New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver’s The Broken Window —featuring beloved detective Lincoln Rhyme—is now available on audio for only $14.99.

When Lincoln’s cousin is arrested on murder charges, the case against Arthur Rhyme is perfect—too perfect. Forensic evidence from Arthur’s home is found all over the scene of the crime, and it looks like the fate of Lincoln’s estranged cousin is sealed. At the request of Arthur’s wife Judy, Lincoln begrudgingly agrees to investigate the case. Soon Lincoln and Amelia uncover a string of similar murders and rapes with perpetrators claiming innocence and ignorance—despite ironclad evidence at the scenes of the crime. Rhyme’s team realizes this “perfect” evidence may actually be the result of masterful identity theft and manipulation. An information service company seems to have all of the answers but is reluctant to share its information. Still, Rhyme and Sachs and their assembled team begin putting together a chilling pattern and consistent trace evidence, and their investigation points to one master criminal, whom they dub “522.” And when “522” learns the identities of the crime fighting team, the hunters become the hunted. Filled with Deaver’s trademark suspenseful plot twists, The Broken Window puts the partnership of Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs to the ultimate test.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the most unnerving of Deaver’s Lincoln Rhyme novels...[with a] mad genius who is smarter and scarier than the genre’s garden-variety nut jobs.”

    New York Times

  • “Rhyme still intrigues in his eighth outing, while Deaver’s scarily believable depiction of identity theft in a total-surveillance society stokes our paranoia.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Entertaining...the topical subject matter makes the story line particularly compelling.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Deaver has built his reputation on the strength of well-drawn characters; hyperrealistic dialogue (you don’t read it, you hear it); and right-angle plot twists that are impossible to predict. There is no one quite like Deaver—or like Lincoln Rhyme.”

    Booklist

  • “Dennis Boutsikaris’ reading of Deaver’s latest Lincoln Rhyme thriller is positively chilling...[His] reading is excellent, but he really ratchets the intensity when performing the passages told from the killer’s point of view. His delivery fully embraces the cold, calculating mind of the murderer, imbuing his seemingly dispassionate thoughts with an underlying sense of barely controlled rage and menace.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • A 2009 International Thriller Writers Award Nominee for Best Novel
  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pbwritr | 2/12/2014

    " A riveting book. The largest data-mining company in the U.S. seems to be the home of a serial killer who knows everything about his victim as well as the person he frames for the murder. A duo, Amelia Sachs and Lincoln Rhyme, along with a bevy of other sleuths, unravel the mystery while, at the same time, bringing light to the many ways in which modernity has left individuals little privacy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C. William | 2/8/2014

    " Brilliant as usual but Deaver has never disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam McCauley | 2/8/2014

    " The Lincoln Rhyme stories are always good. A lot of background research goes into this author's stories and you think they'll never get the bad guys...but they always do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy C. | 1/23/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jack | 1/17/2014

    " A convoluted story with multiple twists, few of which really work, in my opinion. A cautionary tale, though, about the collection of data on everyone and everything and the data mining that can result. Admiral Poindexter's dream! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie Krenzer | 1/16/2014

    " Very good and very suspenseful. Really makes you think what could happen if information about yourself gets in the hands of the wrong people. Credit reports being messed up, cars being towed, evidence disappearing, utilities shut off, any number of ideas come out of Deaver's latest psycho. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Malwes | 12/27/2013

    " Number 8 in the Lincoln Ryme series, this was fascinating and terrifying in this "Information Age." It puts a whole new spin on the Privacy Act. "
