The Burial Hour

The Burial Hour



‘If you want thrills, Deaver is your man’ Guardian

Number one bestselling author and master of suspense Jeffery Deaver returns with the thirteenth Lincoln Rhyme thriller, which sees a crime go global…

When a man is snatched from a New York street in broad daylight, the only clue is a miniature noose left on the pavement.

By the time criminal forensic scientist Lincoln Rhyme is involved, a video of the missing man is already online, his dying breaths set to a grisly music by someone calling himself The Composer.

Rhyme and fellow investigator Amelia Sachs must follow The Composer across the globe as he continues his horrifying creation, kidnapping further victims to add their last breaths to his piece.

But with Rhyme and Sachs in a whole new world with its own rules, how can they possibly guess what danger they’re in when the music finally stops?

‘One of the most consistent writers of clever, entertaining and often thought-provoking thrillers in the world’ Simon Kernick

‘The best psychological thriller writer around’ The Times

‘Deaver is a master of plot twists, and they are abundant in this story…essential for fans of the franchise’ Daily Mail
