Tess Gerritsen - THE MEPHISTO CLUB

.

Tess Gerritsen has written 10 thrillers, 4 of them are medical thrillers, and then she has also written 6 in a series featuring Detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles. The latest in the series is called THE MEPHISTO CLUB.

The book opens with a brutal murder which is quickly linked to a club in Boston called The Mephisto Club, a group of people studying evil. The club believes that Satan may truly walk the earth.

This is a great read filled with superb pacing and a truly gripping story. The
Rizzoli/Isles books are all wonderful, but this one could be my favorite (so far). Gerritsen draws the reader into the story from the first page and keeps the suspnse building right to the very end. If you haven't read her yet, now is the time to go and start. She gets better with every one.

I enjoyed this book a lot, too. I particularly liked the Mephisto Club itself. I wish there'd been even more of them in it.

Even though they are completly different it made me think of Peter Straub's Hellfire Club.

Tess is just amazing, i wish she could write faster!

Jon,
thanks so much for the nice words about MEPHISTO! Writing about the Nephilim was a weird departure for me, and at the end of writing it, I still hadn't really decided what was myth and what was reality for my characters. So I guess this calls for a sequel!
