The seventh novel in the bestselling Lincoln Rhyme series sees Rhyme attempt to catch his cleverest opponent yet...
How long does it take to die?
His victims would say forever ...
At each meticulously planned scene, the killer leaves his victims to die slowly, a clock counting down their last minutes on earth.
He calls himself the Watchmaker.
And it's only a matter of time before he strikes again.
But he didn't count on Lincoln Rhyme. Physically, he may face unimaginable challenges, but mentally, he has no limits. With Amelia Sachs as his eyes and ears - and heart - Rhyme is on the Watchmaker's trail within seconds.
However, he's not the only one gifted with a calculating intelligence, and this time, his wits must be sharper than ever if he's to catch a killer cold as the moon.
Time is ticking for Lincoln Rhyme...

The Cold Moon has a superscription from William Faulkner, but this is not a book in the "literary" thriller genre. Deaver is not so much interested in tickling our aesthetic sensibilities as in raising our pulse rates, and he's doing that from the first chapter * Daily Express *
At first this seems to be simply a superbly orchestrated chase novel . . . But then, as shock follows shock, a complex mystery unfolds, literally overnight. The plot twists are sudden, dazzling and unexpected, and climax in a breathtaking finale. * Scotsman *
A head-spinning, clever cat-and-mouse tale that hurtles along at 100mph . . . Full of twists, turns, bluffs and double bluffs, it's an edge-of-the-seat read from beginning to end. * Sunday Express *
[The plot] is like opening up a Russian doll, and it's typical of Deaver's polished, clever entertainment * Sunday Telegraph *
