Crime novelist Tess Gerritsen has a busy July planned!
On July 5th, her ninth Rizzoli and Isles mystery, The Silent Girl, is published. And just a week later, the second season of Rizzoli & Isles, based on her series characters, premieres on TNT. (The first season will be released on DVD on June 28th, and can be pre-ordered from Telemystery: Rizzoli & Isles.)
For fans of her mysteries or the crime drama -- and to promote both -- Gerritsen has written a short story featuring Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles titled "Freaks", which you can download for free!
Rizzoli and Isles have seen their fair share of mortal crimes, but the death of Kimberly Rayner may qualify as inhuman in more ways than one. When corpse of the emaciated seventeen-year-old girl is discovered next to an empty coffin in an abandoned church, mysterious bruises around the throat suggest foul play. Caught fleeing the scene is the victim’s closest friend, Lucas Henry, an equally skeletal, pale teenager who claims he’s guilty only of having a taste for blood — a craving he shared with Kimberly. But the victim’s distraught father doesn’t believe in vampires, only vengeance. And now, another life may be at risk unless Rizzoli and Isles can uncover the astonishing truth.
