Publisher's Summary

A famed criminologist, paralyzed from the neck down, Lincoln Rhyme compensates for his physical disability with his brains - and the arms and legs of his brilliant and beautiful protege, Amelia Sachs. The awe-inspiring duo returns in The Stone Monkey. Recruited to help the FBI and the Immigration and Naturalization Service perform the nearly impossible, Lincoln and Amelia track down a cargo ship headed for New York City carrying two dozen illegal Chinese immigrants, as well as the notorious human smuggler and killer known as "the Ghost". But when the Ghost's capture goes disastrously wrong, Lincoln and Amelia find themselves in a race against time. They must stop him before he can track down and murder the two surviving families who have escaped from the ship and vanished deep into the labyrinthine world of New York City's Chinatown.
Over the next harrowing 48 hours, the Ghost ruthlessly hunts for the families, while Rhyme struggles to find them before they die. Amelia pursues a very different kind of police work: forming a connection with one of the immigrants that may have consequences going to the core of her relationship with her partner and lover, Lincoln Rhyme.
The Stone Monkey abounds with Deaver's famous trademarks: wholly unexpected plot twists and breakneck pacing, reminding us once again of why People hailed him as the "master of ticking-bomb suspense" and Publishers Weekly called him the "most clever plotter on the planet".

STONE MONKEY

Stone Monkey is one of the best books I have heard in a while. The story is fast paced but through with details. The characters are well defined and the narrator brings each of them to life with different voices. I listened to the whole book at one time because I just couldn't put it down.
