New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver returns with this blockbuster thriller featuring forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme.

Amelia Sachs is hot on the trail of a killer. She’s chasing him through a department store in Brooklyn when an escalator malfunctions. The stairs give way, with one man horribly mangled by the gears. Sachs is forced to let her quarry escape as she jumps in to try to help save the victim.

She and famed forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme soon learn, however, that the incident may not have been an accident at all but the first in a series of intentional attacks. They find themselves up against one of their most formidable opponents ever: a brilliant killer who turns common products into murder weapons. As the body count threatens to grow, Sachs and Rhyme must race against the clock to unmask his identity—and discover his mission—before more people die.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Darkly witty…unsettling.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “[This is] Deaver at his best, and when you are Jeffery Deaver this means the best of the best.”

    Huffington Post

  • “Deaver is a genius when it comes to manipulation and deception. Stellar plot twists are in full abundance in The Steel Kiss, and the story line veers in several unpredictable directions.”

    Associated Press

  • "[The Steel Kiss is] like a master class in how to perfectly balance plot and character…A terrific novel.”

    Connecticut News

  • “With an unmatched ability to create the perfect characters…Deaver takes fans to the edge in this one and dangles them over the cliff…One of the best books of 2016.”

    Suspense magazine

  • “Deaver delivers another heart-stopping thriller in his Lincoln Rhyme series…The action, suspense, and horrific crimes continue unabated.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “If you’re looking for a pedal-to-the-floor thriller with reversals and twists, this is the novel for you.”

    Big Thrill

  • “Clever…entertaining…Convincing characters and an unexpected closing twist will remind readers why Deaver is one of today’s top thriller writers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Fans will marvel at the creative manner in which Deaver incorporates current technological and societal trends into the plots of his thrillers.”

    Library Journal

  • “Fiendishly inventive…all the usual thrills, which are worth every breathless minute.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “The plot twists are clever and unexpected, the dialogue is colloquial and natural, and the characters—especially Rhyme, Sachs, and the killer, who contributes to the story via first-person narrative passages—are vividly realized. Highly recommendable to fans of the series and to any non-Deaver readers who appreciate a nice mix of plot and character. While there are some plot threads carried over from previous books, the novel can be read as a stand-alone.”


  • “Narrator Edoardo Ballerini is perfectly in tune with the Rhyme character, emphasizing the detective’s great intellect and questionable people skills with his pointed delivery, while not suppressing the wit in the writing. His voicing of the other characters is full of subtleties that contribute to a thrilling listen, particularly his depiction of the killer…Ballerini ensures that the end result is a thoroughly gripping listen.”
