    • WHY Tess, why Allow me to premise this review by saying that I have read every one of Ms Gerritsen s books and loved most of them barring only the Mephisto Club She is a brilliant writer, and the first few novels of Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles were wonderful, theatrical worthy thrillers This book was an ENORMOUS disappointment For awhile, her books have slowly and steadily become less about the crime and mystery thriller aspects, than about some personal agenda Each new book seems to be a mirro [...]


    • 4 This is a tense mystery with than one villain Dr Maura Isles, Boston Medical Examiner, is in Wyoming for a medical conference The conference is over and she is invited on a last minute ski trip by an old acquaintance from medical school She joins his party only to get caught in a blizzard on a dirt road Their SUV goes into a ditch and they walk to an abandoned group of houses on a private road There is a car in each garage and food on the tables in many houses Something happened that caused e [...]


    • Pro I thought Maura would die and her undecisive ass would be sent straight to kingdom come snicker Con False alarm The bitch lives.


    • One of the reasons I enjoyed Ice Cold to such a degree was due to the story mostly dealing with a cult, because it seems there are quite a few in the U.S and it is alarming how much control they have over their members minds Tess Gerritsen certainly found a hot topic to write about in my opinion.Tess just really hooks a person at the get go, and next thing one is so absorbed into the lives of the characters I started this book on Monday and found myself staying up all night to finish it unfortun [...]


    • Another solid readGerritsen manages to crank out book after book that is consistently solid, well plotted, and entertaining I return to this series between my other books, so to speak, because I know I can count on a reliable story with new twists.This book blends an isloated cult story together with a generally creepy atmosphere that works largely due to the author s skill in creating a setting, likable characters, and leaving the reader never sure exactly what is going on Usually when I have r [...]


    • This book starts out with all the twists and turns that make for a good mystery thriller with great reintroduction of some favourite characters However, the use of the cult and the initial introduction from a character that is found to be less than important leads this book astray, sometimes less is also .


    • You d think that once the 8th book in a series rolls around, the author would lose steam with the characters and they would transform into caricatures of what they once were This is not at all the case with Ice Cold In fact, I am positive that Ice Cold has to be the best one yet, even beating The Mephisto Club when it comes to my favorite Rizzoli and Isles book.Ice Cold was definitely the Rizzoli and Isles book with the most suspense The whole survival story line had me flipping the pages at an [...]

    • This book gave a change of pace as it takes place in Wyoming Maura gets trapped with a small group who have gone for a weekend adventure after a medical conference Their car goes off the road in a snow storm and their situation goes from bad to worse There were some interesting aspects of the plot and it was good to see Rizzoli and Dean second guess the local law enforcement.It stalled a bit in the middle The twist in the plot was good but I would have like to see a few details at the end.A goo [...]


    • In many ways, Ice Cold seems like several novels wrapped into one, interconnected by mysterious details that only come into full light after the last page is read Tess Gerritsen knows how to layer her novels better than most authors, and this book is no exception She meticulously lays out the plot without the pace of the novel suffering as a result of it Ice Cold s story belongs to the character of Dr Maura Isles, medical examiner from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts While most of the series f [...]

    • Am I the only one that thought some of the book felt unfinished Quite a bit of the story is built around the secondary characters, yet, their story seems to dissipate.


    • Originalrezension The emotional life of booksMEINE MEINUNG Ich wusste, dass Tess Gerritsen gute B cher schreibt Ich hatte ja selber schon welche davon gelesen Doch, was dieses Buch mit mir angestellt hat, h tte ich nicht erwartet Denn wenn Maura mal an einem Buch klebt, obwohl sie eigentlich zig andere Dinge zu tun h tte, dann ist das definitiv etwas ganz besonderes Aber fangen wir von vorne an Ich wusste relativ fr h, dass dieses Buch das Potenzial mitbringt, mich zu fesseln mal abgesehen davon [...]


    • Warning Spoilers I really enjoy Tess Gerritsen Even though she often uses the same couple of characters, she manages to keep her books fresh interesting So many authors I read get stuck in basically writing the same book over and over again.I find her characters refreshing than some others Espeically her female characters who in other mysteries tend to be merely ancilliary side characters or the Victim that needs rescuing I enjoy that Rizzoli is tough and so good at her job they really failed i [...]


    • I love Tess Gerritsen books I lap them up when they come out But I was a bit confused with the plot in this book SPOILERS AHEADSPOILERS AHEADSPOILERS AHEADSo Maura goes off on a side trip with a college pal, his daughter, and two of his friends This takes up a good one third of the book, if not So why does it feel like these four were thoroughly abandoned by the end of the book I kept going When is Jane going to help find these four people Am I going to see them under control of the prophet, wi [...]


    • It was OK.I loved Tess Gerritsen, just as once upon a time I loved Kathy Reich Unfortuntately something happens to writers of good books when they become best selling authors Perhaps not to all, but to some of them This boook was a competent beach read and nothing Gerritsen s other books were so much better, but it seems as though she has sold out to the forces of those in the publishing world who control James Patterson, Kathy Reich, the Kellermans, Jeffrey Deaver etc, etc.When dollars trump a [...]


    • This was my first dose of Rizzoli and Isles and I liked the experience This wasn t your typical murder mystery thriller, so I really enjoyed the change of pace The only drawback is that since this was my first experience in Gerritsen s world, I didn t feel like I got to know Rizzoli and Isles well enough in the novel Luckily, the book was good, so I have no problem going back to their earlier adventures.


    • One of my favorites so far this year Suspenseful, creepy, and surprising This is the first Rizzoli and Isles book I ve read, and now I want to read them all

    • Random House did a 50 copy first reads giveaway for Ice Cold, then through arrangement with Tess Gerritsen, the publisher gave away 5 copies to our small Tess Gerritsen Fans group I got me an advanced readers copy and loved it The story is set in the middle nowhere Wyoming in the winter We see many old friends and meet some new characters that are sure to turn up in future books ICE COLD worked the same magic on me as Tess s 2008 release, The Keepsake although I must say The Keepsake remains my [...]

    • Wow, this was a really different Rizzoli Isles The title was fitting as so much of the story takes place in the depths of a bitter cold, snowy winter in the Teton Mountains of Wyoming Gerritsen made me shiver as I imagined the fear and helplessness that Maura and her unlikely companions were experiencing when they were stranded in a cult settlement way out of town My only complaint is I would have liked a bit follow up on the fate of her companions What ultimately occurred was obvious, but I th [...]


    • Tess Gerritsen Fans Group LinkThe background is not Boston but Wyoming Dr Maura Isles other doctors are in a Wyoming medical conference The doctors go on a snow covered cross country trip Their SUV stalls search for help leads them to finding an abandoned Kingdom Come village The buildings are not destroyed, up to date but no residents Where they captured, homicides or escapes Maura helped with injuries, then went to find resources but does not come back.Halfway thru the story the book s pace is [...]


    • Why yes, this book is totally implausible Still fun to read, though.We get a lot of Maura in this book, with very little of Jane Maura Isles is out west at a conference and decides to head out with a former classmate and some of his friends on an overnight jaunt What starts as a pleasure trip turns into a nightmare on a snowed out road as one of the party is injured and the group ends up taking refuge in what appears to be a deserted village The ultimate resolution of the story as the nature of [...]

    • The 8th book in the Rizzoli and Isles series by Tess Gerritsen.This is an excellent series of books that features Jane Rizzoli a police homicide detective and Maura Isles a medical examiner The books are very well written and show a very good knowledge of Police procedure The interaction between the main two characters is very effective and makes very entertaining reading.


    • What a great book This is the third novel by Tess Gerritsen that I have read only in the last week and I cannot get enough of her writing and her stories As I have already written reviews for The Surgeon , The Apprentice and Last to Die I will not repeat any of the general stuff such as my comments on her writing and her characters here.But of course I ll talk about the story I was so impressed by all of the plot twists and I can honestly say that there was not a single page in this book that I [...]
