Quadriplegic criminologist Lincoln Rhyme and his partner, Amelia Sachs, return in this story, which finds them pitted against another punctilious killer. Narrator Edoardo Ballerini is perfectly in tune with the Rhyme character, emphasizing the detective's great intellect and questionable people skills with his pointed delivery, while not suppressing the wit in the writing. His voicing of the other characters is full of subtleties that contribute to a thrilling listen, particularly his depiction of the killer, who presents a convincing picture of a sad loner with a terrifying mission. This is a typical Jeffrey Deaver tale, filled with interwoven plots that can send the listener's mind off in completely the wrong direction, and Ballerini ensures that the end result is a thoroughly gripping listen.
