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 ...
Brilliant criminalist and quadriplegic Lincoln Rhyme returns in his tenth adventure, Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver's electrifying new thriller.

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
