He may be behind bars, but Warren Hoyt still haunts a helpless city, bequeathing his evil legacy to a student all too diligent - and all too deadly. A year has passed since the capture of the Surgeon, serial killer Warren Hoyt, yet the memory of his brutal crimes continues to haunt Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli. Now she faces a new killer, a hunter who preys on well-to-do couples. For Rizzoli the death scenes have a horrifying air of familiarity, especially when she realizes that this new killer is copying one obscure element from Warren Hoyt's crimes. A new complication arises as a federal investigator from Washington joins the case. Again and again, Rizzoli clashes with Special Agent Gabriel Dean, who shows up at every crime scene. He knows something about this killer, something so politically explosive that he cannot reveal it to her. Then Warren Hoyt makes a brilliant and bloody escape from custody. Suddenly there is not one hunter on the loose, but two. And they are united, a pair of blood brothers who share grotesque appetites and a combined genius. They have joined forces to stalk the most challenging prey of all, the very woman who now hunts them ...

This is the follow up to "The Surgeon" and it does not dissapoint. To be honest, it might have been an idea to call it The Surgeon part 2, but thats not to say its not worth reading. The story basically picks up from where it left off, and starts at a good pace and keeps it throughout. All of the charachters are believable, old and new. Enjoyed it very much.

I came across this novel by chance and how thankful am i.
Having not read the surgeon first i thought i was going to struggle reading this book, and undoubtdly it would have helped build up some of the tension in areas but personaly i think you can survive without.
It's still a hair raiser with twists and turns that make you read on through out the night, once you've finished you immediatly want it to carry on and find out what happens with certain characters.
One of the best reads ever and i certainly will be continuing with the series. =]
