This review is from: The Burning Wire: Lincoln Rhyme Book 9 (Lincoln Rhyme Thrillers) (Hardcover)
Someone is using the electical grid system in New York to murder people. Lincoln Rhyme, along with the FBI, the NYPD, and Homeland Security are trying to track the killer down, before they strike again.
The Burning Wire gets off to a fast start, as a small urban power station is overloaded causing an arc flash to kill a passerby. The story is very exciting for the first 100 or so pages, and the characters of Rhyme, Sachs etc, are solid. However, as the story progressed I felt it became a bit 'bogged down'. Overall, it is not a bad thriller, but not one of the better ones in this series.
