The Midnight Lock (Paperback)Jeffery Deaver (author)
The fifteenth page-turning instalment in Jeffrey Deaver’s bestselling Lincoln Rhyme series, The Midnight Lock sets Rhyme and Sachs on the trail of the Locksmith, a dangerous new criminal wreaking havoc in New York.
The "master of ticking-bomb suspense" Jeffery Deaver brings us the latest thriller featuring his most beloved protagonists. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are back - on the hunt for a criminal terrorising New York City.
A woman living alone in Manhattan wakes up to find that items in her apartment have moved during the night. Someone has broken into her flat and, worse than that, there are signs they have stayed to watch her sleep...
Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are asked by City Hall to lead the investigation into this new and dangerous criminal: He calls himself the 'Locksmith', and can break through any lock or security system ever devised.
But their hunt is interrupted when a police investigation uncovers a crucial mistake in one of Rhyme's old cases. Fired as a consultant for the NYPD, he risks jail if the police discover he's still investigating the Locksmith.
Rhyme and his team must work in secret to untangle the web of forensic evidence that stands between the criminal and justice.
