Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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?

"A novel"--Jacket.

Library Journal Review

Crime-solving duo Det. Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles return in Gerritsen's tenth novel in this popular series (after Last To Die). The book opens with an unknown woman describing an idyllic tourist safari in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, soon rendered horrifying by the death of an African tracker. The scene then switches to present-day Boston, where the body of a highly respected taxidermist and avid big-game hunter is found trussed and gutted like a hunting trophy. Rizzoli is called in, and soon it becomes clear that the murder is not an isolated event. The investigation proceeds with plenty of plot twists. The complex collaboration between Rizzoli and Isles hits a few bumps, and peripheral supporting characters add depth and humor to this page-turning story. The descriptions of the beauty and dangers of the Okavango Delta will satisfy armchair travelers. VERDICT Longtime readers will enjoy the well-crafted story arc and the continuing development of Rizzoli and Isles's relationship. For new readers, this title can stand on its own as a compelling forensic procedural.
