Synopsis

Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles—the inspiration for the hit TNT series—continue their crime-solving streak. 

The bestselling author of The Surgeon returns—and so does that chilling novel’s diabolical villain. Though held behind bars, Warren Hoyt still haunts a helpless city, seeming to bequeath his evil legacy to a student all-too-diligent . . . and all-too-deadly.

It is a boiling hot Boston summer. Adding to the city’s woes is a series of shocking crimes, in which wealthy men are made to watch while their wives are brutalized. A sadistic demand that ends in abduction and death.

The pattern suggests one man: serial killer Warren Hoyt, recently removed from the city’s streets. Police can only assume an acolyte is at large, a maniac basing his attacks on the twisted medical techniques of the madman he so admires. At least that’s what Detective Jane Rizzoli thinks. Forced again to confront the killer who scarred her—literally and figuratively—she is determined to finally end Hoyt’s awful influence . . . even if it means receiving more resistance from her all-male homicide squad.

But Rizzoli isn’t counting on the U.S. government’s sudden interest. Or on meeting Special Agent Gabriel Dean, who knows more than he will tell. Most of all, she isn’t counting on becoming a target herself, once Hoyt is suddenly free, joining his mysterious blood brother in a vicious vendetta. . . .

Filled with superbly created characters—and the medical and police procedural details that are her trademark—The Apprentice is Tess Gerritsen at her brilliant best. Set in a stunning world where evil is easy to learn and hard to end, this is a thriller by a master who could teach other authors a thing or two.

About the Author

It is pretty rare for someone to achieve a Medical Doctor degree, become a practicing physician, and a very successful author. That is the career path followed by Tess Gerritsen, an internationally bestselling author. Tess graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Anthropology, then her MD. from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco. From there, began her interesting journey.

Tess went to work as a physician in Honolulu, Hawaii, and during a maternity leave from that job, she wrote her first romantic suspense novel, Call After Midnight, which was followed by eight other such novels. She also wrote a screenplay, Adrift, which became a 1993 CBS movie starring Kate Jackson.

The author then began writing medical thrillers in 1996, with her novel, Harvest, which was her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. More than 15 books in the medical suspense genre followed. They were all aptly named, such as.....Life Support, Bloodstream, The Surgeon, The Bone Garden, and several others. Her books have been published in many countries, with over 30 million copies being sold internationally.

Tess Gerritsen's series of novels featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the very successful TNT television series, Rizzoli and Isles. She is now retired from medicine, and continues to write full time from her home in Maine.
