The Killing Place by Tess Gerritsen

Synopsis

He watches. Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming. Twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. The people who lived in them appear to have vanished, seemingly into thin air. He waits. Maura Isles is driving through the area with a group of friends when they find themselves trapped in a snowstorm. They stumble into the abandoned village to take shelter. But their nightmare has only just begun. They Disappear. Days later, Jane Rizzoli flies to Wyoming to search for her missing friend. A crashed vehicle has been found with four badly burned bodies still inside. Can one of the corpses be Maura's? Jane's hunt for the truth leads her to Kingdom Come. Where the person who was watching Maura now lies waiting for her ...

The continuation of the Rizzoli/Isles series sees Tess bring the books back on form. In this installment the plot moved along swiftly ending in a cracking twist which I didn't see coming. Throughout the story the author kept the tension level high, while conveying the desperation and emotions from the characters brilliantly. A real page turner which I couldn't put down, especially during the second half.

If you've enjoyed the rest of this series, this one will not disappoint. If you haven't read this series and are a fan of crime thrillers, I recommend you do!

9/10

The blurb sounded scary enough ~ don't know if I'm brave enough to read the whole book! Laughing Seriously though, that does sound scary. I think that sometimes thrillers can be more scary than gore~fests!

This was actually one of the more scary of the series, however they're not all so frightening! The first of the series is called The Surgeon, which I really think you both would enjoy. You can even download a sample on kindle lankylil, and you can download the free kindle app to your pc Weave to do the same! Wink

I haven't read the book. People kept telling me how scary the film was and as I'm a bit of a wuss, I thought I would be too ~ however, when I watched the film it didn't scare me at all ~ which really surprised me!

I think it can be scarier reading a book as our own imagination can make it more so than the film makers do!
