What if your child wanted you dead?
Julia is terrified by her daughter's aggressive behaviour. Lily has changed from an angelic little girl into someone she is afraid to be alone with.
What scares Julia most, though, is that she knows why Lily is acting this way, but no-one will believe her. If she is going to help Lily, she will have to find the answers alone, embarking on a search that will take her to the shadowy back streets of Venice.
There Julia finds far more than just answers, and uncovers a heartbreaking, long-buried tale of tragedy and devastation. And this discovery has put her in serious danger . . .
'I defy you to read the first chapter and not singe your fingers reading all the rest. It’s that compelling. It’s that good.' DAVID BALDACCI

From a fan living in London, UK,
Hotly anticipated new novel. I'm an avid fan, I pre-ordered Playing with Fire as soon as I heard about it. As usual, Tess Gerritsen has researched her subject thoroughly, and written a twisted psychological tale, transcending time and place. Her pen paints, plays, sings and you feel the heartache, the unrequited love, the battle of well-wishers working against the monsters of history. The composition is beautiful as it is haunting. A very talented author who takes us on several journeys - inside and outside the psyche. Extremely enjoyable. I applaud you, Madam.
Really, how does this lady write with such brilliant consistency regardless of the genre.
Having read all the rizzoli & Isles books, I had real reservations that Playing with Fire would fall short on what i had come to expect from this great author however I certainly wasn't disappointed, the skill, passionate and flair for detail was delightful and yet another triumph.well done Tess Gerritson.
Could not get into this book.
