The beginning of something amazing. I stumbled over this book mainly by accident. It caught my attention, because it was set in Boston and it had two female main characters - both things I was very into by the time (as a huge "Crossing Jordan" Fan). I bought the first two books, not expecting them to be that great, and only after a few pages I became a fan. Ever since then I'm waiting impatiently on every new release of this series, and I'm glad Tess Gerritsen keeps writing and writing - and that there is a TV show based on this series. The TV show is different and can't be compared with the books. But both are unique and in their own special ways amazing and enjoyable to read/watch.
