Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

A blessed event becomes a nightmare for pregnant homicide detective Jane Rizzoli when she finds herself on the wrong side of a hostage crisis in this timely and relentless new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of Body Double.

A nameless, beautiful woman appears to be just another corpse in the morgue. An apparent suicide, she lies on a gurney, awaiting the dissecting scalpel of medical examiner Maura Isles. But when Maura unzips the body bag and looks down at the body, she gets the fright of her life. The corpse opens its eyes.

Very much alive, the woman is rushed to the hospital, where with shockingly cool precision, she murders a security guard and seizes hostages . . . one of them a pregnant patient, Jane Rizzoli.

Who is this violent, desperate soul, and what does she want? As the tense hours tick by, Maura joins forces with Jane’s husband, FBI agent Gabriel Dean, to track down the mysterious killer’s identity. When federal agents suddenly appear on the scene, Maura and Gabriel realize that they are dealing with a case that goes far deeper than just an ordinary hostage crisis.

Only Jane, trapped with the armed madwoman, holds the key to the mystery. And only she can solve it–if she survives the night.

Mana recenzija/My review

Pagājis aptuveni mēnesis kopš Body Double beigām, un Ridzoli kuru katru brīdi var sākties dzemdības. Kur viņai tāda ‘’veiksme’’, ka tieši attiecīgajā dienā kļūst par ķīlnieci slimnīcā. Nodaļas līdz attiecīgajam momentam arī ļoti labas – teiksim tā, reizēm arī miroņi pamostas.

Ik pa brīdim atskats pagātnē no Milas skatpunkta(tagadnes stāstā ienāk vēlāk). Kopā ar viņu ir arī viena no ķīlnieku turētājiem Oļena. Cerībā uz amerikāņu sapni meitenes no Austrumeiropas tiek nogādātās pāri okeānam un visām apsolīts darbs, bet viņas nespēj iedomāties kāds. Varētu domāt, ka lai nu kur, bet ASV verdzība nebūtu, kur nu vēl seksa verdzība. Apstākļi, kurus meitenēm nākas izturēt ir vienkārši neaprakstāmi. Kādā vakarā Milai un Oļenai tiešām noveicas, kad viņas izbēg; tas abas saved kopā ar Džo. Vairākkārt pa CNN redzētas dokumentālās filmas par šo tēmu.

Ķīlnieku krīze saceļ kājās bezmaz visus Bostonas žurnālistus, bet viens no viņiem, Pīters Lūkass, uzskata, ka sava darba godīga pildīšana nav pietiekama. Atkal jāpiedomā pie statistiskās iespējas, kāda notiek romānā, ka Maura (pirms krīzes) uzticas tieši viņam, lai godīgi uzrakstītu par notikušo morgā.

Varētu teikt, ka Vanish būtu dalāms divās daļās, un otrā pēc ķīlnieku atbrīvošanas. Diemžēl Oļenai un Džo tā nebeidzas iepriecinoši, bet līdz tam abi, īpaši jau Džo, izklausījās pēc kārtīgiem konspiratoriem, piemēram, jau ar to, ka milzu korporācijas patiesībā kontrolē valsti.

Tālu no patiesības abi nav, vienīgais šoreiz par varas un resursu savtīgu izmantošanu savas pozīcijas iespēju dēļ un sevis piesegšanu.

Bez visa tā jāapsveic Ridzoli un Gabriels ar meitas Regīnas piedzimšanu. Patīkami lasīt, kā gan Gabriels, gan kolēģi un draugi darbojās situācijas atrisināšanā. Stāsts bija tik labs, ka gandrīz lielāko daļu izrāvu cauri vienā dienā. : )

                                                                                                                                                

It’s been about a month since Body Double ending and it’s time when the labour for Rizzoli could start any moment now. How ‘’lucky’’ you have to be that in the exact day you become a hostage in the hospital. Chapters leading to that moment are very good – let’s just say that sometimes dead people might wake up.

From time to time there are flashbacks from POV of Mila (she comes into the present story later). Together with her is one of hostage takers Olena. Hoping for American dream girls from East Europe goes over the ocean with the promise of a job but can’t imagine what kind of job it will be. You might think slavery doesn’t exist anymore and definitely not in the USA, but in this books they become sex slaves. Environment that these girls are force to live in are just horrible. One night Mila and Olena are really lucky escaping that place and sure death (at that moment). That event brings them together with Joe. Many times on CNN I have seen documentaries about this problem.

The hostage crisis assembles almost all Boston journalists as everyone tries to understand what’s happening. But one of them, Peter Lukas, thinks that what he receives for his job isn’t enough. Again I have to think how statistically probable is the chance before the crisis when Maura Isles trusted exactly to him to tell the story about what happened in morgue.

I would say that Vanish could be separated in two parts; the second would be after the hostages are freed. Unfortunately for Olena and Joe it doesn’t end well but until the moment all hell breaks loose they, especially Joe, sounded like pure conspirators, like that the big corporations actually control the country.

They are not that far from truth, only in this case it’s about abusing power trying to cover up what you have done.

Besides all that I would like to congratulate Rizzoli and Gabriel with the new born daughter Regina. Liked those chapters where Gabriel, her colleagues and friends do everything they can to free her and others. The book was so good that I flew through it, read most of the chapters in one day.
