Jeffery Deaver can always be counted on to bring readers a thriller that will keep them on the edge of their seats. This is a review of The Kill Room, the eleventh book in the Lincoln Rhyme series; the format is audio and read by Jay Snyder, January LaVou, and Edoardo Ballerini.
Lincoln Rhyme, a quadriplegic criminologist, genius, former police officer, and specialist for law enforcement agencies, lives in a brownstone in New York City. His home is equipped with high tech equipment that he uses to investigate and solve crimes. Amelia Sachs is his live-in lover and a member of the NYPD. She also assists Rhyme in his investigations. In this installment, they are investigating the murder of a US citizen who passionately hated the US. The man was in a hotel room in Nassau, Bahamas, when he was struck by a sniper's bullet from over a mile away. Obstacles stand in the way of the investigation.
Jeffery Deaver knows how to keep the reader engaged. He is the master of complex story lines filled with numerous twists and turns. Part of what I like about this series is the relationship between Lincoln and Amelia; readers have seen the relationship slowly mature. I also like the way Lincoln Rhyme is portrayed. Despite his physical limitations, he is productive and likes challenges. He continues to use his mind and now allows himself to care for someone else. In this tale, Rhyme travels to Nassau to further investigate the crime. This is a first for the great detective. I hope Jeffery Deaver will continue this series well into the future.
