Publisher's Summary

From Jeffery Deaver's "simply outstanding" (San Jose Mercury News) Lincoln Rhyme series comes this acclaimed New York Times best-seller!
Forensics expert Lincoln Rhyme is called in to work the high-profile investigation of a killer who seemingly disappeared into thin air just as the NYPD closed in. As the homicidal illusionist baits him with grisly murders that grow more diabolical with each victim, Rhyme and his protégée, Amelia Sachs, must go behind the smoke and mirrors to prevent a horrific act of vengeance that could become the greatest vanishing act of all....

The Best

Would you consider the audio edition of The Vanished Man to be better than the print version?

I only listen to audio books so I wouldn't know.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They are all my favorite characters. It's the cast of characters that make the novels so interesting, many of them are regulars.

Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to him before. I was just happy that he didn't annoy me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it was. It was a terrific book and I didn't want it to end.

Any additional comments?

This is Jeffrey Deaver at his best with an excellent narrator. There are so many turns and twists that you can't figure out and don't see coming that I began to wonder how Jeffrey Deaver could even have such a complex imagination. I'm sorry that his series isn't narrated all by the same person. I don't like going from one narrator to another when I'm listening to a series.

Magician theme and best in series

This book did an excellent job of working in the theme of a master magician and his need for revenge. There are plenty plot twists and the pace is always fast. The narration is excellent. Its mostly plausible, but at some point you say it is way too complicated a scheme based on what the villain's objective is. It reminded me a little of the Silence of the Lambs where "bad guy" is quite adept at escaping from incarceration. He is a magician and a student of Houdini who made a living escaping from handcuffs, prisons and locked trunks.

My only complaint is that there is too many "plot twists" and book could have ended 30 pages earlier.
