The Coffin Dancer

book | Fiction | 1998
US → Pocket Books Inc
UK → Hodder and Stoughton

The Coffin Dancer, America's most wanted hit man, is back. He's been hired by an airline owner who wants three witnesses taken care of before his trial, and has got the first, a pilot, by blowing up his entire plane. Enter quadriplegic ex-cop Lincoln Rhyme, who can find forensic evidence to hang a man in the smallest debris, and his assistant Amelia Sachs.

Their job is to keep the remaining two witnesses safe, and to find the Coffin Dancer before he finds them. Because he will find them, and anyone else who tries to get in his way.

Reviews

Trust Deaver's superb plotting and brisk, no-nonsense prose to spin fresh gold from tired straw
Publishers Weekly
Full Review

Wake up Scarpetta fans, Lincoln Rhyme is here to blast you out of your stupor
Entertainment Weekly

A terrific, high-paced thriller
Wales on Sunday

Deaver is just as cunning and deceptive as his killer; don't assume he's run out of tricks until you've run out of pages.
