Publisher's Summary

Number one best-selling author and master of suspense Jeffery Deaver returns with the 13th Lincoln Rhyme thriller, which sees a crime go global....

The only leads in a broad-daylight kidnapping are the account of an eight-year-old girl, some nearly invisible trace evidence and the calling card: a miniature noose left lying on the street. A crime scene this puzzling demands forensic expertise of the highest order. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are called in to investigate.

Then the case takes a stranger turn: a recording surfaces of the victim being slowly hanged, his desperate gasps the backdrop to an eerie piece of music. The video is marked as the work of The Composer....

Despite their best efforts, the suspect gets away. So when a similar kidnapping occurs on a dusty road outside Naples, Rhyme and Sachs don't hesitate to rejoin the hunt. But the search is now a complex case of international cooperation - and not all those involved may be who they seem. All they can do is follow the evidence before their time runs out.

    Story
    "A good book with a peculiar end."
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I don't like to sound like an old bore but a more conventional and possibly more believable ending would have been nice.

    The basic premis of the book is interesting and it feels like it's going to be a classic Lincoln and Sax romp. A little unfortunately, approximately 3/4 through the book the plot takes a sideways dive and comes off a little unbelievable. It's almost like the writer allowed some excitable child in his family to script the final twist.


    What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Just a fantastic narrator. Certainly one of the best on Audible.


    Any additional comments?

    I know I have said that the ending is a little strange but the book was very enjoyable nevertheless. Certainly worth a read even if you have not read the other books in this series.

    It's nice to catch up with the characters, Lincoln's relentless pursuit of alcohol, Sax's endless car fanaticism and Tom's constant mothering. and I particularly enjoyed the new dynamic of taking them outside the US.

    Story
    "The worst Rhyme book to date"

    This book has a number of implausible plot elements, implausible changes in characters' attitudes, and the worst, clumsiest and least plausible plot twist in any of the Rhyme books (and any book I have read in years by any author). The grating product placement is actually one of the less annoying things in the book.

    I actually didn't bother listening to the last 25 minutes, even on a tedious drive to a remote site. It completely lost my interest.

    "good listen and different out of the US"

    predictable at times. But being set outside the US with a host of different supprting characters made a big change .

    "oh dear."

    Brilliant narration. Not up to the usual standard of Lincoln rhyme book that we all love and know.
    seems to be a little bit politically motivated.
    it's a real shame because I have loved every other Lincoln rhyme novel but I won't be revisiting this one.

    "Another great Rhyme story"

    ........but it was mostly set in Italy and I missed New York and all the characters there. Jeff Harding was as usual a brilliant narrator but his Italian accent wasn't that good though it seemed to improve.

    "A Little Elongated"

    As usual I looked forward to the next Rhyme episode. It didn't disappoint but I felt the end had rather been dragged out for the sake of it.

    "Not his best work"

    I loved Lincoln Rhyme novels it for me this one didn't quite come up to scratch. No real tension, a relatively weak plot line and the grand reveal was ultimately disappointing. K but not good or even great.
