For countless years, the perfectly preserved mummy lay forgotten in the dusty basement of Boston’s Crispin Museum. The recently rediscovered mummy, dubbed “Madam X”, is believed to be an artifact from ancient Egypt.

But coroner Maura Isles discovers a macabre message hidden within the body: chilling evidence that this “century-old” relic is a modern-day murder victim. When the grisly remains of two other women are found, Maura and Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli realize a lunatic is on the loose. Now Maura and Jane must unravel a killer’s twisted ending before the archeology killer adds another terrifying artifact to his monstrous collection.

Gerritsen is a master at putting all the little pieces together into a big puzzle. His earlier novels showed his penchant for realistic and likeable characters, dramatic themes, and surprising plot twists. This book represents a step forward in her development as a writer in the detective/mystery genre as she develops puzzles and clues with ever-increasing skill.

As with classic crime novels, there are diversionary maneuvers and levels of plot development that intertwine. It started off a bit slow, but quickly picked up speed as Gerritsen once again demonstrated her talent for creating tense and eerie scenes, using backgrounds and atmospherics to build tension. All the characters/suspects are introduced at the beginning of the story, and by the end of it, I feel like I could have solved the mystery, but I didn’t.

It’s a quick and easy read, the skill not in the complexity but in the deft plot twists and turns. I also enjoyed the performances and theories of the Mephisto Club.
Highly recommended for the lovers of the mystery genre books.

The book begins with a flashback before jumping to the present like most of Gerritsen’s books. Arriving in the present, Dr. Isles joins a team that is about to discover an ancient mummy. During the trial, they discover that the mummy nicknamed Madam X is not a mummy from ancient times. Rather, she is a victim who was killed years ago.

More bodies of women who were murdered and whose bodies were kept in almost the same mansion as Madam X’s turn up. An employee of the Crispin Museum has a dark secret and seems to know more than she tells the police. Aside from that, there are also some developments in Maura and Jane’s personal lives, as well as a big change in Detective Frost’s life.

I personally felt like the archeology almost stole the show here, but it was still interesting to learn about these facts. If Mrs. Gerritsen ever decides to write an adventure novel, I bet it would be an interesting read. There are plenty of twists and turns here that will keep you guessing. One of the great things about crime writing is a surprising (and maybe even shocking) read with a revelation they never saw coming. And that is one of the main highlights of the book. So I really recommend everyone to read it.

When the ancient Egyptians mummified their dead, they often placed amulets and jewelry inside the linen cases. Finding such treasures in a 2,000-year-old mummy is not uncommon, but Madam X is full of surprises.

After a CT scan revealed a bullet in the mummy’s leg and modern dental work in the jaw, Coroner Maura Isles and Boston Police Detective Jane Rizzoli face a murder investigation. The mummy was recently discovered in an unlabeled box in the basement of the Crispin Museum, a small family-owned museum in the Boston area. When Jane and her partner, Barry Frost, discover more preserved human remains in the museum’s storage area, they realize they have a highly intelligent and unorthodox serial killer on the loose.

The discovery leaves her with more questions than answers. What drives the Archeology Killer (as the press calls him)? Why does he go to such lengths to save his victims? What connection does she have with the Egyptologist Josephine Pulcillo, a woman who, like Madame X, keeps many secrets of her own? Most importantly, how do you stop him before he claims another victim?

As someone with a lifelong love of archeology (Egyptology in particular), I really enjoyed the archaeological elements in The Keepsake. The book was so vividly atmospheric and creepy that I looked over my shoulder more than once while reading it, just in case.

Tess Gerritsen has created another frightening and fast-paced thriller that is sure to delight fans of the Rizzoli/Isles mystery series. Readers unfamiliar with Gerritsen’s writing will also find The Keepsake highly accessible and entertaining.
