The Coffin Dancer

by Jeffery Deaver

‘Lincoln Rhyme’ series Book #2

Detective Lincoln Rhyme, the foremost criminalist in the NYPD, is put on the trail of the Coffin Dancer, a cunning professional killer who has continually alluded the police. Rhyme – a quadriplegic since a line-of-duty accident – must use his wits to track this brilliant killer who’s been hired to eliminate three witnesses in the last hours before their grand jury testimony. Rhyme works with his eyes and ears, New York City cop Amelia Sachs, to gether information from trace evidence at the crime scene to nail him, or at least to predict his next move and head him off.

So far, they have only one clue: the assassin has a tattoo on his arm of the Grim Reaper waltzing with a woman in front of a coffin.

Review: Holy cow, what an awesome book! I thought the Bone Collector was good, this one’s better. Although most of the characters are the same, you feel more personal toward them all, especially Lincol and Amelia. Terrific, fast-paced plot, twists that leave you with the hair raising on the back of your nect, turns that leave you flipping the pages well after midnight (I know I did.) Added sexual tension between Lincoln and Amelia brought a whole new sizzle, and the last chapter left you with a ‘ooo-la-la’ remark. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone, and I’ll be so disappointed if the rest of the series doesn’t measure up to this one. Awesome, awesome book!
