Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

A 2009 International Thriller Writers Award Nominee for Best Novel

SOON TO BE A MAJOR TELEVISION EVENT FROM NBC, STARRING RUSSELL HORNSBY, ARIELLE KEBBEL, AND MICHAEL IMPERIOLI.

Lincoln Rhyme faces “an Orwellian nightmare” (The New York Times) as a twisted techno-genius destroys lives with impunity by stealing personal information from behind the impenetrable walls of cyberspace.

Rhyme’s cousin Arthur has been arrested on murder charges, and the evidence against the estranged relative Lincoln hasn’t seen in years is perfect—too perfect. Lincoln and his partner Amelia Sachs piece together a deadly pattern of similarly vicious frame-ups that leads them to the imposing Strategic Systems Datacorp—and a master of identity theft and manipulation known only as “522.” But cracking this ingenious killer’s realm places Rhyme and Sachs exactly where “522” wants them—in line to be the next victims.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the most unnerving of Deaver’s Lincoln Rhyme novels...[with a] mad genius who is smarter and scarier than the genre’s garden-variety nut jobs.” New York Times
“Rhyme still intrigues in his eighth outing, while Deaver’s scarily believable depiction of identity theft in a total-surveillance society stokes our paranoia.” Entertainment Weekly
“Entertaining...the topical subject matter makes the story line particularly compelling.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Dennis Boutsikaris gives a subtle performance as understated as it is convincing. Boutsikaris knows exactly how to bring a character to life and how to captivate listeners with Deaver’s surprising plot twists. The strong-minded yet vulnerable protagonists demonstrate Boutsikaris’ ability to craft original, sympathetic characters. A thrilling ride is sure to excite listeners from start to finish.” AudioFile
“Deaver has built his reputation on the strength of well-drawn characters; hyperrealistic dialogue (you don’t read it, you hear it); and right-angle plot twists that are impossible to predict. There is no one quite like Deaver—or like Lincoln Rhyme.” Booklist
“Dennis Boutsikaris’ reading of Deaver’s latest Lincoln Rhyme thriller is positively chilling...[His] reading is excellent, but he really ratchets the intensity when performing the passages told from the killer’s point of view. His delivery fully embraces the cold, calculating mind of the murderer, imbuing his seemingly dispassionate thoughts with an underlying sense of barely controlled rage and menace.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“[Deaver’s] cat-and-mouse game of staying a step ahead of a killer is just as compelling as always.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
