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.

(The ninth book in the Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles series)

It's been months since I've read a book that made me wish for the end of the meeting, the end of the project, the end of the work day, just so I could get back to the story. The Silent Girl reminded me how much fun it is to read a "can't put it down" book.

An excellent mystery novel, although you can determine most of the answers to the "puzzle", long before the conclusion, even the little twist at the end. None the less, it was an enjoyable read, Tess Gerritsen is an excellent writer.

This is a great audiobook read by someone either with or doing a great impression of a Boston accent, which adds to the authencity of the reading. Gerritsen fans, especially those of the Rizzoli and Isles series, will get caught up in this story weaving elements of the mythical Chinese Monkey King with the Irish mob and a massacre that occurred in a Chinese restaurant 19 years ago.

Tess is very consistent in writing good books. Not outstanding, but still quite good. This one is no exception. 7 of 10 for me.
