Descripción

The latest enthralling case in Tess Gerritsen's New York Times bestselling Rizzoli & Isles series, the blockbuster books behind the smash hit TNT series.

Boston Detective Jane Rizzoli is on the case of a big game hunter found dead in his apartment, alone with the body of a beautiful white snow leopard he had recently been commissioned to procure and stuff for a high-profile museum in the area. Medical examiner Maura Isles connects the case to a number of seemingly unrelated deaths where the victims have all been found hanging upside down, the hallmark of a leopard's kill. Rizzoli follows the puzzling trail of clues all the way to Botswana, where she uncovers the unsolved mystery of a deadly camping safari four years prior. When she realizes the two cases are connected, Rizzoli must track down the sole survivor of the tragic trip to discover who-or what-is behind these gruesome deaths.

    Loved this book. It was the Rizzoli and Isles from the first few books, not the one from the television series. This story has Jane travelling from Boston to Botswana to crack the case of a Big Game Hunter and famous taxidermist who ends up hung and gutted in his own garage. The book jumps back and forth between a previous situation in Botswana six years earlier where a group of tourists, their guide and spotter all disappear on a safari into the back country and the murder and investigation in Boston. The story is easy to follow and I was enthralled by the Botswana story. A great read.

    I think this series gets better and better as it goes along. This time we travel back six years to Botswana in flashbacks to help find out what is going on in Boston. Are the two murders connected? What really happened six years ago. Very enjoyable. I listened to the audio and I had a hard time turning off the car and going to work because I wanted to keep listening. Can't wait for the next installment.

    Die Again is a thrill ride that is hard to put down with an amazing storyline with an interesting concept all together.

    Huge fan of the show and newer to the novels, I found DIE AGAIN to be a great thriller with all the elements that I adore from the series. It is great reading this book because I could visualize everything! That is what great writing does!! I may have to go back to the start of the series and start reading!!!

    This has been the best book in the series so far! I finished this in one day and could not put it down. The story had a lot of unexpected plot twists and turns. It takes the reader from Botswana to Boston tying together a series of murders committed over the course of several years. The book starts on African Safari and twists between current day and six years ago with ever interesting connections between a taxidermist in Boston, his son Elliot now missing from a trip in Africa, a safari guide named Johnny Posthumus, and a woman named Millie who was the sole survivor of her safari. Needless to say this is a must read for mystery/thriller fans. Reader received a complimentary copy from Library Thing Early Reviewers.

    I did not enjoy this book as much as Tess Gerritsen's other books. It took me a little bit to figure out that events that happened in Africa were six years earlier than the Boston events. I thought the book jumped around quite a bit and didn't necessarily tie up all the loose ends by the end of the book. I still thought the book was good, just not as good as her other books.

    I really tried to like this book but just couldn't. Not sure if it was me or the content...but it wasn't the Rizzoli and Isles I have come to enjoy reading about. Please Ms Gerritsen ...keep them in Boston and not have them trekking off to somewhere out of their element.

    This is the second Rizzoli & Isles novel by Tess Gerritsen that I've read, and I enjoyed reading both of them. If you enjoy watching the show on TV, you'll enjoy reading the books.

    This book was about people that went on a safari , in Africa. Around the same time in Boston, Rizzoli & Isles,was called to investigate a horrific crime scene. During their investigation, they believe it is connected to an unsolved murder from the past.

    My second book by Tess Gerritsen and again I was not disappointed. Rizzoli and Isles are on the case again. This is the 11th book in the series. I do need to catch up on all the other books. Not sure if I had missed anything by not reading the previous books.This case takes Rizzoli across state lines and out of the country. Who is murdering people by hanging them and gutting them? Similar to how hunters kill their prey. I found myself trying to figure out who the murderer was. I love when a book makes me think while reading and keeps me guessing until the end.

    Thank You Librarything for providing me with a copy of this book. I always love Tess' writing style, and this book is no different. I enjoyed the story, although I really liked the second half better. Regardless, this was a quick and easy read.

    This is very much in keeping with the rest of this series but somehow it did not hit the spot for me. I don't know if this is because I have now been introduced to the TV series so it seemed a bit slow and cumbersome or if it was just my mood. I could not fault the book and I would be interested to see some other reviews to see what they highlight as different as there is nothing i can pinpoint. I thought as someone who has been to Tanzania and read quite a few books with african references this was a good example of not overdoing the exotic while still noting some very key differences. I do like her characters and the recovering traveler would have been nice to see a bit more depth to.

    A solid thriller.
  • (4/5)
    On the TV series, which does not really follow the books, the actor who played Rizzoli's partner, Frost, a really great character, committed suicide and was killed off the show. I really hoped Gerritsen would not kill him off in the book, and she does not, which is a relief. In the books, Korchef has retired and was going to marry Rizzoli's mom, whose husband ran off with a bimbo. Then he comes back and expects everything to be the same. Her mom is miserable. She's not with the man she loves, but she is getting pressure from her two sons and her priest to stay with her husband, who is a real jackass and treats her poorly.This is by far the bloodiest of the Rizzoli and Isles books, and that is saying a lot. It opens with the murder of taxidermist/hunter Leon Gott, who is found in his garage, hanging from the ceiling, cut stem to stern, with most of his innards in a trash can along with the innards of a snow leopard, which is an endangered and rarely seen animal. He has been there for four days, and well, his two cats and dog have gotten hungry and feasted on him.It turns out that Gott was hired to stuff the leopard, who was euthanized at the zoo where he lived, and sold to a shock jock hunter radio host because the zoo needed the money. It is illegal to sell their pelts, no matter how old they are, however. While Rizzoli and Frost are at the zoo, one of the zookeepers is mauled to death by a cougar. Her death is deemed an accident, but there are a lot of questions and suspicions about her death.The book goes back and forth between the current story in Boston and one that took place in Botswana six-years ago. A group, a Japanese couple, a British couple, two young women, and a young man, go to "rough" it in the wild with a guide named Johnny and his assistant Clarence. One day they wake up to find the remains of Clarence's body outside the protective perimeter of the fence with bells. He was keeping overnight watch. Then another one of them is killed. Some of them begin to suspect Johnny of killing them. Millie, part of the now broken up British couple, cannot believe it and thinks they are crazy. Things go from bad to worse and only one of them will survive.Gott's estranged son, Elliott was on that trip. Since his death, Gott has regretted the way he treated his son. One Sunday afternoon, after the pelt is delivered to him, he calls two people, Elliot's girlfriend and the Johannesburg police department. The pelt is missing from his house. Did someone steal it because of its value, or for some other demented reason? The same night Gott dies, Elliot's girlfriend is murdered too. As they dig, they find cases similar to the way Gott died. Was it an animal right's group making an example of hunters or something so unthinkable and sinister who would believe it?This is a really great book, even with all the blood and guts. You will never guess the endgame. There are so many twists and turns and false leads that seem so promising, yet misleading you from the truth. Rizzoli and Isles are up against a serious killer who would not blink at killing either one of them if they get too close to finding him out. By the way, for those who doubt the ending is possible, do not just take my word for it (I have read up on it) but remember that Gerritsen is an MD and knows what she is talking about.

    Received as Early Reviewer Flashing between current and 6 years previous, we are taken on an African Safari and living with the aftermath of the experience.Of the Rizoli & Isles books I have read, this is my least favorite. The story attempts to lead you in one direction, and then twists into a completely different one.While it is still enjoyable, it failed to hit me with an "Ah Ha!" moment.
  • (3/5)
    Tess Gerritsen's Rizzoli and Isles series presents a thrilling race to find the killer. The killing starts 6 years in the past, when a group of people go on a safari in Africa. One by one, the people are killed, and one of the women runs into the bush to escape, and against all odds she survives. Then killings start in the Boston area, and the team of Rizzoli and Isles must find this killer who guts his victims. The characters are dimensional, but could use more development. The setting propels this novel to greater heights, such as the description of Africa. As usual, Isles seems so unemotional, and Rizzoli the extreme opposite. I have waited a long time to read the next book in this series.

    This was such an intense mystery. I've not read this author before so I was not familiar with her style of writing. I found her descriptions of murder scenes to be a bit gory but all in all, I devoured the book to find out who the culprit really was. Thank you LibraryThing for choosing me to review this book.

    I received this book as an early review. It did not disappoint. The story of Rizzoli and Isles continues to develop and have some great twists and turns. The mystery continued through the very end! Keep the stories coming!

    Rizzoli and Isles investigate the death of man who is a famous hunter and taxidermist.He is gutted and displayed like a hunter's fresh kill. The story line regularly flips back six years to a group of people in a tourist safari group that disappeared six years ago in Africa. Like most books that use differing timelines, it took a while to get used to the change of scenes, but Gerritsen does it masterfully, and the two merge into an amazing ending. I was disappointed in the ending, not because it wasn't great, but because I was wrong about who the real villain turned out to be!Great suspense read, one of Gerritsen's best.

    Although I've been an avid fan of the TV series "Rizzoli & Isles," I've never before read any of the books. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. The characters were almost the same as on TV, and just as likable. The story centers around a gruesome murder in present day, with flashbacks to murders on a safari in the past. They are of course connected. The fun of the story is in trying to figure out how and why. I thought I had the answer a couple of times, but the author kept me guessing right up to the end. I received this book from Early Reviewers, and I'm glad I made this choice. I might even read more of the series.
  • (4/5)
    It's hard to remember anymore which came first, although of course, it was the books. The tv show does a great job running a sort of parallel universe to the books, things definitely are different thatn the written form. Another solid entry to the long list of Rizzoli and Isles novels.
  • (5/5)
    I have always enjoyed Tess Gerritsen and this book was not exception. In fact, I finished it in 2 days! Rizzoli & Isles has always been enjoyable works, and I found this one to be even better going from South Africa to Boston and connecting the stories even though they were years apart. Would highly recommend to everyone.

    Tess Gerritsen's latest release, Die Again, is the eleventh entry in her successful Rizzoli and Isles series. Jane Rizzoli is a Boston homicide detective and Maura Isles is the medical examiner. They're are an engaging duo that are the perfect vehicle for Gerritsen's well imagined crimes.Die Again is told in two narratives - one past and one present. The past tells the story of a group of tourists being picked off one by one on a safari vacation in Botswana. Present day finds Rizzoli and Isles with a murder on their hands that might have connections to that ill fated trip...The dual narrative was intriguing - I almost think the Botswana story would have made a great book on its own. The narrator of the trip - Millie - was a strong character that I really enjoyed.Gerritsen is a retired physician, which gives the medical and physical aspects of her plots that added dose of reality - as well as vivid descriptions.The wild game aspect of the book was well researched and I learned quite a bit about predators. Although predators aren't always four footed! I did find I had guessed the 'whodunit' before the end of book, but this didn't detract from my enjoyment at all.The personal lives of Rizzoli and Isles continues to evolve, providing an excellent and believable ongoing secondary storyline.When this series came out, I was quickly hooked on it and await each new entry. Rizzoli and Isles is also a successful television show. I watched it once - and that was enough for me. It was just too 'entertainment' for me. I prefer this pair on the written page with my own mental images of the characters.Die Again could be read as a stand alone, but this is a series worth starting at the beginning.

    Six years ago, a group of travellers visit Bostwana on a real life African safari. None are seen again except one, Millie who survives.In Boston Jane Rizzoli and Maure Isles are called in to investigate a bizarre killing, a man has been found gutted and hung. Has the safari killer come to Boston.As always with books that are a series I do prefer to read them in order as they do follow on, and I feel that the reader will get to know the characters. Some of the books in the series featuring Jane and Maura for me have been good but there has been the odd one that hasn't quite hit the mark. This book however was a cracking read and maybe the best of the whole set.All of the books are gory in nature and with the subject content of this one it has to be the goryist of them all. The story was gripping and kept me turning the pages. This book could be read as a stand alone thriller but I am glad that I have read them all. I hope that Ms Gerritsen churns more out like this one.

    This book contains repeated graphic descriptions of [animal] butchery, along with several hoary old chestnuts of carnivore 'arguments'. People sensitive to such matters might want to avoid this one. Fast paced, relatively free of silly spiritual/supernatural nonsense (there is mention of an ancient cult, which dwindles off into nothing), with dual narration. The plot is engaging enough, although dedicated mystery / crime readers will recognize the red herring very early on and have a good idea of how it will end. I was dissatisfied with that predictable end, because you follow the hunt for this person all through the book, and literally find out nothing about them whatsoever. There's no background, no information, just...nothing. All in all, this was enjoyable because it was good to be back in Jane & Maura's world for a while, even in a highly predictable plot.

    This book had everything I've grown to expect in a Tess Gerritsen novel. It kept me turning pages until the end in one sitting. Harrowing. Gripping. Frightening as all hell. Loved it!

    I've been a fan of Tess Gerritsen's writing for a long time, well before the popular Rizzoli & Isles TV show based on this series. But now I also watch the show, and at first had a bit of trouble untangling the two. There are slight differences in the characters and their relationships, where the TV show took a different route. This is no reflection on Gerritsen's writing at all, just an observation. Reading a book series and also watching the related TV series can create a bit of disorientation, so be prepared to put the show out of your mind as much as possible.One of the many things I love about Gerritsen's writing is the way she immerses her stories within an vast amount of research and social statements, while never once weighing us down with facts or preaching from a pedestal. With Die Again, she tackles Africa, a wild land where the big cats are both revered and exploited. We travel there, not like everyday tourists, but straight into the bush where predators, both human and animal, rule. True to Gerritsen's style, this story is multi-layered. Beyond her ability to immerse us in a new place, she gives us characters with depth and a plot with twists we don't see coming. This book is absolutely one of Gerritsen's best. I think it works well as a stand-alone for those of you who haven't read the previous books in this series.* I was provided with an advanced review copy from Ballantine Books via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. *
  • (5/5)
    A wonderful addition to an excellent series; I read it in one day and now I'm sad that it's over! Wild animals, safaris, zoos, hunters and anti-hunters, and of course, murder. Gerritsen continues to develop her characters and her plots never disappoint. Highly recommended.
  • (5/5)
    Great book. A murder mystery that takes spans two continents and many cities. Isles is struggling with her feelings about her biological mother and contemplating changing jobs. Hunters are being hunted, people on safaris and in the US are becoming the prey for the killer. The lone survivor of the killer is found but is afraid to come forward to help, but does so after Rizzoli and her husband travel to Africa to talk to her. There are many twists and turns before the killer is identified when he comes face to face with one of his victims. I love the Rizzoli and Isles books. Tess Gerritsen is a great writer and I look forward to reading her next adventure with Rizzoli and Isles.
