Publisher's Summary

Best-selling master of suspense Jeffery Deaver is back with a brand-new Lincoln Rhyme thriller. To save the life of a young girl who's being stalked by a ruthless hit man, Lincoln and his protege, Amelia Sachs, are called upon to do the impossible: solve a truly "cold case", one that's 140 years old.

The Twelfth Card is a two-day cat-and-mouse chase through the streets of uptown Manhattan as quadriplegic detective Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs try to outguess Thompson Boyd, a man whose past has turned him into a killing machine as unfeeling and cunning as a wolf. Boyd is after Geneva Settle, a high school girl from Harlem, and it's up to Lincoln and Amelia to figure out why.

The motive may have to do with a term paper that Geneva is writing about her ancestor, Charles Singleton, a former slave. Charles was active in the early civil rights movement, but was arrested for theft and disgraced. Lincoln and Amelia work frantically to figure out what actually happened on that hot July night in 1868 when Charles was arrested.

Deaver's inimitable plotting keeps this story racing at a lightening-fast clip. With breathtaking twists and multiple surprises, this is Deaver's most compelling Lincoln Rhyme audiobook to date.

Unabridged version available 7/26.

    "Loved it!"

    This was my second book by Jeffery Deaver. (Vanished Man was first.) I really enjoyed the narration and thought the characters were very well done. I enjoy the team of characters that Deaver has put together in the Lincoln Rhyme mysteries. They remind me of the old Perry Mason series. The narration is very well done and suspenseful. The audio version will keep you on the edge of your chair. Enjoy!

    "Lost his touch"

    No need to review the action or lack thereof. I hope this is an anomaly.
