- Author Jeffery Deaver
A notorious hitman has acquired another target, and it’s up to Lincoln Rhyme, a wheelchair bound retired criminalist and his eyes and legs, Amelia Sachs, to figure out who this guy is, who hired him and most importantly, where he’s going to strike next.
Lincoln is a cantankerous old fellow, bless him, you really feel for him and get inside his head though. Amelia Sachs bugs me a little bit because it’s so obvious that her and Rhyme should be together - he’s never going to make the first move, so it’s up to her. Would they just get on with it?
I love these books because there’s always a good structure and the plot doesn’t falter at all. My dad said this one was better than the Bone Collector, but I’m not really sure I prefer it. They’re just as good as each other, and both brilliant.
