Synopses & Reviews
Forensics expert Lincoln Rhyme, along with his protegee, Amelia Sachs, has been recruited by the FBIto capture "the Ghost" — a homicidal immigrant smuggler. But when they corner him aboard a cargo ship headed for New York, the bust goes disastrously wrong and the Ghost escapes. Now, he must eliminate the only witnesses to his crimes — two families who jumped ship and vanished in the Chinatown underground. Against a brilliant and ruthless adversary, Lincoln and Amelia race to find the families before the Ghost can silence them forever....
Packed with shocking plot twists, breakneck pacing, and heartbreakingly real characters, The Stone Monkey reminds us once again why "People" hailed Jeffery Deaver as "the master of ticking-bomb suspense."
Recruited to help the FBI and the INS perform the nearly impossible, the brilliant criminalist Lincoln Rhyme and his beautiful protege, Amelia Sachs, manage to track down a cargo ship headed for New York City — a vessel filled with illegal Chinese immigrants and run by the notorious human smuggler and ruthless killer known as "the Ghost." But when the Ghost's capture goes disastrously wrong, Lincoln and Amelia find themselves in a race against time: to stop him before he can track down and murder the two surviving families who have escaped and now vanished deep into the labyrinthine world of NewYork's Chinatown.
