In the latest Lincoln Rhyme mystery, a deadly duo working under the moniker of the "Watchmaker" systematically does away with victims, leaving behind a ticking clock. Joe Mantegna adds some shading and darkness to his familiar tough-guy voice and manages to maintain the momentum throughout this police procedural whose unique protagonist is a quadriplegic NYPD detective. There will be no disappointments for Deaver fans, who will find some new twists--fissures in Lincoln Rhyme's relationship with ladylove Amelia Sachs, a forensics expert, and the dual murder story lines. Those not accustomed to the gruesome details of a Deaver plot should consider themselves forewarned. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
