Reviews

Listeners could find parts of this audio to be a bit too intense for comfort. Quadriplegic criminologist Lincoln Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs head an investigative team of high-level detectives and police administrators aiming to keep the "Watchmaker" from succeeding at his next ritual-torture murder and leaving his calling card, a cased clock displaying the phase of the winter "killer" moon. Master detective vs. master criminal and forensic evidence vs. forensic psychology mixed into several diabolical, interesting plots keep the listener thinking and guessing up to the end. This book includes graphic descriptions of crime scenes, moments of intense suspense, and interesting speculations into criminal psychology. Joe Mantegna gives the novel a great reading, and Deaver's intricate plotting of a homicide investigation involving serial killings makes this essential. Very highly recommended for adult fiction collections. Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Mantegna applies his considerable talent to this latest Lincoln Rhymes mystery. Deaver's quadriplegic detective, Rhymes and his partner, Det. Amelia Sachs, attempt to stop a sadistic serial killer known as the Watchmaker, so named because he leaves specially constructed clocks at the site of each of his murders. However, as so often happens in Deaver's stories, not everything is even close to what it seems. Mantegna gives a smooth, no frills performance. He keeps the vocal deviations for each character to a minimum, concentrating instead on making their dialogue natural and realistic. His low-key delivery works especially well when describing the point of view of the Watchmaker or when delving into the inner thoughts of the killer's sexually deviant accomplice. The scenes between the two villains as they calmly discuss the fates of their intended victims, both before and after death, are genuinely chilling in their execution. Deaver fans will be pleased to have Rhymes and Sachs back in a new intricate and compelling thriller, with Mantegna once again serving as an excellent narrator. Simultaneous release with the S&S hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 3). (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
