The Kill Room
Lincoln Rhyme Book 10
By Jeffery Deaver
Read by Kerry Shale
In what marks Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver's thirtieth suspense novel, brilliant criminalist and quadriplegic Lincoln Rhyme returns in his tenth electrifying adventure.
The tenth novel in the critically acclaimed Lincoln Rhyme series, from Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver.
They are calling it the 'million-dollar bullet': a sniper shot from a near-impossible distance.
But there is no crime scene investigation, no evidence, and no co-operation from the local Bahamian police.
Ambitious New York district attorney Nance Laurel won't let it go. This murder has all the hallmarks of a contract killing, and she has evidence that the order came from the highest levels of the US government.
Putting her career on the line, she calls in independent investigators: Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs. No strangers to controversy, their reputation for seeing what others miss is unparalleled, and she knows they will risk everything - even their lives - to seek the truth . . .
