Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs return to New York City from their honeymoon in Italy to discover a killer is terrorizing New York City. Dubbed the Fiance Killer, their latest foe targets newly engaged couples by following them into jewelry stores, ending the couples' lives just before they can purchase the ring that symbolizes the future that will never be theirs. As panic grips the city, Rhyme and Sachs quickly spring into action with the full weight of the NYPD backing up the pair's forensic brilliance. But the killer proves elusive, and his agenda is much more than first meets the eye. Soon it becomes clear that the closer Rhyme and Sachs draw to the killer, the closer the killer draws to them. And their foe soon notices that there's something especially arresting about the ring Rhyme gave Sachs--something that could cost both of them their lives.

Had read this book previously, not one of his best. Think it was his first book written after his motorcycle accident not up to his standard of writing. Just not as interesting as his books are normally. Finished it as I am a die hard Deaver fan.

A complete waste of time. The worst Lincoln Ryme novel he's written.

Another brilliant Lincoln Rhyme novel with the requisite, tantalizing twists. Deaver leaves no stone unturned and ties up loose ends, especially for one of the almost victims which, as an avid reader, I was waiting for and Deaver didn't disappoint. The only burr in my saddle is that Deaver is becoming almost too formulaic for his own good.

What an amazing book in the series so many twists and red herrings.
