The Bone Collector: The thrilling first novel in the bestselling Lincoln Rhyme mystery series

Jeffery Deaver

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Crime & mystery, Thriller / suspense

New York City is thrown into chaos by the assaults of the Bone Collector, a serial kidnapper and killer who taunts the police by giving them the chance to save his victims from death... if only they can solve the obscure clues he leaves behind before time runs out.

The Bone Collector is striking terror amongst the residents of New York City. In desperation, the cops turn 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.
