From Publishers Weekly
Mantegna applies his considerable talent to this latest Lincoln Rhymes mystery. Deaver's quadriplegic detective, Rhymes and his partner, Det. Amelia Sachs, attempt to stop a sadistic serial killer known as the Watchmaker, so named because he leaves specially constructed clocks at the site of each of his murders. However, as so often happens in Deaver's stories, not everything is even close to what it seems. Mantegna gives a smooth, no frills performance. He keeps the vocal deviations for each character to a minimum, concentrating instead on making their dialogue natural and realistic. His low-key delivery works especially well when describing the point of view of the Watchmaker or when delving into the inner thoughts of the killer's sexually deviant accomplice. The scenes between the two villains as they calmly discuss the fates of their intended victims, both before and after death, are genuinely chilling in their execution. Deaver fans will be pleased to have Rhymes and Sachs back in a new intricate and compelling thriller, with Mantegna once again serving as an excellent narrator.

In order to get as many books read that have been on my TBR-shelf for quite some time, now it's this books turn.

Boy, did I like this book! Neglected duties, woke up early, all just to finish it, no, to find out how it ends. And now that I'm done, I feel sad because there's no more pages to turn.

A very good thriller. Rhyme, Sachs and Dancer all playing a part. Plot twists, schemes, it had me fooled over and over again. Well done!

Nice touch, the watches indicating time of chapters.

The only thing I did not like was the listing of evidence, crime scene findings a few times in the book.
