Book Description

June 30 2004
Grâce à ses facultés exceptionnelles de synesthésie, Imogen Page était la star de l'unité de science cognitive du FBI, jusqu'à ce que la mort de son frère la pousse à démissionner. Elle reprend pourtant du service lorsque le Dr Rosalind Carnow, scientifique de renom, est enlevée par le tueur en série " Loverboy ". Echaudée par un précédent échec, Imogen se jure cette fois de mener l'enquête à sa guise, quoi qu'en pensent la police locale et surtout Benton Arbor, nabab de l'automobile, play-boy bien connu et meilleur ami de Rosalind. Contre toute attente, Imogen trouve en ce dernier un allié précieux, prêt à l'aider à décrypter le message que le sadique a, selon son rituel, transmis aux policiers. Les sévices qu'il compte infliger à Rosalind ne sont que trop clairs, et le temps leur est compté...

Product Description

From Booklist

Legendary FBI agent Imogen Page has a rare condition called synesthesia, in which her brain transmits sights, sounds, and images as flavors. The mingling of her senses makes her acutely aware of patterns and unusually empathic. That's why the bureau barely gives her time to recover from her brother's death before they haul her back on the case of serial killer Loverboy, who sends collages of his future crime scenes to the feds, taunting them to solve the puzzles before he kills again. He's on his fifth collage. His victim is the reputed paramour of automobile mogul Robert Benton, a take-charge executive who puts his vast resources at Imogen's disposal. She is well aware of what awaits the sadistic Loverboy's victim, and she methodically attempts to piece together the clues laid out in the collage before time runs out. Although the plot strains credulity and Imogen's special gift never lives up to its intriguing promise, this novel offers some fascinating secondary characters, plenty of sprightly sexual banter, a few really bad knock-knock jokes, and plot twists aplenty.

This book is a really intense mystery that kept me guessing the whole time I was reading. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes reading an interesting story that holds their attention. Jaffe is a great author, who knows when to keep things serious, and when to add some humor.
