The Kill Room Synopsis

The tenth novel in the critically acclaimed Lincoln Rhyme series, from Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver. They are calling it the 'million-dollar bullet': a sniper shot from a near-impossible distance. But there is no crime scene investigation, no evidence, and no co-operation from the local Bahamian police. Ambitious New York district attorney Nance Laurel won't let it go. This murder has all the hallmarks of a contract killing, and she has evidence that the order came from the highest levels of the US government. Putting her career on the line, she calls in independent investigators: Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs. No strangers to controversy, their reputation for seeing what others miss is unparalleled, and she knows they will risk everything - even their lives - to seek the truth ...

The Kill Room Press Reviews

Praise for THE BURNING WIRE -- : 'Deaver can be relied on to deliver high tension - in this case it comes in every sense of the expression.' - The Times

 

'Jeffery Deaver is something of a summer tradition for thriller fans, and a Lincoln Rhyme novel makes for a bumper year ... Deaver's pacy prose is addictive enough to result in dreadful sunburn if read on the beach, so approach with caution.' -- Independent on Sunday

 

'Ingenious plotting is combined with ample helpings of information, about both New York's infrastructure and the hero's disability' - The Sunday Times

'Brilliant ... it's easy to get swept up in the sheer velocity of the action' - Scotsman

'The art of writing blockbuster thrillers is not easily mastered but Deaver has it at his fingertips. One of his specialities is the out-of-left-field revelation and THE BURNING WIRE is brimming with them.' - Daily Express

'With 26 novels to his name Deaver is an old hand at delivering the goods ... he still does it better than most, whacking his readers with a neat one-two plot twist as they enter the final straight.' - Observer Thriller of the Month

'Deaver is a master of misdirection and the plot will keep you guessing to the end. A powerful read indeed.' - Evening Standard
