Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are confronted by the possibility of an eco-terrorist targeting their city. The use of electricity as a weapon is both frightening and plausible. In addition to the terrorist, the infamous Watchmaker is spotted in Mexico and Rhyme is collaborating with the Mexican police to finally capture him.
The detailed explanations on how electricity is used as a weapon were sobering. We are surrounded by electricity and metal a com
bination that can lead to some dire circumstances.
Deaver spends time cataloging the characteristics of his players. Lincoln’s insecurities, Ron’s fear of irreparable damage to his brain, Amelia’s arthritis are all shown to humanize the characters and provide a target for empathy.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
