Reviews

Review by Library Journal (1997-03-15)

The endearing protagonist in this riveting thriller is Lincoln Rhyme, a former forensics expert and cop who longs for death after an accident leaves him without the use of his limbs. Raymond Burr's Ironside he's not, as bitterness and indifference drive him toward suicide. But Rhyme soon finds a reason to live when his former colleagues enlist his help in catching a brutal serial killer. Partnered with Amelia Sachs, a (what else?) gorgeous female cop, Rhyme follows the trail of evidence left by the killer, who seems obsessed with historic New York.

Although much of the forensic and police procedural details have been excised in this abridgment, the story remains fulfilling, thanks in part to David McCallum's excellent reading. Recommended for popular suspense collections. Deaver is also the author of A Maiden's Grave (Penguin Audiobks., 1995). Mark Annichiarico, "Library Journal"
