Publisher's Summary

December. The night of the full, cold moon. A young man is found dead in lower Manhattan, the first in a series of victims of a man calling himself the Watchmaker. This killer's obsession with time drives him to plan the murders with eerie precision. Lincoln Rhyme, Amelia Sachs and the rest of their crew are brought in to handle the case and stop the Watchmaker. But the investigation sets into motion clockwork gears of its own, with consequences for people and events that will endanger not only many lives, but Lincoln's and Amelia's future together.

    "Classic Deaver"

    This book is another classic Lincoln Rhyme tale by Deaver with all his trademark twists and turns. Also augmented by the brilliant characterizations and passion of the narrator. Well worth the download!

    "Gripping, Deaver at his best!"

    As a Deaver fan I listened with some anticipation. The book was gripping. There are so many twists and turns in the story that it is hard to turn it off. About 2 hours from the end I began to lose faith and thought that the complex twists in the plot were unnecessary. I was wrong, almost as I thought this it all became clear! I then thoroughly enjoyed the book right up to the end. I Can't wait for the next book!!

    "Satisfyingly complex"

    I read a lot of mystery stories and sometimes they can get a bit predictable. Not this one- some seriously good twists and a marvellous sense of satisfaction when everything comes together at the end. Well suited to the slower pace of an audiobook, and well presented by the narrator.

    "I was dubious but it's a good one"

    I have to say I was dubious for the first hour or two of this book. I have never had an audiobook of a Jeffrey Deaver book before and wasn't sure I liked the narrator. But after that I really got into it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Stick with it - it's a great book and very well read - the twists and turns will make you not want to pause it.

    "Complex but Satisfying"

    As a long term fan of Deaver (& Ryme) I was eagerly awaiting this latest addition to the series. It was worth waiting for. Though somewhat over-complex (how many twists does a story need?) it was, as usual, fast paced & full of the flavour of New York.

    A good one & very well narated too. If you're a crime fan - get it.

    "A welcome return to form"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As a part of the Lincoln Rhyme series, definitely. The story is gripping, the narration is excellent, the action moves along quickly and a new female character is introduced - Kathryn Dance from the C.B.I. She is a welcome addition to what can be a male dominated world.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cold Moon?

    The introduction of the murderer was brilliant - very macabre but very effective.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favourite?

    I love the characters of Lincoln and Amelia. However this time I preferred Kathryn Dance. She was bought to life very well by George Guidall, and it was nice for Amelia to have another female character to bounce off.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Any moment where Lincoln and Amelia are alone is always welcome. It is nice to have a break from the murder and mayhem and focus on human relationships.


    Any additional comments?

    Jeffery Deaver is one of my favourite thriller writers. He writes with a very keen eye for the forensic detail, but doesn't forget about the rest of the story. This is one of his better entries in the series.

    "Another Lincoln Rhyme!"

    When the audio started, I thought it was some stage show melodrama performmed by Frazer of Dad's Army! It was all doom - fortunately the introduction narrator handed over to real narrator, thank goodness - the story unfolded in real style.
    As all Jeffrey Deaver there are so many twists and turns to keep everyone guessing right to the very end.
    The story revolves around the Watchmaker, which I could relate to, having been involved in that sphere personally. the accuracy of every detail is amazing and helps maintain the trepidation and associated terror throughout.
    If you have not read or listened to any Lincon Rhyme / Jeffrey Deaver, this is a very good place to start.
    Trust me - I'm a Watchmaker!
