Review of "Body double". I never realised the tv-series "Rizzoli and Isles" is based on a series of novels


I never realised the tv-series "Rizzoli and Isles" is based on a series of novels written by Tess Gerritsen (Dutch surname comes from her husband's family according to internet).

My neighbour Carla gave me a paperback of "Body double" published in 2004. She warned me she had read it in one go as it was that good. Well I got a inflamed throat so I was not going anywhere anyway.

Doctor Maura Isles comes home one evening from a conference in Paris to find her whole street flooded by policecars and upset neighbours. A lady is found shot in a car and that woman looks exactly like Maura. Maura was adopted so we all jump to the conclusion there might be a family link between those two women.

Then Maura herself gets threatened and this urges her and policewoman Jane Rizzoli to dig into the past.

The book is a very good read and makes you think about how much nature and nurture contributes to how a person develops.

If you are into detective novels this is a 5 stars out of 5.



Dit boek is ook vertaald in het Nederlands en te koop bij Bol.com.
