I liked the movie when I first saw it, so I thought I would try reading the book. Sorry for whoever the screen writer for the film was, but you completely destroyed an awesome book!!!! There was a lot more character development and details that were omitted from the film. The book was far superior!!!! Loved it!!

Book 1, in the Lincoln Rhyme series

Written in 1997 this novel introduces Lincoln Rhyme, a quadriplegic forensic criminalist as its main protagonist with Amelia Sachs, a 31 year old police officer, as its main character, along with them it showcases strong secondary characters in Lon Sellito, a homicide detective working for the NYPD and Thom, Lincoln Rhymes’ full-time care assistant. The movie adaptation starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie was made in 1999. To this day, this series is a success and still strong in the ratings.

In “The Bone Collector”, the plot depicts a frantic race to save lives and catch a killer , it has a generous hunk of CSI style forensics investigation, is action packed with a multitude of wild chases, some fascinating disclosures and a few gruesome scenes and the pages are filled with Interesting and colourful characters. We have drama and suspense everywhere and there isn't much down time for a breather.

Rhymes is a high-level quad, a man trap in a broken body with a sole falcon living on his windowsill as company and it quickly becomes apparent that he is a bitter, angry and aggressive, he is strongly considering suicide. When his loneliness is interrupted by his former colleague who needs help in an ongoing crime investigation his interest eventually peaks at the highest level, just what was needed for Rhymes set aside the decision of suicide. Assisted by the beautiful Amelia Sachs they track down a killer whose ingenious clues hold secret to saving his victims. There is a lot going on I will abstain to divulge in order to tease you….

This is quite a captivating story an absolute page turner …... “The Coffin Dancer” is the next to follow the Lincoln and Amelia saga and I surely will add it on my TBR list.

Too many books …too little time but never too late to read a good story.

This was the first novel featuring Lincoln Rhymes and Amanda Sachs. It is not as complicated as later plots, but enough to keep you turning the page. It is not followed exactly, in the movie, but I liked them both. I've always wondered why no one turned this couple into a TV series.

This book is suspenseful and full of plot twists. The forensics make it very interesting, and it is much better than the movie. Buy this, and all of Deaver's other works, too.

I like the story structure most. There are Killer¡¦s monologues and Lincoln Rhyme¡¦s deduction. It excites me to chase every wording and chapter by chapter. Sachs¡¦ adventures in venue are so attractive. I am interested in crime science now. Lincoln Rhyme¡¦s tragedy begins when he becomes paralyzed. Luckily, Amelia Sachs brings him back from despair. The bone collector loses his family accidentally and then embeds ¡¥revenge¡¦ in his entire mind. Bringing Rhyme to death becomes his aspiration. This novel surprises me page by page. After reading, I realize that meaning of life is contributing our talents to society, even our lives are coming to an end. Let¡¦s enter the world of crime science.

absolutely terrific. Even though I had seen the movie before I read the book there was still plenty more to the story. I wish I had read the book first, but it is still a must read for mystery/thriller lovers.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the ending different in the movie? (I haven't seen the film in a while, but while reading the book I thought "the bone collector" was someone other than the person it turned out to be.)
