Amazon.co.uk Review The hero of Jeffery Deavers thriller The Bone Collector is Lincoln Rhyme, a forensic scientist known to his peers as "the worlds foremost criminalist". Rhyme will need all his reason--and his considerable stock of high-tech tools--about him to solve this latest brain-twister: a serial killer with method to his madness. In tried and true thriller fashion, the killers crimes are described in lurid detail, as is the astounding technological equipment with which Rhyme examines the evidence--everything from an energy-dispersive x-ray unit to a mass spectrometer.
Every fictional detective has his or her gimmick, from Sherlock Holmess violin to Nero Wolfs orchids, and Rhyme is no exception. He is a quadriplegic who can move nothing but a single finger. Gadget-philes will be in seventh heaven reading about Lincoln Rhymes tools; other readers might feel the book could do with a few more plausible characters and a little less technology. --Amazon.com
