It was a "million-dollar bullet," a sniper shot delivered from over a mile away. Its victim was no ordinary mark: he was a United States citizen, targeted by the United States government, and assassinated in the Bahamas.
The nation's most renowned investigator and forensics expert, Lincoln Rhyme, is drafted to investigate. While his partner, Amelia Sachs, traces the victim's steps in Manhattan, Rhyme leaves the city to pursue the sniper himself. As details of the case start to emerge, the pair discovers that not all is what it seems.
When a deadly, knife-wielding assassin begins systematically eliminating all evidence--including the witnesses--Lincoln's investigation turns into a chilling battle of wits against a cold-blooded killer.

book 10 of 14

All of Deaver's work is well researched and well written and this is no exception so the tradecraft rings true and would be on par with Tom Clancy. This one has a satisfying plot twist and I would consider one of his stellar works.

Too dry and uninteresting for me to finish

This is classic Deaver with lots of cliff hanging moments.

Deaver is on my 'carry list' of authors every trip to the library. This one upholds Deaver's ability to pick up the pace and grip the reader from start to finish. Clear, exciting, complex and thoroughly compelling reading. His device of inserting the evidence list with additions from time to time could be left behind - but I can see it helping keep 'bedtime readers', who may sometimes get drowsy, to keep on track. I'd say 4.5 stars.

Lincoln Rhyme, super investigator in a wheelchair,once more saving the Homeland with a little bit of help from his friends.All the gysmos and gadgets, not to mention the rare and unusual ballistics.Even some very fancy food.Apart from the raft acronyms which go with the territory, what a read. Keeping up with all the twists and turns was an achievement.Jeffrey Deaver is a thriller writer par excellence.

I only ready the first 150 pages or so and stopped reading. First novel I attempted to read by this author, and i definitly wont be reading any more. BORING!!!

A good plot; however, too many repeated details of the crimes. I don't think this is one of his best works.

Books by this author are very violent and often gruesome. The interaction between the characters is very interesting.
