Description

On a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering in the black sky over New York City, two people are brutally murdered, the death scenes marked by eerie, matching calling cards: moon-faced clocks investigators fear ticked away the victims' last moments on earth. Renowned criminologist Lincoln Rhyme immediately identifies the clock distributor and has the chilling realization that the killer, who has dubbed himself the Watchmaker, has more murders planned in the hours to come.

Rhyme, a quadriplegic long confined to his wheelchair, immediately taps his trusted partner and longtime love, Amelia Sachs, to walk the grid and be his eyes and ears on the street. But Sachs has other commitments now, namely, her first assignment as lead detective on a homicide of her own. As she struggles to balance her pursuit of the infuriatingly elusive Watchmaker with her own case, Sachs unearths shocking revelations about the police force that threaten to undermine her career, her sense of self, and her relationship with Rhyme. As the Rhyme-Sachs team shows evidence of fissures, the Watchmaker is methodically stalking his victims and planning a diabolical criminal masterwork. Indeed, the Watchmaker may be the most cunning and mesmerizing villain Rhyme and Sachs have ever encountered.

Commentaires

"[Even] Deaver fans...will be hard-pressed to peel back all the layers of the cunning plot at work beneath the surface." ( Publishers Weekly)
"As always, Deaver's dialogue is exceptionally realistic, and his plotting is devilishly intricate." ( Booklist)

Histoire un peu tirée par les cheveux

Une histoire un brin trop compliquée à mon goût (combien de fois d'affilée est-ce que l'on va se laisser prendre ?) mais une très belle performance de Joe Mantegna, de Criminal Minds !

Strained Believability (Possible Spoiler)

I've read or listened to a number of Deaver titles and really enjoy his stories and style. Without giving too much away, this story was clipping along right well when it suddenly became farcical and unbelievable. As a result, the rest of the book became fodder that I simply limped through.

The reader was good but I'd select a different Deaver title such as "The Bone Collector," "The Coffin Dancer," "The Empty Chair," or "The Blue Nowhere."

The Cold Moon

It seems like it might be a good story, but this is only an ABRIDGED version. It suffers as a result. Even worse (much worse), the reader is frankly terible. I was disappointed.

Classic Rhymes

The book moves at a fast pace, keeping the reader's attention throughout. One of my favorites, although all of the Lincoln Rhyme series are favorites.

Its alright.

I like Deaver alot but this story didn't grab me to well. The reader is good at some books but others he isn't to great. Lincoln Rhyme is a great character though.
