Random House, Inc. This ebook edition contains a special preview of Tess Gerritsen’s I Know a Secret.
Not even the icy temperatures of a typical New England winter can match the bone-chilling scene of carnage discovered at the chapel of Our Lady of Divine Light. Within the cloistered convent lie two nuns–one dead, one critically injured–victims of an unspeakably savage attacker. The brutal crime appears to be without motive, but medical examiner Maura Isles’s autopsy of the dead woman yields a shocking surprise: Twenty-year-old Sister Camille gave birth before she was murdered. Then another body is found, mutilated beyond recognition. Together, Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As long-buried secrets come to light, Maura Isles finds herself drawn inexorably toward the heart of an investigation that strikes close to home–and toward a dawning revelation about the killer’s identity too shattering to consider.
Baker & Taylor Investigating the brutal murder of one nun and the critical injury of another within a cloistered convent, as well the vicious killing and mutilation of an unknown woman, medical examiner Maura Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli stumble upon long-buried secrets that link these horrific crimes and a horror that strikes all too close to home. By the author of The Surgeon.
