The hero of Jeffery Deaver’s thriller The Bone Collector is Lincoln Rhyme, a forensic scientist known to his peers as „the world’s foremost criminalist“. Rhyme will need all his reason–and his considerable stock of high-tech tools–about him to solve this latest brain-twister: a serial killer with method to his madness. In tried and true thriller fashion, the killer’s crimes are described in lurid detail, as is the astounding technological equipment with which Rhyme examines the evidence–everything from an energy-dispersive x-ray unit to a mass spectrometer.

Three witnesses to a murder could put a millionaire arms dealer behind bars for good. When one of them, the co-owner of Hudson Air, is blown up in a plane bombing with the Dancer’s fingerprints all over it, the FBI takes the other witnesses into protective custody. Only Rhyme can decipher a crime scene, read the residue of a bombing, or identify a handful of dirt well enough to keep up with the killer. Helped by Amelia Sachs, his brilliant and able-bodied assistant, Rhyme traces the Dancer through Manhattan streets, airports, and subways.
Band 2 der Reihe. “Breathtaking. One scare after another and hard to figure out what will come next. I like that the detective is physically challenged which made it different and not as predictable as usual detective stories.” (Leserin) (440 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 452 Seiten noch günstig?
Rhyme travels to North Carolina to undergo an experimental surgical procedure and is, a jot too coincidentally, met at the door by a local sheriff, the cousin of an NYPD colleague, bearing one murder, two kidnappings, and a timely plea for help. It seems that 16-year-old Garrett Hanlon, a bug-obsessed orphan known locally as the Insect Boy, has kidnapped and probably raped two women, and bludgeoned to death a would-be hero who tried to stop one of the abductions.
