"Return of Amelia Sachs and Lincoln Rhyme"
Quadriplegic criminologist Lincoln Rhyme has learned over
time that he can still fight crime using his best weapon of
all, his brilliant mind. His able assistant, NYPD officer
Amelia Sachs is more than his helper, she's also his lover
and wants to have a child with him one day.
Their latest case involves a man who smuggles desperate
people out of China for an outrageous fee. This time
something goes wrong with the assignment and the smuggler
known as the Ghost intends to kill the men, women and
children who can identify him. Neither Rhyme nor Sachs
intend to let him get away with that but the Ghost seems to
disappear every time they get close to him.
Once again, Jeffrey Deaver brings back two of his best-
drawn creations in THE STONE MONKEY. Amelia Sachs and
Lincoln Rhyme exemplify dedication, courage and love as
they work together to take down one of their most slippery
opponents. Although the action never stops in this
exhilarating thriller, the author enables the audience to
see the psyches of the characters so that their motivations
are understandable and logical. This all adds up to a
strong reading happening for series fans.
