Mr Deaver seems back on track with this Lincoln Rhyme tale. The last few had been really... stretched. And while I wasn't a fan of arch nemesis "The Watchmaker" this puzzle is a whole different kettle of fish. ( )

Always enjoy reading the Lincoln Rhyme books but this one was a bit of a disappointment. The story was good but the plot was too convoluted. You were all over the place with characters and relationships to each other. ( )

Hits all the points you expect, although having an invalids home constantly invaded by enemies is getting a bit predictable. ( )

There is nothing better than a Jeffery Deaver book about Lincoln Rymes and Amelia Sachs when you driving up and down Rt. 81 to and from North Carolina. This audiobook just made the miles fly by. There is someone who is tattooing victims with poisons. There is a connection with the original book, The Bone Collector which adds another element to the story. Add in some home-grown terrorists and it's off to the races! I can definitely recommend the audiobook. ( )
