Bestselling master of suspense Jeffery Deaver is back with a brand-new Lincoln Rhyme thriller.
Lincoln Rhyme and partner/paramour Amelia Sachs return to face a criminal whose ingenious staging of crimes is enabled by a terrifying access to information....
When Lincoln's estranged cousin Arthur Rhyme is arrested on murder charges, the case is perfect -- too perfect. Forensic evidence from Arthur's home is found all over the scene of the crime, and it looks like the fate of Lincoln's relative is sealed.
At the behest of Arthur's wife, Judy, Lincoln grudgingly agrees to investigate the case. Soon Lincoln and Amelia uncover a string of similar murders and rapes with perpetrators claiming innocence and ignorance -- despite ironclad evidence at the scenes of the crime. Rhyme's team realizes this "perfect" evidence may actually be the result of masterful identity theft and manipulation.
An information service company -- the huge data miner Strategic Systems Datacorp -- seems to have all the answers but is reluctant to help the police. Still, Rhyme and Sachs and their assembled team begin uncovering a chilling pattern of vicious crimes and coverups, and their investigation points to one master criminal, whom they dub "522."
When "522" learns the identities of the crime-fighting team, the hunters become the hunted. Full of Deaver's trademark plot twists, "The Broken Window" will put the partnership of Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs to the ultimate test.

About the author

Biography of Deaver, Jeffery

Jeffery Deaver, the author of eighteen other novels of suspense, has been nominated for three Edgar Awards from the Mystery Writers of America & is a two-time recipient of the Ellery Queen Readers Award for Best Short Story of the Year. A lawyer who quit practicing to write full time, he lives in California & Virginia.


Review by Library Journal (2008-05-15)

Deaver's (The Sleeping Doll) latest novel, which pairs disabled criminologist Lincoln Rhyme and Detective Amelia Sachs for the eighth time, is sure to be one of his most popular books to date. When Lincoln suspects his cousin is being framed for murder, other similar cases of stolen identities and innocent people being set up lead him to a data mining company. However, Lincoln is able to track the real killer by exposing crime-scene evidence unintentionally left behind.

As the killer feels the police closing in on him, he targets his pursuers by messing with their records, changing information to complicate their lives. Pertinent to today's society of credit cards and computer data, Deaver's thriller reminds us how vulnerable we really are and will be an essential purchase for all public libraries.
