A killer flees the scene of a homicide at a prestigious Manhattan music school and locks himself in a classroom. Within minutes the police have him surrounded. Then a scream rings out, followed by a gunshot. The police break down the door. The room is empty.
Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are brought in to investigate. For the ambitious Sachs, solving the case could earn her a promotion. For the quadriplegic Rhyme, it means relying on his protégé to ferret out a master illusionist they've dubbed 'the conjurer', who baits them with murders that become more diabolical with each crime.
As the fatalities rise and the minutes tick down, the pair must move beyond the smoke and mirrors to prevent a terrifying act of vengeance that could become the greatest vanishing act of all.
another good book intresting griping and thrilling this is a good series of books enjoyable
This is a really good listen really enjoyable
And it takes you on a journey through the world of illusion and magic
Better one Jeffrey. A storyline with many twists and turns. An OK read. And a first class narration as is his usual standard
Nothing is as it seems and once you get used to that it becomes too easy to predict the twists. However the performance was great with accents and acting rather than simple narration. The characters were believable and interesting.
Jeffrey Deaver you have done it again Brilliant story had my attention all the way with the twists and turns and Narrated very well by Jeff Harding
A thoroughly original whodunnit. With a fascinating but straightforward plot this makes perfect audiobook easy listening. The characters are strong, the writing is strong and the reader is great. All together a fun book.
As usual Jeffery Deaver has written a magnificent book. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia what a team
