Today I begin work on The Killing Room by Jeffery Deaver. I have been a fan of Deaver's since I first opened the book The Bone Collector. Many can relate that his crime novels featuring Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are up there on their must-reads list. The crime fighting duo are back at it again in their latest The Killing Room which is the 10th in this long running series. I always read these novels hoping that Rhyme will recover from his injuries and will be able bodied but... that wouldn't be very true to life with the seriousness of his handicap. Although, if you're like me and have read all this whole series (except The Burning Wire and The Broken Window), you'll come to realize that it does become formulaic in delivery. That I can forgive so long as Deaver keeps supplying me with the brilliance that is criminology and great storytelling. I hope that The Killing Room is just as fast-paced and thrilling as all the other 9 in the Lincoln Rhyme series. Let's Read!
Synopsis: Robert Moreno, an American citizen living in South America, is shot in the Bahamas by a sniper. The killing was commissioned by the U.S. government, who received a tip-off that Moreno was planning a terrorist attack on a U.S. oil company headquarters. But this intelligence was fatally incorrect: anti-American Moreno ordered a protest at the oil company, not an attack.
Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are drafted in to investigate. While Sachs traces Moreno's steps in New York, Rhyme travels to the scene of the crime in Nassau, where he finds himself on a dangerous path trailed by the sniper himself. As details of the case start to emerge, the pair discover that not all is what it seemed. Can they achieve justice and escape with their lives intact
