This book is a stand alone thriller, not a part of Deaver’s Lincoln Rhyme series. I say this because the only reason I picked this one up was because I thought it was another of the Lincoln Rhyme books.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one, as it engaged me right from the start, and kept me going right up to the end.
It involves game theory and psychology, good guys, bad guys, intrigue, fast action, in general all the things I was looking for to keep my mind off of the surgery my mom was undergoing.
I don’t want to give much away and spoil it for those who have not read it, so here is a quote from the Jeffery Deaver site <http://www.jefferydeaver.com/>:
This stand-alone thriller, based in Washington, DC, is about a federal agent who risks his life to protect a police detective from a “lifter” hired to extract information using any means at his disposal. This particular lifter prefers to get an edge on his target by kidnapping or endangering their family.
I have enjoyed all of the Lincoln Rhyme and Kathryn Dance books, and I hope he writes more of
