The Keepsake

The seventh book in the "Rizzoli and Isles" series.  Tess Gerritsen will not disappoint.  Maura was asked to witness a CT scan on a mummy found in the Boston's Crispin Museum basement.  Instead of confirming a newly discovered ancient mummy, they found out that it really was a well preserved modern day murder victim.  Later, they also found a shrunken head behind a wall in the museum.  The theory that this is a series leading to the ultimate victim was confirmed when Josephine an archaelogist working for the museum found a "bog" preserved body in her trunk.  Josephine has a deeply kept secret that has come to haunt her.  The suspect is somebody who knows Egyptology and ancient rituals in body preservation.  The twists and turns in the story will keep you engrossed.

If you haven't read the previous books in the series, you will miss out on some of the details on the personal lives of both Rizzoli and Isles.  But every book is a different case, so they can also be read as stand alones.
