Playing With Fire: Tries to Be Da Vinci Code But Fails

6 Aug

Tess Gerrittset, the author of the various Rizzoli & Isles novels, is a good writer, and this feels like it might have been a good book…except that its not. Characters are articulated, plots are set up, and then none of it matters. I kept pushing through waiting for pieces to come together, and they never did. Hints of a possessed child, a crazy mom, evil plots like the Da Vinci Code… and [spoiler alert] it’s all BS. I don’t really know what to make of this. I’d give this 3.5 stars if I could – the actual words on a page part is good, but it doesn’t add up as a story. Maybe she’s waiting for the Hollywood adaptation to flesh it out into something that pays off.
