From the author of The Goodbye Man, discover Jeffery Deaver's chilling series that inspired the film starring Angelina Jolie and Denzel Washington, and is now a major NBC TV series. This is the 10th book in the series.
Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs will do anything to uncover the truth, so they must enter The Kill Room.
A sniper shot from a near-impossible distance. Evidence that the order came from the highest levels of US government. A New York DA who won't let it go.
Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs will risk everything to uncover the truth. But there is no crime scene investigation, no evidence, and no co-operation from the local Bahamian police.
No strangers to controversy, their reputation for seeing what others miss is unparalleled, and ambitious attorney Nance Laurel knows they will risk everything - even their lives - to seek the truth . . .
But first, they must enter The Kill Room.
'THE KILL ROOM is full of his trademark twists, breathless suspense and ironic humour. It is a thriller of 'bits, scraps, observations (and) 180 degree changes in direction' which never cheats the reader, so that the only response can be sighs of satisfaction and admiration' The Evening Standard
In bestseller Deaver's extremely timely 10th Lincoln Rhyme novel (after 2010's The Burning Wire), Rhyme, partner Amelia Sachs, and other regulars conduct a highly irregular investigation that points up the moral ambiguities involved in what are euphemistically called STOs (Special Task Orders). At issue is the killing of a U.S. citizen, Roberto Moreno, who's been operating as an anti-American crusader in the Bahamas. Shreve Metzger, the director of the National Intelligence and Operations Service (NIOS), a secret government organization, ordered the hit from NIOS headquarters in Manhattan. A.D.A. Nance Laurel is determined to prosecute those responsible for Moreno's murder. Rhyme and Sachs engage in a continuously exciting game of cat-and-mouse with a host of adversaries, including sadistic killer Jacob Swann, at the same time they face important personal decisions. This is Deaver at his very best and not to be missed by any thriller fan.
