Freaks: Rizzoli and Isles 8.5 by Tess GerritsenAdult Thriller
This one is labeled a .5 because it isn't a full novel, but more of a short story. However, it's so short it should be a .25 or a .10. A super-fast read!
Rizzoli and Isles are called to an abandoned church on Halloween where they find an emaciated woman with bite marks on her neck. Does this sound too trite, too cheesy, for the power duo? Ah, well, as in most of Gerritsen's stories, all is not as it seems at first glance. Leave it to Rizzoli and Isles to find a perfectly rational, plausible explanation for what appears to be an unsolvable crime.
This is a fun story, especially around Halloween time. This story is just for fun and a far departure from the usually gritty and gruesome detective stories you might be expecting.
