BANGOR, Maine — The author of the “The Silent Girl” is crediting Husson University students for research they did for the latest Rizzoli and Isles novel.

Dr. Tess Gerritsen will speak at the Bangor campus at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7 as part of the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series. The public event is free.

Gerritsen’s newest book is part of the series featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles. It inspired the TNT television series “Rizzoli & Isles” starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander.

Gerritsen acknowledges the Husson University Criminal Justice Club in the back of the book for its help researching several details in novel. The students researched animal primate hair and samurai swords, both of which played a key role in the plot.
