Like so many lawyers, Jeffery Deaver decided to give up one lucrative profession for another. He began writing murder mysteries in the late 1980s, but he he became known for the highly polished detective series with Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs. Lincoln is a quadriplegic with a sense for solving riddles; while Amelia is the woman that does the running round – often getting into danger. Together they make a great team.
Deaver became a bestseller with the Rhyme series,but along the way he has written other very successful stand-alone thrillers, a Bond novel and a new series with heroine Kathryn Dance. His work is among the best of contemporary crime fiction: well written, multiple plots, surprises that you don’t usually see coming and engaging characters.
This Lincoln Rhyme story is a fast-paced story with action and suspense. L.A. Police procedural writer and one of the most successful crime writers in America, Michael Connelly did a graceful appreciation for this edition. The book was issued in 2000 with a run of 85 numbered and signed copies.
