The third installment in the Rizzoli and Isles series, finally, focuses primarily on medical examiner Maura Isles. With the arrival of her ex-husband more is revealed about Maura's life before she moved to Boston. Case-wise, Jane and Maura investigate a brutal attack inside a convent, which leaves one nun dead and another battling for her life. Also found is a woman with no face, no hand or feet - could the two cases be connected?
The characterization is spot on, and there are plenty of twist and turns within the plot that kept me reading. Nothing is ever simple, and the real culprit is always hidden away until the last few chapters. A fantastic read.
