After reading the Roadside Crosses I was happy to see Lincoln Rhyme back with a bang after reading the first few pages of the Burning Wire at the back of the book. However getting further into the book I kept thinking I needed some sort of degree in electricity and the laws of electrocution. Where as the book is enjoyable enough there is too much unnecessary detail about the dangers of electricity turning half the book into a Health & Safety manual. I liked some of the twists and turns but felf that the last twist was a bit of a cop out and come on has Lincoln not been in this place before asking whether he should go through with the op. Deaver please go bring back the style and class of your early 2 especially the Coffin Dancer which was superb.
