Publisher's Summary

For the second time in his short life, Teddy Clock has survived a massacre. Two years ago, he barely escaped when his entire family was slaughtered. Now, at 14, in a hideous echo of the past, Teddy is the lone survivor of his foster family’s mass murder. Orphaned once more, the traumatized teenager has nowhere to turn - until the Boston PD puts Detective Jane Rizzoli on the case. Determined to protect this young man, Jane discovers that what seemed like a coincidence is instead just one horrifying part of a relentless killer’s merciless mission.
Jane spirits Teddy to the exclusive Evensong boarding school, a sanctuary where young victims of violent crime learn the secrets and skills of survival in a dangerous world. But even behind locked gates, and surrounded by acres of sheltering Maine wilderness, Jane fears that Evensong’s mysterious benefactors aren’t the only ones watching. When strange blood-splattered dolls are found dangling from a tree, Jane knows that her instincts are dead on. And when she learns of Will Yablonski and Claire Ward, students whose tragic pasts bear a shocking resemblance to Teddy’s, it becomes chillingly clear that a circling predator has more than one victim in mind.
Joining forces with her trusted partner, medical examiner Maura Isles, Jane is determined to keep these orphans safe from harm. But an unspeakable secret dooms the children’s fate - unless Jane and Maura can finally put an end to an obsessed killer’s twisted quest.

Didn't see the end coming

Another great Rizzoli and Isles book.

Interesting tales with lots of twists and turn, I didn't see the ending at all.

Would totally recommend

CSI High School

This reminded me a lot of Heinlein's books for young people. It had really smart kids who handled tough situations and came out on top. There are some gory scenes and scary situations, but after reading Hunger Games by Collins and Rot & Ruin by Maberry, this is exceptable.

I had never heard of the Mephisto Society before, but now I want to find out more and read The Mephisto Club by Gerritsen. Gerritsen is one of my favorite writers this being my 14th book by her.

Gerritsen's writing is often a little simplistic and is especially so in this one. What I usual like is the subject matter she writes about. Her writing is rarely conventional and is usually edgy. She does not go as far as Koontz or King into the weird, but keeps it on the edge of believable.

This is a really good story with a good mystery and some great characters. The last half hour is full of twists within twists. I was a little disappointed in the ending in that it was too many twists in too short a time and the story lost some of it's intrigity. Up until the ending it was a very compelling story. The book as a whole is a five star read and is in my top five of Gerritsen books.

I was not crazy about the narrator, she sounded like she was reading a children's book. She way over did the Boston accent, even putting it in places it did not belong. All of the adult males souned like Yogi Bear. I was waiting for them to ask for Boo Boo and for a Pic-A-Nic Basket.

A Tantalizing Thriller

Tess Gerritsen once again brings together Boston PD Detective Jane Rizzoli and Medical Examiner Maura Isles in this taut crime thriller full of delicious twists and edge-of-your-seat suspense. There is less emphasis on the details of forensic pathology than in other books in this series, with Maura Isles playing a surprisingly different role in the unfolding of the enigma of three twice-orphaned children and the deaths of their parents and guardians. The plot takes one unexpected turn after another in a wild ride through realms ranging from metaphysics to astrophysics and just about everything in between.

Great narration especially in capturing Rizzoli's gritty Boston cop's tone and accent. I had a hard time breaking away from this book and found every conceivable excuse to get back to it as soon as possible!

Good but a bit contrived

I've enjoyed many of the books in this series and this was no exception. My slightly lower rating is because I felt the story was more implausible than some even though I accept that detective novels and thrillers have to be larger than life to sustain the reader. Nevertheless, if you like this author's books you'll still enjoy this one. I though the reader was fine.

Slightly disappointing but still worth a listen

Having thoroughly enjoyed all the previous books in the Rizzoli and Isles series, I was really looking forward to listening to the unabridged version of Last To Die. Whilst it kept me entertained, I felt that the plot line was a bit on the weak side and the fact that I'd worked out the twist long before it presented itself was rather disappointing. Also, at times the narrator sounded a little automated, it was as if the text was being read by a computer! Having said that, I didn't regret my purchase, it kept me entertained and will no doubt be downloading the next one in the series when it arrives.
