Vanish By Tess Gerritsen (Rizzoli & Isles 5)

Maura is overwhelmed by bodies coming into her morgue from an accident. Once she is finally done and preparing to leave she hears a sound from the freezer. When she finally checks it out she discovers one of the victims are actually alive. She calls for an ambulance and rushes her to the Emergency Room. Det. Jane Rizzoli is not faring much better. She is testifying in court and worried about her baby because she’s well past her due date. While on the stand her water breaks and she gets rushed to the Emergency Room too.

The woman Maura found alive is named Fierce Olena. She’s dedicated herself to destroying someone in the government who turned her friends into slaves and murdered them. She causes so much trouble in the hospital that they evacuate it. However, not everyone got out. Fierce has taken Jane and other people hostage inside the hospital. Tense negations take place while Jane’s husband, FBI agent Gabriel Dean, tries to find out who the hostage takers are. The Feds swoop in and kill all the hostage takers saving the day. But the fact that they took the bodies and the evidence doesn’t sit well with Jane.

Who’s the person responsible for the murders that triggered Fierce Olena? What does Jane name the baby? Why did the Feds take everything? Are they hiding something?
