Detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles are backâ€”and theyâ€™re going into the wild to find a killer. Die Again is the latest heart-pounding thriller in Tess Gerritsenâ€™s bestselling series, the inspiration behind TNTâ€™s hit show Rizzoli & Isles.
When Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles are summoned to a crime scene, they find a killing worthy of the most ferocious beastâ€”right down to the claw marks on the corpse. But only the most sinister human hands could have left renowned big-game hunter and taxidermist Leon Gott gruesomely displayed like the once-proud animals whose heads adorn his walls. Did Gott unwittingly awaken a predator more dangerous than any heâ€™s ever hunted?
Maura fears that this isnâ€™t the killerâ€™s first slaughter, and that it wonâ€™t be the last. After linking the crime to a series of unsolved homicides in wilderness areas across the country, she wonders if the answers might actually be found in a remote corner of Africa.
Six years earlier, a group of tourists on safari fell prey to a killer in their midst. Marooned deep in the bush of Botswana, with no means of communication and nothing but a rifle-toting guide for protection, the terrified tourists desperately hoped for rescue before their worst instinctsâ€”or the wild animals prowling in the shadowsâ€”could tear them apart. But the deadliest predator was already among them, and within a week, he walked away with the blood of all but one of them on his hands.
Now this killer has chosen Boston as his new hunting ground, and Rizzoli and Isles must find a way to lure him out of the shadows and into a cage. Even if it means dangling the bait no hunter can resist: the one victim who got away.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Tess Gerritsen's Playing with Fire.
Praise for Die Again
â€śWith Die Again, Tess Gerritsen proves that she is still at the top of her game. I love this fantastically gripping story and canâ€™t wait for more.â€ťâ€”Karin Slaughter
â€śTess Gerritsen always delivers, and this is Gerritsen at her dark, addictive best. What gives Die Again its peculiar charge is the idea, never far from the surface, that we humans are predatory animals like any other. Perhaps we should not be so surprised to find hunters among us.â€ťâ€”William Landay

â€śTess Gerritsen once again proves her masterful dominance in stories delving into the criminal mind and forensic sciences. Die Again left me breathless as Rizzoli and Isles investigate a horrific murder, one with ties to an unsolved massacre in years past.
