Although confined to a wheelchair, Detective Lincoln Rhyme's phenomenal success in solving crime has earned him a formidable reputation. Just for once, he's not on a job. Lincoln is visiting North Carolina to try out a breakthrough in surgery which might be the first step towards a cure for his condition. However, fame is not without drawbacks. Locally, a youth's been killed, and two girls are missing, said to have been abducted by the murderer.

This is probably one of my favourite Deaver books and the narrator did it justice. I’m sure I’ll listen again.

New York City is thrown into chaos by the assaults of the Bone Collector, a serial kidnapper and killer who gives the police a chance to save his victims from death by leaving obscure clues. The cops go to Lincoln Rhyme, an ex-NYPD forensics expert left paralysed after an accident on the job. Rhyme reluctantly postpones his ambitions towards suicide and puts together a forensic investigation team, enlisting as his eyes and ears young police officer Amelia Sachs.

I found the accents jarring but otherwise the performance was great and the story is one I keep coming back to.
