Tess Gerritsen’s The Keepsake is the sixth book in the Rizzoli & Isles series. I have read each of the first six books in the series. While I have enjoyed all of them, The Keepsake is my new favorite.
The story really starts when a mummy is found in the basement of a Boston museum. Everyone is shocked when a bullet wound in the leg proves the mummy wasn’t from ancient Egypt. When more remains are found in the museum’s basement, it’s obvious a killer is in the area.
As the story unfolds, we discover archeologist Josephine Pulcillo past is very different than she has been saying; in fact, the murders have a lot to do with Josephine and her mother.
The Keepsake was such a good book that I read it in a single night. While I really like the Rizzoli & Isles series, this one is a step above. The relationships that play out in this story give it a whole different look. I love the character and relationship development Gerritsen created here.
If you love a good mystery with interesting characters and relationships, you will love The Keepsake.
