When two Boston nuns are found brutally beaten, one fatally and the other with a hint of life left in her, it’s up to homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and her partner to find a suspect. Then two more crimes are found,later to be connected with the murders from the chapel, a woman who can’t be identified plus a massacre in a village in India years before.
This time Jane finds it a challenge to keep up with the demands of the case. She is not feeling well and has an idea as to why. It is no help that Miss Independent is also unsure about her relationship with FBI agent, Gabriel, who soon comes from Washington D.C. to see her.
Medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles has the unlucky fortune to discover that the murdered nun had hidden a pregnancy and recently given birth. Who fathered this child? Where is the baby if no one at the chapel knows of any such pregnancy? Is this the motive for her murder? Meanwhile, Maura has the honor of her ex-husband coming back into town after being divorced for three years. Why does she suddenly interest him?
The Sinner is the third book in the Rizzoli/Isles series following The Surgeon and The Apprentice. It continues with the same well-developed characters and gripping story line as it dives a little deeper into their lives while off the clock causing more drama to unfold.
This book is written to be part of the series but it can also be enjoyable if read alone.
