(The fifth book in the Lincoln Rhyme series)

Another great entry in the Lincoln Ryhmes series. I didn't quite see the twist at the end and really enjoyed the magic theme this time around.

I strongly agree with Slade [below]. The plot is overloaded and there is a lot of materian which appeared in his previous book which was just thrown into this plot. There is no way the magician could have hidden a blood bomb in his head after a police body search, some of the 'tricks' which are needed to make up the plot defy credulity. This reads like an ego trip for the author who is getting his thrill from taking the readers on a roller coster ride with poor psychological infill in the characters and a scathing finish which puts the innocent detective Sachs at the mercy of a corrupt politician. I don't understand the American system so the resolution was not clear to me... a sideways promotion? An ok read but not Deaver's best work.

Most enjoyable throughout. Intriguing twists and turns are emphasized and made credible
for me by details of murderer's
use of magic and illusion.
