Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of the Lincoln Rhyme series, a short story about Lincoln Rhyme solving a mysterious plane crash with no forensic evidence.

A small jet with only one pilot onboard crashes into the Atlantic Ocean. Local authorities are unsure whether the cause of the crash is a bomb or a violent storm. The case seems like it will be an easy one to solve for former NYPD homicide detective Lincoln Rhyme to solve. The evidence is inside the cockpit, but there is one problem. The wreckage sits at the bottom of the Puerto Rican Trench, the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, that stretches to 28,000 feet. The plane can't be raised. And there's no way to get to where the evidence lies.

"Where the Evidence Lies" by Jeffery Deaver is one of 20 short stories within Mulholland Books' Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the biggest names in mystery from the Strand Magazine archives. View the full series list at mulhollandbooks.com and listen to them all!

Interesting Premise, Dull Story, Great Narration

This was a short story about the famous forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme solving a case without forensics. This was the third short story of Jeffrey Readers that I have read. While this has the usual trademark twist, it didn't engage or interest me like the other two I've read. It was a regular police procedural. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audiobook. Narrator Allan Robertson was excellent and made this story better than by just reading alone.

Meh

It's too short to really develop anything. You don't care about the poor schmuck who died. You don't care about the other people in the story. You don't even really care about Sachs or Rhyme; if you didn't already know them, you wouldn't be interested in getting to know them further.

Everything has to be explained in the last paragraph. That doesn't work even in a short story. No idea how they zeroed in on the suspect. The only interesting thing is that this is about witnesses and not evidence, so it could have been a fascinating twist for Rhyme who doesn't trust witnesses and only trusts the evidence!

The narration is mediocre.
