Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lincoln Rhyme is back, on the trail of a killer whose weapon of choice cripples New York City with fear.

The weapon is invisible and omnipresent. Without it, modern society grinds to a halt. It is electricity. The killer harnesses and steers huge arc flashes with voltage so high and heat so searing that steel melts and his victims are set afire.

When the first explosion occurs in broad daylight, reducing a city bus to a pile of molten, shrapnel-riddled metal, officials fear terrorism. Rhyme, a world-class forensic criminologist known for his successful apprehension of the most devious criminals, is immediately tapped for the investigation. Long a quadriplegic, he assembles NYPD detective Amelia Sachs and officer Ron Pulaski as his eyes, ears and legs on crime sites, and FBI agent Fred Dellray as his undercover man on the street. As the attacks continue across the city at a sickening pace, and terrifying demand letters begin appearing, the team works desperately against time and with maddeningly little forensic evidence to try to find the killer. Or is it killers . . . ?

Meanwhile, Rhyme is consulting on another high-profile investigation in Mexico with a most coveted quarry in his crosshairs: the hired killer known as the Watchmaker, one of the few criminals to have eluded Rhyme’s net.

Juggling two massive investigations against a cruel ticking clock takes a toll on Rhyme’s health. Soon Rhyme is fighting on yet another front—and his determination to work despite his physical limitations threatens to drive away his closest allies when he needs them most . . .

Synopsis:

Tech-savvy Deaver's latest entry in the fan-favorite Lincoln Rhyme series, involving the brilliant quadriplegic criminologist and his partner/paramour.

Synopsis:

Bestselling and award-winning author Jeffery Deaver brings back fan favorite duo Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs with the plot development that everyone’s been waiting for…

Quadriplegic forensic criminalist Lincoln Rhyme has been fully paralyzed since listeners first met him. His partner Amelia Sachs has been his eyes, his ears, his legs, and even became his paramour somewhere along the way. In The Burning Wire, his wrenching debate about undergoing risky treatment to improve his condition is finally resolved—a decision that threatens to derail his most important case to date…and to have even more dire consequences.

Energy is on everyone’s mind—from renewables to the price of oil to the controversy over nuclear power. The Burning Wire finds Rhyme, Sachs, and the cast of characters from Deaver’s earlier novels in a breathless two-day race to stop a twisted killer, whose horrific weapon of choice is the very energy that powers our lives.
