The Steel Kiss

The Steel Kiss

Master of suspense Jeffery Deaver returns with the latest gripping thriller featuring paraplegic forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme.

Technology is everywhere.
It makes our lives easier, our connections faster and journeys quicker.
But in the hands of someone smart enough, every piece of technology can be a murder weapon.

When an escalator gives way mid-chase, Amelia Sachs is forced to let a killer escape as she helps the man trapped in the depths.
Now Sachs and forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme must investigate if the collapse was a freak accident… or whether they are facing a murderer who knows exactly how fatal machines can be.

"Deavotees" will expect and gratefully receive the many twists and sudden turns . . . No one is better at narrative misdirection

The best psychological thriller writer around
The Times
Jeffery Deaver is grand master of the ticking-clock thriller

If you want thrills, Deaver is your man
Guardian
Deaver is a master of manipulation himself; his skillfully constructed plots are devilishly tricky to track and impossible to solve, just the way we like them.
