Matthew Dunn, author of The Spycatcher, on The Bone Collector...

What happens if you take Sherlock Holmes cantankerous, yet brilliant analytical brain, put it in a body that cannot move, make him a modern American, and move his home from London to New York?  You have Lincoln Rhyme, a quadriplegic detective.  A former NYPD forensic investigator, Rhyme lost the use of his limbs while on duty, and since medical discharge has been an occasional consulting detective.  From his room, he uses his deductive powers to identify and track down a serial killer in New York.  There are many excellent crime thrillers featuring serial killers, but to my knowledge The Bone Collector, and the subsequent Rhyme novels, is unique given the severe physical constraints of the protagonist.  Crime storytelling at its peak.

The Bone Collector Synopsis

New York City is thrown into chaos by the assaults of the Bone Collector, a serial kidnapper and killer who gives the police a chance to save his victims from death by leaving obscure clues. The cops go to Lincoln Rhyme, an ex-NYPD forensics expert left paralysed after an accident on the job. Rhyme reluctantly postpones his ambitions towards suicide and puts together a forensic investigation team, enlisting as his eyes and ears young police officer Amelia Sachs. Rhyme digs deep into the only world he has left - his astonishing mind - and slowly begins to narrow the noose around the Bone Collector. But the kidnapper is narrowing his own noose - around Lincoln Rhyme.
