Product Description


This is Deaver at his very best and not to be missed by any thriller fan. (Publishers Weekly)

There's no danger of this 10th Lincoln Rhyme outing collecting anything but enthusiastic praise . . . This is Deaver back on his most comfortable territory and the battle with a ruthless killer is delivered with the accumulating menace that has long been Deaver's trademark. Rhyme and Amelisa remain one of the most distinctive duos in crime fiction and Deaver is somehow able to come up with something fresh and unusual for them, even though familiar elements are utilised. What the author is particularly good at is the tense set-piece, as in the police siege at the end of THE KILL ROOM, delivered with panache. As ever he plays fair with the reader. We're given all the relevant information but are nevertheless still jolted by the successive revelations. (Daily Express)

If you want the best crime, try Jeff Deaver (Claudia Winkleman BBC Radio 2 Arts Show)

Deaver might well be expected to rest on his laurels at this point in his career, but his 30th novel is refreshingly ambitious, as his labyrinthine twists lead the reader ever further into a fog of ambiguity about misdirected patriotism, drone warfare, whistle-blowing and free speech (The Irish Times)

An exciting and thoughtful examination of how far government can go . . . Deaver doesn't disappoint. Against a grave and complex legal backstory, he unwinds an elaborate narrative with believable, intriguing characters and fascinating CSI-like investigative aplomb . . . compelling and provocative (Shelf Awareness)

Without doubt my favourite US crime writer (Alex Heminsley BBC Radio 2 Arts Show)

THE KILL ROOM is full of his trademark twists, breathless suspense and ironic humour. It is a thriller of 'bits, scraps, observations (and) 180 degree changes in direction' which never cheats the reader, so that the only response can be sighs of satisfaction and admiration. (Evening Standard)

It's a typically fast-paced ride (Choice)

Book Description

Edge-of-your seat suspense from the ultimate thriller writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Lincoln Rhyme Novel. 17 Aug 2013
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Lincoln Rhyme continues to fight and progress from his wheelchair bound quadriplegia in the same way he attacks his cases. Aided by his loving Amelia Sachs he is on an investigation into a professional assassination of an outspoken critic of US foreign policy, Robert Moreno, in the Bahamas. Assistant New York District Attorney enlists Lincoln Rhyme's expertise in fact-finding with an agenda to enhance their personal profile and ambitions whilst implicating a higher US government official in the conspiracy to add to the confrontations that follow.

Jeffrey Deaver delivers the narrative that follows in a pacey and twisting style. Rhyme and Amelia Sachs piece together the minutiae of evidence in their characteristic obsessional manner. The assassin is ruthless and a step or two ahead of the pursuers, thinking nothing of torturing and murdering potential witnesses and informants of the crime.

The chase for the perpetrator and the people giving the orders and back-up are intriguing if at times implausible. The plot overall is somewhat familiar but still an enjoyable read if not up to Deaver's very best. Well worth reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 5 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I usually enjoy all of Jeffrey Deaver's books, but I found this to be soooo disappointing. Remember The bone collector with all twists & turns - well this one was so predictable! Nothing out of the ordinary at alll. It felt forced & heavy. Once again so disappointed

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special 2 July 2013
By Phil h
Ive read most of mr deavers books and generally enjoy them. This one was standard lincoln rhyme fayre with some twists and lincoln actually leaving his room! BUT i sort of wanted more. some background sections were overly long, the book could have had a little more excitement for my liking. I think deaver fans wont dislike it but i dont think its one of his best

1.0 out of 5 stars Not up to standard! 21 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I normally love Jeffrey Deavers books!! I think I have them all and have loved every one apart from this one. I almost packed it in half way through as it was so boring but forced myself to finish it in case it got better. It didn't. Very disappointing,frustrating and hard to get into. I LOVE Lincoln Rhyme so I will buy his next one in the hope Jeffrey gets back on top form !!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK 1 Mar 2014
By Maddy
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read tbe majority of the Lincoln Rhyme books and have enjoyed them despite finding the main characters Lincoln and Amelia quite unlikable. I now give up - Lincoln is a thoroughly nasty piece of work to all except Amelia and I'm sick to death of Amelia's arthritis! To me the oft repeated problems of being a quadriplegic or having arthritis (wish I could run about with my bad knee!) gets in the way of the story! I do get it - they are brilliant criminalists despite awful adversity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Precision and tension and Lincoln Rhyme 22 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Lincoln Rhyme and therefore of Jeffrey Deaver so this will be a biased review.

You can pick up a brief plot description here [...]

I want to stress to any new reader that with these books you get all the information to solve the crimes, to identify the perpetrators and those clues are repeated every so often with a review of a whiteboard that Lincoln uses to map out the known facts. Yet every time there is some small detail that I, as a reader, have missed and when its happened and the criminal revealed have gone "That's it!"

I enjoy the use of the English language that Deaver uses, his ability to end a chapter in one tense moment then follow it through the following chapter with some thing different or even funny so its not all high tension. The characters are juan, they have their aches and pains and conceits and foibles which makes the book so readable.

My advice however, to any new reader, is to read the Lincoln Rhyme books in order - then you will know the back stories.
