- Publisher out of stock
Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs will do anything to uncover the truth, so they must enter The Kill Room.
'THE KILL ROOM is full of his trademark twists, breathless suspense and ironic humour. It is a thriller of 'bits, scraps, observations (and) 180 degree changes in direction' which never cheats the reader, so that the only response can be sighs of satisfaction and admiration.' - The Evening Standard
A sniper shot from a near-impossible distance. Evidence that the order came from the highest levels of US government. A New York DA who won't let it go.
Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs will risk everything to uncover the truth. But there is no crime scene investigation, no evidence, and no co-operation from the local Bahamian police.
No strangers to controversy, their reputation for seeing what others miss is unparalleled, and ambitious attorney Nance Laurel knows they will risk everything - even their lives - to seek the truth . . .
But first, they must enter The Kill Room.

There's no danger of this 10th Lincoln Rhyme outing collecting anything but enthusiastic praise . . . This is Deaver back on his most comfortable territory and the battle with a ruthless killer is delivered with the accumulating menace that has long been Deaver's trademark. Rhyme and Amelisa remain one of the most distinctive duos in crime fiction and Deaver is somehow able to come up with something fresh and unusual for them, even though familiar elements are utilised. What the author is particularly good at is the tense set-piece, as in the police siege at the end of THE KILL ROOM, delivered with panache. As ever he plays fair with the reader. We're given all the relevant information but are nevertheless still jolted by the successive revelations. * Daily Express *
If you want the best crime, try Jeff Deaver -- Claudia Winkleman * BBC Radio 2 Arts Show *
Deaver might well be expected to rest on his laurels at this point in his career, but his 30th novel is refreshingly ambitious, as his labyrinthine twists lead the reader ever further into a fog of ambiguity about misdirected patriotism, drone warfare, whistle-blowing and free speech * The Irish Times *
An exciting and thoughtful examination of how far government can go . . . Deaver doesn't disappoint. Against a grave and complex legal backstory, he unwinds an elaborate narrative with believable, intriguing characters and fascinating CSI-like investigative aplomb . . . compelling and provocative * Shelf Awareness *
Without doubt my favourite US crime writer -- Alex Heminsley * BBC Radio 2 Arts Show *
THE KILL ROOM is full of his trademark twists, breathless suspense and ironic humour. It is a thriller of 'bits, scraps, observations (and) 180 degree changes in direction' which never cheats the reader, so that the only response can be sighs of satisfaction and admiration. * Evening Standard *
It's a typically fast-paced ride * Choice *
