"Detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles are back--and they're going into the wild to find a killer. Die Again is the latest heart-pounding thriller in Tess Gerritsen's New York Times bestselling series, the inspiration behind TNT's hit show Rizzoli & Isles. When Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles are summoned to a crime scene, they find a killing worthy of the most ferocious beast--right down to the claw marks on the corpse. But only the most sinister human hands could have left renowned big-game hunter and taxidermist Leon Gott gruesomely displayed like the once-proud animals whose heads adorn his walls. Did Gott unwittingly awaken a predator more dangerous than any he's ever hunted? Maura fears that this isn't the killer's first slaughter, and that it won't be the last. After linking the crime to a series of unsolved homicides in wilderness areas across the country, she wonders if the answers might actually be found in a remote corner of Africa. Six years earlier, a group of tourists on safari fell prey to a killer in their midst. Marooned deep in the bush of Botswana, with no means of communication and nothing but a rifle-toting guide for protection, the terrified tourists desperately hoped for rescue before their worst instincts--or the wild animals prowling in the shadows--could tear them apart. But the deadliest predator was already among them, and within a week, he walked away with the blood of all but one of them on his hands. Now this killer has chosen Boston as his new hunting ground, and Rizzoli and Isles must find a way to lure him out of the shadows and into a cage. Even if it means dangling the bait no hunter can resist: the one victim who got away. Praise for Tess Gerritsen "[Gerritsen] has an imagination that allows her to conjure up depths of human behavior so dark and frightening that she makes Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft seem like goody-two-shoes."--Chicago Tribune Last to Die "An exciting and puzzling mystery. a key book in a series that keeps getting better and better."--Bookreporter "Gerritsen skillfully heightens the tension right up to the suspenseful ending."--Booklist The Silent Girl "Suspense doesn't get smarter than this. Not just recommended but mandatory."--Lee Child "Another great thrill ride. one of Gerritsen's best."--Associated Press"-- Provided by publisher.
"Boston Detective Jane Rizzoli is on the case of a big game hunter found dead in his apartment, alone with the body of a beautiful white snow leopard he had recently been commissioned to procure and stuff for a high-profile museum in the area. Medical examiner Maura Isles connects the case to a number of seemingly unrelated deaths where the victims have all been found hanging upside down, the hallmark of a leopard's kill. Rizzoli follows the puzzling trail of clues all the way to Botswana, where she uncovers the unsolved mystery of a deadly camping safari four years prior. When she realizes the two cases are connected, Rizzoli must track down the sole survivor of the tragic trip to discover who - or what - is behind these gruesome deaths"-- Provided by publisher.

Tess Gerritsen never disappoints. Exciting, mystery/thriller that you can't put down.

Two story lines, one in Botswana on an African safari with the travelers being brutally murdered one by one and similar bizarre killings 6 years later in Boston and other states. Rizzoli works hard with Isles to link these cases to each other. Millie, the lone African survivor is persuaded by Rizolli to come to Boston to help solve this mysterious case that comes to a dramatic and surprising conclusion.
Another fast moving, gripping page turner. Very well done and recommended.

This was my introduction to the Rizzoli and Isles series. I really enjoyed it. Now I am going to read book 1, then 2, etc!

It was okay but not one of Gerritsen's best. It felt like the author was desperate to include something about her recent personal experience even if she had to force it into the plot

Combines a murder in South Africa with several ones in the US, the more recent ones in Boston. Just a little too much space given for repetitious information - how tigers kill and how the suspect killed his victims. I liked the setting of the safari where killers get killed. Great ending - keeps the reader guessing about the identity of the murder. The helpless woman - or is she so helpless- identifies the killer when he comes to kill her as well.

Very well done and the moral of the story is....don't go booking a safari holiday on line, direct. Use a reputable travel agent.

Die Again is the 11th title in the Rizzoli and Isles series by Tess Gerritsen. This mystery features a dual story line that takes place in Africa and in Boston, Massachusetts.

The twists and turns keep you guessing, and Gerritsen has done an excellent job providing vivid details and suspense without giving too much away too soon. I found the portions of the mystery that took place in Africa more interesting and fun to read, and Die Again is one of the more enjoyable in the series overall.

I really enjoyed this entry in the Rizzoli & Isles series from Tess Gerritsen. The last couple books in the series were good, but delved a bit into storylines that seemed a bit too supernatural in nature to honestly fit in well to the series. I enjoyed them, but they were a bit more unbelievable. With "Die Again," Gerritsen brings Rizzoli and Isles back on track into a more concrete world.

This was a fast paced read that moved back and forth between a doomed safari trip 6 years earlier in Botswana and present-day Boston where a world famous taxidermist has been found dead, killed in the same manner as the big game he was tasked with stuffing. This novel twisted and turned and I found myself drawn in, especially into the tense scenes in the African bush.

I think my only complaint would be the editing of the book in regards to Isle's birth mom. She plays a somewhat important role in the book, but she felt kind of randomly stuck into the book. I couldn't help but wonder if she was in the book more, but edited out.

Overall, though, this was an entertaining read and I can't wait for the next one to come out.
