THE king of suspense is back and he’s done it again.
Hodder & Stoughton, €24.10;
For his 12th Lincoln Rhyme thriller, Jeffrey Deaver has reunited the grumpy but genius quadriplegic forensic detective — who has since given up working with the NYPD — with his crime-solving team: red-headed partner and detective Amelia Sachs, gifted evidence technician and analyst Mel Cooper and former rookie officer Ron Pulaski as they try to untangle their latest case of a man killed on an escalator, while Sachs pursued a serial killer in a shopping centre.
With 33 novels under his belt including The Bone Collector and James Bond adventure Carte Blanche, Deaver knows the tricks of the thriller writing trade.
Fans will recognise and appreciate the fast-paced action of his newest work, as he keeps them on tenterhooks, jumping from one character viewpoint and plot to another, often within the same chapter.
Another riveting read from the award-winning crime author.
