    It was a "million-dollar bullet," a sniper shot delivered from over a mile away. Its victim was a United States citizen, targeted by the United States government, and assassinated in the Bahamas. The nation's most renowned investigator and forensics expert, Lincoln Rhyme, is drafted to investigate. As details of the case start to emerge, the he discovers that not all is what it seems. When a deadly, knife-wielding assassin begins systematically eliminating the witnesses, Lincoln's investigation turns into a chilling battle of wits against a cold-blooded killer.

    Where does The Kill Room rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed this one almost as much as my other Jeffery Deaver reads.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No, but I've grown accustomed to Deaver's style of writing, so I don't stress as much.


    Any additional comments?

    I agree with previous reviewers that the multiple narrators are a bit jarring, but I believe that claiming it ruins the entire book is a bit extreme. Amelia's voice is much more clear than the others, and, as a result, comes through a bit more piercing in the beginning, but honestly, after the first few minutes, my brain adjusted just fine. No, my issues with this book had nothing to do with the narration, more I found that keeping the names of the multiple main characters/suspects straight was a bit more difficult in this book than in others. They are all government agents of some sort and are referred to by last name most of the time. I am on my second listen, because I am quite sure I missed some details the first time around. Still, I enjoyed it just fine during my commute to and from work and DO recommend it.
