The Silent Girl
Author: Tess Gerritsen
A violent murder that has its links in the past.
A hand is found in an alley in Boston's Chinatown, its owner, a woman whose head has nearly been severed is found by detective Jane Rizzoli. Two strands of silver hairs are the only clues found on the body, but they're enough for Rizzoli and pathologist Maura Isles to make a startling discovery. This violent end had a chilling prequel. A Secret Better Left Buried.
Years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide took place in a Chinatown restaurant, leaving five people dead. But one woman connected to that massacre is still alive: a mysterious, beautiful martial arts master who knows a deadly secret.
