- Author Jeffery Deaver
There’s something slightly different about this Lincoln Rhyme book. At first, you think you’re reading just the standard thriller where the paralysed criminalist analyses every scrap of evidence to effectively hunt down perpetrators of serious crime. But there’s more to it than that, and the twists upon twists are a wonder to behold.
Aside from the crime itself, which is another scare-mongering tale that makes you want to live off the grid for the rest of your life, I thought other aspects of the story were really interesting. That undercover work is gradually being phased out but not always to the benefit of a case. That a police officer can go through so many crises of confidence and come out the other side. That Sachs can drive a different car!
Good book, solid entry in the series, not the best but thought-provoking nonetheless.
