Dangerously good. Distinctively Deaver.

Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs return to New York City to confront a killer terrorizing couples at their happiest—and most vulnerable.

In the early hours of a quiet, weekend morning in Manhattan’s Diamond District, a brutal triple murder shocks the city. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs quickly take the case. Curiously, the killer has left behind a half-million dollars’ worth of gems at the murder scene, a jewelry store on Forty-Seventh Street. As more crimes follow, it becomes clear that the killer’s target is not gems but engaged couples themselves.

The Promisor vows to take the lives of men and women during their most precious moments—midway through the purchase of an engagement ring, after a meeting with a wedding planner, trying on the perfect gown for a day that will never come. The Promisor arrives silently, armed with knife or gun, and a time of bliss is transformed, in an instant, to one of horror.

Soon the Promisor makes a dangerous mistake: leaving behind an innocent witness, Vimal Lahori, a talented young diamond cutter, who can help Rhyme and Sachs blow the lid off the case. They must track down Vimal before the killer can correct his fatal error. Then disaster strikes, threatening to tear apart the very fabric of the city—and providing the perfect cover for the killer to slip through the cracks.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rhyme may be the working brain on this crew, but hang on when his partner, Amelia Sachs, does her spooky-psych thing and projects herself into the mind of this sick killer.” New York Times Book Review
“The nerve-jangling resolution of Deaver’s latest chiller is as sparkling as any of the gems at the center of The Cutting Edge…[with] one of the most vertiginous cliff-hangers.” Independent (Dublin)
“Another explosive book in the series…Deaver is a master.” Suspense Magazine
“[A] roller-coaster ride of a thriller.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The cast of characters is large, and narrator Edoardo Ballerini deftly gives each of them a nuanced voice, which helps the listener stay oriented as the plot grows increasingly complex. Ballerini relies on an impressive array of accents—Indian, Russian, British, and, of course, New York cop.” AudioFile
