Lincoln Rhyme returns - to take on the terrifying world of Chinese organised crime.

Recruited to help the US government perform the nearly impossible, Lincoln Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs manage to track down a cargo ship carrying two dozen illegal Chinese immigrants, as well as the notorious human smuggler and killer known as the Ghost.

But when the Ghost's capture goes disastrously wrong, Lincoln and Amelia find themselves in a race against time - to stop the Ghost before he can discover and murder the two surviving families who have vanished deep into the labyrinthine world of New York City's Chinese community.

Over the next harrowing forty-eight hours, the Ghost ruthlessly hunts for the families, while Rhyme, aided by a policeman from mainland China, struggles to find them before they die and Sachs pursues a very different kind of police work, forming a connection with one of the immigrants that may have consequences going to the core of her relationship with her partner and lover, Lincoln Rhyme.

Reviews

Veterans of the series won't be surprised by Deaver's surgical skill in cutting between predators and prey, setting up taxing ordeals and violent confrontations, and springing surprises long after a less inventive plotter would have thrown in the towel.
