What did you like about this audiobook?
This book is so well written, it's right up there with The Bone Collector and The Cold Moon which are my two favorite Rhyme books. This book brings the shadow of the Bone Collector back and actual conflict between Rhyme and the Watch Maker which is outstanding. The end if this book is one heck of a cliffhanger setting the listener up for the next in the series which I'm sure will be just as good.
Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?
Oh yes. Deaver leaves clues all over the place but they are so randomly placed and innocuous that you don't realize they are even clues until Rhyme unearths and points them out as clues. The story is told in a very methodical well thought out way, very complex but none the less easy to follow.
What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?
Nothing at all wrong with Edoardo Ballerini's performance. I thought he did a great job. Good inflections and character changes with out over dramatizing.
Do you have any additional comments?
I highly recommend this book. Of all of Jeffrey Deaver's books this one rates right at the top!

With "The Skin Collector" I believe Deaver has "jumped the shark"!!! This book was actually boring. A rehash of an earlier book with different characters. I kept waiting for the Deaver magic to happen, plodding thru page after page; wanting to give up but forcing myself to continue only to regret not abandoning the book. The earlier works of Deaver held you page after page, waiting for the next twist. This book proves to me the author has lost his magic. Can't recommend, a "formulaic" boring story...
