When different cultures and customs are misunderstood, mistakes in judgment are easy to make. Jane Rizzoli has that truth brought home to her when she begins to investigate a mass murder in a Chinese restaurant and the disappearance of a Chinese girl that took place twenty years earlier.
The author has used different characters to narrate their parts of the story. Usually, I find this technique annoying. However, in "The Silent Girl" this approach is effective as the author has used it to develop the characters and move the story. Suspense is maintained to the very end. This entry in the series was a bit different from others of the series.
I have always been a TG fan and love her books. But couldn't manage to watch much on TV though. Have any of the author's novels been made into the TV show?

This is only the beginning of the Chinatown mystery. Rather, it turns out to be something more like a prequel, because the manner of death leads the detectives to a martial arts studio, which in turn leads back to a year-old case that was labeled murder-suicide.
One widow, however, begs to differ. It turns out that there are complications — one cannot really call them coincidences, because there are too many connections.
But what — or who — is the true connection? We have the murder, and we also have the unsolved disappearances of a number of teenage girls. Are they related somehow? Rizzoli has her suspicions, but who — or what — is the strange figure that appears and vanishes in the dark?
This story was too good to put down. Maura Isles makes an appearance early on when she and Rizzoli have a bit of a falling out over the case of a cop shooting a prisoner.
Jane and Frost both have some personal family issues in this one as well, but for the most part, the story is about the case. I loved the Chinatown connection and the way that Ms Gerritsen wove in the martial arts, Chinese fables, and tales about the heroic Monkey King. Those traditions lent a mystique and sense of danger that added a plenty of interest and drama to the story.
Yes, there are a few bizarre moments in this one, with a spooky nearly invisible wushu fighter that may or may not be human. The plot had me guessing, and just when I thought I might have a handle on it, there were some big twists. Jane Rizzoli is her usual steady, stubborn self.
I always like Frost.
The Silent Girl (Rizzoli & Isles, #9) by Tess Gerritsen
We get to meet a potential rising star in The Silent Girl. He could become a liaison between the Chinese community and the police. Is there a link between the missing girls and the murders at the restaurant nearly two decades earlier? Was the cook truly innocent, as the widow of his friend believes? What happened to the girls? Are any of them alive? There are more questions as the story goes on, and Tess Gerritsen has constructed a fascinating tale this time around.

The car belonging to the dead woman is found and it has a handheld GPS with two addresses--a martial arts academy in Chinatown and a retired Boston police detective, Lou Ingersoll. Detectives Rizzoli and Frost soon fin 4. Detectives Rizzoli and Frost soon find links to a mass shooting that happened 19 tears ago.
It was closed out as a murder-suicide. Maura Isles, Boston M. Rizzoli and Frost start to ask questions and the puzzle just gets more difficult. I kept reading more and more, wanting answers. The case is resolved with a very satisfactory ending. This is book 9 in the series. There are side plots in the book, family issues with Jane Rizzoli's mom and police hostility towards Dr. Isles, whose testimony helped convict a Boston cop of murder. One humorous quote: From friends who have it.
I gotta get me some new friends. There are differences between the two and there are developments that carry through the book series, so they work better if read in order. Tess Gerritsen made a cameo appearance on the tv show a few months ago. This was a library book. View all 6 comments. Detective Jane Rizzoli and ME Maura Isles are called to a crime scene in Chinatown where a severed hand was found in an alley that eventually led to a female corpse on the rooftop of one of the adjacent buildings.
Clues are scarce but eventually lead them to a year old case where five people died in an apparent murder-suicide at a restaurant there in Chinatown. Also connected are two teenaged girls who are tied to the victims and disappeared shortly before and after the massacre. I was drawn Detective Jane Rizzoli and ME Maura Isles are called to a crime scene in Chinatown where a severed hand was found in an alley that eventually led to a female corpse on the rooftop of one of the adjacent buildings.
I was drawn into this story from the first chapter, which, consistent with every other book in this series, presents a scene that has no apparent context initially. There are quite a few dangling fragments from multiple events, each compelling on their own, but when connected make for quite the delicious cocktail. I had to pay attention to details, esoteric clues that were not particularly meaningful in the moment but when later attached to those dangling fragments, start to bring form and substance to this puzzle.
Another new narrator, Tanya Eby, who delivered another excellent performance. I find that as remarkable as this story. Oct 20, Paige Bookdragon rated it really liked it Shelves: Some kick-ass vigilantes are starring and I love learning more about Asian myth and culture.

I though this was very dark read by Gerritsen it takes you into the corrupt side of gangs a must read for all Gerritsen fans View 2 comments. Sep 25, Jenny rated it really liked it Shelves: A body was found on the top of a restaurant that has been closed for twenty years after five people were killed.
At first Detective Jan Rizzoli and Detective Frost thought this case was straightforward and easy to finish. However, this was not the case.
The Silent Girl (with bonus short story Freaks)
The readers of The Silent Girl will continue to follow the twists and turns in Detective Jane Rizzoli and Detective Frost investigation into the death of the young women. I enjoy reading The Silent Girl. The Rizzoli and Isles series is fantastic series. I do like Tess Gerritsen writing style and the way Tess Gerritsen describes her plots and portrays her characters. The Silent Girl did start slowly. However, once you got past the first couple of chapters, you will enjoy reading this book.
Tess Gerritsen did a great job in combining the twenty-five-year-old murder case with the present day murders. Readers of The Silent Girl will learn about Chinese legends and superstitions. Also, the problems that law enforcement have when investigating a murder in China Town. The Silent Girl highlights the problems and consequences for everyone involved with sexual assault on children.
I recommend this book. Oct 17, Steve rated it it was amazing. I think I've read all of Tess Gerritsen's books, and this may be her best yet. The dead woman seems to connect to a nineteen year old Chinatown case, too, and Rizzoli finds herself suddenly the outsider trying to finesse the culture that doesn't want to invite her in to do her usual job.
Gerritsen uses a separate first person POV for the first time I can remember, and handles the changing voices so fluently that many readers may not even notice.
A Rizzoli & Isles Novel
Gerritsen has taken new chances with this book, and they all work. I look forward to seeing her expanded cast of characters again soon. Apr 08, Sam Blake rated it it was amazing.
All day I have been watching the girl. What an impressive opening line…the best crime starts with a great hook, and this one drags you straight in by the hair. The murder of this woman with no ID links to a horrifying murder suicide that happened nineteen years earl All day I have been watching the girl.
The murder of this woman with no ID links to a horrifying murder suicide that happened nineteen years earlier in a Chinatown restaurant. Pathologist Maura Isles makes a break in the case, a break that leads Rizzoli to link the deaths of the five people in the restaurant to the deaths of many more.
Chilling, eminently believable, this book is deeply satisfyingly complex, touching on ancient Chinese myth and legend, antiquities — and family honour. With a double twists that you will NOT see, The Silent Girl ticks all the boxes to make it brilliant crime fiction, a book that will resonate long after you put it down.
We are watching a girl - ….. We are right there with the watcher, seeing this girl, hearing the sounds of the street, feeling darkness fall. Shwoing not telling at its very very best. This is a must read. Jul 27, Janellyn51 rated it really liked it. I was a little concerned before I started to read The Silent Girl, that now that I've been watching Rizzoli and Isles, I'd picture the actress' as opposed to the picture I had made in my mind of Jane, Frost, and Maura.
I'm glad that when I started reading, my character's that I see in my head were still firmly there. I enjoyed the book very much. I liked learning more about China Town and Chinese legends.
Jane hasn't changed much. Maura's a mess. IT seems to me, that this many books into the ser I was a little concerned before I started to read The Silent Girl, that now that I've been watching Rizzoli and Isles, I'd picture the actress' as opposed to the picture I had made in my mind of Jane, Frost, and Maura.
IT seems to me, that this many books into the series, or a series of books, the author no longer has to delve too deeply into the main character's personality traits, they've already been firmly established in the readers minds I kind of miss that. But, Tess Gerritsen leads Rizzoli and Frost on another merry chase, and I had a good time trying to figure out what the hell was going on, yet again!
Jul 22, Darlene rated it really liked it. I am a huge fan of Tess Gerritsen! This is number 9 in her Rizzoli and Isles series and it didn't disappoint. It was fast moving, suspenseful and I found myself staying up late at night so I could find out what happened next. This particular book features Rizzoli more so than Isles and although both characters are interesting, I especially love Rizzoli's attitude and spunk!! This particular book took place in Boston's Chinatown and I really enjoyed reading about that neighborhood and the subseq I am a huge fan of Tess Gerritsen!
This particular book took place in Boston's Chinatown and I really enjoyed reading about that neighborhood and the subsequent Chinese folklore that was described throughout the story. My only regret is that now I will have to wait for the next book in the series! This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
