Jeffery Deaver's latest Lincoln Rhyme novel is a very scary book. Not because the villain is a monster or supernatural or anything close to an alien. What makes the latest Lincoln Rhyme novel keep me up at night contemplating my safety is the tool the villain uses to commit his crimes: data. Data — all the information that, because of the digital world we live in, is more readily available than we like to believe.

In The Broken Window, Deaver successfully combines a startlingly suspenseful story with an important wake-up call to his readers regarding their privacy. Imagine a foe who can destroy your life in just a few clicks of the keyboard and as his grand finale — murder you. Rhyme and his partner, Amelia Sachs, are thwarted at almost every turn by this malevolent adversary, and, as usual with a Deaver story, just when you think you've got it all figured out, there's a surprise.

Publisher Comments:

Bestselling master of suspense Jeffery Deaver is back with a brand-new Lincoln Rhyme thriller.

Lincoln Rhyme and partner/paramour Amelia Sachs return to face a criminal whose ingenious staging of crimes is enabled by a terrifying access to information....

When Lincoln's estranged cousin Arthur Rhyme is arrested on murder charges, the case is perfect — too perfect. Forensic evidence from Arthur's home is found all over the scene of the crime, and it looks like the fate of Lincoln's relative is sealed.

At the behest of Arthur's wife, Judy, Lincoln grudgingly agrees to investigate the case. Soon Lincoln and Amelia uncover a string of similar murders and rapes with perpetrators claiming innocence and ignorance — despite ironclad evidence at the scenes of the crime. Rhyme's team realizes this "perfect" evidence may actually be the result of masterful identity theft and manipulation.

An information service company — the huge data miner Strategic Systems Datacorp — seems to have all the answers but is reluctant to help the police. Still, Rhyme and Sachs and their assembled team begin uncovering a chilling pattern of vicious crimes and coverups, and their investigation points to one master criminal, whom they dub "522."

When "522" learns the identities of the crime-fighting team, the hunters become the hunted. Full of Deaver's trademark plot twists, The Broken Window will put the partnership of Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs to the ultimate test.

Synopsis:

The mysterious 522 commits vicious crimes and then plants ironclad evidence to implicate innocent men. This timely thriller reunites Lincoln Rhyme with his partner and paramour Amelia Sachs, as they face their toughest adversary yet.

Synopsis:

Bestselling Jeffery Deaver is back with a new novel in his beloved Lincoln Rhyme series.

This was my favorite of the Lincoln rhyme novels. I liked the plot, because of the twists and turns and I enjoyed how fleshed out every character was. Even the minor characters were believable. I also like the ongoing plot that continues from Cold Moon.

What I particularly have enjoyed is seeing the character of Pulaski used more. There's a lot that Deaver does with other characters, but in this novel, he brought Pulaski to life and it makes me curious to see what he'll do with him in the future.

Madam Pince, July 12, 2008 (view all comments by Madam Pince)
Stellar as always, although I was surprised the villain was unmasked earlier than usual. Deaver reveals more about Lincoln Rhyme's background with each book, and in The Broken Window he saves most of his trademark "ahas!" for the personal issues (although there's plenty of criminal mayhem flying around -- would it be a Deaver story otherwise?). There also aren't many authors who can poke fun at current culture so slyly, indicated in a typical exchange between Rhyme and NYPD detective Lon Sellitto during a web-monitored takedown:

"You watching, Linc?"

"No, Lon, Dancing with the Celebrities is on. Jane Fonda and Mickey Rooney are up next."

"It's Dancing with the Stars, Linc."
