TITLE: THE MEPHISTO CLUB
AUTHOR: TESS GERRITSEN
Details: nr. 6 Dr. Maura Isles & Jane Rizolli Mystery
When a woman is found murdered and dismembered, Jane Rizolli and Dr. Maura Isles know they have to be dealing with a very twisted person.
The second victim they find is a fellow police officer. She is found in the garden of a house belonging to a man who the Mephisto Club. A group of people studying and confronting evil in it's purest form. Somehow the murders are connected to this group and to a young woman, who doesn't want to be found.
And although Maura and Jane don't believe in Evil being more than a very human "character flaw", they have to work with the Mephisto club in order to confront the one performing these evil acts.
The theory that there are those among us who are pure evil, with an ancestry that makes them so, is one I find interesting. After all, who knows why some people do horrendous things without a second thought, take pleasure from it. We just call them sociopaths and terms like that, not knowing what makes them so.
