- Author Jeffery Deaver
Lincoln Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs team up again to solve another mystery. Who is this magical serial killer who’s list of crimes is both diabolical and impressive at the same time? Each crime scene reflects a brilliant illusion from a master magician, but there’s no getting past the forensic skills of Mr Rhyme.
The partnership between the two main characters continues to get both deeper and more interesting as each big case (and book) arrives. They’re starting to see inside each other’s heads, and it’s fascinating to watch them develop as a team.
Deaver manages to combine stories and characters together in a surprising and intriguing way. Building tension and prolonging the suspense seem entirely natural, and it seems the characters are always racing against crime. This book is similar to the other Rhyme, but there are more twists and turns along the way, building on previous ideas to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
