Publisher's Summary

New York is being held to ransom. Manhattan's electricity grid has been the victim of a horrific attack... and more are planned. While the FBI tries to determine who's behind the carnage, Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs race to decode the forensics and prevent the next assault. But all is not what it seems, and Lincoln Rhyme soon finds he's up against a merciless killer with a unique weapon - one that can be found in everyone's home and office....

As good as ever

I thought I might begin to tire of Lincoln And his cohorts but this one is as good as the previous. The unsub does not appear as chillingly evil as previous ones but continues to cause convulsions in the story. I also enjoy the building on characters from previous books.

Pity about the narration

If you could sum up The Burning Wire in three words, what would they be?

Enjoyable story line.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was easy to listen to and read well but there was very little tone change between the characters which makes it boring. Not up to expectations.

Another classic Deaver

As always Jeffery Deaver delivers a plot with more twists than a packet of pipe cleaners

Good story, not so sure about the narration

I am a fan of the Lincoln Rhyme stories, and this on a par with the others I have read. I'm not so sure about the narration here. The reader is very proficient, but his voice sounds rather bland and boring to me, and I don't think he differentiates between characters very well. Maybe I'll stick to Jeffrey Deaver print books in future.

OK

This was quite interesting, though a trifle TOO technical in places, the story was full of the typical Jeffery Deaver twists and turns. It held my interested on the whole and I quite liked some of the supporting characters.
