Wonderfully twisting thriller

Fantastically written. Always keeps you guessing and never an obvious twist until you see it laid out and then you understand the intricately woven threads. Narration brings this to life even further and would thoroughly recommend. One of the best in the series

I loved this book!

But then again, I have loved all the books in the Lincoln Rhyme series.

This story has so many twists and turns, I found myself having to go back over bits to make sure I listened carefully. Really likeable characters that I am hoping to meet again in future books.

Unfortunately the next book, "The Cold Moon", is only available in an abridged version, so Audible have really let me down (and others determined to listen to the whole series).

BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT

This book deserves an award, there are sub plots and twists that keep you guessing till the end and I defy anyone to work out the plot. Even tho' there are several sub-plots, they all knot together and yet it is easy to follow each one and the narrator makes it interesting bringing each person to life. Cannot praise enough - I stumbled on this writer by chance and am working through all his novels and have not been disappointed by any. Keep them coming please....

Great story, but!

Jeffery Deaver at his best. Great story line with many twists and seemingly unrelated sub plots. Unfortunately l found the narration annoyingly flat with many misplaced inflections spoiling the flow of the story.

Typical Linc Rhyme

As with all Linc Rhyme books this is very involved but holds your attention. Every twist and turn has a reason to it. It kept us entertained for long hours on car journeys.

Riveting

Loved the story, the characters and the narrator. Each character is so believable in their attitudes and mannerisms. The story itself should be made into a film, it kept me wanting more, was surprised by some of the twists in the story. I will no doubt listen to this book again and again.

Not my favourite rhyme book

I have read others in this series and loved them. This was not one of my favourites. I listened all the way through but wasn't as gripped by thus one as others.

long and winding

the story was a typically great Dever masterpiece, and as usual it dragged after the finale,which is a shame, because the splendid finish is watered down.
