But when the capture goes disastrously wrong, Lincoln and Amelia find themselves in a race to stop the Ghost before he can track down and murder the two surviving families who have vanished deep into the labyrinthine world of New York City's Chinese community. Over the next forty-eight hours the Ghost ruthlessly hunts for the families while Rhyme, aided by a policeman from mainland China, struggles to find them before they die and Sachs pursues a very different kind of policework - 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.Hide synopsis

"The Stone Monkey" is a Deaver Lincoln Rhyme formula. The main characters are flat, as usual. Sachs really may as well be a man. It seems Deaver only finds women admirable if they have male hobbies and attitudes. They still have to look great, though. The villain is the most interesting -- better than usual -- but women are nothing but despised sex objects to him too. I realize he is Chinese and the culture is very patriarchal but it was still disgusting. I doubt Deaver realizes that women are his largest audience. Rampant sexism typical of Deaver's books aside, I found this book better than most of the later Rhyme books. The plot has an unusual millieu and is never dull. The book is hard to put down.
