Redeemed itself admirably,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Coffin Dancer: Lincoln Rhyme Book 2 (Paperback)
I had read many encouraging reviews of this book, and its author, so expectations were high.
Disappointment set in when, time and time again, Rhyme was always one step behind in his efforts to catch "the bad guy" - it looked very much as though the book was set for a continuing series of near misses only to end with the inevitable slip-up and capture.
However, it was at this point that Deaver introduced some reasonable twists and re-ignited my interest until the satisfying and acceptable closure.
I am not convinced all plot elements were sound - I too thought Percey's reluctance to accept assistance was unrealistic and I'm not convinced Rhyme's physical predicament added to the story in ways I would have expected - but overall there was certainly enough there for me to buy another Deaver effort or two.
Typos annoy me in novels as I'm sure a cast of thousands is involved in screening before printing, but I think it would be unfair of me to blame the author for them
