Publisher's Summary

December. The night of the full, cold moon. A young man is found dead in lower Manhattan, the first in a series of victims of a man calling himself the Watchmaker. This killer's obsession with time drives him to plan the murders with eerie precision. Lincoln Rhyme, Amelia Sachs and the rest of their crew are brought in to handle the case and stop the Watchmaker. But the investigation sets into motion clockwork gears of its own, with consequences for people and events that will endanger not only many lives, but Lincoln's and Amelia's future together.

Classic Deaver

This book is another classic Lincoln Rhyme tale by Deaver with all his trademark twists and turns. Also augmented by the brilliant characterizations and passion of the narrator. Well worth the download!

Gripping, Deaver at his best!

As a Deaver fan I listened with some anticipation. The book was gripping. There are so many twists and turns in the story that it is hard to turn it off. About 2 hours from the end I began to lose faith and thought that the complex twists in the plot were unnecessary. I was wrong, almost as I thought this it all became clear! I then thoroughly enjoyed the book right up to the end. I Can't wait for the next book!!

Satisfyingly complex

I read a lot of mystery stories and sometimes they can get a bit predictable. Not this one- some seriously good twists and a marvellous sense of satisfaction when everything comes together at the end. Well suited to the slower pace of an audiobook, and well presented by the narrator.
