"Amelia Sachs is hot on the trail of a killer. She's chasing him through a department store in Brooklyn when an escalator malfunctions. The stairs give way, with one man horribly mangled by the gears. Sachs is forced to let her quarry escape as she jumps in to try to help save the victim. She and famed forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme soon learn, however, that the incident may not be an accident at all, but the first in a series of intentional attacks. They find themselves up against one of their most formidable opponents ever: a brilliant killer who turns common products into murder weapons. As the body count threatens to grow, Sachs and Rhyme must race against the clock to unmask his identity--and discover his mission--before more people die."--Provided by publisher.

Yes, Deaver is far too verbose but not annoyingly unreadable as Harlan Coben. The overuse of non-standard contractions (e.g. "Canada'd" for "Canada would" or "K" for "OK") is jarring. However, this is a very satisfying procedural that combines solid police legwork and CSI analysis on steroids.

711 pages, WOW. Too wordy too much fluff.

Great Lincoln Rhymes book, tho I wish he would downsize a little. It was soooo long. Don't have time for all those pages!

This was a fun romp for a crime story. The first Lincoln Rhyme mystery I have read makes me look forward to reading more. Interesting characters and plot development.

Another page turner.
Just can't beat a Lincoln Rhyme novel.
