Not quite as good as the others in the series, but not bad. ( )

In a race against time, Lincoln and Amelia are recruited to track down a cargo ship carrying two dozen illigal Chinese immigrants, as well as the notorious human smuggler and killer Youling the Ghost. Can they stop the Ghost before he murders again?

A fast paced read......a bit predictable. ( )
  hemlokgang | Jan 5, 2013 |
Another great mystery in the so far excellent series. Serial killer, human smuggler, the Ghost - brings a cargo of a few dozen Chinese illegal immigrants to the shore of New York City. But just before reaching land, he's tracked by the Coast Guard, so he blows up the ship just before making his escape. About a dozen immigrants escape as well, so the Ghost must catch and kill them all before they blow his scheme and identity. As usual, with a lot of shrewd deduction on the barest shreds of evidence, with the help of a very likeable and resourceful Chinese detective Sonny Li, who was undercover as one of the immigrants, Lincoln and Amelia nab their man.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0743437802, Mass Market Paperback)

When a vicious smuggler known as the Ghost scuttles a ship filled with undocumented Chinese immigrants less than a mile from New York harbor, only a handful of survivors--and the Ghost himself--manage to escape the burning vessel. Lincoln Rhyme, the quadriplegic NYPD forensic detective first introduced in 1997's The Bone Collector, and Amelia Sachs, his partner and lover, must stop the Ghost before he murders the two families who made it to shore. The families have gone to ground in the all but impenetrable world of Manhattan's Chinatown, a fact that makes the pair's two allies--Sonny Li, a Chinese cop, and Dr. John Sung-- invaluable partners.

The group's race against time showcases Jeffery Deaver's many talents, particularly intricate plotting, plenty of surprising twists, and breakneck pacing. This is a real standout from a writer whose previous thrillers have earned him a solid following among mystery fans. --Jane Adams
