This book was a disappointment in comparison to the couple other Jeffrey Deaver/Lincoln Rhyme stories I’ve read. I found the pace a bit slow most of the time and some of the repetition had me flipping pages just to get on with it.
The author puts an interesting new spin on terrorism, but draws out the double ending way too long.
Personally, I expected more from a “bestseller.”

This is the first Jeffrey Deaver novel I’ve read, although I’ve seen the movie, The Bone Collector, based on another of his books.
For anyone who loves forensics and whodunits, this novel will more than satisfy your appetite. It was more of a spy thriller, than the serial killer story in Bone Collector.
I found the story a bit slow at first, but then it changed gears and I couldn’t put the book down. Deaver gives us lots of twists and turns making the good guys into bad guys, then flips it around to make you wonder who is good and who is bad.
Personally, I was let down by what I thought was an anti-climatic ending. It seemed like the story ended chapters earlier, but the author dragged it on to tidy things up.
Overall the book is very well written and it keeps you thinking and guessing until the end.
