    "Cracking listen brilliantly read"

    This is the first Jefferey Deaver that I have either read or listened to, and it definitely won't be my last. If you like Greg Hurwitz and Michael Connelly, you'll love this. It is very fast paced and it ties all the ends up nicely. I do like the author to tell me the end and not leaving me guessing... after all it's the author's story and I am paying him, so I want a proper end.. even if I don't like it.
    Jeff Harding narrates this brilliantly, (one of my favourite narrators and I often pick a story simply because he's the narrator.) I love all the voices, he does, especially the black policewoman who cracks me up... he's brilliant at getting the sassy edge.
    This story really keeps you guessing ... and even when you think you know who did what and why.. there was a brilliant twist I didn't see.
    I don't want to spoil the plot but I can honestly say it's one of the best listens for a while, it got me through a lot of teadious jobs...
    Highly recommended, I didn't want it to finish...

    "Not my favourite!"

    Whilst I listened to the end and enjoyed the story, especially the idea that the paralysed detective 'put off his suicide' as he became interested in the case. It didn't grip me so I gave it an average rating.

    Story
    "Quadriplegic Ex-Cop in a fight. Fantastic"

    What a great book with a preposterous yet joyous storyline. This was my first encounter with Lincoln Rhyme and his cantankerous view on life.
    I absolutely love this story and the characters were brilliant, Amelia was the perfect stooge to Lincoln and the supporting characters made for a high enjoyable yarn. It is a book where you just suspend any grip on reality you might have and just enjoy. Based on this book I will look forward to the rest of the series. Natation was perfect and built the characters extremely well
    Very glad I read this as my first as it seems to set out its stall for future books

    A book you just can't stop listening to, despite having seen the film, the book far surpasses the on-screen renditions.
