Maura Isles makes her living dealing with death. As a pathologist in a major metropolitan city, she has seen more than her share of corpses every day-many of them victims of violent murder. Even more chilling is the discovery that they share the same birth date and blood type. For the stunned Maura, an only child, there can be just one explanation. Searching for answers, Maura is drawn to a seaside town in Maine where other horrifying surprises await. But perhaps more frightening, an unknown murderer is at large on a cross-country killing spree.
To stop the massacre and uncover the twisted truth about her own roots, Maura must probe her first living subject: the mother that she never knew. Book Ends. Tarte Aux Fraises. Winner of the Nero Wolfe Award. A blessed event becomes a nightmare for pregnant homicide detective Jane Rizzoli when she finds herself on the wrong side of a hostage crisis. A nameless, beautiful woman appears to be just another corpse in the morgue.
An apparent suicide, she lies on a gurney, awaiting the dissecting scalpel of medical examiner Maura Isles. But when Maura unzips the body bag and looks down at the body, she gets the fright of her life. The corpse opens its eyes. Very much alive, the woman is rushed to the hospital, where with shockingly cool precision, she murders a security guard and seizes hostages. Who is this violent, desperate soul, and what does she want? When federal agents suddenly appear on the scene, Maura and Gabriel realize that they are dealing with a case that goes far deeper than just an ordinary hostage crisis.

The Keepsake (Rizzoli & Isles, #7) by Tess Gerritsen
Red Pillows. Anthony Sansone: Wealthy and head of the Mephisto Club. Does it have a physical presence? Do demons walk the earth?
Drawing on a wealth of dark historical data and mysterious religious symbolism, the Mephisto scholars aim to prove a startling theory: that Satan himself exists among us. The members of the club begin to fear the very subject of their study. Could this maniacal killer be one of their own or have they inadvertently summoned an evil entity from the darkness? Delving deep into the most baffling and unusual case of their careers, Maura and Jane embark on a terrifying journey to the very heart of evil, where they encounter a malevolent foe more dangerous than any they have ever faced.
Jane looked around the table at Sansone and his guest. The so-called Mephisto Club. Even though Maura claimed not to be part of it, there she was, seated in their circle. It seems that her review is a bit of an oxymoron. Library of Dreams. Mysterious Reviews.
Savidge Reads. Chris High. Random Thoughts of a Demented Mind. Cannonball Read IV. Now its sudden rediscovery by museum staff is both a major coup and an attention-grabbing mystery.

And when the grisly remains of yet another woman are found in the hidden recesses of the museum, it becomes chillingly clear that a maniac is at large—and is now taunting them. Only Josephine knows that her stalker shares a knowledge even more personally terrifying: details of a dark secret she had thought forever buried.
Now Maura must summon her own dusty knowledge of ancient death traditions to unravel his twisted endgame. And when Josephine vanishes, Maura and Jane have precious little time to derail the Archaeology Killer before he adds another chilling piece to his monstrous collection.

All I Am- A Redhead. A Song of Read and Write. Barry Frost.

Haunted Eyeball. Amazon Rating: 3. GoodReads Rating: 3.
Total Score 3. Every crime scene tells a story. Some keep you awake at night. Others haunt your dreams. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, her head nearly severed. Two strands of silver hair—not human—cling to her body.
Nineteen years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead. But one woman connected to that massacre is still alive: a mysterious martial arts master who knows a secret she dares not tell, a secret that lives and breathes in the shadows of Chinatown. A secret that may not even be human. Cracking a crime resonating with bone-chilling echoes of an ancient Chinese legend, Rizzoli and Isles must outwit an unseen enemy with centuries of cunning—and a swift, avenging blade.
