Created by Tess Gerritsen and developed for television by Janet Tamaro, Rizzoli & Isles revolves around Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry and strong working relationship that lets them solve complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston. The drama series is produced by Warner Horizon Television and stars Angie Harmon, Sasha Alexander, Lorraine Bracco, Bruce McGill, Lee Thompson Young, Jordan Bridges and Brian Goodman.
In the show’s 15 episode third season, Jane and Maura’s relationship is feeling the strain after the shooting of Maura’s father, Paddy Doyle. Their friendship is pushed to the breaking point when they are taken by surprise by an internal affairs investigation. Ever the professionals, Jane and Maura will work hard to set aside their differences as they investigate a number of complex and troublesome crimes. Among their cases are the murder of a female graduate student, whose strangled body is found hidden in tunnels under her university; a killer with a bizarre doll fetish who hunts women on public transportation, then leaves their bodies posed on benches; and the stabbing of two young homeless veterans who survived Afghanistan only to be brutally murdered in an alley.
