The Kill Room
In Deaver's 10th novel in his Lincoln Rhyme series (after The Burning Wire, 2010), a sniper shot kills a man from over a mile away. The bullet's victim was anti-American crusader Roberto Moreno, a United States citizen targeted by the United States government and assassinated in the Bahamas. Lincoln Rhyme, the country's most renowned investigator and forensics expert, is called upon to investigate. While his partner, Amelia Sachs, traces the victim's steps in Manhattan, Rhyme leaves the city to pursue the sniper himself. As details of the case start to emerge, a deadly assassin is determined to systematically eliminate the evidence, turning Lincoln's investigation into a chilling battle of wits against a cold-blooded killer.
