Jeffery Deaver is the master of plots, and his Lincoln Rhyme novels are the epitome of the police-procedural suspense novel. In The Burning Wire
, Deaver is at the top of his game as Rhyme takes on an old nemesis while tracking a murderer who has an unusual and shocking method of killing.
Rhyme is one of fiction's most unusual and mesmerizing characters: a world-renowned criminologist trapped in a wheelchair, unable to perform the physical functions of his job but with a mind that is brilliant at piecing together forensic puzzles. Despite his limitations, Rhyme is always a force to be reckoned with; his energy drives the story and his team as they race to find the pieces of each new puzzle before the killer strikes again. Of course, it would not be a Deaver novel without several plot twists and reversals, and The Burning Wire is no exception. Although, in this case, the final twist is definitely one you won't see coming.
