Publisher Description

In his classic thriller The Bone Collector, Jeffery Deaver introduced readers to Lincoln Rhyme-the nation's most renowned investigator and forensic detective.

Now, a new killer is on the loose: a criminal inspired by the Bone Collector. And Rhyme must untangle the twisted web of clues before the killer targets more victims-or Rhyme himself.

The killer's methods are terrifying. He stalks the basements and underground passageways of New York City. He tattoos his victims' flesh with cryptic messages, using a tattoo gun loaded with poison, resulting in an agonizing, painful death.

When a connection is made to the Bone Collector-the serial killer who terrorized New York more than a decade ago-Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are immediately drawn into the case.

Rhyme, Sachs, and the NYPD must race against time to answer the many questions the investigation uncovers: Whom will the killer attack next? What is the message behind the victims' tattoos? Does the killer's own inking--a fanged centipede sporting a woman's face--hold any significance? And what is his ultimate mission?

As time runs out, Rhyme discovers that the past has returned to haunt him in the most troubling way imaginable...

The Skin Collector

Another puzzling mystery to solve! Very much a great read because of suspense and intrigue. I also learned much about the art of tattooing.

Entertaining and Prophetic

great read as usual by Mr Deaver. Fascinating insight as to what Radical Right Wing nutjobs are capable of. Excellent read.

The Skin Collector

The first half is excellent, while the last....not so much. Too much suspension of disbelief is asked for, while the author engages in explanation after explanation of how things were uncovered & crimes solved. The ending left me cold....but clearly opens the door for yet another sequel.
