Read full description of the books:
This is book 7 in the Rizzoli & Isles series. I recommend reading them in order . Tess Gerritsen is a doctor and uses her medical knowledge very well in this police procedural/medical mystery. It is a very creepy mystery, opening with the discovery of body thought to be an Egyptian mummy. The museum has arranged for a CT scan of the mummy. They have already determined the outer wrapping to be 2,000 years old through carbon dating. But the CT scan shows a bullet and they soon realize that this is a suspicious death. More horrific discoveries turn up, including shrunken heads. Detectives Rizzoli and Frost are assigned to the case and soon decide that they are looking for a serial killer with a taste for the macabre. This is a gripping thriller. I read it in two days, reading almost 300 pages on the second day.
Forensic psychologist profiling the killer: "He didn't want to let them go, so he turns them into keepsakes that will last forever."
Detective Rizzoli: " He preserved her as a keepsake. She became part of his harem, Josephine, a harem of dead souls."
I rate this library book a solid 4 out of 5 stars.

While on maternity leave from her work as a physician, she began to write fiction. In 1987, her first novel was published. Call After Midnight, a romantic thriller, was followed by eight more romantic suspense novels. She also wrote a screenplay, "Adrift", which aired as a 1993 CBS Movie of the Week starring Kate Jackson.
Tess's first medical thriller, Harvest, was released in hardcover in 1996, and it marked her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Her suspense novels since then have been: Life Support (1997), Bloodstream (1998), Gravity (1999), The Surgeon (2001), The Apprentice (2002), The Sinner (2003), Body Double (2004), Vanish (2005), The Mephisto Club (2006), and The Bone Garden (2007). Her books have been translated into 31 languages, and more than 15 million copies have been sold around the world.
As well as being a New York Times bestselling author, she has also been a #1 bestseller in both Germany and the UK. She has won both the Nero Wolfe Award (for Vanish) and the Rita Award (for The Surgeon.) Critics around the world have praised her novels as "Pulse-pounding fun" (Philadelphia Inquirer), "Scary and brilliant" (Toronto Globe and Mail), and "Polished, riveting prose" (Chicago Tribune). Publisher Weekly has dubbed her the "medical suspense queen".
Now retired from medicine, she writes full time. She lives in Maine.
