The Cold Moon

The Cold Moon

The seventh novel in the bestselling Lincoln Rhyme series sees Rhyme attempt to catch his cleverest opponent yet…

How long does it take to die?
TICK
His victims would say forever …
TOCK

At each meticulously planned scene, the killer leaves his victims to die slowly, a clock counting down their last minutes on earth.
He calls himself the Watchmaker.
And it’s only a matter of time before he strikes again.

But he didn’t count on Lincoln Rhyme. Physically, he may face unimaginable challenges, but mentally, he has no limits. With Amelia Sachs as his eyes and ears – and heart – Rhyme is on the Watchmaker’s trail within seconds.

However, he’s not the only one gifted with a calculating intelligence, and this time, his wits must be sharper than ever if he’s to catch a killer cold as the moon.

Time is ticking for Lincoln Rhyme…

‘Probably the best book he’s written . . . Enough of Deaver’s trademark twists to satisfy his most diehard fans . . . A great read’ – Observer

‘[The plot] is like opening up a Russian doll, and it’s typical of Deaver’s polished, clever entertainment’ – Sunday Telegraph

Reviews

'This is a novel that will chill your blood on the warmest day of any summer holiday. Keep looking over your shoulder...'
<i>Independent on Sunday</i>
'THE COLD MOON has a superscription from William Faulkner, but this is not a book in the 'literary' thriller genre. Deaver is not so much interested in tickling our aesthetic sensibilities as in raising our pulse rates, and he's doing that from the first chapter'
Barry Forshaw, <i>Daily Express</i>
'Bestseller Deaver is on top form here, producing a real spine-tingler with a fabulous twist at the end'
<i>She</i>
'Jeffery Deaver is a master at crafting intricate crimes that are solved through guile, tenacity and sheer creative genius. And Lincoln Rhyme is one of a kind.'
Harlan Coben
