When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election.

Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

Hard to guess the ending, the real bad guy will surprise. At a couple of junctions, felt like the story was going on too long. I began wondering when it would end. Probably began feeling the drudgery and annoyance of the reader's super loud breath intakes, water sips, extended reading quirks, etc. The reader did a good job reading; however, the editing is either sloppy or just didn't happen,which seriously affects the quality.

James Patterson and coauthor have done a phenomenal job of keeping the reader engaged and guessing. Just when you think you know whodunit, surprise! Try again.

 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!

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?
