Master of suspense Jeffery Deaver returns with the latest gripping thriller featuring paraplegic forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme.
Amelia Sachs is hot on the trail of a killer. She's chasing him through a department store in Brooklyn when suddenly the escalator malfunctions. The stairs give way, and several people are trapped, with one man horribly mangled by the gears. Sachs is forced to let her quarry escape as she jumps in to try to help save the victims.
But was this a random freak accident? Is the killer's presence in the store just before the disaster a simple coincidence, or is there a deeper connection? And how will they catch the killer - now that Lincoln Rhyme has retired?
