May 2014 Book of the Month.

This is forensic scientist, quadriplegic Lincoln Rhyme’s eleventh case.  He is an interesting character surrounded by a great team so fans will be among old favourites.  Newcomers will be fine for Jeffery Deaver is very good at introducing you to his characters in each book.  This is the follow-up to The Bone Collector, his first case.  Here old adversary, The Watchmaker, is now dead in prison(!).  Rhyme is most interested as to who will collect the ashes and one of his colleagues goes undercover to find out.  So with plot and counterplot, twist and then some, this bounds along at a compulsive pace.  Short chapters leave you anxiously moving on in an excellent thriller

The Skin Collector Synopsis

COPYCAT? OR REVENGE? They have never seen a murder like it. A talented tattoo artist is using poison instead of ink. His victim is a young woman. And on her skin he's left a message: 'the second'. Drafted in to investigate, NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme and his associate Amelia Sachs find the scene has been scrubbed of evidence. All except for one trace - a scrap of paper that connects this case with one they will never forget. And like the Bone Collector before him, Rhyme and Sachs find themselves pitted against a twisted serial killer choosing his victims seemingly at random, a perpetrator who plans his work to the last detail, in a deadly contest with any who try to stop him. But how close is his connection with that old case? What is the meaning of the words tattooed in poison on the skin of his first victim? And where will he strike next?
