Tess Gerritsen – Body Double (Rizzoli & Isles #4)


Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

Boston medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles literally meets her match–and must face a savage serial killer and shattering personal revelations–in the brilliant new novel of suspense by the New York Times bestselling author of The Surgeon and The Sinner.

Dr. Maura Isles makes her living dealing with death. As a pathologist in a major metropolitan city, she has seen more than her share of corpses every day–many of them victims of violent murder. But never before has her blood run cold, and never has the grim expression “dead ringer” rung so terrifyingly true. Because never before has the lifeless body on the medical examiner’s table been her own.

Yet there can be no denying the mind-reeling evidence before her shocked eyes and those of her colleagues, including Detective Jane Rizzoli: the woman found shot to death outside Maura’s home is the mirror image of Maura, down to the most intimate physical nuances. Even more chilling is the discovery that they share the same birth date and blood type. For the stunned Maura, an only child, there can be just one explanation. And when a DNA test confirms that Maura’s mysterious doppelgänger is in fact her twin sister, an already bizarre murder investigation becomes a disturbing and dangerous excursion into a past full of dark secrets.

Searching for answers, Maura is drawn to a seaside town in Maine where other horrifying surprises await. But perhaps more frightening, an unknown murderer is at large on a cross-country killing spree. To stop the massacre and uncover the twisted truth about her own roots, Maura must probe her first living subject: the mother that she never knew . . . an icy and cunning woman who could be responsible for giving Maura life–and who just may have a plan to take it away.

Mana recenzija/My review

Kad Maura atgriežas no konferences Parīzē saistībā ar darbu, mājās viņu sagaida šoks un policijas uguņu gaismas. Kad citi ierauga Mauru, viņi ir šokā, un iemesls pavisam vienkāršs, visiem licies, ka nogalinātā ir viņa. Tik līdzīga ir mirusī! Diezgan daudz pārsteigumu un šokējošu jaunumu mūsu patoloģei.

Tas aizsāk pamatīgu notikumu virpuli, kurā Maura cenšas uzzināt par saviem vecākiem(adoptēta) un par sevi. Lai gan tiek vairākkārt brīdināta, ka patiesība var nebūt tik jauka kā cerēts, viņa paliek neatlaidīga. Vienīgais, kas drusku kaitināja, ka viņai tā iemīlēšanās/sajūtu rašanās visai ātra, varbūt mirkļu iespaidā.

Meklējumi iekustina arī citas izmeklēšanas – pazudušas personas, no kurām lielākā daļa grūtnieču tuvu dzemdību laikam, kā arī tiek atrasti skeleti. Šajā ziņā prologs visai intriģējošs! : )

Attiecībā par Ridzoli, viņa pat astotajā grūtniecības mēnesī turpina aktīvu izmeklēšanu (atšķirībā no citas Bostonas detektīves). Varētu domāt, ka pazudušo-nogalināto personu lietas viņu varētu kā nebūt ietekmēt, bet Ridzoli neļaujas tam un ir tāda kā vienmēr. Šķiet, ka attālums un karjeras attiecībās viņai nekaitē.

Ik pa brīdim dota iespēja iejusties jaunākās nolaupītās grūtnieces ādā. Arī šajā sižetiņā savi pavērsieni.


When Maura Isles comes home from medical conference in Paris she is shocked by all police in and around her house. When others see Maura, they are surprised because everyone that the victim is she. That’s how similar they are! Quite a lot surprising news for our medical examiner.

That is the start for a big avalanche of another events in which Maura tries to find out about her real parents (she was adopted) and about herself. Although she is warned that the truth might be painful she is still relentless. One thing that irritated was how fast she developed new romantic feelings, maybe just the effect of a moment(s).

Those searches shakes up some old missing person cases from which most are pregnant women close to their term, also some skeletons are found. In this case the prologue is intriguing! : )

But talking about Rizzoli even when she is eight months pregnant nothing can stop her from active investigation (differently from some other Boston detective). You would think that those missing-killed person cases would affect her somehow but she’s letting that to happen. Also it seems that the distance and carrier doesn’t have bad influence to her relationship.

From time to time the reader is given a POV from the newest kidnapped pregnant woman, there some twists and turns also in this little plot line.
