Publisher's Summary

In The Coffin Dancer, NYPD criminalist Lincoln Rhyme, tragically paralyzed from a line-of-duty accident, continues to tutor his beautiful protégé, Detective Amelia Sachs, in the art of criminal hunting. Rhyme is certain he's seen this killer before, and his suspicion of an earlier encounter fuels a bitter taste for vengeance. When the chameleonlike assassin targets three federal witnesses for death, the stakes reach a new high. Rhyme's brainpower and Sachs' legwork are the only tools they have to track the cunning murderer through the subways, parks, and airports of a darkly painted New York City. And they have only 48 hours before the Coffin Dancer strikes again. Deaver uses his trademark plot twists to keep this fast-paced, masterly thriller steamrolling along with breathtaking speed. This is suspense of the highest order.

Too Short

I love the writing of Jeffery Deaver. I have read about 4 other books of his. I had surgery on my eyes, can"t see now. Really VERY disapointed I purchased the abridged version. I didn't realize till too late. This book was so well written and has great characters and a great plot/story line. The readers voice for Amelia Sachs was awful. Very whiney and helpless. Not the Amelia of my reading.

Deaver is excellent.

I decided to start over as it has been years since I read any of the Lincoln Rhyme series. Audible is a pretty cool service. Perhaps it was how I downloaded it, but I did encounter an error of repeated dialogue with around 3 min to go. Hopefully others do not encounter this error. Highly recommend any of Deaver's work.
