Mummified remains of a woman put the team’s investigative skills to the test. Jane works from her hospital room as she, with Maura’s and her family’s support, seeks to recover from a devastating loss.
TNT describes the show as follows:
“A Boston police detective and medical examiner combine their skills and talent to solve murders. Perhaps their strikingly different personalities make the relationship between Detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles so effective. Jane, the only female cop in Boston’s homicide division, is tough, relentless and rarely lets her guard down, while the impeccably dressed Maura displays a sometimes icy temperament — she is, after all, more comfortable among the dead than the living. Together, the best friends have forged a quirky and supportive relationship. They drop the protective shield in each other’s company and combine their expertise to solve Boston’s most complex cases.”
Rizzoli and Isles season 5, episode 9 airs Aug. 12 at 9 p.m. EDT on TNT.
