestselling author
A nameless, beautiful woman appears to be just another
corpse in the morgue. An apparent suicide, she lies on a
gurney, awaiting the dissecting scalpel of medical
examiner Maura Isles. But when Maura unzips the body bag
and looks down at the body, she gets the fright of her
life. The corpse opens its eyes.
Very much alive, the woman is rushed to the hospital,
where with shockingly cool precision, she murders a
security guard and seizes hostages . . . one of them a
pregnant patient, Jane Rizzoli.
Who is this violent, desperate soul, and what does she
want? As the tense hours tick by, Maura joins forces with
Jane's husband, FBI agent Gabriel Dean, to track down the
mysterious killer's identity. When federal agents suddenly
appear on the scene, Maura and Gabriel realize that they
are dealing with a case that goes far deeper than just an
ordinary hostage crisis.
Only Jane, trapped with the armed madwoman, holds the key
to the mystery. And only she can solve it--if she survives
