Woohooo! Rizzoli and Isles to be on TNT

I have to say - I am a fan of the Tess Gerritson series that features Detective Rizzoli and Medical Examiner Maura Isles.  Indeed I just finished reading The Mephisto Club which I found a lot of fun.

So I was thrilled when I learned that TNT is well into producing a TV series featuring the characters. I can only hope that it doesn't take too much away from the books!

When The Mystery Book Club read one of the Rizzoli and Isles books a few years ago, it created a bit of strong dissension during discussion. Some absolutely did not like what they described as graphic gore. I guess I'm immune? I don't know, but I have enjoyed the series and especially the characters that Gerritson created.

I am usually not a fan of screen adaptations, but I will be interested to see how it goes. Premiers on TNT on July 12, 10 pm EDT.
