Publisher's Summary

Detective Lincoln Rhyme, the foremost criminalist in the NYPD, is on the hunt for an elusive murderer, the Coffin Dancer. He's a brilliant hitman who changes his appearance even faster than he adds to his trail of victims, only one of whom has lived long enough to offer a clue: The assassin has an eerie tattoo on his arm of the Grim Reaper waltzing with a woman in front of a casket.
Like his previous best-selling novels A Maiden's Grave and The Bone Collector, Jeffery Deaver's latest psychological thriller combines spine-chilling forensic detail with a turbocharged plot. In The Coffin Dancer, 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.
With The Coffin Dancer, Deaver - already an internationally best-selling author whose acclaimed novels have been translated into a dozen languages - uses his trademark plot twists to keep this fast-paced, masterly thriller steamrolling along with breathtaking speed. This is gripping suspense of the highest order.

I really don't like cartoonish voices. The book is well written but gets lost in the infantile interpretation of Amelia and Tom who should both be strong characters to balance Rhime. I will not buy any subsequent books with this reader.

Proof on 2 points:

1) neither Audible nor the publisher checks on the quality of audiobook narration or narrators; and,

2) the job requires no experience or qualifications.

I couldn't get past this guy. I agree with the other listener: the guy's narration is cartoonish. I gave up after a few hours of listening to the worst male narrator in 500+ audiobooks I've heard.

If I could find anything positive to say here, I'd say it.
