“Not as good as the other Rizzoli/Isles books...I'm getting a little tired of the conspiracy stories like the DaVinci Code, Book of Lies, etc. Let it go!”see full review » see other reviews »
“This book was good, but really slow for me to get into. I had to renew it twice from the library to finish it. Some of the subject matter, I think, was what I didn't really connect with, but the last 75 pages, it got very good.”Jenny R wrote this review Thursday, September 19, 2013.

“Creepy and gruesome, however the plot line is well-developed, and the ending is a good one. On the downside, it plods a bit in places, and gives a referential nod to a Da Vinci Code-like connection. I couldn't get over these humps to give it a rave review.”Wendy F wrote this review Monday, September 16, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“ I usually love Tess Gerritsen, but this one fell flat. The storytelling itself is of the caliber I would expect, but the inclusion of two false doctrines and discrediting of the bible (one character says 'you don't think the bible included the whole story, did you?) was complete nonsense. Stick to the medical thrillers and don't dabble in things you know nothing about unless you can back them up with absolute certainty.

“Having followed Jane Rizzoli from the beginning of the series, has been
a bit like watching a beloved child mature into an even more beloved adult, as she finds confidence, learns to be a bit less abrasive,
She falls in love with the right guy, and has a baby. Her professional relationship and blossoming personal ties with Maura Isles have also been a delight to witness. Maura herself becomes more intriguing with each new book, and the fact that she has a mother who is the female equivalent of Hannibal Lecter before Thomas Harris lost control of him, is just the icing on the cake. The Mephisto Club is one of the most deliciously creepy books I have read in a long time. I actually found myself shivering a couple of times. The supporting cast of characters is beautifully drawn, from the members of the club to Jane's amazingly dysfunctional family to Maura's forbidden lover.
One of the things at which Tess.Gerritsen has become more adept with each new novel in the series is her ability to inject levity--albeit gallows humor--into the mix, without losing sight of the seriousness of the subject matter. I am greatly looking forward to more Jane and Maura. ”
“Not my favorite in the series; the second half was much better than the first half. Didn't see the twist coming, and was still a solid interesting read. Will continue the series!”Colleen LeComte wrote this review Tuesday, May 14, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

Zij wordt jaren later door hem achtervolgd. De Mefisto club brengt haar in veiligheid.”Annelies wrote this review Thursday, April 11, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This was another great book in the Rizzoli & Isles series. It was a real page turner kept me guessing until the end.”Ursula wrote this review Monday, February 25, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Gerritsen continues to lead me down twits and turns that continue to surprise and thrill. The mythos and the glimpses of Italy are genius. I found myself routing for Lily and holding my breath each time she looked over her shoulder. And oh, the unexpected! This one is well worth crawling into bed with on a cold winter's night and reading until you've turned the last page!”Mary Ann Giasson wrote this review Saturday, January 19, 2013.
