I always enjoy Deaver's crime novels and this one was no exception. This is one of the Lincoln Rhyme novels that I have had on my bookshelf for several years but hadn't gotten around to reading. I thought this one was great and included some inventive plot twists - it really had me guessing. Deaver has a knack for leading you down one path only to change it unexpectedly. He managed this several times in this novel! I would recommend this one.
My first Jeffery Deaver book (Lincoln Rhyme main character). I enjoyed the book and will probably read more by him.
Unlocking a cold case with explosive implications for the future of civil rights, forensics expert Lincoln Rhyme and his protegee, Amelia Sachs, must outguess a killer who has targeted a high school girl from Harlem who is diggin into the past of one of her ancestors, a former slave. What buried secrets from 140 years ago could have an assassin out for innocent blood? And what chilling message ishidden in his calling card, the hanged man of the tarot deck? Rhyme must anticipate the next strike or become history-in the bestseller that proves "there is no thriller writer today like Jeffery Deaver".
Reading Deaver's books, one realizes what a talent he has for creating such intelligent plots and making his stories quite believable. This story never loses steam as it runs headlong down the tracks.
Another spectacular story from Jeffrey Deaver, this book has many subplots and will keep you interested and guessing until the end of the story. I love reading a good book while also learning something of historical significance.
This is another of the Lincoln Rhyme series where he and his protege, Amelia Sachs helps a Harlem girl dig into the past if one of her ancestors. A well fashioned thriller.
