Lincoln Rhyme, the world's greatest forensic criminologist. His partner and lover, Amelia Sachs. And an unstoppable killer with one final, horrific trick up his sleeve.

A killer flees the scene of a homicide at a prestigious music school and locks himself in a classroom. Within minutes, the police have him surrounded. There's a shout from inside, followed by a gunshot. The police break down the door. The room is empty. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are brought in to help with the high-profile investigation of a master illusionist. But the conjurer baits them with gruesome murders that become more diabolical with each fresh crime.

As the fatalities rise and the minutes tick down, Rhyme and Sachs must move beyond the smoke and mirrors to prevent a terrifying act of vengeance that could become the greatest vanishing act of all.

Booklist
Full Review

This is prime Deaver
Publishers Weekly

the book's plotting and pacing—featuring twist upon twist and reversal upon reversal—are nothing short of dazzling, reminiscent of Agatha Christie at her best. Deaver proves himself an accomplished illusionist, misdirecting your attention with one hand while slipping a firecracker down your pants with the other.
