Reviews

Lincoln Rhyme is back, helped along by Amelia Sachs, who has her own case to solve even as she and Rhyme track a serial killer obsessed with clocks. With a 12-city tour. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

"* 'This is a novel that will chill your blood on the warmest day of any summer holiday. Keep looking over your shoulder...' - Independent on Sunday * 'THE COLD MOON has a superscription from William Faulkner, but this is not a book in the 'literary' thriller genre. Deaver is not so much interested in tickling our aesthetic sensibilities as in raising our pulse rates, and he's doing that from the first chapter' - Barry Forshaw, Daily Express * 'Bestseller Deaver is on top form here, producing a real spine-tingler with a fabulous twist at the end' - She * 'Jeffery Deaver is a master at crafting intricate crimes that are solved through guile, tenacity and sheer creative genius. And Lincoln Rhyme is one of a kind.' - Harlan Coben"

Mantegna applies his considerable talent to this latest Lincoln Rhymes mystery. Deaver's quadriplegic detective, Rhymes and his partner, Det. Amelia Sachs, attempt to stop a sadistic serial killer known as the Watchmaker, so named because he leaves specially constructed clocks at the site of each of his murders. However, as so often happens in Deaver's stories, not everything is even close to what it seems. Mantegna gives a smooth, no frills performance. He keeps the vocal deviations for each character to a minimum, concentrating instead on making their dialogue natural and realistic. His low-key delivery works especially well when describing the point of view of the Watchmaker or when delving into the inner thoughts of the killer's sexually deviant accomplice. The scenes between the two villains as they calmly discuss the fates of their intended victims, both before and after death, are genuinely chilling in their execution. Deaver fans will be pleased to have Rhymes and Sachs back in a new intricate and compelling thriller, with Mantegna once again serving as an excellent narrator. Simultaneous release with the S&S hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 3). (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
