Publisher's Summary

New York City is thrown into chaos by the assaults of the Bone Collector, a serial kidnapper and killer who gives the police a chance to save his victims from death by leaving obscure clues. The cops go 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.

Abridged too far

It is a pity that this book has been abridged. The story is disjointed and doesn't flow properly, and a lot of important information has been hacked out. What remains is the bleeding corpse of a novel.

I sincerely hope that the publishers produce an unabridged version of this book. The author deserves better than what he got with this hack job.

Having said that, the pace and general plot seem to have survived somehow.
