The New York Times bestselling author of The Stone Monkey is back with a brilliant thriller that pits forensic criminologist Lincoln Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs against an unstoppable killer with one final, horrific trick up his sleve.

The Los Angeles Times calls his novels "thrill rides between covers," the New York Times hails them "dazzling," and the Times of London crowns him "the best psychological thriller writer around." Jeffery Deaver, America's "master of ticking-bomb suspense" (People), delivers his most electrifying audiobook yet.

It begins at the prestigious music school in New York City. A killer flees the scene of a homicide and locks himself in a classroom. Within minutes, the police have him surrounded. When the scream rings out, followed by a gunshot, they break down the door. The room is empty.

Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are brought in to help with the high-profile investigation. For the ambitious Sachs, solving the case could earn her a promotion. For the quadriplegic Rhyme, it means relying on his protéegéee to ferret out the master illusionist they've dubbed "the conjurer" who baits them with gruesome murders that become more diabolical with each fresh crime. As the fatalities rise and the minutes tick down, Rhyme and Sachs must move beyond the smoke and mirrors to preven a terrifying act of vengeance that could become the greatest vanishing act of all.

  • “Ingeniously devious…[The] plot is so crooked it could hide behind a spiral staircase.”


  • “A crackling thriller.”

    Chicago Sun-Times 

  • “Presto! With a conjuror’s flourish, the reliable Jeffery Deaver has pulled another winner out of his hat…The book’s plotting and pacing—featuring twist upon twist and reversal upon reversal—are nothing short of dazzling, reminiscent of Agatha Christie at her best. Deaver proves himself an accomplished illusionist.”

    " The spine is broken part way through the book. I don't have a clue how to try to tape it! This is Licoln Rhyme number 5. I don't think I have number 6 here, rats. I love these and I am sometimes sad to think that I have missed them all these years. Copyright on this one is 2003. Learned alot about magic in this one. It has 806 pages in this copy. "

    " This is the fifth book I have read by Deaver and the one I have enjoyed the most since The Coffin Dancer. I did not particularly like The Empty Chair and was interested in The Stone Monkey more for its content about Chinese culture than for the plot. So The Vanished Man was a nice surprise. The theme is illusion, and Deaver joins right in with his characters in tricking and misleading the reader in a way that is a lot of fun. This is not the sort of book where you will be able to "figure out" the mystery ahead of time. It is more like a fun roller coaster ride, not to be taken too seriously, but definitely to be enjoyed. "
