'Crime writing at its unputdownable, nerve-tingling best' HARLAN COBEN
In Boston, Detective Jane Rizzoli and Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles investigate a bizarre murder. A man has been found gutted and hanging in his home. When the remains of another victim are found, it is clear that this murderer has been at work for years, and not just in Boston.
Five years ago, a group of travellers set off on an African safari. None of them was seen again - apart from one woman who stumbled out of the bush weeks later, barely alive. The only woman to have seen the killer's face.
Has the 'safari killer' resurfaced in Boston? Jane is sent to Africa to find the one link between the two cases - the only survivor.
And convince her to face death once again...
*OUT NOW the gripping new thriller from Tess Gerritsen: THE SHAPE OF NIGHT*
In bestseller Gerritsen's spellbinding 11th novel featuring Det. Jane Rizzoli of the Boston PD and medical examiner Maura Isles (after 2012's Last to Die), Leon Gott, taxidermist and avid hunter, is eviscerated in his West Roxbury home, and the rare snow leopard pelt he was preserving is stolen. Rizzoli and Isles suspect that Gott's death is related to the Botswana safari on which his son vanished six years earlier and to a murderous sub-Saharan African cult and unsolved killings across the U.S. Gerritsen alternates the search for a cunning human predator with the first-person narrative of Millie Jacobson, the safari's only survivor, who adds to the visceral horror with her account of how a group of trapped, terrified people turned on each other. Backstory and character development are occasionally sacrificed to pacing, but Gerritsen excels at describing the harsh, often lethal majesty of the Okavango Delta in this satisfying page-turner sure to please longtime Rizzoli and Isles fans and new readers alike.

Interesting book that keeps one guessing
Tess Gerritsen is a writer one cannot get bored with. Her books are always on a different theme and weave so many different aspects into the story that it is similar to an exciting puzzle one has to finish. The Maura Isles and Jane Rizzoli partnership work exceedingly well even though they are as different as chalk many cheese and clash. The ending to Die Again was a complete surprise and not one I would have guessed.
Couldn't put it down
It's way past my bedtime and I've just finished this book that I started reading it around 4 hours ago. Great story, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Another gripping and fantastic story. From start to finish you are pulled into the world that is the story and it becomes impossible to put down! Highly recommended.
