Overview

The Vanished Man (Lincoln Rhyme Series #5) by Jeffery Deaver

The New York Times bestselling author of The Skin Collector delivers a brilliant thriller that pits forensic criminologist Lincoln Rhyme and his partner, Amelia Sachs, against an unstoppable killer with one final, horrific trick up his sleeve.

The Los Angeles Times calls his novels "thrill rides between covers." The New York Times hails them as "dazzling," and The Times of London crowns him "the best psychological thriller writer around." Now Jeffery Deaver, America's "master of ticking-bomb suspense" (People) delivers his most electrifying novel yet.

It begins at a prestigious music school in New York City. A killer flees the scene of a homicide and locks himself in a classroom. Within minutes, the police have him surrounded. When a scream rings out, followed by a gunshot, they break down the door. The room is empty.

Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are brought in to help with the high-profile investigation. For the ambitious Sachs, solving the case could earn her a promotion. For the quadriplegic Rhyme, it means relying on his protégée to ferret out a master illusionist they've dubbed "the conjurer," who baits them with gruesome murders that become more diabolical with each fresh crime. As the fatalities rise and the minutes tick down, Rhyme and Sachs must move beyond the smoke and mirrors to prevent a terrifying act of vengeance that could become the greatest vanishing act of all.

Hey, Mr Deaver- the gang from Scooby Doo called, and they want their ending back! (P.S. Please leave the Mystery Machine with a full tank, thanks!)

If you are a Jeff Deaver fan, don't let this one get away. I read this years ago, then when I bought an ebook reader, this was the first book I downloaded.

Like all of the Deaver books the plot is complex and there are many surprises. Alas, the plot kinks don't seem to have adequate foundation making them and the dialog a bit forced. Somehow this book misses the immediacy and drama of some of his other works.

I am always surprised with the twists and turns that Jeffery Deaver thows at us in his novels. This story explores the dark side of human nature that can take hold of people as they come to grips with tragedies from their past. It also delves into how people use their skills for either good or evil to reach the end of their quest. This story is "magic". Rhyme and Sachs seem to always be able to find experts in the case to help them along to find the bad guy. I like how Deaver weaves the outsider's story into the overall picture of the novel so that we can see what drives the character. When I started reading the Rhyme series a friend of mine said that "Jeffery Deaver is WEIRD". I am so glad because that weirdness makes for fantastic reading.

This is my favorite Lincoln Rhyme novel by Jeffery Deaver. "The Conjurer" is the name Rhyme gives to the magician and mentalist who keeps him stymied almost throughout the entire book. Deaver will keep your mind twisting and turning until the very end. I finally got my book club to read a Deaver novel and this is the one I chose. 12 people read the book, 10 really enjoyed it, (the other two don't enjoy this type of writing.) Two have requested I share my other Deaver novels with them, one saying she has a new favorite author! I strongly suggest this one as your first Lincoln Rhyme novel. You will want more!! Enjoy!

If you liked the others, you'll like this. If you haven't read the others, this can still stand alone. But, you would enjoy all of them.
