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.

This book seems to have been forced into print. Not the usual Deaver style and attention to detail.
I have read/listened to all of the Rhyme books and other Deaver books as well and have enjoyed all of them. This was an aberration. If he publishes again, I'll read it, I'm sure.
No. Too boring.
THE KILL ROOM is a thrilling listen! Jeffery Deaver is in top form in this latest Lincoln Rhyme novel. Its fast-paced plot and intricate characters make this a must listen.
With all of the twists and turns, the three readers were used effectively to make the story more compelling and capture the complexity of the plot. It's definitely one of the best audiobooks I've listened to within the past year.
If you read/listen to Ken Follett, David Baldacci, Brad Meltzer, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, or John Standford this audiobook is for you!
It's nice to have Lincoln Rhyme back in action!
the book seems like a rush job. it lacks the patience and mystery that deaver has brought to past lincoln rhyme books.
any of those who have previously read lincoln rhyme books
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.
The narrators were fine, there were just too many of them. I found it annoying and distracting to have a female voice "break in" on my listening every time Amelia Sachs had lines, especially since all the other characters were voiced by the primary narrator. Neither did a bad job or had a displeasing voice, it was just weird to have them both. (I don't mind audiobooks that alternate character narrators by chapter - but just a line here and there breaks the pace or something.)
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
Yes. It is a great one. Jeffery Deaver and Lincoln are a great pair.
Lincoln's a great detective.
Very great narration. Giving a man and a girl narrators are great. This makes the story a great listen.
Please Write Faster Mr. Deaver.
