Book Review – The Cold Moon By Jeffrey Deaver


Synopsis : Lincoln Rhyme returns in The Cold Moon, a roller coaster of a thriller that pits Lincoln and Amelia Sachs against time itself.

On a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering in the black skies over New York City, two people are brutally murdered—their prolonged deaths marked by eerie calling-cards: moon-faced clocks ticking away the victims’ last minutes on earth. More murders are planned, and Rhyme and his team have only hours to stop the icy-cold, brilliant Watchmaker, whose obsession with time drives him to plan his carnage with the precision of a fine timepiece. While the cat-and-mouse search for the killer proceeds, Amelia Sachs must balance her efforts to catch the Watchmaker with her job as lead detective on the first homicide case of her own, in which she unearths shocking revelations from the past that threaten to undermine her very relationship with Lincoln Rhyme.

I am now officially a fan of Mr Deaver! Wow! what a story, with the wonderful twist and turns as the plot thickens is nothing short of amazing.  Of course all great Authors would have a great team behind him….but the fact remains that he truly is a mastermind!  Thank goodness he is on the right side of the law *chuckles* What I love about his books other than the amazing thrills and spins is that you can learn something from them, for instance in this one he talks about the use of Kinesics to help solve some unanswered questions.  There are also a few other gems in it but I’ll leave you to discover them on your own.

  1. If you Read “The Bone Collector”, “The Vanished Man”, you would surely become fan of Jeffery Deaver. He is a master of illusion.
