December. The night of the full, cold moon. A young man is found dead in lower Manhattan, the first in a series of victims of a man calling himself the Watchmaker. This killer's obsession with time drives him to plan the murders with eerie precision. Lincoln Rhyme, Amelia Sachs and the rest of their crew are brought in to handle the case and stop the Watchmaker. But the investigation sets into motion clockwork gears of its own, with consequences for people and events that will endanger not only many lives, but Lincoln's and Amelia's future together.
The Cold Moon
A series of brutal, apparently unrelated murders....the killer showing no mercy, killing slowly and with a terrible precision. The self-styled 'Watchmaker' leaves a clock at each crime scene..what does this mean? Lincoln Rhyme, the brilliant paraplegic investigator, is forced to investigate without the full attention of his eyes and ears, Amelia Sachs, who is tied up as lead investigator on another case of murder, which leads into tangled webs of police corruption. The Watchmaker is very clever, but is Rhyme better? Can he catch him before any more lives are lost? You will enjoy finding out...a brilliant listen.
