In the murky shadows of an alley lies a female’s severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, the body nearly decapitated. Two strands of silver hair — not human — cling to her body. They are Rizzoli’s only clues, but they’re enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make a startling discovery: This violent death had a chilling prequel. Nineteen years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead. One woman connected to that massacre is still alive: a mysterious martial arts master who knows a secret she dares not tell, a secret that lives and breathes in the shadows of Chinatown. A secret that may not even be human. Now she’s the target of someone, or something, deeply and relentlessly evil. Cracking a crime resonating with bone-chilling echoes of an ancient Chinese legend, Rizzoli and Isles must outwit an unseen enemy with centuries of cunning — and a swift, avenging blade.

Great Writer - Not so great narration
The story was worth the listen once I got used to the narration. The Narration is hurried and often robotic. I hope narrator is changed for the next book.
Can't stay Silent
I loved everything about this book. Normally I enjoy Brad Thor novels, and this is my first attempt at a Tess Gerritsen novel. All I can say is give me more. Great story telling, great suspense. I just purchased Ice Cold (I'm working backwards).
