Dr Maura Isles Has Been Found!

Jane is not without her Maura afterall! Many thanks to @Rizzoli_isles who took the photo of the missing half of the billboard.

A recap is in order

ImageCheck this out - Lori sent me a pic of a Angie Harmon as Rizzoli in a Rizzoli billboard..what's missing? Can we play spot the difference? Where the heck has Maura gone? Interesting, yes?

Just calling the show "Rizzoli" just doesn't have the same zing to it.

well here is the missing part of a very strange billboard that takes a corner


As you can see Maura is where she should be...right next to Jane :)

Very odd billboard. Many thanks again to @Rizzoli_Isles for undertaking the hazardous duty of going in search of Maura. Mystery solved, no need to call Rizzoli...she's a little under the weather as it is so let's not bother her :)

Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen New Rizzoli & Isles Nove + Review

ImageI was just reading the review for Ice Cold, the new Rizzoli & Isles novel by Tess Gerritsen; it sounds like a very good read.

Click here to order it from

Boston medical examiner Maura Isles is in Wyoming for a conference. Impulsively, she joins an old friend and his daughter on a ski trip. When their vehicle breaks down, they’re stranded in the eerily named Kingdom Come, a small community whose residents appear to have vanished. Then Maura vanishes. The announcement of her death shocks homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, Maura’s close friend. Investigating Kingdom Come, Rizzoli uncovers dark secrets that may explain Maura’s disappearance. Gerritsen wouldn’t be the first writer to kill off a popular series character, but is that what she’s doing here? Fans of the novels will no doubt suspect Gerritsen has a few tricks up her sleeve, and surely the upcoming television series based on the Isles-Rizzoli mysteries would seem to suggest that this is a very bad time to kill off Maura. Leaving aside this rather unnecessary subterfuge, the novel is a solid entry in the series, with a compelling mystery and some good, old-fashioned shockers. A solid choice for Gerritsen fans, but probably not the best starting point for those new to the series. --David Pitt


“Ice Cold: A Rizzoli & Isles novel” by Tess Gerritsen. Ballantine Books, New York, 2010. 322 pages. $26.

Reading “Ice Cold,” Tess Gerritsen’s newest suspense thriller, in an August heat wave seems like it would be a good foil to the ubiquitous whine of the air conditioner. In Gerritsen’s latest Rizzoli & Isles novel, there’s so much snow in Wyoming ski country that it’s tough to find out where the bodies are buried and so much ice that cars careen off steep cliffs. Roads are closed for the season and bodies pile up like cordwood.

There’s a but here. If you happen to live in an area that’s prone to snow and ice, denial is going to make it hard to let go and let winter prematurely enter your thoughts.

Once you’ve accomplished that mental feat, which frankly isn’t hard when you’re in the hands of a competent storyteller like Gerritsen, you’re on your way to a pretty good beach read. “Ice Cold” is the perfect fare for one last long lazy afternoon loll as summer comes to a close. I should note that Gerritsen lives in Maine and knows how to make snow and ice feel cold and miserable.

Tess Blogs about Rizzoli & Isles Fanfic

ImageTess Gerritsen, Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles' creator / mother has written a blog about how she feels that her girls are being used by fanfic authors in their stories and in particular Rizzles fanfic (Rizzles is Rizzoli & Isles lesbian fic). Tess compares it to Kirk / Spock (IMO it's more like Xena and Gabrielle)

In part she says:

Since the creation of the TV show “Rizzoli & Isles,” it seems there’s a whole universe of fan fiction writers who love my characters so much they want to write their own stories about them. Yes, I created Jane and Maura. They will always be my girls. But I’m also thrilled that, for so many fans, these characters are like real people. It’s almost as if Jane and Maura have become flesh and blood and walked out into the world, where they’re living in the heads of a multitude of readers and TV viewers. All because I dreamed them up.

Rizzoli & Isles Review by The Newark Examiner 16 September 2010


The Newark Examiner has a great review of my favourite Rizzoli & Isles season finale "When the Gun Goes Bang, Bang, Bang".

Rizzoli & Isles - When the Gun Goes Bang, Bang, Bang - Reviewed by Gillian Herschman

Summary: A savage gang that killed an undercover officer now targets Boston homicide headquarters for an attack, with Jane, Maura and Frankie Jr. trapped and fighting for survival.

Review: Wow. This season ended with a bang. Literally.

It took awhile to collect my thoughts after this episode's cliffhanger ending. It's not the most compelling cliffhanger I've ever seen, but the episode as a whole does a pretty good job of making you wish the next season would start today.

Rizzoli Takes Action - Season Finale Video

On 'Rizzoli & Isles' (Mon., 10PM ET on TNT), a dirty cop (Bobby) has trapped Detective Jane Rizzoli and her colleague and friend Maura Isles inside the Boston police station. When Bobby decides to escape, he thinks dragging Rizzoli along with him is a good idea. It does start out that way: Her body sufficiently blocks his from the vigilant officers standing outside. No one can get a clean shot at him without endangering Rizzoli. "Drop the gun, Bobby! Don't make it worse on yourself -- let her go!" shouts Detective Korsak. Rizzoli screms, "Shoot him! Just shoot him!" But nobody budges. The detective takes matters into her own hands -- and Isles witnesses the horrific turn of events.

Stellar Season Finale of Rizzoli & Isles

Rizzoli and Isles 109 4 Angie Harmon Sasha Alexander PH Danny Feld 19293 012 0790 R

Just watched the season finale of Rizzoli & Isles “When the Gun Goes Bang, Bang, Bang” and boy didn't the gun go bang bang bang bang! That was one terrific episode to end a stellar first season of this wonderful show!

If you have not been watching this show, fire up Itunes and watch! - Rizzoli & Isles is one hell of a great show! Standout performances by Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander; just superb.

I read spoilers that my friends were kind enough to email me with earlier in the day and then I raced home to fire up Itunes and watch Even knowing what was coming, it blew me away (no pun intended).

LOVE Jane and Maura! What a great team and LOVED Jane at the end; very heroic! Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander, what a terrific team! They have such great chemistry that I've only seen in only two other female dominate partnerships: Cagney & Lacey and Xena & Gabrielle. Super chemistry between those two.

I'm quite sure that while we are waiting for the second season (slated to be 13 episodes) there will be a ton of fanfic and in particular finding a way to help Jane! <g> Keep checking the fanfic site - Blondegirl14 has already got her alternate ending called Three Days up! Fast work that!

Season Finale- “When the Gun Goes Bang, Bang, Bang” – Monday, Sept. 13, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)
Directed by Michael M. Robin / Written by Janet Tamaro

After an undercover cop working a narcotics-smuggling sting is shot dead, the killers next turn their sites on Boston homicide headquarters, leaving Jane, Maura and Frankie Jr. trapped in a fight for survival on their home turf. It’s a situation that will force Maura to challenge herself like never before. Chazz Paliminteri (A Bronx Tale) and Erik Palladino (ER) guest-star.

Angie & Sasha Interview with Pop Culture Madness


Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander interview with Pop Culture Madness.

PCM recently had the opportunity to partake in a conference call with Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander, the two leading ladies of TNT's new hit series, Rizzoli and Isles.

Rizzoli and Isles is a series about a Boston detective (Angie Harmon) and a medical examiner (Sasha Alexander), two individuals from completely different ends of the spectrum, and how they work together to solve crimes and make it through the day.

But this isn't the first crime series either of the leading actresses have starred in. Angie broke out thanks to her role as ADA Abbie Carmichael on Law & Order and Sasha is best known for her spot as beloved Agent Caitlin Todd on NCIS.

Since her departure from NCIS, Sasha has starred in a show called The Nine and made eight movies. Now with her four-year-old son, she undoubtedly sees that her work has changed. "You know it just allows you know your access to your emotions even more than it already did.

Her devotion to logic and science leads to her tendency to diagnose the people she meets, which makes for some socially awkward situations.

During an interview to promote the series premiere, actress Sasha Alexander talked about what made her want to return to series television and how much she enjoys working with co-star Angie Harmon.

'Rizzoli & Isles': make a dynamic crime-solving duo

Image'Rizzoli & Isles': Angie Harmon, Sasha Alexander make a dynamic crime-solving duo - Zap2It 8 July 2010

They've tackled crimes on television separately, and now, they're teaming up to solve new ones.

Angie Harmon ("Law & Order," "Women's Murder Club") and Sasha Alexander ("NCIS") are "Rizzoli & Isles" in a TNT mystery series debuting Monday, July 12. Inspired by novels by Tess Gerritsen, the show follows the Boston-based cases of police detective Jane Rizzoli (Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Alexander), whose friendship endures despite their differing backgrounds, temperaments and agendas.

"You know what? I am having the best time," Harmon says. "Sasha Alexander is one of the most wonderful women I've ever met, and I keep thinking, 'I must have done something right somewhere to end up in a situation like this.' It's like going to school every day, or to work every day with your friends. It's just so fun."

Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander Talk Rizzoli & Isles


Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander Talk Rizzoli & Isles - MovieWeb 12 July 2010

Actress Angie Harmon has a habit of choosing TV projects about tough, independent female cops, which are based on popular crime novels. It began in 2007 when the former Law & Order actress starred on the critically successful but short-lived police procedural, Women's Murder Club, based on the books by author James Patterson.

She now returns to television and the genre with a new series entitled, Rizzoli & Isles, which is based on the series of novels by author Tess Gerritsen. On the show, Harmon stars as Jane Rizzoli, a no nonsense Boston police detective that juggles her professional life along with her over-protective family, which includes her mother Angela played by Lorraine Bracco (Goodfellas).

Harmon's co-star on the show, actress Sasha Alexander from NCIS and the feature film Yes Man, plays Rizzoli's best friend and medical examiner Maura Isles, who in stark contrast to Jane has a flare for fashion. Together the two solve crimes and stop bad-guys much like the classic female TV detectives from the '1980s, Cagney & Lacey.

ImageMeet Tess Gerritsen, the mastermind of 'Rizzoli & Isles'

Bad guys, beware! A new crime-solving duo is hitting the streets. On Monday, TNT launches the drama Rizzoli & Isles (10 p.m. ET/PT) starring Angie Harmon (Law & Order) and Sasha Alexander (NCIS).

The show is inspired by medical thrillers written by best-selling author Tess Gerritsen, 57. She spoke with USA TODAY.

Q: You introduced Boston detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles in The Surgeon (2001) and just published the eighth book in the series, Ice Cold (Ballantine, $26). What was your inspiration for these strong female characters?

A: Jane is very much like every female cop I've ever interviewed. They're tough and they have to work really, really hard to be respected. I wrote her with a little bit of a chip on her shoulder.

Q: And Maura Isles?

A: Maura is very much me. Logical, scientific. She feels more comfortable with dead people than the living. She's kind of introspective. A lot of the biographical details about her, such as where she went to school and what wine she drinks and what car she drives, are really pretty much from my life.

Q: Do Harmon and Alexander bring these characters to life?

A: Angie is more beautiful than I imagined Rizzoli to be. And I had to see her perform to see that, yeah, she's got the point of view. She really is Jane. She has the personality. Sasha is also very close to Maura's personality in the books, except a little more girly. Physically, she's different from the character in the books, but I think readers will be able to adjust.

Rizzoli and Isles Heading to Canada in October

S1epis11Hit drama series Rizzoli & Isles stars Angie Harmon (Law & Order) as Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and Sasha Alexander (NCIS) as chief medical examiner Maura Isles. Based on books The Surgeon and The Apprentice by internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen, the record-breaking series premieres exclusively for Canadians Oct. 5 at 10 p.m. ET in vivid HD on Super Channel, Canada’s only national English pay television network.

“The premiere of Rizzoli & Isles in the US claimed the record as cable’s #1 commercial-supported series launch of all time, with 7.6 million viewers. Not just a fluffy, girl power series, this is an extremely well done, gritty and occasionally gruesome drama that delves into the unpleasant side of humanity,” Sandy Perkins, Super Channel, Vice President Programming. “I am certain that everyone will be thrilled with the suspense and surprises skillfully woven through this series. Super Channel is proud to offer it uncut and commercial free.”

Rizzoli, as the only female cop in Boston's homicide division, is tough, relentless and rarely lets her guard down. The impeccably dressed Isles displays a sometimes icy temperament –after all she’s more comfortable among the dead than the living. Together, the best friends' quirky and supportive relationship allows them to combine their expertise to solve Boston's most complex cases.

Also starring in Rizzoli & Isles are Jordan Bridges as Frankie Rizzoli Jr., Jane's younger brother and a patrol cop who hopes to follow in his sister's detective footsteps; Lee Thompson Young as Barry Frost, the likable but green detective Rizzoli is partnered with; Bruce McGill as Vince Korsak, a veteran detective and Rizzoli's former partner, who has a soft spot for rescuing furry animals; and Emmy®, Golden Globe and Academy Award® nominee Lorraine Bracco as Rizzoli's outspoken mother, Angela. From Hurdler Productions and Ostar Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television, the series is produced by Janet Tamaro, Bill Haber and Joel Fields and distributed around the world by Warner Bros. International Television Distribution.
