- Author Jeffery Deaver
At this stage in the Rhyme and Sachs series, we’re used to the pattern of horrifying crimes being solved by Rhyme and his incredible attention to forensic detail. What’s fascinating to me is how Jeffrey Deaver tries, in each book, to set up a new and different situation to throw a spanner in the works. This time, we have Rhyme retired from the NYPD and Sachs particularly grumpy about the whole situation.
I won’t go into the other details to save spoilers, but I did enjoy this book quite a lot more than the previous handful. Even though at this point, the format of writing is quite predictable and the twists and cliffhangers don’t come off the same way they used to, I still found this an enticing read.
It has put me off escalators a little bit though.
