    From Jeffery Deaver comes an original short story featuring Lincoln Rhyme. When a young woman is found brutally murdered in a parking garage, with a veritable mountain of potential evidence to sift through, it may be the most challenging case former NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme has ever taken on.

    Maybe I know Jeffery Deaver's writing style too well, as I have read most of his books and kind of know what to expect. There is always a little "twist" or "slight of hand" to try and take you in one direction, when the actual perpetrator is someone you would not expect. However, it wasn't hard to figure out. The killer does use a unique method of covering his tracks- which I had not seen done before, and was really pretty brilliant.

    However, this short story could have been more enjoyable if it were a little longer, allowing the drama to play out, and letting the characters become more fully developed. On the plus side, the narration was very good.

    One problem right after the 1 hour mark, the audio portion has a glitch and some of the content is cut off --parts of sentences are lost. This goes on for about 10 minutes, however, whatever was said during that time probably didn't make much difference to the content or outcome.

    ***There is a nice preview of his new book coming out in June, which sounds pretty intriguing.
