"A businessman snatched from an Upper East Side street in broad daylight. A miniature hangman's noose left at the scene. A nine-year-old girl, the only witness to the crime. With a crime scene this puzzling, forensic expertise of the highest order is absolutely essential. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are called in to investigate. Soon the case takes a stranger turn: a recording surfaces of the victim being slowly hanged, his desperate gasps the backdrop to an eerie piece of music. The video is marked as the work of The Composer ... Despite their best efforts, the suspect gets away. So when a similar kidnapping occurs on a dusty road outside Naples, Italy, Rhyme and Sachs don't hesitate to rejoin the hunt. But the search is now a complex case of international cooperation--and not all those involved may be who they seem. Sachs and Rhyme find themselves playing a dangerous game, with lives all across the globe hanging in the balance"-- Provided by publisher.

This book was a slog. One of the worst in the series. Deaver's writing is never great -- his dialogue is stilted and the characters are one dimensional. I usually enjoy them, though, for the interesting forensics and intricate plots. This plot was just silly. The book really drags and could be at least 100 pages shorter. I had to force myself to finish it, and ended up skimming about the last third of the book.

A Lincoln Rhyme mystery in which Rhyme is not the center of the story—but rather his fiancé, Amelia, as she takes center stage to solve a murder mystery in Italy.

Very disappointing for Jeffery Deaver book. Two cases meandering and dragging out the book; they were supposed to intersect at the end but the first, major plot became pitiful and the second was stupid. The end result was such a boring book that I had to scan the last third. If you skip this book and just expect Lincoln Rhyme to become involved in future international intrigue, your reading time will be put to better use.
