    Why has it taken me so long to get back to this series am asking myself the question Tess Gerritsen is the madam of this genre she has all the right moves to keep the reader glued to every page.The Silent Girl by Tess Gerritsen was a very atmospheric read Set in China Town a young woman is found in an ally with her hand missing decapitated Jane Rizzoli enlists the help of Johnny Tam to help find out how she died as he knew the ins outs of the China Town district Years earlier a mass killing happ [...]

  5. Steve says:
    I think I ve read all of Tess Gerritsen s books, and this may be her best yet By using her Asian heritage and over the top humor and risks, she s produced a book that has almost a graphic novel feel, but sits well on her Rizzoli Isles shelf at the same time.After finding a dead woman with a severed hand on the roof of a building, Rizzoli Isles find themselves following an invisible killer out of Chinese folklore and an equally invisible and implacable hero from the same source The dead woman se [...]

    All day I have been watching the girl.What an impressive opening line the best crime starts with a great hook, and this one drags you straight in by the hair.When a hand is found in a Chinatown alley in downtown Boston, Geritsen s brilliant detective Jane Rizzoli climbs to a nearby rooftop and finds the hand s owner a woman whose throat has been slashed so deeply that her head is severed The murder of this woman with no ID links to a horrifying murder suicide that happened nineteen years earlier [...]

    I was a little concerned before I started to read The Silent Girl, that now that I ve been watching Rizzoli and Isles, I d picture the actress as opposed to the picture I had made in my mind of Jane, Frost, and Maura I m glad that when I started reading, my character s that I see in my head were still firmly there I enjoyed the book very much I liked learning about China Town and Chinese legends Jane hasn t changed much Maura s a mess IT seems to me, that this many books into the series, or a s [...]

    I received this book from the Vine program.I have been a fan of Tess Gerritsen since I met her at a book signing about 10 years ago I truly believe that she is one of the best thriller writers.After a woman is found murdered in the Chinatown section of Boston, Detective Jane Rizzoli follows the trail of the killer, leading her to an atrocious massacre from 19 years prior As she puts clues of the current case together, Jane soon learns about the mysterious disappearance of several teenage girls w [...]

    Ok, so my library now charges 1 for New Hot Picks and this was soooo NOT worth that dollar I really have enjoyed Gerritsen s writing styleup until this book.I did not like the progression, or lack of progression I should say with the whole Rizzoli Isles characters And why was this book called The Silent Girl It was about SEVERAL girlsssss Horrible and sick story about what happens to these girls, and you know what We are left to our own imagination to see what really happened to them, and just h [...]

    Characters from previous stories, and an interesting mystery in Chinatown combined to make this another good installment in the series

  12. Kim says:
    I ve read and mostly liked the previous novels in the Rizzoli Isles series some than others This is competently executed crime fiction, with both police procedural and thriller elements The forensic aspect of the series represented by the character of Dr Maura Isles plays less of a part in this novel This was a plus for me, because I m rather tired of detailed autopsy descriptions I am also rather tired of Dr Isles tortured and soap opera y love life Jane Rizzoli is an interesting character, bu [...]

    If you are like me then you are a huge Tess Gerritsen Fan and have or been dying to get your hands on her latest The Silent Girl I know I have It s been months since I first put my name on the waiting list at the library but it has finally arrived and I read it in one day The Silent Girl features three different time periods The first is Nineteen years ago , when it was said that a Chinese cook named Mr Wu went on a killing spree in a Chinatown restaurant and murdered five people and then shot h [...]

  14. Kaje Harper says:
    Tess Gerritsen writes excellent, complex and well plotted mysteries with a police procedural bent which are right up my alley This is no exception While part of a series, this book could work as a stand alone although you would miss some of the past events that drive character interactions The only thing keeping this book from really hitting five stars for me is that there is just a little coolness to the writing style I don t feel the characters emotions quite as deeply as I would like That s p [...]

    I discovered Tess Gerritsen s wonderful Rizzoli and Isles series last year with the excellent novel Ice Cold Then of course I started reading the earlier novels so it was a pleasure to go forward with The Silent Girl In this outing Gerritsen visits her Chinese roots and sets the story in Boston s Chinatown As I live in an area, Vancouver, that has a huge Chinese population and a legendary Chinatown that is both intriguing and mysterious I was ready for the mysteries of Boston s Chinatown Gerrits [...]

    my absolute, absolute, absolute favourite of tess s and this has nothing to do with my asian heritage feeling a love i cant quite put into words right now this book, for me, contained just the right elements the suspense, the twists, the action everything tess added just enough clues in the story hidden in the details just as i like it for you to play whodunnit, but threw in twists to throw you off your game, only to serve with an ending that i did not anticipate also, the tension between maura [...]

  17. Dustin Crazy little brown owl says:
    Tess has once again written a compelling mystery and woven all the threads in a beautiful tale I felt Rat who we met in the previous book, ICE COLD played an important role in this story.My favorite Rizzoli Isles novel is The Keepsake book 7 in the series my second favorite in the series is ICE COLD book 8 I think The Silent Girl ties with Vanish book 5 as my 3rd favorite Body Double is a good one too Oh Hell, they are all so damn good because TESS GERRITSEN is AMAZING Join us in the Tess Gerrit [...]

    Another awesome installment in the Rizzoli and Isles series Tess Gerritsen has an amazing ability to thrill and scare you, every time she puts pen to paper A ghost tour was winding it s way through Chinatown in downtown Boston late one night, the tour leader taking the group into a dark alley, when suddenly a child, who had been whinging about it being boring , let out a scream They all thought the bloodied hand was a prop for the show, until it was looked at closely, then they all started screa [...]

    B at AAR, so 4.5 stars This month s TBR prompt, catching up on a series, took me in something of a non romance direction As I contemplated my little wall of TBR, I realized my series avoidance of the past few years had left me with only a few that needed catching up Since I ve been loving the Rizzoli Isles books by Tess Gerritsen, I decided to jump into that world again My TBR read for February was 2011 s The Silent Girl.The mystery running through this book takes readers on an unforgettable jou [...]

  22. Donna says:
    I ve wanted to read a Rizzoli and Isles book for a long time and now that I ve read my first one, I will be reading I liked this book It was creatively done There was always something new happening, and some new clue given It was a fun read I also liked the characters Rizzoli had a bigger role than Isles I m not sure if that is normal, but it all seemed to work well together I also liked the ending.even though it had a red bow It was perfectly suited to the story.

    I m actually surprised at the fact that The Silent Girl is the 26th book I ve read this year considering that the last few months I ve been studying ceaselessly for the Romanian Baccalaureate I ll be taking at the end of June As I said in a previous review, Tess Gerritsen is one of my favourite contemporary authors I wonder whether she has ever written a bad novel because once again I found myself completely captivated by one of her novels and incapable of putting it down Speaking of the Rizzoli [...]

  27. StarMan says:
    4 times out of 5, even Gerritsen s lesser tales beat anything churned out by the Patterson Author X quality book quick money printing machine And this isn t one of her lesser tales it s probably in the midrange of her talents THE SILENT GIRL, for the average crime mystery thriller reader, is mostly pretty darn good I give it 3 blood splatters, but not quite 4 YAYs NAYs view spoiler YAY A Chinatown connection, a 20 year old multi murder, a new police officer, and a possibly non human killer view [...]

  28. David Highton says:
    A murder in Chinatown sets off a complex plot involving a multiple murder from 19 years earlier Rizzoli is resolute and insightful in pursuit, Isles less involved and marginalised because of a court case against a police officer.
