Summary (cr: goodreads)

Within the walls of a cloistered convent, a scene of unspeakable carnage is discovered. On the snow lie two nuns, one dead, one critically injured - victims of a seemingly motiveless, brutally savage attack.

Medical examiner Maura Isles' autopsy of the murder victim yields a shocking surprise, but the case takes a disturbing twist. The body of another woman has been found. And someone has gone to a lot trouble to remove her face, hands and feet.

As long buried secrets are revealed so Dr Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, find themselves part of an investigation that leads to an awful, dawning realisation of the killer's identity..

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Rizzoli and Isles series: The Surgeon, The Apprentice

This would be the third book of the series but it would be the first book where Rizzoli and Isles would work together in a full blown operation. The case is about the tragic death of a young nun and the only nun that is a witness to the crime is comatose. Isles' point of view was dominating the story which I liked, it made me feel closer to her character. It was a welcome peek into her character for a change after knowing Rizzoli's character at the first two books. A lot happens in the story but it somehow weaves itself together in the end. What was supposed to be the center of the story somehow becomes something else altogether. It was also nice seeing how Rizzoli and Isles' characters develop into the new chapter in their lives.

Till the next read...
