The Silent Girl (Jane Rizzoli & Maura Isles #9) by Tess Gerritsen

Quote from Silent Girl: “Or maybe it’s the building. In Chinatown, they consider it haunted. They say when you step inside, evil attaches itself to you.” He looked at Jane. “And follows you home.”
First, I have to tell you that I am a huge fan of Tess Gerristen and that I have read all of her work. I think that she is one of the best mystery suspense thriller authors of this decade.
Silent Girl centers on a homicide that occurs in Chinatown in Boston, MA. A ghost tour guide and his group discover a severed hand. The hand is found outside the building where a grisly murder-suicide massacre occurred 19 years ago.  Once Rizzoli, Frost and an eager young Chinese recruit named Tam arrive on the scene they discover the rest of the body. It belongs to a beautiful young woman, whose car contains a GPS with two addresses.  One address belongs to a Chinese woman whose husband was murdered in the massacre and the other to the Detective who investigated it. As Detective Jane Rizzoli and Dr. Maura Isles investigate they find clues connecting the massacre to the mysterious disappear of two young girls. Someone or something is trying to seek revenge against a man wrongfully accused. Chinese folklore of the Monkey King and others make this an interesting read. The characters in this book are strong, lovable,  intelligent and Gerristen gives them depth.
This story was suspenseful and drew me in from the beginning keeping me on edge. Gerritsen attention to detail and medical knowledge make this book superb.

I give this book 4 coffee cups out of 5.
