Tess Gerritsen – The Shape of Night


A woman trying to outrun her past is drawn to a coastal village in Maine – and to a string of unsolved murders – in this novel of romance and psychological suspense from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen.

Suspenseful, sexy, and soulful. –J. R. Ward, bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series

After an unspeakable tragedy in Boston, Ava Collette flees to a remote village in Maine, where she rents an old house named Brodies Watch.

In that isolated seaside mansion, Ava finally feels at peace…until she glimpses the long-dead sea captain who still resides there.

Rumor has it that Captain Jeremiah Brodie has haunted the house for more than a century. One night, Ava confronts an apparition, who feels all too real, and who welcomes her into his world – and into his arms. Even as Ava questions her own sanity, she eagerly looks forward to the captains ghostly visits. But she soon learns that the house she loves comes with a terrible secret, a secret that those in the village dont want to reveal: Every woman who has ever lived in Brodies Watch has also died there. Is the ghost of Captain Brodie responsible, or is a flesh-and-blood killer at work? A killer who is even now circling closer to Ava?

Praise for The Shape of Night

This book reminds me why I love reading. I wish this were a series so I could spend more time in Tucker’s Cove. Tess Gerritsen is a writer I look up to! –J.R. Ward, bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series

Reminiscent of the best of du Maurier, this modern gothic is eerie, tantalizing, spine-tingling, and sensual…. An altogether delicious read. –Sandra Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author

With a twisty mix of dangerous passion, obsession, and suspense, Tess Gerritsen reinvents the Gothic novel, giving it a razor-sharp, modern edge. –Jayne Ann Krentz, New York Times bestselling author of Untouchable

I am returning this book. If it didnt have Tess Garritsens name on it I would have never guessed that this book was written by her. I really enjoy her procedurals but this book is a little too far out there for me. I could only make it through about half the book before I quit. Unless youre into bondage with a little sadism that includes a ghostly apparition (dont know what else to call him ) then this gothic story may not be for you. I hope Garritsen returns to writing her Rizzoli and Isles or something more realistic.
