Before I move on to the review, I want to share some exciting book news. Fallen, Karin Slaughter's newest book has finally arrived here at the library. People. I CAN BARELY CONTAIN MYSELF. I still have about half of a book left before I can start Fallen. I think I know what I'll be doing this weekend.
A Jane Doe's cleanly severed hand turns up in a Chinatown alleyway in Boston, and Rizzoli is called to investigate. A police search finds the rest of Jane Doe atop the roof of an abandoned building that all of Chinatown believes haunted and cursed due to the ground floor restaurant that was the scene of a mass murder/suicide two decades ago. The only clues are two silver hairs left on the Jane Doe and these clues lead to an unlikely and bewildering suspect. As Rizzoli and Isles delve deeper into the murder, bodies start piling up, and the investigation leads the detectives to re-examine the Chinatown murder/suicide as well as the disappearances of the daughters of two of the families of the victims.
The setting of Chinatown, an insular community weary of outsiders and police, adds an intriguing and mysterious layer to these bewildering murders with roots that go back two decades. Suspenseful and frightening, this page turner was hard to put down--this is one book that keeps some shocking revelations for its last pages.
I recommend you check out this book the next time you visit the library.
