Publisher's Summary

A killer flees the scene of a homicide at a prestigious Manhattan music school and locks himself in a classroom. Within minutes the police have him surrounded. Then a scream rings out, followed by a gunshot. The police break down the door. The room is empty.

Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are brought in to investigate. For the ambitious Sachs, solving the case could earn her a promotion. For the quadriplegic Rhyme, it means relying on his protégé to ferret out a master illusionist they've dubbed 'the conjurer', who baits them with murders that become more diabolical with each crime.

As the fatalities rise and the minutes tick down, the pair must move beyond the smoke and mirrors to prevent a terrifying act of vengeance that could become the greatest vanishing act of all.

One of Deavers' Best

I believe this would be my third or fourth time with this story, I've read it in the past and decided the audio version would be fun. This particular book is my favourite in Deavers series for Lincoln Rhyme as it strays from the typical "clinical" feel of forensics that Deaver is known for to focus more on plot twists and character detail. The story involving illusion, creates an issue for the characters who are all about interpreting what they see, and when magics involved how much of what you see can you really believe? Absolutely a must read for anyone who loves a good thriller, even if typically crime thrillers aren't your thing this one will leave you amazed.

Very twisty plot

Jeff Harding knows no equal he makes every book amazing! This story was quite complex and had a very twisty plot based upon magic sleight of hand so, at times tricky to keep up.

Terrible

The first half of the book was okay. Unfortunately the 2nd half was dreadful. I enjoyed the first 3 Jeffery Deaver books with Rhythm but they just got worse. Always last second save. Characters just becoming more annoying a Amelia’s character is just unbelievable, made out to be the ultimate policewoman. Last book I will be reading in this series

A masterclass in plot manipulation

This story has a twist at every turn, a masterful plot that keeps you guessing until the last page. Just when you think you’ve got it, Mr Deaver skilfully turns the tables to one devious twist after another. A most enjoyable read.
