NYPD criminalist Lincoln Rhyme joins his beautiful protégé, Amelia Sachs, in the hunt for the Coffin Dancer -- an ingenious killer who changes appearance even faster than he adds to his trail of victims. They have only one clue: the madman has a tattoo of the Grim Reaper waltzing with a woman. Rhyme must rely on his wits and intuition to track the elusive murderer through New York City -- knowing they have only forty-eight hours before the Coffin Dancer strikes again.

    " My first experience with Lincoln Rhyme. Started off boring, became engaged when killer was narrating. Ridiculous twists pretty much ruined any good will I had toward book. Will try another to see if series gets better. "

    " As usual a great book by Deaver. I have read quite a few of his and enjoyed all of them. I'm going back and reading them in order and picking up the ones that I've missed. After I get done I'll have to decide which one is my favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari | 1/7/2014

    " There were a few things that Deaver spent too much time on. A flight taking off, the background of Percey & Ed, but in the end it doesn't matter. The twist was great, out of left field. "
