Though held behind bars, Warren Hoyt still haunts a helpless city, seeming to bequeath his evil legacy to a student all-too-diligent . . . and all-too-deadly.THE APPRENTICEIt is a boiling hot Boston summer. Adding to the city's woes is a series of shocking crimes, in which wealthy men are made to watch while their wives are brutalized. A sadistic demand that ends in abduction and death.The pattern suggests one man: serial killer Warren Hoyt, recently removed from the city's streets. Police can only assume an acolyte is at large, a maniac basing his attacks on the twisted medical techniques of the madman he so admires. At least that's what Detective Jane Rizzoli thinks. Forced again to confront the killer who scarred her - literally and figuratively - she is determined to finally end Hoyt's awful influence . . . even if it means receiving more resistance from her all-male homicide squad.But Rizzoli isn't counting on the U.S. government's sudden interest. Or on meeting Special Agent Gabriel Dean, who knows more than he will tell. Most of all, she isn't counting on becoming a target herself, once Hoyt is suddenly free, joining his mysterious blood brother in a vicious vendetta. . . .Filled with superbly created characters and the medical and police procedural details that are her trademark,The Apprentice is Tess Gerritsen at her brilliant best. Set in a stunning world where evil is easy to learn and hard to end, this is a thriller by a master who could teach other authors a thing or two.From the Hardcover edition.

    Tess Gerritsen Fans Group Link - my 2nd readIs Serial-killer Warren Hoyt from "The Surgeon" back (book #1's murderer)? Hoyt has been locked up for 1 year in Massachusetts' Walpole State Prison. Det.Rizzoli helped find & arrest him."The Apprentice " murders have a similar technique while he is locked up. Hoyt tied victims with duct tape, killed 1 woman at a time & left folded nightgowns as his Dominator's sign of control. The Apprentice kills couples & resemble Hoyt's. Dr. Yeager (fir [...]

    A new serial killer has come to Boston and Detective Jane Rizzoli is called to the latest crime scene when there are similarities to a former case she worked on which resulted in the capture and arrest of Warren “The Surgeon” Hoyt. Hoyt is now in prison, so these latest murders must be the work of a copycat. Then Hoyt escapes and it seems he’s now joined forces with this new killer, The Dominator.This book was enjoyable enough, but disappointing as well. I was looking forward to reading ab [...]

  • Sarah

    These books are SO good. Well, this is only the second book that I have read in the series but they are so good! This one wasn't as good as book one, I think the story was the reason why, but I did give book one 4.5 stars so its not that much of a step down. If all crime novels were like this, I would definitely read more crime novels!I think Gerritsen is a terrific writer and storyteller. I highlighted a couple of passages to show how good she is - "Even before they saw the body, the heard the [...]

  • Carolyn

    With the serial killer known as the Surgeon behind bars, Detective Jane Rizzoli can breathe easy and get on with her life. Or can she? When a murder victim is found with his wife clearly tortured and abducted, there is a chilling signature of the Surgeon's work and perhaps a hint that he is not entirely finished with Jane.A very creepy, thriller which manages to raise the tension to the max without a host of murders. An excellent follow up to The Surgeon and an introduction to forensic pathologi [...]

  • Abby (Crime by the Book)

    I read this one while traveling - it was a perfect plane read! Totally gripping and chilling. I wouldn't have thought I'd be a fan of medical thrillers, but I really enjoy Gerritsen's writing - it's addictive and fascinating, with lots of detailed medical references that make the story that much more authentic.

  • Jennifer

    I'm a big fan of the Rizzoli & Isles tv show and with the fall hiatus, I decided to start reading the actual books. Full disclosure, I skipped The Surgeon (#1 in this series) because, honestly, Maura Isles is not in it. Sorry. Not interested.I can definitely tell you, if you've watched the tv show, you can jump into this book first without any problems. The changes that were made for the tv show are, in my opinion, fairly minor in terms of characters and their relationships to each other (fo [...]

  • Sandra ~ ♥ Cross My Heart ♥

    4.5 Stars! Awesome follow up to book 1, The Surgeon! Intense doesn't begin to describe The Apprentice. This is on-the-edge of your seat, heart-racing, scared-to-turn-the-lights off suspense! It's been a year since Jane put away the Surgeon. Physically, she's healed, but mentally & emotionally - she's got a long ways to go. And now she's called to the scene of a horrific murder in another district . . . one that mimics those perpetrated by the Surgeon. Jane's nightmares come rushing back as s [...]

  • Daisy

    This is the second book by Tess Gerritsen that I've read. I must say this was as good or better than The Surgeon.I'm addicted to this series and I will be reading all of them.

  • Jenny

    The Apprentice is the first book I have read of Tess Gerritsen, and I was impressed with the way Tess Gerritsen portrays her characters especially Jane Rizzoli and Detective Korsak. I am also impressed that the Rizzoli and Isles TV show does represent the books.Detective Jane Rizzoli is still recovering from her encounter with The Surgeon when couples are starting to die in Boston with the similar characteristic of The Surgeon. The readers of The Apprentice will start to wonder if there is a cop [...]

  • Gülay Cansever

    Evet kadroya İsles de katıldı. bakalım serinin devamında bizi ne maceralar bekliyor. bu arada gerritsenin bir katili tasvir etmesi, onun beyninin nasıl işlediğini anlatması falan harika😬

  • Raíla Soares

    When I finished reading The Surgeon, I was way too excited to put my hands on the next book of this series and read it. Unfortunatelly, I only could do it months later, but I did it well. I read The Apprentice in one day and a half. This rarely happens! I have seen that it's only a sugestion for you to read the series in order. I don't think so, though. I believe I wouldn't have understood it well if I haven't read The Surgeon first.This second one is basically a sequel for The Surgeon. The "new [...]

  • Carmela Masi

    With the continuation of the Surgeons travesty’s and the introduction of the Dominator, this book has a lot going for it. We get the first sneak peak at Dr Maura Isles, and a continuation of the amazing Jane Rizzoli, badass kickass cop. Finished this book with the craving for more.

  • Quike

    Cerrah'daki heyecan aynı şekilde devam ediyor. Bütün programlarınızı iptal edip tamamen kitaba yoğunlaşacağınızdan eminim. .Kendinizi olayların içinde hatta çoğu zaman Rizollinin gergin ruh halinin içinde buluyorsunuz.

  • Tiffany PSquared

    This was a random selection for me, I needed a new audiobook for the car, and I needed a book whose title starts with an "A" for a reading challenge. Check. Check.I'm familiar with this series in the same way that I am familiar with the Kathy Reichs/Bones/Temperance Brennan series - I saw it on TV first. So, I automatically have those actors running around in my mind every time I read any of those books.I enjoyed The Apprentice. At 90% complete, I started to worry that Gerritsen would make a hor [...]

  • Punk

    Thriller. The serial killer known as the Surgeon is back to menace Boston Homicide Detective Jane Rizzoli, but Rizzoli is way too stubborn and angry to let him get away with that for long.The first book in this series really pissed me off. Its portrayal of rape and gender was completely offensive and the clumsy writing and unsympathetic characters only made the problem worse.Gerritsen corrects some of those mistakes in this book. For example, the text does a better job of distinguishing between [...]

  • The Book Whisperer (aka Boof)

    After reading the utterly brilliant first book in Gerritsen’s Rizzoli and Isles series, The Surgeon, I couldn’t wait a single second more to get stuck into the next in the series. I hoped it would be every bit as good……and it was! Infact, as I write this I am half way through #8 in the series (never before have I read any single authors books back-to-back until now).The Apprentice is the moniker given to a new serial killer stalking wealthy couples in Boston, a killer who has a strikingl [...]

  • Tea Time with Marce

    From my blogMy Review - 2 1/2 Not my cup of teaWhat a total let down, I cannot believe this was written by the same author, The Surgeon was almost perfection in my mind, so to get a total boring, what was the point follow up was beyond disappointing. This read like a debut, repetition continuously. I understand the details needed for those that didn't read The Surgeon but even if you didn't it became insanely unnecessary.There was no mystery to me in this book, so The Surgeon escapes from prison [...]

    ein reread, der sich definitv gelohnt hat :)

  • bookaddict

    5/5 MÜKEMMELDİ.Kitap o kadar akıcı ki,ne zaman elime aldım,ne Zaman bitirdim anlayamadım.Yine çok zekice kurgulanmış bir kitaptı.Tess yine hayal kırıklığına uğratmadı.Yazar tıp bilgisini sonuna kadar kullanmıştı bu arada kitapta.Ama yine de cerrah kadar ürkünç,rahatsız edici bir kitap değildi.Daha çok katilin psikolojik yönleri aktarılmıştı okuyucuya.Ve bu da benim çok hoşuma gitti.Karakterlere daha çok ısındım bu kitapla.Polisiye/gerilim seven herkese tavsi [...]

    This review will have spoilers. You’ve been warned.The only reason I checked this book out of the library is because I watched Rizzoli & Isles on TV and I enjoyed it. This is not the type of book I normally read. This is the second book in the Rizzoli & Isles mystery series. Rizzoli is a homicide detective who a year before heroically captured the serial killer dubbed The Surgeon. She was also nearly his victim, which has left her scarred inside and out. The scars start to itch when sh [...]

  • Christine

    Another great read by Tess Gerritson. Not for the faint hearted. Crime scenes are very descriptive and just the way I like it. If you like a gutsy crime serial killer read, well I advise you to get stuck into this book. If you haven't read book one The Surgeon, I highly advise you start with this book first.

  • Nat

    I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first in the series, but that's expected since The Surgeon was a masterpiece. If you read the first (which hopefully you did) this book can get a little repetitive, but there's enough new information and twists that it's still entertaining. Gerritsen's writing style is pretty phenomenal and I found Rizzoli to be more likable in this book than she had been in The Surgeon so it's a win all around. Can't wait to read the next one in the series.

  • Gamze

    Çok çok ÇOK sevdim Kitabın sonunu apayrı sevdim, özellikle sonunda Rizzoli'nin daha bagajdan çıkar çıkmaz adamların işini bitirmesini sevdim; zaten kitabın bitmesine çok az sayfa kalınca diğer kitaptaki gibi kesmeli biçmeli şeyler beklemiyordum ama güzel bitti. Gecenin 2'sinde bitirince böyle oluyor, sadece wow demek istiyorum.Ayrıca Tess Gerritsen tekrar söylüyorum, CANIMSIN.

  • CD Boulder Blvd

    Really this was a 2.5 star read. I did have a difficult time with the book version of Jane vs the series version. The series version is a much more engaging character and in this book, Jane was the typical stressed out and damaged female cop with way too many issues. The relationship with the FBI agent Dean seemed forced and thrown in. The ending seemed over too quick and didn't feel realistic.I'll continue to read a couple more in the series and hope this one was just not quite a fit for me.

  • Natalie

    It's summer again, and a new body's been found just outside of the Boston precinct. Korsak calls Rizzoli, believing as she does this has something to do with the Surgeon--even though he's behind bars. Even though she knows he's behind bars, the way everything is laid out at the crime scene convinces her that he's involved somehow.Too bad no one else believes that. Convinced Jane is obsessed with the Surgeon, Special Agent Dean of the FBI tries to get her removed from the case. But even when thei [...]

    4,5/5Fuardan bu kitabı alırken standdaki görevli kitaplardaki hikayelerin birbiriyle bağlantılı olmadığını, sırayla okumasam da bir şey olmayacağını söylemişti. Aslında öyle değilmiş, yan, tam olarak değil. Tamam yepyeni bir olay da oluyor ama aynı zamanda ilk kitaptaki katil geri dönüyor ve kitap boyunca ilk kitaptaki olaya da atıflar var.

  • Angelique

    Wat een gruwelijkheden komen langs, maar ook wel weer lekker makkelijk en vlot te lezen.Jane Rizzoli blijkt een softere kant te hebben, maar voelt zich nog steeds het gekwetste meisje. Waar dat nu echt vandaan komt is me nog niet zo duidelijk, al worden er wel wat redenen voor gegeven.We leren Dr. Maura Isles in dit verhaal ook kennen, maar heeft nog geen prominente rol.Verder zitten er wat herhalingen in, in de dingen die Rizzoli overkomt en in De Chirurg, de ontsnapte moordenaar.Beetje een cli [...]

    Die Geschichte fand ich sehr gut und spannend, aber ich hatte so meine Probleme mit den Charakteren (was aber der Serie zu Grunde liegt - da sind sie einfach sehr anders und liebenswerter). Auch kam mir Dr. Isles noch zu wenig vor, aber das ändert sich ja hoffentlich in den folgenden Bänden! Band 4 gab's kürzlich als Kindle-Deal, also werde ich mir den dritten demnächst auch holen :)
