John Doe

When Maura Isles meets a handsome man at a fundraiser, she welcomes a bit of harmless flirtation. Or that’s what she thinks. The next day she wakes up on her couch with no memory of how she got there. Had she really drunk that much? When Rizzoli turns up at her door with questions, Maura starts to worry. A dead man has been found in the park and he has her business card.

John Doe is a digital short in Tess Gerritsen’s Rizzoli and Isles series. I’m not sure the plot suited itself to a shorter format as it started out like a full length novel and then had to speed up to get everything wrapped up by the end. There are some situations that lend themselves to short fiction but a serial rapist and a cold case seem a bit much to wrap up in a couple of days.

Saying that, it’s a good little read to pass an hour or so and will help keep fans going until the next instalment, Last to Die, is out later this month.

    Oooh I love this series so will have to check it out. Wonder why they didn't just go for a full out novel, plot sounds like it could have went the distance. Thanks for the review
