    How in the world do Dr Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli get involved in a case involving a two thousand year old mummy The Keepsake, Tess Gerritsen s seventh Rizzoli Isles book, sounds like it could be a creepy Halloween thriller I found it to be an intriguing puzzle Who was Madame X , and how did she come to be at the Crispin Museum in Boston Moreover, why do other well preserved, pseudo ancient remains keep appearing Are the deaths of these women related Unable to determine a c How in the world do Dr Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli get involved in a case involving a two thousand year old mummy The Keepsake, Tess Gerritsen s seventh Rizzoli Isles book, sounds like it could be a creepy Halloween thriller I found it to be an intriguing puzzle Who was Madame X , and how did she come to be at the Crispin Museum in Boston Moreover, why do other well preserved, pseudo ancient remains keep appearing Are the deaths of these women related Unable to determine a cause of death without organs, Dr Isles cannot proceed It is up to Jane Rizzoli and her partner, Barry Frost, to investigate Jane gets weird vibes about a young female archaeologist who is employed at the museum Frost seems smitten by her Oh oh Frost is a married man What s going on there And will it affect his work on this case Who is Josephine Pulcillo What is she running from And what kind of monster kills women then keeps them by preserving their remains What message is he sending, and to whom The book gets a little off track with Maura s romance with Daniel and the re appearance of Anthony Sansone from The Mephisto Club, but I was thoroughly enthralled with this story I couldn t wait to see who was behind it, and while I was sure that the bad guy was hiding in plain sight, I was way off base I am not sure that serious archeologists would truly appreciate this book, and I don t know if Dr Gerritsen had Halloween in mind when she wrote it, but whatever inspired her to come up with this premise, it made a terrific plot 4 stars

    Wow. double WOW Great story, lots of twists and turns fascinating victim s and evenfascinating deaths The book, inthan one way, felt like a race against time Not only are characters being hunted and on the run, but the intersection of past and present both complicated the resolution which is great because there are a few great twists in this one but those complications amp up the suspense and keep the pages turning Certainly my favorite installment in a series that just keeps Wow. double WOW Great story, lots of twists and turns fascinating victim s and evenfascinating deaths The book, inthan one way, felt like a race against time Not only are characters being hunted and on the run, but the intersection of past and present both complicated the resolution which is great because there are a few great twists in this one but those complications amp up the suspense and keep the pages turning Certainly my favorite installment in a series that just keeps getting better and better More back story on our protagonists Maura and Jane, but also Barry Frost gets some attention paid to his personal life And I must have missed something along the way This is not the Barry I had imagined 40 something, stodgy, slightly paunchy detective partner No, apparently Barry is a blond good looking Boy Scout of a decent cop in his early 30s huh How did I miss that I like that Gerritsen gives Barry some background because he always felt like the long suffering partner not really a dude with a life beyond following Jane around Certainly looking forward to the next book who knows what will happen next

    Mummies, shrunken heads, and bog bodies this story has the most unusual murder victims that I can recall in any story Bog bodies There is even a mysterious museum with a secret room Reminds me of when I was young and was reading the Hardy Boys The story opens with Maura Isles arriving at a hospital The Crispin Museum, a small and relatively unknown Boston museum, has discovered a mummy in their basement The museum s records are poor to non existent and they are excited about the discove Mummies, shrunken heads, and bog bodies this story has the most unusual murder victims that I can recall in any story Bog bodies There is even a mysterious museum with a secret room Reminds me of when I was young and was reading the Hardy Boys The story opens with Maura Isles arriving at a hospital The Crispin Museum, a small and relatively unknown Boston museum, has discovered a mummy in their basement The museum s records are poor to non existent and they are excited about the discovery Carbon dating has shown the outer wrappings to be 2,000 years old Before putting the mummy on display they want to perform a CT scan Maura has been invited as a guest Everyone is shocked when the scan shows a bullet in the body Instead of heading back to the museum the mummy is destined for the morgue where Dr Isles will perform an autopsy.Detective Jane Rizzoli and her partner, Barry Frost, head to the Crispin Museum They want to check out the basement where Madame X , the name they have given the mummy, was found This is one creepy museum What they discover is a secret room with shrunken heads Turns out one of these tsantsas is not what it appears to be It is not a shrunken head of the Jivaro Indians of South America Clearly they are dealing with a serial killer who likes to preserve his keepsakes.Josephine Pulcillo is an Egyptologist with the Crispin Museum She is very smart and very attractive Barry Frost appears to have fallen for her Jane Rizzoli is suspicious of her Something is off There is something else there Something she is holding back When Josephine discovers a body in the trunk of her car, a body that appears to have been preserved in a bog, and then disappears Rizzoli is convinced she is right Josephine Pulcillo is the key Find out what secrets she is hiding.The story takes Rizzoli and Frost from Boston to New Mexico to Texas to Maine as they work to unlock long buried secrets It kept me turning pages and up at night as I had to read just onechapter The only negative is with Maura Isles and her love affair with Father Daniel Brophy There is too much of her woe is me , divorced and in love with a priest I am not sure why Tess Gerritsen gets off track and brings this into the story I usually found myself thinking the character is sad and pathetic

    It s not that The Keepsake is worse than the other Rizzoli Isles books I ve read so much as it brings to light the fact that a couple of things that frustrate me about the series are actually series staples 1 There always seems to be a guy pinging the interest of either Maura Isles or a book specific secondary female character in some creepo way i.e long stares or persistent attempts at trying to help her These dudes are rarely the bad guys Is the Edward Cullen stare and relentles It s not that The Keepsake is worse than the other Rizzoli Isles books I ve read so much as it brings to light the fact that a couple of things that frustrate me about the series are actually series staples 1 There always seems to be a guy pinging the interest of either Maura Isles or a book specific secondary female character in some creepo way i.e long stares or persistent attempts at trying to help her These dudes are rarely the bad guys Is the Edward Cullen stare and relentlessly, almost aggressively rescue tactic really romantic nowadays I mean, Maura Isles is a doctor and Josephine Pulcillo in this one is a pretty smart archaeologist, so it s hard for me to believe that ladies with such brains are really charmed by lingery and or unassertive weirdos.2 There will be a lot of breathless twists at the end, including the revelation that Someone We Know is actually bad Or We made a mistake The evidence actually points to _______ while he s IN THE HOUSE Which, I m sure mistakes happen sometimes in the real world of detection, but meh I m gonna go back to Patricia Cornwell here I respected her, back when the Scarpetta books were great, for not going for the cheap thrill of this sort of twist She just told a straightforward investigation and discovery story.Bonus number 3 Gerritsen really cannot let go of the fact that her ME based medical examiner, Dr Singh, wears a Sikh headdress but also LL Bean boots This is the second time in the span of three books he was not in Vanish that these exact details are mentioned within sentences of each other I guess the problem is really that I m no longer in the mood for silly page turner mass market mysteries any

    Not my favorite in this series It seemed to me hastily put together and as I read I kept saying, I bet this happens next, or similar, and then it did Possibly I read too many mysteries possibly because I also was familiar with some of the circumstances scientific ones which were revealed in the book I m no archaeology expert, but I ve read a zillion books on the subject Okay, maybe just a couple dozen or soIt s an important day for a small museum which houses a full cabinet of curiosi Not my favorite in this series It seemed to me hastily put together and as I read I kept saying, I bet this happens next, or similar, and then it did Possibly I read too many mysteries possibly because I also was familiar with some of the circumstances scientific ones which were revealed in the book I m no archaeology expert, but I ve read a zillion books on the subject Okay, maybe just a couple dozen or soIt s an important day for a small museum which houses a full cabinet of curiosities, everything from old suits of armor to paleolithic tools and one mummy in a coffin which is about to be examined via a CAT scan Yep, they re gonna look through all the mummy wrappings to see what s really underneath all that hardened resin and endless embalming bandages Problem is this this mummy has a bullet in her leg, and where it is possible that someone did shoot an ancient, 1,000 year old mummy, there s another twist here the bone shows signs of healing before the mummy person died.Hence, mystery, a big one, and this leads both Rizzoli and Isles on a forensic and criminal quest What the heck is going on HERE The premise was great I read this one in two days I like Ms Gerritsen s writing style swift action, lots of suspense, great background development of her two MCs Jane Rizzoli, tough streetwise cop with a new husband and baby Maura Isles, gorgeous forensic specialist in love with a priest They are well presented and I believe every word they say, every move they make, butThe story was predictable with few surprises It s a bit graphic in places, but not overly so It felt too small for me like it needed another 100 pages to flesh some things out, including the mummy and a few other weird dead bodies which turn up.Thus, three stars That s a low rating for me
