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 sleeve.

It begins at a 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 protégée 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 prevent a terrifying act of vengeance that could become the greatest vanishing act of all.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy Drout | 2/2/2014

    " Awesome book, one of the best books I have ever read. You are kept guessing throughout the entire book up until the very last page. It is like that with all of Jeffery Deaver's books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie Stoll | 1/16/2014

    " Another great read. Sometimes I felt it was a bit too much on the twists and turns but it still read good. Deaver is a solid thriller writer. He follows a pattern in his books but does it well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Conrad | 11/24/2013

    " Good description of how illusion works, and an interesting case. Usual Deaver plot, or should I say plots, because he intertwines multiple plots as is his habit. Not only held my interest, but kept me thinking after I was done with it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dev Singer | 11/21/2013

    " After this many books, Deaver's twists are way too predictable. I give up on this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ferris | 9/7/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyia | 2/3/2013

    " It was freaky! I got confused more than twice throughout the story, tricks after tricks. I enjoyed reading such a story and it does make me think twice about talking to strangers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne Bailer Smith | 1/29/2013

    " Ihave read every Jeffrey Deaver book written and he has never failed to zap me on the last page. Does it every time. The Blue Nowhere shattered my "amazement quotient" and from there I was hooked. Amazing writer. His last book is just as good as his first one, The Bone Collector. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brady | 11/7/2012

    " I felt like Mr. Deaver put too many twists in this thing. He tries too hard to make you think you know what's going on only to turn around and trick you... which sometime is nice, but this book does it too much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacey | 10/24/2012

    " This was my first and favorite Lincoln Rhyme novel. "
