Review: FREAKS by Tess Gerritsen

This short story is available as a free download from the iBooks store via your IOS devices, and features the two characters that Tess is known for the best, namely Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles.

Freaks is a fun read for existing fans, but it's not perfect. There are glimmers of the characters we know and love, but the limited length of the piece doesn't leave room for more than broad strokes. The plot is different for a Gerritsen tale, and does suit the short form very well.

 It reads a little like a YA story and ends rather abruptly, but hey, it's a free Tess Gerritsen story and as such it should be enjoyed. A nice, quick read. Read the novels - they're excellent!
