Beschreibung

“This is one of Gerritsen’s best mysteries ever, with Ava Collette an unlikely heroine you’ll never easily forget. Pick up a copy—you might be left breathless and reeling, but you won’t be disappointed.”
—Lisa Jackson, #1 New York Times bestselling author

 


The Shape of Night is reading gold—thought-provoking, loaded with suspense, with an ending to knock your socks off.”
—Catherine Coulter, #1 New York Times bestselling author

 

“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

 

“This book reminds me why I love reading. Tess Gerritsen is a writer I look up to!”
—J. R. Ward, #1 New York Times bestselling author 

 

“A captivating and seductive tale exploring the dark embrace of grief and guilt, reminding us that nothing can haunt us as insidiously as our personal demons.”
—Sylvia Day, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“This supernatural thriller from bestseller Gerritsen ranks with the best of her crime fiction. . . . This magnetic haunted house story will keep readers riveted from the very first page.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)


“A spellbinding thriller. . . Gerritsen shifts a murder mystery into a Gothic thriller, replete with an unsteady widow's walk, secret alcove, strange smells, ominous sensations, and the ghost. The prologue echoes the dream of Manderley from Du Maurier’s 
Rebecca. . . . This riveting Gothic thriller explores the limits of love, guilt, and punishment.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Gerritsen creates an atmospheric scene with the mansion and the Maine coastline, and readers will almost feel the breeze and hear the waves crashing against the rocks. The main story of Ava, who may—or may not—be descending into madness, is compelling, and a clever twist or two steers the narrative in unexpected ways. . . . Another winner for Gerritsen.”
—Associated Press

 

“Tess Gerritsen has had the ‘it’ factor for a long time, and she continues to show that no matter what she pens, it will rock!” 
—Suspense

 

“Gerritsen is a masterful plotter and her talents honed in decades of crime fiction translate perfectly to the new form, with a slow, satisfying drip of secrets and revelations.”
—CrimeReads

 

“An exciting supernatural thriller.”
—TheRealBookSpy


The Shape of Night expertly blends mystery with romance and speculative fiction. Better yet, in a novel featuring death and the afterlife, this book is as comforting as a cup of cocoa on a winter’s day or a roaring fire in the midst of an October rainstorm.”
—New York Journal of Books

 

“Fans . . . will follow Gerritsen’s . . . story through the realms of mystery, paranormal romance, erotica, and psychological suspense to its compelling conclusion.” 
—Library Journal

“A quick read that will appeal to fans of the genre.”
—Booklist

“A haunting romantic thriller with an irresistible Gothic twist, this is one of Gerritsen’s best.”

—BarnesandNoble.com

An alcoholic and her randy ghost

I've read several books by Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli & Isles as well as a medical thriller and a historical (medical) thriller. All were really good. Something I sadly cannot say about "The Shape of Night". After the first few chapters I was reminded of "Remember Me" by Mary Higgins Clark, a book I enjoyed very much, even though it contains supernatural stuff. But then Gerritsen throws in "Fifty Shades of Grey" as well, and that is so not my cup of tea of all. I couldn't relate to the main character Ava, so I didn't care for her very much. And lastly, the author doesn't make enough out of the turn the story takes towards the ending.

The Shape of the night
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Harsum am 04.01.2020
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Wirklich spannendes Buch, wenn man bereit ist sich auf ein bisschen "Psycho" Fantasien einzulassen, die aber im Lauf des Lesens erklärbar werden.
