About the book
The tenth novel in the critically acclaimed Lincoln Rhyme series, from Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver.

Robert Moreno, an American citizen living in South America, is shot in the Bahamas by a sniper. The killing was commissioned by the U.S. government, who received a tip-off that Moreno was planning a terrorist attack on a U.S. oil company headquarters. But this intelligence was fatally incorrect: anti-American Moreno ordered a protest at the oil company, not an attack.

Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are drafted in to investigate. While Sachs traces Moreno's steps in New York, Rhyme travels to the scene of the crime in Nassau, where he finds himself on a dangerous path trailed by the sniper himself. As details of the case start to emerge, the pair discover that not all is what it seemed. Can they achieve justice and escape with their lives intact?>

Read Review   Want to write a review?
Deaver is a master of misdirection and the plot will keep you guessing to the end. A powerful read indeed.
With 26 novels to his name Deaver is an old hand at delivering the goods . . . he still does it better than most, whacking his readers with a neat one-two plot twist as they enter the final straight.
The art of writing blockbuster thrillers is not easily mastered but Deaver has it at his fingertips. One of his specialities is the out-of-left-field revelation and THE BURNING WIRE is brimming with them.
Brilliant . . . it's easy to get swept up in the sheer velocity of the action
Ingenious plotting is combined with ample helpings of information, about both New York's infrastructure and the hero's disability
Jeffery Deaver is something of a summer tradition for thriller fans, and a Lincoln Rhyme novel makes for a bumper year . . . Deaver's pacy prose is addictive enough to result in dreadful sunburn if read on the beach, so approach with caution
Deaver can be relied on to deliver high tension - in this case it comes in every sense of the expression.
Praise for THE BURNING WIRE>
