The Surgeon is the first book in the Rizzoli and Isles series, however Maura Isles was not introduced to us in this book, only Jane Rizzoli. What I really enjoyed about The Surgeon was that was that we really got into the detailed story-line and advanced into it just as the detectives did.
In Boston, there is a killer on the loose. A killer who only hunts lone women, breaks into their apartments and performs ritualistic acts of torture on them. A killer who has been named “the surgeon”.
With no leads on the investigation, the detectives make a shocking discovery- a beautiful doctor named Catherine Cordell was subjected to a horrifying rape and potential murder in Savannah but shot the killer dead. “The surgeon” seems to be replicating what the killer did to Catherine and this time, he knows exactly where to find her.
