Publisher's Summary

Kayleigh Towne is a beautiful and successful singer-songwriter, and Edwin Sharp is her biggest fan. When she replies to one of his fan letters with 'XO', Edwin is convinced she loves him, and that her latest hit song "Your Shadow" was written for him. Nothing Kayleigh or her lawyers can say persuades him otherwise. Then the singer gets an anonymous phone call - it's the first verse of "Your Shadow" playing. Soon after, one of the crew is horribly murdered.

Kayleigh's friend Kathryn Dance, a special agent with the California Bureau of Investigation, knows that stalking crimes are not one-off occurrences, and sure enough, more verses of the song are played as warnings of death to follow. With a little help from forensic criminalist Lincolyn Rhyme, Dance must use her body language analysis and investigative skills in an attempt to find the killer before more people die.

well researched mystery

A book with it's own music album? I was skeptical at first, but got hooked on to it quickly. The songs are well written and build the type of backdrop needed to set the story in a realistic world. The story is full of surprises and the ending doesn't disappoint either. One of my favorite mystery novels now.

Thoroughly disappointing - dont waste your money

I love Jeffery Deaver but he has really let his readers down with this truly awful long boring drawn out drivel. Hopefully its a filler and he will be back on form soon.

Excellent

This is the third book so far in the Kathryn Dance series and it didn't disappoint. I'm not usually into American crime at all but find the different take on police work refreshing (and well researched) making this far more interesting than the usual. I have enjoyed all three books equally and will be looking forward to a sequel. The narration is good throughout.

sometimes slow-moving; but a good read

My biggest problem with this story was a relative ignorance of facts about the US. What is the second amendment? How do the law enforcement agencies work together across what jurisdiction boundaries?

That said, the story of a country singer with a stalker with murders along the way did work for me. I guess I suspected something about the root causes - but the final dénouement came as a welcome surprise.

Will I want to read more about the lead character, a CBI agent? I'm honestly less sure...

Narrator?

Even though Jeffery Deaver is a great author, the story is ruined by a poor narrator (Marin Ireland). Marin has no experssion and understanding of the story and is very dull!

Twists and turns

And an introduction to Lincoln Rime to boot. As good as the other books in the series and I've pre-ordered the next one.
