From the author of The Burial Hour, New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver's masterly thriller travels at breakneck speed as criminologist Lincoln Rhyme and his protégé Amelia Sachs track down an ingenious killer.

Detective Lincoln Rhyme, the foremost criminalist in the NYPD, is on the hunt for an elusive murderer known as the Coffin Dancer. He’s a brilliant hit man who changes his appearance faster than he adds to his trail of victims, only one of whom has lived long enough to offer a clue: the assassin has an eerie tattoo on his arm of the Grim Reaper waltzing in front of a casket.

Rhyme, paralyzed from a line-of-duty accident, is certain he’s seen this killer before, and his suspicion of an earlier encounter fuels a bitter taste for vengeance. When the chameleon-like assassin targets three federal witnesses for death, the stakes reach a new high. Now Rhyme’s brainpower and his protégée Detective Amelia Sachs’s legwork are the only tools they have to track the cunning murderer through a darkly painted New York City—and they have only forty-eight hours before the Coffin Dancer strikes again.

Like Deaver’s previous bestselling Lincoln Rhyme novels, this psychological thriller combines spine-chilling forensic detail with a turbocharged plot. This is page-turning suspense of the highest order.

This was a re-read for me. Excellent book, great characters, very enjoyable read

A terrific murder mystery with all the plot twists and modern crime solving techniques we love to read in Deaver's books. A most satisfying read.

This was an excellent follow-up to Jeffery Deaver's first Lincoln Rhyme novel, The Bone Collector. And the case they're on in this one is no less chilling. I loved every word! And the ending was fantastic; I never saw it coming!!!
