In this one, Lincoln Rhyme, Amelia Sachs et al, are on the trail of a serial killer who has murdered a number of people, and has been able to set up innocent persons, with no connection to the crime, to take the fall. The most recent person the killer has set up, is none other than Lincoln's cousin, Arthur Rhyme.
I found this novel a reasonably enjoyable read. The characterisation and plot are good, as always, and the author has certainly thought up a particularly nasty and evil killer, in this story.
There is less twists in the plot also, in comparison with recent Jeffery Deaver novels, which is no bad thing, and the whole 'data mining' part of the storyline would make me think twice about ever taking part in a survey again!
