Book Review: 'Last to Die' by Tess Gerritsen

"All their thoughts are against me for evil." -- Psalm 56:5 (NKJV)

Everyone cares about orphans. If orphans are being treated badly, the sympathy is huge. Consider the Broadway show, Annie!

Tess Gerritsen takes that well-known penchant for a ride in creating a roller coaster of a plot in which youngsters are placed at more risk than anyone can imagine ... including the youngsters themselves. The story unravels a complex set of circumstances in an intriguing way that holds back some essential perspectives long enough to make the twists and turns more than usually surprising and entertaining.

Those who like this series for the interactions of Rizzoli and Isles won't be pleased, however. What goes on could have been conducted by any other pair of fictional characters. It's just that plot-driven. Sorry folks!
