Fortunately, Keeping the Dead or The Keepsake as it is called in other countries returns the series to what we know and love. It may not be my number one read in the series, but it was certainly a wonderful addition to the overall storyline. Keeping the Dead gives us something we all love: As someone who enjoys history and archaeology, this book gave us a lot of fun stuff to deal with.
I can imagine for some people such will not be the case, but I really enjoyed the elements of this tale related to history. It made for a grizzly yet interesting tale — exactly what you want from crime fiction. As with the prior book, however, I did find myself rather disinterested in some of the elements of personal life. I liked how some elements from The Mephisto club made a reappearance, but at the same time I felt it was a bit forced in regards to adding more drama to one of the personal life elements.
Overall, though, this was a great addition to the series. Hat mir wie immer sehr gut gefallen: Ich liebe Rizzoli und Isles: Wauw wat een boek weer! Ik vond het archeologische aspect van deze boeken erg leuk, eens wat anders dan een standaard moord haha.

Er is een verschil met de vorige delen. Dat vond ik wel leuk.

Het begon namelijk een beetje eentonig te worden dat ze de zaak steeds in haar eentje oplost. Al was zij wel degene die wist hoe de zaak in elkaar stak. En op het laatst zat het mysterie toch anders in elkaar dan gedacht. Al klopte een vermoeden van mij op het einde wel. Toch is het verhaal niet te voorspelbaar. Ik vind het altijd wel leuk als er een link met Nederland is. Hoe klein dat ook is. Tess Gerritsen's seventh novel in the series is once again a fast paced read that's hard to put down, especially with Rizzoli being at her wittiest, sarcastic best.
This time it's the archeological or egyptian theme, to put it more precisely, that keeps the two leading ladies busy. Once again a well written book that certainly does the whole series justice, it felt like there could have been a bit more details regarding the personal lives of Rizzoli and Isles, as there are threads that lead throu Tess Gerritsen's seventh novel in the series is once again a fast paced read that's hard to put down, especially with Rizzoli being at her wittiest, sarcastic best. Once again a well written book that certainly does the whole series justice, it felt like there could have been a bit more details regarding the personal lives of Rizzoli and Isles, as there are threads that lead through all the novels and which now have been barely touched on.
On the other hand it's great how Gerritsen focused on the working relationship with her partner Frost. Another thing I noticed is that the story remotely resembles the "theme of the abducted woman", which readers of the series will already know from the first two novels.

This doesn't make the whole book bad, especially with a very different setting, but still. This book is certainly not the weakest in the series, but all in all more mediocre than standing out. View all 13 comments. I enjoyed the book. It had an interesting background story of archaeology and it kept me hooked to the end.
It is written in a very easy to read style with just the right amount of description mixed with plenty of action. I was glad it didn't get too bogged down in forensic or police procedural detail. There was just the amount needed to keep the story moving at a fast pace. The book starts with the CT scan of what is supposed to be an ancient mummy but when a modern day bullet is discovered in h I enjoyed the book.
The book starts with the CT scan of what is supposed to be an ancient mummy but when a modern day bullet is discovered in her body we have a good mystery that needs solving. Although there were some twists towards the end there were no great surprises. All in all a very pleasant read I can recommend.
Keeping the Dead (Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles, book 7) by Tess Gerritsen
Oct 31, Lewis Weinstein rated it really liked it Shelves: Complicated plot, interesting setting and background in the worlds of archeology and museums. More than a little gruesome. Unusual in that there are several characters of more or less equal standing. First one in this series I've read. View all 6 comments. Jun 20, April Thompson rated it it was amazing. Best of the series in my humble opinion.
This had all of the features of a great thriller. I picked this book up and was hooked from the beginning and could not get enough. It inspired a few moments of intense nervousness of my part.
That doesn't happen often. Once again a most enjoyable read and one that kept me up all night, with promises to myself of 'just one more chapter and then I'll go to sleep,' which never happened. One tired chicken this morning. People are really sick and twisted and it's no wonder that Dr Isles prefers to work with the dead. The dead can't hurt you. Egyptology has always fascinated me and I have always wondered how the bodies were mummified.

Tess Gerritsen, explains the different processes in such clear detail, that I am once again hooked on the subject matter. What a page turner - now I have post-book blues again. Mummies, veenlijken, moeraslijken, gekrompen hoofden en een Hollander die de revue passeert. Er gebeurt van alles en het is tot op het laatst niet helemaal duidelijk hoe het nu precies zit. Veel info over archeologie en egyptologie, ook heel interessant. Nov 06, LJ rated it really liked it Shelves: He is coming for me. A year-old mummy has been discovered in the basement of the Crespin Museum in Boston.
With much fanfare and publicity, it has been brought to Pilgrim Hospital for CT scan analysis. Maura Isles, on of those in attendance, soon realizes something is amiss. The corpse within has a modern dental filling and a bullet in her leg. The mummy is transferred to the morgue and the case assigned to Det. When a second, then third corpse that has been transformed into the appearance of an ancient artifact the police realize something is out of sync with archeologist Joesphine Pulcillo, working at the museum and the focus of the artifacts.
I should know by now that a book by Gerritsen is one I have to finish the same day I start it. She know how to hook you in, take you down a very twisty road, build the suspense and keep you going to the very last sentence. I also enjoyed the historical and archeological information, both of those being fascinating to me. The characters are interesting and fully developed. Jane Rizzola is a tough New Yorker, married and a mother; Maura Iles is refined, elegant and in a hopeless relationship.
This theme was well-played in the story with a subtlety that offset the violence. Her dialogue and sense of place supported this theme. Gerritsen is a very good writer and always a sleepless pleasure to read. Aug 31, Dustin Crazy little brown owl rated it it was amazing Shelves: I will re-reading this amazing book yet again and I will also be using The Keepsake to meet the following requirement for the Summer Reading Challenge in the Dare to Dream Group: Tess Gerritsen is at the top of her game with The Keepsake - the best novel I've read in a long time!
I was really impressed with Gerritsen's The Bone Garden: A Novel published , and thought it was her finest work to date, but The Keepsake may be even better! I am a slow reader, and was able to read the pages of The Keepsake in less than a week. Chapters 17,18, and 19 seemed a little slow to me but the rest of the book is full of surprises!
One thing that helps make this book so great is having Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles working together again. As an added bonus to a fascinating story, readers learn how the process of mummification works, how to create a "bog body" and are given detailed instruction on how to make a shrinking head please don't practice these methods on your neighbors! Also in The Keepsake, we learn the dire consequences of having a disorganized museum of freaky items that you can't account for.

However, in Gerritsen's hands, this book turns decidedly creepy. As a result, it's hard not to feel at least a little scared while reading. I enjoy In the hands of many authors, this would probably be a fairly run-of-the-mill serial killer thriller, albeit one with some unusual aspects involving how the victims' bodies get preserved. I enjoy the Rizzoli and Isles books quite a bit, but they are much darker than the TV series would lead one to believe. Mais uma historia empolgante desta vez abordadando temas como a arquelogia, rituais de embalsamento.
