My Review: Die Again by Tess Gerritsen

3 out of 5 stars

Set in Botswana, Boston, and then South Africa, this book is quite different to the other Rizzoli and Isles books I have read. It is gripping, tightly woven, fast paced and has all the elements you would expect from the genre.

However, it left me feeling a little disappointed. There were too many moments when, instead of being totally engrossed in the story, I could instead picture the author on the back of a Landrover on holiday in the bush, doing research for her latest book. I also found the story didn't fit the setting that well, and wasn't convinced by the love interest part - fell a little flat for me.

All said and done, it was a welcome change from the usual setting of these novels, and an enjoyable read.


Read another review of this book (Ulrike liked this more than I did) on The Bluestocking Review
