When a truck driver is murdered, solving the crime is not the priority... Find out why in a brand new Lincoln Rhyme short story from No.1 bestselling author Jeffery Deaver.
Eduardo Rinaldo was a deliveryman - though some of his cargo was less than legit. When he's found murdered, Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs take the case; but soon their focus moves from catching a killer to hunting down the last delivery he made. Somewhere in New York City, some very dangerous goods are missing... and Rhyme and Sachs are not the only people on the trail.
A slice of devious Deaver brilliance, THE DELIVERYMAN also includes a sneak peek of the forthcoming twelfth Lincoln Rhyme novel, THE STEEL KISS.
