Rhyme's cousin has been arrested for murder. The evidence clearly shows he did it, but Rhyme agrees to check things out. It turns out that the cousin along with other people has been wrongly convicted because the true killer knows every single detail about the lives of the victims he kills and the men he sets up to take the fall for those crimes. This allows him to get close to the victims under false pretenses, murder or rape, and escape safely. And then he sets up others to take the fall for his crimes, planting incontrovertible evidence! Rhyme, Sachs and the rest of the team have to find out who at the huge, ominous data mining company is getting access to this information. Meanwhile the villain--known only by a number to us--realizes he's being pursued and turns his knowledge of data and information into a weapon. Oh, and lest things seem too delicate, he also gets information through good old-fashioned murder and torture too!

I always await a new Lincoln Rhyme book with anticipation and can't wait to curl up with it . This Lincoln and Amelia book in my opinion was good but slightly disappointing in the tension and build up we have come to expect. . All the characters are there Amelia, Lon, Mel etc.. It centres around the world of computers in a Big Brother way and certainly makes you think about identity theft. . We meet Lincoln's cousin Arthur for the first time who as been arrested for murder and Deaver reveals some of Lincoln's childhood which was interesting. There is also sub plot with Lincoln liasing with London's Metropolitan police Was a good read from Deaver with the usual misdirections but not quite the usual heart stopping page turner.
