The Bone Garden




If it's gripping, it's Gerritsen. The chilling bestseller that goes back in time.

'Fascinating... spectacularly gory... fast-paced.' Mail on Sunday

A GRUESOME SECRET UNEARTHED

When a human skull is dug up in a garden near Boston, Dr Maura Isles is called in to investigate. She quickly discovers that the skeleton - that of a young woman - has been buried for over a hundred years. But who was the woman? And how did she die?

It is the 1830s, and an impoverished medical student, Norris Marshall, is forced to procure corpses in order to further his studies in human anatomy.

It's a gruesome livelihood that will bring him into contact with a terrifying serial killer who slips from ballrooms to graveyards and into autopsy suites.

And who is far, far closer than Norris could ever imagine...

Readers are gripped by The Bone Garden:

***** 'A captivating tale . . . full of mystery, despair, horror, and the eventual truth.'
***** 'Compelling . . . kept me awake into the night.'
***** 'Absolutely riveting . . . I was hooked from the very first page.'

About the author

Tess Gerritsen

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. Her thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles. But Tess’s interests span far more than medicine and crime. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena.
