    1st and only read.Feb 20, 2017This book stitches together 2 separate stories First is that of an African Bush outing that goes south in a big way This was no fancy five star African safari This clients were promised an outing that involved hunting for the food they would consume on their trip, camping out in tents they pitched themselves No luxuries, no contact with the outside world Zip Unfortunately, out in the wild lines get blurred between the hunters and the prey This part of the story was frightening and captivating as the group is cut off from civilization and don t know who to trust in the wild.The second story line not quite as compelling relates to a series of murders across the U.S that have a similar theme of hunting Can they tie these murders to the tragedy in Africa Can all these murders across the globe some how be related Detective Jane Rizzo with her friend Medical Examiner Maura Isles begin to investigate and try to determine the link between all these murders This is a great series that just keeps getting better Highly recommend, and even though you can read this as a standalone, start at the beginning of the seriesit s worth it An easy quick read that held my attention throughout Final thought You may change your eating habits and embrace a vegetarian lifestyle after reading this book

    I think the fact that I finished this book in one day indicates how much I enjoyed it Tess Gerritsen is in top form and it is one of the best Rizzoli and Isles book she has written I loved the fact that some of the story is set in Botswana and in Cape Town as well as Boston In fact there are two story lines running throughout the book one in Africa and one in America and each is as exciting as the other I frequently felt the need to rush on to the end just to find out how on earth it was going to end and how all the bits were going to combine And of course it ended with a clever, unexpected twist and a really satisfying conclusion Fantastic

    Boston police Detective Jane Rizzoli and Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles are back The 11th book in Tess Gerritsen s fantastic Rizzoli Isles Series that grabs you from the first page In the slanting light of dawn I spot it, subtle as a watermark, pressed into the bare patch of dirt Were it midday, when the African sun glares down hot and bright, I might have missed it entirely, but in early morning, even the faintest dips and depressions cast shadows, and as I emerge from our tent that lone footprint catches my eye I crouch down beside it and feel a sudden chill when I realize that only a thin layer of canvas shielded us while we slept Jane Maura are investigation a bizarre and sinister murder of a well known game hunter and taxidermist, who has been left gutted and hanging in his home It soon becomes clear that his murder may be linked to the disappearance of six tourists in the Okavango Delta six years previously None of them have been seen again, except from one woman, who barely survived in the bush and who may be the only person who knows the killer, who may be continuing his killing spree in Boston.Jane and her FBI husband travel to South Africa to persuade the lone survivor of the safari trip to help them identify the killer in Boston.The settings are vividly written.you sense the danger of the African bush, you feel the menace that surrounds the safari group, the fear that the survivor feels The relationship between Jane Maura Jane, hot headed, smart tough and Maura, logical and clear headed their differences are what makes them work so well As Jane tells Maura We both chose this work because we re not sunshine and ponies kind of gals An intractably woven plot that switches from present day in Boston to six years ago in Botswana The connection between the two narratives slowly unfolds with heart pounding Intense page turning that keeps you guessing until the very end Clever, action packed filled with twists, turns and surprises until the last page

    Gripping, terrifying, strong characters, good plot, and guaranteed to keep you awake at night A group of tourists are driven deep into the jungle of the Okavango Delta of Botswana to experience a trip of a lifetime by camping under the stars, and observing the wildlife Their excursion soon turns into a nightmare when the hired tracker is found partially eaten not far from their camp Tess Gerritsen creates an eerie frightening atmosphere as the tourists lie awake scared and on edge while listening to croaks, cries and grunts of unknown creatures waiting to seize another live meal Die Again is a solid crime thriller.

    EDIT HAPPY DANCE BECAUSE I FOUND OUT THAT THIS IS NOT THE LAST BOOK OF THE SERIES, Tess Gerritsen REPLIED IN MY FANGIRLING AND I CAN FINALLY CHANGE MY RATING BECAUSE I WANT TO AND I CAN Die Again is a wonderful read It has the usual Tess Gerritsen factor The well written gory scenes The parts where Gerritsen knows it s the perfect time for the cold chill in your spine moment The whodunnit factor And of course, badass scenes This time,Gerritsen takes us to Botswana, Africa two years ago, where 6 tourists joined for a tour in the bush.This is the place where you are in the territory of beautiful wild animals.No guys This is not like Taylor Swift s Wildest Dreams music video.This trip is grittier and wilder.It s survival of the fittest which makes me think that if I was there, I would only last for a few days But something dangerous than the wild animals started hunting the tourists and only one of them survived the tragic trip.I love this book now because I m not disappointed any Tess Gerritsen said that this is not the ending of the series I have apoligized furiously and promised a lifetime of worship to my Die Again kindle copy because I feel like I ve offended it by what I wrote in my review.I ve subscribed to a lot of book blogs and online bookstores, so when I received an email that the last book in the RI series is on sale blah blah blah, I believed it immediately Not the sale part, but the last book in the series part I have to search for that darn message in my mountain of unread emails because I want to set the record straight to them Those bastards, can t they see that there are some naive, ignorant people like me who gets affected with that kind of news There s a special place in Dante s hell reserved solely for them.But everything is good now because there will be another book s in the series and I can finally reread this book without cynicism.

    Detective Jane Rizzoli Medical Examiner Maura Isles are investigating the gruesome murder of a big game hunter and taxidermist who died in a similar manner to how he captured his own big cats Maura eventually finds a connection to an unsolved case in the wilds of Botswana where six members of a safari either were presumed dead or whose bodies were later found There was one survivor and the suspected murderer has never been seen again That survivor has taken great pains to stay hidden all these years I don t think there s anything wrong with this story and is a case of it s not you, it s me The subject matter was not something that interests me and a great deal of the story takes place during that safari I m sure it was fascinating but I just wanted to get back to Boston Once the story did do just that, it regained my attention Tanya Eby repeats as the narrator and did a great job managing a very diverse cast of characters I liked the continuity It s a good story, just not a great one for me 3.5 stars

    Leopards and tigers and hyenas, oh my Tess Gerritsen s eleventh Rizzoli and Isles saga, Die Again , begins with a safari in Botswana A reluctant bookseller from London has accompanied her boyfriend and several others on safari What is intended to be a pleasure trip for the humans turns out to be anything but Only one comes out alive.Meanwhile, back in Boston, Detective Jane Rizzoli and her partner Barry Frost must deal with a gruesome scene a taxidermist has been found strung up and disemboweled in his home This is not a pretty sight There are also some graphic descriptions of animals being butchered in the wild for survival as well as animals attacking humans I am not vegetarian, but I do not particularly care to visualize the harsh realities, I guess Somehow, Tess Gerritsen manages to connect the two cases I had a good guess and came close, but I was wrong There really wasn t much of a hint as to the guilty party because we knew so little about this individual until the very end Other than that, the other characters are quite well developed.As usual, we get some of the drama in Jane s life her mother s life is in turmoil, and Jane is doing her best to support her Maura Isles has gotten some disturbing letters regarding her mother, who is in prison Somehow I managed to read 12, I Know a Secret , before reading this one, so I know how these issues work out It would have been nice to have had of Gabriel in this story, but we do get to see a little of him when he travels with Jane to Africa to talk to the safari survivor I enjoyed that part of the story, actually, but for the most part, I did not care for the safari arc much I was not expecting the twists at the end, however.Overall, this was not one of my favorites in the series, but I still love Rizzoli and Isles.3 stars

    Tess Gerritsen is back with another Rizzoli and Isles crime thriller spanning all the way across the bush in Botswana where there is a killer sinister than the hunting leopard Die Again tells the story of an adventure in Africa turned nightmare A group of people travel into the bush in order to get a closer look at what it means to live in the wild Before long, they become hunted, and it ain t by no lions or tigers.Six years later, Rizolli and Isles are called to an horrific crime scene where a world renowned taxidermist, Leon Gott, is gutted similarly to the way big game is done But his remains are not all they find Before long, the investigation leads them to the bush, where six years earlier, a group of tourists disappeared Or did they MwahahahaaaaAnyway, I have been a fan of Tess Gerritsen s work for a long time She has a way of writing suspenseful, yet informative novels that refuse to let go These novels are descriptive, especially when it comes to the human body or autopsy scenes Gerritsen is a doctor, so expect to be amazed or at least a little grossed out Once I begin one of her books, it s not an option not to finish it Die Again is no different Although I m a huge fan of Gerritsen s, I m still able to read all her novel s objectively How Do you ask Because she can afford to have an honest review or two My honesty will not make or break her When Die Again starts, it s clear that we are not trudging along the mean streets of Boston It is actually a narrative A really good narrative that brings to life the Botswana bush and invigorates the senses It is here Gerritsen proves how well she writes The animals come to life, the character s senses are heightened, and the sense of tension is palpable I could have stayed in those moments forever.Sadly, Gerritsen didn t give much attention to detail on the Boston side of things I want to believe it s because followers of this series don t need too much detail Detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles need no introduction For those of us familiar with them, they need no introduction For others living under a rock, they may want to steer clear of reading this without first checking out prior works in this series They will be doing themselves a favor.The one other thing I noticed that kinda made my gears grind was how chick litish the book really was When they weren t talking about the perp who is haunting his prey, the characters are talking love, romance, nonsensical things that have no bearing on a crime thriller I know it s been a while since I ve read any books in this series, but were they always so soft Even bad ass Rizzoli seemed less bad ass.Anyway, besides my one major gripe, Die Again comes highly recommended I enjoyed reading every page Tess Gerritsen always manages to make the tension real enough to feel I look forward to hunting down the next Gerritsen novel Copy provided by Random House via Netgalley

    The excitement was tangible from the small group of people on safari in Africa A first for the city people Botswana was touted as the last really wild place on earth the website they had booked their seven day safari from had been enticing For Millie though, she had only accompanied boyfriend Richard because it was his dream having been a couple for a few years now, Millie was used to the sacrifices she made for Richard what was one But Millie was finding it difficult to enjoy the experience and when they were only a couple of days into the trip, things began to go very wrong she wondered if they would even survive Six years later, in the city of Boston, Detective Jane Rizzoli and forensic pathologist Maura Isles were called to the home of a man whose profession was to stuff and mount wild animals his walls were covered with the heads of African animals much to the disgust of those in attendance But the horror of what they had found a man hanging in his home with terrible injuries then another body shortly afterwards, made Rizzoli realise there could well be a serial killer on their hands, and a particularly gruesome one at that.As the intense investigation gained momentum, Rizzoli discovered unsolved murders in other states other countries were they all the work of the safari killer They were markedly similar But no one else believed her theory, least of all Detective Crowe and ignoring him was what she did best With so many victims never having been seen again, Rizzoli felt the need to contact the one survivor who had made it out alive Would that person be able to shed light on the horrors of the past, and save the lives of people in the future Was it even fair to make her die again Tess Gerritsen has done it again Wow, totally breathtaking Suspenseful, gripping and full of tension, Die Again lived up to my expectations I have no hesitation in recommending this one extremely highly Loved it
