Lincoln Rhyme is back, on the trail of a killer whose
weapon of choice cripples New York City with fear.
The weapon is invisible and omnipresent. Without it,
modern society grinds to a halt. It is electricity. The
killer harnesses and steers huge arc flashes with voltage so
high and heat so searing that steel melts and his victims
are set afire.
When the first explosion occurs in broad
daylight, reducing a city bus to a pile of molten,
shrapnel-riddled metal, officials fear terrorism. Rhyme, a
world-class forensic criminologist known for his successful
apprehension of the most devious criminals, is immediately
tapped for the investigation. Long a quadriplegic, he
assembles NYPD detective Amelia Sachs and officer Ron
Pulaski as his eyes, ears and legs on crime sites, and FBI
agent Fred Dellray as his undercover man on the street. As
the attacks continue across the city at a sickening pace,
and terrifying demand letters begin appearing, the team
works desperately against time and with maddeningly little
forensic evidence to try to find the killer. Or is it
killers . . . ?
Meanwhile, Rhyme is consulting on another
high-profile investigation in Mexico with a most coveted
quarry in his crosshairs: the hired killer known as the
Watchmaker, one of the few criminals to have eluded Rhyme’s
Juggling two massive investigations against a cruel
ticking clock takes a toll on Rhyme’s health. Soon Rhyme is
fighting on yet another front—and his determination to work
despite his physical limitations threatens to drive away his
closest allies when he needs them most . . .
