Publisher's Summary

Geneva Settle is a bright young high school student from Harlem writing a paper about one of her ancestors, a former slave called Charles Singleton. Geneva is also the target of a ruthless professional killer.

Criminalist Lincoln Rhyme and his policewoman partner Amelia Sachs are called into the case, working frantically to anticipate where the hired gun will strike next and how to stop him, all the while trying to get to the truth of Charles Singleton, and the reason that Geneva has been targeted.

For Charles Singleton had a secret that may strike at the very heart of the United States constitution, and have disastrous consequences for human rights today. And Sachs is going to have to search a crime scene that's 140 years old before she can stop the killer.

    "horrible, horibble, horrible"

    i really love deaver and bought this straight away, then noticed it was abridged. what a hatchet job! why ruin a good story by ripping the guts out of it? the abridgment was so bad, i couldn't make head nor tail of it and gave up with about an hour to go. will wait for the full version. dont waste your credits on this mess. if i could, i would have given it no stars.

    "A little disappointing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Twelfth Card to be better than the print version?

    Certainly not in this abridged format. I read a copy years ago and was excited to listen to this version, but I was left a bit let down. Lots of the story is missing and it had the feel of a badly edited film.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the personal side of the story very much. The characters of Rhyme and Sachs are always interesting, and their deepening relationship is more gripping than the main story on occasion.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Kerry Shale?

    Not through choice. If his was the only version of a story that I really wanted to listen to, then I would, but I would always choose another narrator if possible. His female voices are particularly bad here, like someone doing an impression.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did, purely because it was so short. Chasing the killer makes for an exciting story, but it is not quite up to Jeffery Deaver's usual standard.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the next Lincoln Rhyme thriller (which features another series character, Kathryn Dance , making her debut) makes up for this slight disappointment.

    "12th Card"

    As a fan of Deaver I thoroughly enjoyed this book which is written with his usual flair. The characters came to life under the narration. Well worth downloading.
