He remains bitter and reclusive after the accident until a criminal report of a corpse found buried on a deserted West Side railroad track catches his attention. His search leads him to the Bone Collector, whose obsession with old New York is apparent in every clue he leaves for Rhyme and partner Amelia Sachs.

    " Read for my book club. I don't like reading crime fiction. I would not have picked this book on my own. Book was very entertaining and had me wondering what would happen next. "

    " I read few pages from time to time, usually while waiting for the TV news to begin or something liek this, and I'm slowly coming to the end... sooner or later!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carey Shea | 1/31/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. NYPD searching for a serial killer with the help of a quadroplegic es-detective. The ending is a surprise. Well worth reading. "

    " The first book I read by the author. It made me an instant fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 12/21/2013

    " A VERY GOOD THRILLER. MOVIE WAS GOOD TOO. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Goetz-bixby | 12/15/2013

    " My entree into the world of Lincoln Rhyme. What a fantastic start. The details were amazing and I love his mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jocelyn | 9/8/2013

    " A real page turner. I enjoyed it immensely. I liked that I recognized a lot of the forensics from my class and characters were memorable and grew. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rey | 8/24/2013

    " the physiology of different personalities proves the uniqueness of men "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margy Sala | 4/20/2013

    " I have read this book twice already but I just decided to read all the Lincolm Rhyme's books in order. So here I go again :P You can never go wrong with Deaver. His books are the masterpieces. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 4/11/2013

    " This was bloody marvelous, and yet not quite perfect, if you see what I mean. I think perhaps I was just a little uncomfortable with a quadriplegic hero. Then again, I am a bit of a hypochondriac. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 2/28/2013

    " I've liked all of Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme novels "

    " Good read. A little gory, but with interesting characters. I will be reading more from the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kara | 4/15/2012

    " A pretty good mystery, but if I had to give it a letter grade,it would be "I," for implausible. Especially the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Mcvean | 4/13/2012

    " No point in reviewing all his books ...read most of the rhymes series and a few of the standalone books...they don't disappoint "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lou Knights | 9/26/2011

    " Loved the film, loved the book even more! If you like thrillers, this is the book for you! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pulpbomb | 7/10/2011

    " Thankfully it'd been a long time since I saw the movie with Denzel & Angelina so I didn't remember who was the killer. Very suspenseful page-turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darin | 5/22/2011

    " Thought it was quite good, but a little grisly. I was able to eat and read the book at the same time, but some might find parts of it to be a difficult read, depending on squeamishness. I will keep him on my list, though, and read other Lincoln Rhyme books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/19/2011

    " This was an excellent read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marti | 5/6/2011

    " quadriplegic genius detective wallows in self-pity in a quite annoying and monotonous way while acting like a jack ass to the hot female cop. The movie was better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 5/4/2011

    " Even though I have seen the movie, I didn't not remember the ending. I had a really hard time putting this one down! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Polly | 5/3/2011

    " I loved this book, mainly because of the truly original character, Lincoln Rhyme. I think Deaver lost him later in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ruth | 5/2/2011

    " I enjoyed the characters. I did read the whole book. In retrospect, I would never see the movie after reading the book. The book was rather violent and graphic about murder and torture. So, that is why I thought 2 stars was a valid rating. It is just not the kind of book I enjoy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamie | 4/27/2011

    " Wow! Great book! Very fast pace, always exciting, great twists in the plot! Really enjoyed this one and will be picking up more from this author! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gaurav | 4/24/2011

    " Fun enough, but two dimensional characters ruin the fun somewhat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marielle | 3/25/2011
