This book is based on a character introduced in the last Lincoln Rhyme book. I really liked Catherine Dance and hope he writes more books about her. She is not only smart, good at her job, but also likable. Everytime I thought I had this book figured out it changed courses on me. It will keep you interested throughout and in some places you just won't be able to put it down.
I got hooked on Deaver since "A Maiden's Grave." He is, in my opinion, an exceptional author, especially for his prowess with "plot twists." Such a gift for a modern author is refreshing. This time he focusses not on Lincoln Rhyme, but on Kathryn Dance, who is just as gifted in uncovering truth through observation as Deaver. JB
I love Deaver. He always able to keep the reader wanting more and finds and effective end. This was a great story. Easy to read.
I enjoyed this book from cover to cover. I had a hard time putting it down.
I have read many of Jeffery Deaver's books, and always enjoy them. I was not disappointed - in fact the Sleeping Doll is one of his best!
