Welcome to the world of Lincoln Rhyme - quadripelegic extraordinaire. One who uses others senses combined with his keen brain to unravel truly great mysteries. An excellent author and story teller. I wouldn't start this one too late, you won't want to put it down.

Creepy and suspenseful, I loved the interesting characters. Police detective work at it's best. Highly recommend this one. The movie wasn't nearly as good as the book.

Great book. Anyone who enjoyed the movie must read this book! Much better than the movie. Much more detail, and the plot is slightly different. Great read. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

Thrilling but forced. A third of this book is suspenseful and chilling. A third of this book is somewhat tedious crime scene analysis. And a third of this book covers the strange relationship of a paraplegic and a cop.

Lincoln Rhyme is a forensic genius who is crippled after an accident on the job. Now a quadriplegic who is planning his own death with the help of a doctor, Linc is brought out of retirement when a serial killer starts preying on people unsuspecting people in New York City. With each abduction, the killer leaves clues as to where the next victim will be found. With the help of Amelia Sachs, the police officer who discovered the first body, Linc must put the clues together to find the next victim before it is too late.

This was a fast paced suspense thriller with interesting characters. My only problem with it was the overload of forensic information in this book. I ended up skimming some of it. But, by the second half of the book I was hooked and wanted to find out how they would catch the killer. My rating: 4 Stars.
