Summary (cr: goodreads)

The's Pilgrim's Hospital's most unusual patient, and on this Saturday night a media circus is gathered to record every minute of her visit to the X-ray department. Crammed into the small CT scan room are reporters, TV cameras, a select group of medical technicians - and forensic pathologist Maura Isles. 

Maura is there becase the patient being scanned tonight isn't alive. She's probably been dead for centuries. She is, in fact, a mummy. 
As the CT scan proceeds, everyone in the room leans in close - and gasps in horror as an image of a bullet is revealed. Maura declares it a possible homicide and calls in Detective Jane Rizzoli. 

When the preserved body of a second victim is found - and then a third - it becomes all too clear that not only is a maniac at large but he is taunting them. And that, unless Maura and Jane can find and stop him, he will soon be adding yet another chilling piece to his monstrous collection

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Rizzoli and Isles series: The Surgeon, The Apprentice, The Sinner, Body Double, Vanish,

Like the other books before this, it was a gripping read. And like the other books, the twist made me exclaim at some point. I also like mysteries that weave from a historical background and  this novel's plot is one of it. This centers around an archaeologist, an archaeological dig and psychotic obsessive serial killers. I could read more of Jane Rizzoli in this and finally, I get to see how human her partner Barry Frost is, unlike his usual cheery, optimistic demeanor. Maura Isles helped with the plot but with minimal exposure. The only thing that I could say about her is that she should stop anything between her an Daniel Brophy (although its a waste because they have that chemistry together). He is a man she can't attain, she should consider Anthony Sansone instead.

Till the next read...
