FYI: Universal Pictures is producing Deaver's The Bone Collector as a film starring Denzel Washington. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
It's New Years Eve 1999, early morning in Washington, DC. Dozens are dead in a subway station, and no one saw the killer. A ransom note demanding $20 million has been sent to the mayor; if the money is not delivered, more people will die. A freak accident leaves the writer of the note dead and a robotic killer on the loose. FBI agent Margaret Lukas and Peter Kincaid, a handwriting expert, are teamed to find the killer. Suspense builds, and a romance between Lukas and Kincaid develops. Deaver, best-selling author of 14 novels, including The Coffin Dancer and The Bone Collector, does not disappoint. The Devil's Teardrops has a tight plot, interesting characters, and an unexpected conclusion. William Dufris produces a different and believable voice for each character and is a pleasure to listen to. Recommended for all public libraries. Patsy E.

YA-A gripping thriller that grabs readers' interest on page one and doesn't let go until the last exciting word. Parker Kincaid is a retired FBI forensic document examiner who is compelled to put himself and his family at risk in order to help save the lives of hundreds of Washington, DC, residents. It is the last day of 1999 and a grisly machine-gun attack in the Dupont Circle subway station has left dozens dead and wounded. Authorities have been notified that the killing spree will continue every four hours unless the mayor pays $20 million in ransom. When the lead terrorist is killed in a hit-and-run accident on his way to the money drop, the ransom note becomes the FBI's sole piece of evidence. Intricate forensic details are explained in easy terms so that uninitiated readers will understand every clue. With its fast-moving story line, this novel will take teens on a roller-coaster ride of adventure with twists and turns that lead up to the surprising conclusion.-Anita Short, W. T.
