Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs return to New York City to confront a killer terrorizing couples at their happiest - and most vulnerable.
In the early hours of a quiet weekend morning in Manhattan's Diamond District, a brutal triple murder shocks the city. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs quickly take the case. Curiously, the killer has left behind a half-million dollars' worth of gems at the murder scene, a jewelry store on 47th street. As more crimes follow, it becomes clear that the killer's target is not gems but engaged couples themselves.
The Promisor vows to take the lives of men and women during their most precious moments - midway through the purchase of an engagement ring, after a meeting with a wedding planner, trying on the perfect gown for a day that will never come. The Promisor arrives silently, armed with knife or gun, and a time of bliss is transformed, in an instant, to one of horror.
Soon the Promiser makes a dangerous mistake: leaving behind an innocent witness, Vimal Lahori, a talented young diamond cutter, who can help Rhyme and Sachs blow the lid off the case. They must track down Vimal before the killer can correct his fatal error. Then disaster strikes, threatening to tear apart the very fabric of the city - and providing the perfect cover for the killer to slip through the cracks.

Deaver continues writing First Rate novels!
Once again I am really upset because someone has left a one star rating only hours after this book has been released. There is no review to go along with the rating and that's not fair to either the author, narrator or potential readers.
I've been listening for hours now (I'm about 3 hours from completion) and I personally think this is a wonderful book. It is on par with any and all of the other Lincoln Rhyme books. Jeffrey Deaver has not lost his touch as many long time writers have who ride on past laurels.
And who gives Edoardo Ballerini a one star rating? Ballerini's voice is silk, he's perfect for Deaver's (as well as the Patterson/Karp) books.
The publisher's summary is excellent and if I add anything to it, I would be giving away too much.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book, that's just my personal opinion...
