Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Mantegna applies his considerable talent to this latest Lincoln Rhymes mystery. Deaver's quadriplegic detective, Rhymes and his partner, Det. Amelia Sachs, attempt to stop a sadistic serial killer known as the Watchmaker, so named because he leaves specially constructed clocks at the site of each of his murders. However, as so often happens in Deaver's stories, not everything is even close to what it seems. Mantegna gives a smooth, no frills performance. He keeps the vocal deviations for each character to a minimum, concentrating instead on making their dialogue natural and realistic. His low-key delivery works especially well when describing the point of view of the Watchmaker or when delving into the inner thoughts of the killer's sexually deviant accomplice. The scenes between the two villains as they calmly discuss the fates of their intended victims, both before and after death, are genuinely chilling in their execution. Deaver fans will be pleased to have Rhymes and Sachs back in a new intricate and compelling thriller, with Mantegna once again serving as an excellent narrator.

From Booklist

Lincoln Rhyme, the quadriplegic criminalist, returns for a new round of crime busting. Rhyme, who has starred in a handful of very good novels, is one of the mystery genre's most interesting and out-of-the-ordinary series leads, a brilliant investigator who rarely leaves his specially equipped home. He's partnered (personally and professionally) with Amelia Sachs, a former fashion model and first-rate detective. Here, while assisting Rhyme in tracking down a sadistic serial killer who calls himself the Watchmaker, Sachs is also running her own murder investigation, her first as lead detective. Fans of the series will welcome the chance to see Sachs spread her wings, and spending time with the likably crusty Rhyme is always a delight. As always, Deaver's dialogue is exceptionally realistic, and his plotting is devilishly intricate. Recommended for fans of the Rhyme novels (naturally) and readers who like their thrillers laced with wit and sharp characterizations. David Pitt

Big Brother is watching in this Brave New World look at the industry of data mining. It is more than a little bit scary or at least disconcerting to see just how much information can be gathered about an individual. This insightful examination supersedes the actual story line, where LIncoln and Amanda once again use detailed forensics to prevail. Very much wroth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The darkest book in the Lincoln Rhyme series to date Dec 30 2008
By Schtinky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Brand new Detective third-grade Amelia Sachs has been assigned her first solo case; looking into the suicide/suspected homicide of a man named Creeley. She uncovers another homicide among precinct 118, and ties the two together. During her investigations she discovers many of the 118 hang out at a bar called The St. James, and even worse, suspects a ring of bribes and extortion involving officers from 118. Interviewing retired cop Art Snyder, Sachs is devastated by the news that her deceased father, also a cop, was on the take just like the guys at 118. Sachs worships her father, and the news cuts her to the bone; horrible enough to cause her to consider quitting the force and going into private security.

Meanwhile, Sachs is also assisting Lincoln Rhyme in his new case he calls "The Watchmaker". Two brutal murders, each with a strange clock left at the scenes, the clocks having a mechanism that track the lunar cycles. It's a full moon, and The Watchmaker has a taste for his work. Returning from book six (The Twelfth Card) is young officer Ron Pulaski. Despite his severe head injury in the past, causing him occasional dizziness and PTSD symptoms, Ron fights on to be the best cop he can be. According to Amelia Sachs, Ron has "guts", and she's happy to have him working with her on the Creeley case, and assisting Rhyme with The Watchmaker.

Gerald Duncan - The Watchmaker - likes leaving calling cards behind on his scenes, but is careful to leave very little forensic evidence. He knows he's being tracked by the best, but knows that only he can outsmart the famous Lincoln Rhyme. With him is his assistant Vincent Reynolds. Vincent doesn't have much going on upstairs; he refers to himself in different titles such as Big Vincent, Clever Vincent, Hungry Vincent, etc. His real appetite, however, is rape. He's struck a deal to help The Watchmaker kill people as long as he can have the women afterward. In exchange, he shows The Watchmaker around town.

There's three new characters added to the cast. Thom's (Lincoln's assistant) elderly aunt passed away and left Thom with her Havanese dog Jackson. Lt. Dennis Baker is assisting Rhyme on his Watchmaker case, adding a little pull to Rhyme's sometimes unusual requests. Kathryn Dance is in town, from the California Bureau Of Investigations. Her specialty is interrogation and Kinesics - she "reads" people during interviews and confessions, and can accurately tell when they are lying. (Jeffrey Deaver has since written a book called The Sleeping Doll which stars Kathryn Dance, should you find yourself as intrigued by her character as I did)

Things are not always what they seem, and people are often enigmas; 'The Cold Moon' has more twists and turns than a winding highway. Just when you think you've got a character or scenario figured out, Deaver shocks you by morphing into someone or something else. And this time, he has a surprise for you at the ending. If you're a fan of Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme character like I am, your going to love this 7th book in the series. Pop some popcorn and get ready to settle down for a long read, you won't be able to put the book down. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

At times toward the end it got confusing as to who was guilty and who wasn't, but by paying close attention to the story, it was a very interesting book that held your interest. Have read quite a few of his books and have totally enjoyed all I have read. I plan to read more of his books, he's a writer that holds your interest.

2.0 out of 5 stars Less Detail And More Action Might Have Made The Cold Moon More Readable! Sept. 20 2008
By bobbewig - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have been a huge fan of Deaver's books since The Bone Collector. However, despite repeated efforts to get into The Cold Moon, I had to give up on it after only a third of the way through. For as long as I was able to stay with The Cold Moon, I found, atypical of Deaver's other Lincoln Rhyme books, the bad guys to be one-dimensional and uninteresting, the plot to be slow-moving and filled with excessive detail about the "science" involved in the investigation, there was too little action and the action that did occur was somewhat unbelievable and convoluted, and that Deaver provided nothing new in terms of developing the relationship between Lincoln Rhyme and Amanda Sachs. Perhaps if I had the patience to continue reading The Cold Moon my opinion would have been different; but after reading many of the other Amazon reader reviews, I didn't hold out much hope. Thus, given that I have so many books and so little time to read them, I decided to put The Cold Moon aside and move on to my next book. I'm still a Deaver fan and will read his next book -- but for the first time, I have been disappointed in a Lincoln Rhyme mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fasten Your Seatbelt - Twists and Turns Ahead July 22 2006
By John R. Linnell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is difficult to talk too much about the story here without giving things away. Suffice it to say that there are two seperate stories here with respect to The Watchmaker.

The first of them is full of delicious twists and turns, feints and forays and seems to end rather deliciously. The second is harder to believe except one by now is conditioned to believe that nothing which is obvious and apparent is. Even at the very end of the book when the writer is wrapping up a personal aspect of Amelia Sachs life, one is waiting for The Watchmaker to reappear. I am sure he will in another novel.

I have read all of Deaver's novels and I have often said I would not want to have his nightmares. This one is not nightmare iducing. It is pure Deaver however and that alone is usually good enough for most people.
