Unlocking a cold case with explosive implications for the future of civil rights, forensics expert Lincoln Rhyme and his protege, Amelia Sachs, must outguess a killer who has targeted a high school girl from Harlem who is digging into the past of one of her ancestors, a former slave. What buried secrets from 140 years ago could have an assassin out for innocent blood? And what chilling message is hidden in his calling card, the hanged man of the tarot deck?
A good thriller with more than its fair share of twists and turns. Jeffery Deaver always puts in one or two more twists than you are expecting, keeping you going in the wrong direction until he lets you see whats happening. With the main characters having been finely tuned over the last few books, this novel feels more like reading about old friends than characters in a book.
Looking forward to the next one.
