Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

Evil exists. Evil walks the streets. And evil has spawned a diabolical new disciple in this white-knuckle thriller from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen.

PECCAVI
The Latin word is scrawled in blood at the scene of a young woman’s brutal murder: I HAVE SINNED. It’s a chilling Christmas greeting for Boston medical examiner Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli, who swiftly link the victim to controversial celebrity psychiatrist Joyce O’Donnell, Jane’s professional nemesis and member of a sinister cabal called the Mephisto Club.

On top of Beacon Hill, the club’s acolytes devote themselves to the analysis of evil: Can it be explained by science? Does it have a physical presence? Do demons walk the earth? Drawing on a wealth of dark historical data and mysterious religious symbolism, the Mephisto scholars aim to prove a startling theory: that Satan himself exists among us.

With the grisly appearance of a corpse on their doorstep, it’s clear that someone or something is indeed prowling the city. The members of the club begin to fear the very subject of their study. Could this maniacal killer be one of their own or have they inadvertently summoned an evil entity from the darkness?

Delving deep into the most baffling and unusual case of their careers, Maura and Jane embark on a terrifying journey to the very heart of evil, where they encounter a malevolent foe more dangerous than any they have ever faced . . . one whose work is only just beginning.

Mana recenzija/My review

Ir noziegumi, kurus nevar vienkārši saprast un izskaidrot, kā vienīgi ļaunuma radītus, un noziedznieki, kuri apzīmējami kā monstri. Mefisto kluba biedri izvēlējušies nevis izvairīties no tā, bet gan pētīt pēc iespējas tuvāk un sīkāk. Bet var pienākt diena, kad tas maksā dārgi. Par ‘’milzīgu’’ prieku Ridzoli psiholoģe Džoisa(no iepriekšējām sērijas grāmatām) ir šī kluba biedre, un arī pārējo biedru idejas nostāda viņu kā lielu skeptiķi.

Tiek atrasts sievietes līķis, un sākotnēji domas ir par saistību ar reliģiju/sātanismu. Pat pieredzējušiem izmeklētājiem paliek baisi, un Maura šoreiz tik ļoti iesaistījusies izmeklēšanas procesā, ka dzīvības apdraudējums vēl nebijušā līmenī.

Fragmentāri tiek dots ieskats ļaundara prātā. Kā arī nodaļas no Lilijas Saulas skatpunkta, kura pirms divpadsmit gadiem palika bez ģimenes, un bailes vēlāk tik lielas, ka spiesta bēgt pāri okeānam, lai katru dienu atskatītos pār plecu.

Gan Ridzoli, gan Mauras personiskajā dzīvē ir savi sarežģījumi. Ridzoli vecāki pēc desmitiem gadu ilgas kopdzīves saskaras ar nopietnām nesaskaņām un šķiršanās draudiem, un viņai neatliek nekas cits, kā mēģināt abus vest pie prāta. Tikmēr Maurai sarežģījumus sagādā jūtas pret mācītāju Danielu. Kaut prāts apzinās realitāti, jūtas un sirds saka ko citu.

                                                                                                                                                

There are crimes you can’t simply explain or understand, only as created by evil, and criminals you can only describe with the word monster. Members of Mephisto Club have chosen not to run away from it but to explore and to study it as closely as possible. But there might be a day when the price for that is too high. For ‘’huge’’ pleasure for detective Jane Rizzoli psychologist Joyce O’Donnell (from previous books in the series) is a member of this club, plus ideas by other members makes Jane a very big skeptic.

A brutally murdered woman’s body is found, and initially everyone thinks about religious/satanic connection. Even investigators with experience are startled. This time Maura Isles gets involved very deeply in the case so much that her life is in more danger than ever before.

Fragmentarily the reader gets the murderer’s POV. Also some chapter from POV of Lily Saul, 12 years ago she lost her entire family, and later was so frightened that was forced to fly over the ocean and to look behind the shoulder every day.

For both Rizzoli and Isles there are some complications in their personal lifes. Rizzoli’s parents after decades long life together have very big disagreement and are very close to divorce. Rizzoli has no option but to intervene and bring them to some sense. Meanwhile Maura struggles with her feelings for Father Daniel Brophy. Although her mind realizes the reality, her feelings and heart tells her something else.
