Publisher's Summary

It was a "million-dollar bullet," a sniper shot delivered from over a mile away. Its victim was no ordinary mark: he 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. While his partner, Amelia Sachs, traces the victim's steps in Manhattan, Rhyme leaves the city to pursue the sniper himself. As details of the case start to emerge, the pair discovers that not all is what it seems.

When a deadly, knife-wielding assassin begins systematically eliminating all evidence-including the witnesses-Lincoln's investigation turns into a chilling battle of wits against a cold-blooded killer.

    "Horrible Horrible Narration...did I mention HORRIB"
    What disappointed you about The Kill Room?

    Audible version extremely disjointed!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeffery Deaver again?

    I will if it goes back to the previous narrators.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    Just about any SINGLE narrator.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I don't know if the book will have redeeming qualities....I couldn't get past the audible part...only got a couple chapters in. No one else I know that likes to listen to books could listen either. The book might be great!


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first time I feel I wasted $$ getting an audio book... I listen to them a lot and have never been this disappointed. Apparently no one with any say in the matter listened to this book before they released it or it never would have made it to the market.

    I am a retired school counselor (middle and elementary) and an avid reader. I am a lover of great mysteries, quirky protagonists, and medical/scientific non-fiction. I travel a lot and love the freedon audiobooks give me to drive, work, and relax while enjoying a good book. On my ipod I have eclectic musical selections as well as audiobooks. I will strive to never steer you wrong in a review.

    Story
    "Not One of His Best"
    What disappointed you about The Kill Room?

    The plot was reminiscent of another one of his books that discussed data mining.Although he has given Lincoln a new situation regarding his health it does not improve the flow of the story. This book had much less about Lincoln's relationship with his paramour, Amelia. In the past books the personal relationships in his life were so important and gave the books their color and dimension.


    Has The Kill Room turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I would read another book in this series and hope for the best


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    The narrator was satisfactory but not great.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The book is part of a series that I love.

    "Woman narrator emphasizes how little Amelia counts"
    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    One good narrator can make you believe you are listening to a vast cast of characters with subtle nuances of tone and voice. Listening to the female narrator jump in occasionally with Amelia's lines makes you realize Amelia's window dressing for the story. "Send?" "Now?" "What do you mean by that?" ARGH!

    Deaver is too good a writer for this crappy recording.

    Story
    "multiple narrators = one big mistake"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    no one


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    the book seems like a rush job. it lacks the patience and mystery that deaver has brought to past lincoln rhyme books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    any of those who have previously read lincoln rhyme books


    Any additional comments?

    i don't know whose idea it was to cast several narrators, but it was a big mistake - very distracting in a way that takes one away from the story. i've enjoyed all the lincoln rhyme books, but i'm very disappointed by this one.

    "So disapointing."

    I am sad. I always llook forward to Rhyme books. And the voice that did Emilia was terrible. She is too strong a woman for that whimpy voice.

    "Attention Grabber"

    Great listen definitely held my attention, Lincoln Rhyme novels rarely disappoint. Narration was great another solid piece of work by Jeffrey Deever.

    Story
    "At the end it stared ti feel like Scuby Doo"

    It suffered from among other things too many endings. And the big reveals if not for the pesky Lincoln Rhyme and his team. The other difficulty was the narration. There were three narrators who at times were solo and at other times were more than one working together. I prefer if there is only one reader in a section if there must be multiple readers. Having two or more readers sometimes reading together brought me out of the story.
