82. The Mephisto Club

The Mephisto Club by Tess Gerritsen
Sixth Jane Rizzoli/Maura Isles mystery

Pages: 355
Finished: May 9, 2008
First Published: 2006
Genre: mystery, thriller
Rating: 3.5/5

Reason for Reading: next in the series

First sentence:

They looked like the perfect family.


Comments: Ritualistic killings and satanic messages lead Rizzoli and Isles down a twisted path as they search for the killer. Things hit too close to home when Dr. Isles wakes up to find a satanic message on her door. Lots of twists and turns take us deeper into this eerie plot with supernatural undertones. I always enjoy books in this series but this is probably my least favourite to date. There was a supernatural element dealing with the true nature of evil, which was left hanging and it just felt out of place in this series. I found the topic more than interesting but Gerritsen would have been better to have written a standalone with this demon-hunter plot rather than subjecting it to Rizzoli.

  1. I've really enjoyed the two books in this series that I've read. Someday I will get to "Mephisto", but I'll admit the subject matter isn't very appealing.
