 In the early hours of a quiet weekend morning in Manhattan's Diamond District, a brutal triple murder shocks the city. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs quickly take the case. Curiously, the killer has left behind a half-million dollars' worth of gems at the murder scene, a jewelry store on 47th street. As more crimes follow, it becomes clear that the killer's target is not gems but engaged couples themselves.

The plot twists and turns, complications, many and storied characters, the pure learning experience of new and intriguing topics perfectly interwoven... Jeff Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme is masterful. With tingly anticipation, I await the next L.R. novel!

With vividly realized characters and a breathtaking pace, Last Man Standing is another spellbinding title from David Baldacci, best-selling author of Wish You Well. When the FBI Hostage Rescue Team is ambushed, it is up to sole survivor Web London to find the killer.

What an excellent piece of work! While I counted a few more than six degrees of separation, each spirals into a smooth, satisfying, suspense filled, thrill ride that I found hard to put down.

I was impressed by the various scenes going on, the amount of research that went into the various facets. For example, there's extensive knowledge shared with regard to horses and horse farms; some Civil War era history; various types of guns and their use within factions of the FBI; psychiatric techniques; and more.

Web London, who?s part of HRT (Hostage Recovery Team), survives an incredible tragedy that sends him seeing a shrink, or rather, mental health professional, Claire Daniels.

A couple of HRT missions are compromised and now everyone?s trying to find the mole.

A psycho killer escapes from prison, then a judge, and two attorneys who sat on his case wind up dead.

One of the FBI?s deep cover agents gets his cover blown while working on information regarding the drug underworld of which Big F, a well respected and highly feared drug dealer, is prominent. An event occurs which gets several members of HRT killed, Big F?s little brother goes missing, and Web London looks like he?s gone coward and left his team to die.

There?s lots more mayhem, that?s better left discovered by the reader?
