    1 thought on “The Silent Girl”

    1. 4.5*This is a riveting mystery that I found hard to put down. I read it in two days. It starts with the discovery of a severed hand and a gun in an alley, and then a body w/o a hand on a roof. The dead woman was dressed in black and had no id--all suggesting a professional killer. The car belonging to the dead woman is found and it has a handheld GPS with two addresses--a martial arts academy in Chinatown and a retired Boston police detective, Lou Ingersoll. Detectives Rizzoli and Frost soon fin [...]

    2. *Everybody was kung fu fighting*I like this book better than the rest. Some kick-ass vigilantes are starring and I love learning more about Asian myth and culture.

    3. The Silent Girl is book nine in the Rizzoli and Isles series by Tess Gerritsen. Detective Jane Rizzoli and her partner Detective Frost caught a case in China Town. A body was found on the top of a restaurant that has been closed for twenty years after five people were killed. At first Detective Jan Rizzoli and Detective Frost thought this case was straightforward and easy to finish. However, this was not the case. The readers of The Silent Girl will continue to follow the twists and turns in Det [...]

    4. Why has it taken me so long to get back to this series am asking myself the question Tess Gerritsen is the madam of this genre & she has all the right moves to keep the reader glued to every page.The Silent Girl by Tess Gerritsen was a very atmospheric read Set in China Town a young woman is found in an ally with her hand missing & decapitated Jane Rizzoli enlists the help of Johnny Tam to help find out how she died as he knew the ins & outs of the China Town district. Years earlier [...]

    5. I think I've read all of Tess Gerritsen's books, and this may be her best yet. By using her Asian heritage and more over-the-top humor and risks, she's produced a book that has almost a graphic novel feel, but sits well on her Rizzoli & Isles shelf at the same time.After finding a dead woman with a severed hand on the roof of a building, Rizzoli & Isles find themselves following an invisible killer out of Chinese folklore--and an equally invisible and implacable hero from the same source [...]

    6. All day I have been watching the girl.What an impressive opening line…the best crime starts with a great hook, and this one drags you straight in by the hair.When a hand is found in a Chinatown alley in downtown Boston, Geritsen’s brilliant detective Jane Rizzoli climbs to a nearby rooftop and finds the hand’s owner – a woman whose throat has been slashed so deeply that her head is severed. The murder of this woman with no ID links to a horrifying murder suicide that happened nineteen ye [...]

    7. I was a little concerned before I started to read The Silent Girl, that now that I've been watching Rizzoli and Isles, I'd picture the actress' as opposed to the picture I had made in my mind of Jane, Frost, and Maura. I'm glad that when I started reading, my character's that I see in my head were still firmly there. I enjoyed the book very much. I liked learning more about China Town and Chinese legends. Jane hasn't changed much. Maura's a mess. IT seems to me, that this many books into the ser [...]

    8. I received this book from the Vine program.I have been a fan of Tess Gerritsen since I met her at a book signing about 10 years ago. I truly believe that she is one of the best thriller writers.After a woman is found murdered in the Chinatown section of Boston, Detective Jane Rizzoli follows the trail of the killer, leading her to an atrocious massacre from 19 years prior. As she puts clues of the current case together, Jane soon learns about the mysterious disappearance of several teenage girl [...]

    9. Ok, so my library now charges $1 for "New Hot Picks!" and this was soooo NOT worth that dollar!I really have enjoyed Gerritsen's writing styleup until this book.I did not like the progression, or lack of progression I should say with the whole Rizzoli & Isles characters. And why was this book called "The Silent Girl?" It was about SEVERAL girlsssss. Horrible and sick story about what happens to these girls, and you know what? We are left to our own imagination to "see" what really happened t [...]

    10. Tess Gerritsen Fans Group Link Group Read 2011Boston's Det. Jane Rizzoli (Dr. Maura Isles is rarely mention), the story is good, but the character list is long & may get confusing. It starts present day, investigation of a rooftop murder in Boston's Chinatown. Jane & her partner Det. Frost find the location was where the Red Phoenix Restaurant "massacre" - a 19 year old crime scene occurred. Crime logs listed 5 people killed: Joey Gilmore (Irish mafia), James Fang, Arthur(husband) & [...]

    11. Characters from previous stories, and an interesting mystery in Chinatown combined to make this another good installment in the series!

    12. I've read and mostly liked the previous novels in the Rizzoli/Isles series - some more than others. This is competently executed crime fiction, with both police procedural and thriller elements. The forensic aspect of the series - represented by the character of Dr Maura Isles - plays less of a part in this novel. This was a plus for me, because I'm rather tired of detailed autopsy descriptions. I am also rather tired of Dr Isles' tortured and soap opera-y love life. Jane Rizzoli is an interesti [...]

    13. If you are like me then you are a huge Tess Gerritsen Fan and have or been dying to get your hands on her latest The Silent Girl - I know I have. It's been months since I first put my name on the waiting list at the library but it has finally arrived and I read it in one day :). The Silent Girl features three different time periods. The first is Nineteen years ago , when it was said that a Chinese cook named Mr. Wu went on a killing spree in a Chinatown restaurant and murdered five people and th [...]

    14. Tess Gerritsen writes excellent, complex and well-plotted mysteries with a police-procedural bent which are right up my alley. This is no exception. While part of a series, this book could work as a stand-alone although you would miss some of the past events that drive character interactions. The only thing keeping this book from really hitting five stars for me is that there is just a little coolness to the writing style. I don't feel the characters' emotions quite as deeply as I would like. Th [...]

    15. I discovered Tess Gerritsen's wonderful Rizzoli and Isles series last year with the excellent novel Ice Cold. Then of course I started reading the earlier novels so it was a pleasure to go forward with The Silent Girl. In this outing Gerritsen visits her Chinese roots and sets the story in Boston's Chinatown. As I live in an area, Vancouver, that has a huge Chinese population and a legendary Chinatown that is both intriguing and mysterious I was ready for the mysteries of Boston's Chinatown. Ger [...]

    16. my absolute, absolute, absolute favourite of tess's! (and this has nothing to do with my asian heritage)feeling a love i cant quite put into words right now. this book, for me, contained just the right elements - the suspense, the twists, the action everything. tess added just enough clues in the story (hidden in the details - just as i like it) for you to play whodunnit, but threw in twists to throw you off your game, only to serve with an ending that i did not anticipate. also, the tension? be [...]

    17. Tess has once again written a compelling mystery and woven all the threads in a beautiful tale. I felt Rat (who we met in the previous book, ICE COLD) played an important role in this story.My favorite Rizzoli & Isles novel is The Keepsake (book 7 in the series); my second favorite in the series is ICE COLD (book 8). I think The Silent Girl ties with Vanish (book 5) as my 3rd favorite :-) Body Double is a good one too Oh Hell, they are all so damn good because TESS GERRITSEN is AMAZING!!!!Jo [...]

    18. Dünyada o kadar çok sessiz kız var ki hepsi de adalet bekliyor. Adalet, haksızlığa uğradığımızda en şiddetli bir şekilde arzuladığımiz ve maalesef çoğu zaman bize çok uzakta duran şey. Ama sesler birlikte yankılandiginda daha da kuvvetlenir, kimi zaman durdurulamaz. Ve işte adalet geç de olsa yerini buldu. Tess yine kurgu gücünü ve bilgisini konuşturmus. Üstelik bu defa atalarindan, kadim Çin öğreti ve dövüş sanatlarından ilham almış. Çok da iyi olmuş. Peki [...]

    19. Published: 05/07/2011Author: Tess GerritsenRecommended for: fans of Rizzoli & Isles I think that the Rizzoli & Isles series is one of the best there is. It is incredibly well written which captures the readers attention and keeps hold of it, it pace of the book keeps up all the way through meaning that there isn't a dull moment. This is the 9th book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone book you don't have to read the whole series in order. It is a great thriller that will make [...]

    20. Another awesome installment in the Rizzoli and Isles series! Tess Gerritsen has an amazing ability to thrill and scare you, every time she puts pen to paper!A ghost tour was winding it's way through Chinatown in downtown Boston late one night, the tour leader taking the group into a dark alley, when suddenly a child, who had been whinging about it being 'boring', let out a scream! They all thought the bloodied hand was a prop for the show, until it was looked at closely, then they all started sc [...]

    21. B+ at AAR, so 4.5 stars This month’s TBR prompt, catching up on a series, took me in something of a non-romance direction. As I contemplated my little wall of TBR, I realized my series-avoidance of the past few years had left me with only a few that needed catching up. Since I’ve been loving the Rizzoli & Isles books by Tess Gerritsen, I decided to jump into that world again. My TBR read for February was 2011′s The Silent Girl.The mystery running through this book takes readers on an u [...]

    22. I've wanted to read a Rizzoli and Isles book for a long time and now that I've read my first one, I will be reading more. I liked this book. It was creatively done. There was always something new happening, and some new clue given. It was a fun read. I also liked the characters. Rizzoli had a bigger role than Isles. I'm not sure if that is normal, but it all seemed to work well together. I also liked the ending.even though it had a red bow. It was perfectly suited to the story.

    23. Orijinali Kitap Esintisi adresinde.Sanırım Tess’ten bir şaheser okudum. Size göre öyle gelmeyebilir ama benim gözümde bu kitap kadının en iyileri arasında yer alacak her zaman. Öyle bir kitaptı ki yıllar yıllar öncesinde aşk romanlarıyla dalga geçen; elinde Brown, Chattam, Grange, Craig Russell, Agatha vb. birçok yazarın kitaplarıyla gezen küçük bir kızı hatırlamama neden oldu. Sanırım polisiye – ama iyi bir polisiye – benim her daim bebeklerim arasına girmeye [...]

    24. Gostei imenso. Adoro esta coleção e este livro em particular, ainda que não tenha sido um dos melhores, também me conquistou.

    25. I'm actually surprised at the fact that The Silent Girl is the 26th book I've read this year considering that the last few months I've been studying ceaselessly for the Romanian Baccalaureate I'll be taking at the end of June. As I said in a previous review, Tess Gerritsen is one of my favourite contemporary authors. I wonder whether she has ever written a bad novel because once again I found myself completely captivated by one of her novels and incapable of putting it down. Speaking of the Rizz [...]

    26. 4 times out of 5, even Gerritsen's lesser tales beat anything churned out by the Patterson + Author X quality book quick money-printing machine. And this isn't one of her lesser tales; it's probably in the midrange of her talents. THE SILENT GIRL, for the average crime/mystery/thriller reader, is mostly pretty darn good. I give it 3+ blood splatters, but not quite 4. YAYs & NAYs: (view spoiler)[YAY: ++ A Chinatown connection, a 20-year old multi-murder, a new police officer, and a possibly n [...]

    27. A murder in Chinatown sets off a complex plot involving a multiple murder from 19 years earlier - Rizzoli is resolute and insightful in pursuit, Isles less involved and marginalised because of a court case against a police officer.

    28. Tai devintoji Gerritsen serijos apie detektyvę Ricoli knyga. Pasikartosiu, ir vėl išreikšiu pasipiktinimą, jog tokie puikūs detektyvai Lietuvoje leidžiami ne iš eilės. Tikiu jog ne tik man toks leidyklos aplaidumas gadiną skaitymo ir intrigos malonumą. Mat knygos yra susijusios, ir gali išduoti įvairias smulkmenas, kurios skaitant tokio žanro knygas yra itin svarbios. O dabar apie knygą. Visi žino jog Tess Gerritsen dievinu. Jos knygas suskaitau itin greitai ir su didžiuliu malo [...]
