Format: Paperback
All of Jeffrey Deavers books are thoroughly enjoyable and this one is no exception. Typically the plot twists and turns quickly. Although I have read most of his books and am used to his style he does still catch me out. Deavers attention to detail is remarkable, whether it is accurate or not isn't the point, the point is he is convincing. This book focuses on 'data mining' a company which collects and sells detailed information on the public for marketing and sales opportunities. Deaver doesnt judge just simply presents the argument for and against; police catching criminals vs invasion of privacy. But what makes this book so good is the interesting and enduring characters, especially the leading two Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs. Their relationship has developed and with each book we learn a little bit more about them. Enjoy.

Lincoln Ryme is almost back to early form from Deaver. This is an intriguing techno- thriller. An unsub has access to ultimate information on anyone, and uses this to rape and kill, whilst at the same time planting evidence to convincinly frame some unwitting patsy of his crime. Lincoln and Amelia quickly home in on a data mining company where most executives are under the spot-light. This gives a decent game of cat and mouse with Lincoln as the master of evidence Vs the man with ultimate knowledge of data. Recommended.

Format: Paperback
Producing good stuff a long way into a lucrative, far-fetched series is not easy, but Jeffrey Deaver has pulled it off with this engaging, pacy thriller and he deserves much praise.

This novel is about the hunt for a killer who murders people then - using identity theft and evidence placement - puts a sap in the frame for the authorities to incarcerate. It's a strong premise and, even though Mr Deaver shows it early, he effortlessly creates a strong narrative around the kind of people and organisations that could do this stuff to anyone. Each twist is well-camouflaged and impactful and the over-arching universe - that there are people out there who know everything about you - is well-described and, candidly, terrifying. The killer - when revealed - is not stupid or absurd. He's in there - if you get the clues - yet unexpected; kudos to Mr Deaver. The points made about how much anyone with access to an internet account and specialist knowledge knows about you are very well made. More than that, Mr Deaver delivers a paranoid vision of the world that matches the seventies 'Parralax View' and echoes more recent thrillers about how the 'net can destroy you, but in a more diciplined and clinical fashion.

The main weakness of the book is that it is part of a series and the 'good guys' in this very strong story are a wheel-chair bound forensic specialist - Lincoln Rhyme - and his partner, a fashion-model-turned-cop called Amelia Sachs. You almost wince as these characters - heroes of previous Deaver works - are re-introduced as they are so cliched and stupid. I am sure when Mr Deaver had to sell the first in this series, a profoundly disabled forensics guy was engagingly different for literary agents and publishers; now it feels contrived and ridiculous.

Format: Paperback
The latest Lincoln Rhyme novel features the recurring Jeffery Deaver topics of identity theft and the individual's right to privacy. As a former lawyer, Jeff has long been concerned with protecting both civil and personal liberty and with the growth of intrusive surveillance by both governmental and non-governmental agencies.

'The Broken Window' features yet another unhinged serial killer, and develops into the familiar game of cat and mouse between Rhyme, the brilliant quadriplegic forensic scientist, and a very clever criminal sociopath. The killer is an obsessive collector of all manner of consumer goods - the detritus of everyday life - and has access to personal computer data for the victims he targets.

It begins with Lincoln advising the (British) Metropolitan Police on the apprehension of a global professional killer. He's then informed that his estranged cousin Arthur has been arrested on suspicion of murder, and the case against him seems cast-iron. Naturally, under the Rhyme microscope, flaws are immediately spotted and Lincoln realises he's up against a cunning killer who murders at will, then frames innocent parties after stealing their identity. He places the Met case on hold and diverts his considerable brainpower to the task of apprehending the guilty party, and freeing Arthur.

His investigation leads to a cutting-edge data mining company - Strategic Systems Datacorps (SSD) - who among other things, maintain comprehensive profiles of every American citizen, which they sell to companies targeting a particular demographic. SSD also have a full range of other software programs - both analytical and predictive - which they claim to have developed for the greater good.

Format: Hardcover
Jeffery Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series are well known for their depth of factual information, clever plotting, great characters and many twists, and the Broken Window is no exception. Here, Rhyme and Sachs are pitted against a computer expert intent on wreaking havoc and leaving many dead bodies and framing many innocent parties. One of the latter is Arthur Rhyme, cousin of Lincoln, and best friend of his childhood. Through his detention, Lincoln is brought into the case. The complex plot features a data-mining company, the US government, internet rights activists and high level law enforcement. The technical details, as expected, are thoroughly researched and presented in great detail, which gives complexity and interest to the plot; Rhyme's predilection for physical evidence also proves invaluable and the two combine into a fast-paced plot with the trademark Deaver twists and turns. Along the way, there's perhaps more human interest than is sometimes the case in this series; Rhyme often muses on his childhood and his relationship with Arthur, as well as the causes of its breakdown; Sachs, meanwhile, remains heavily involved with Pam, a character who reappeared in The Cold Moon. Rhyme is also involved with the London Metropolitan Police in a case that features the perpetrator from the Cold Moon, and which provides a nicely open ending...

Excellent - read it!
