From the author of The Bone Collector, now an NBC TV series. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs return to New York City to investigate a triple murder and confront a killer terrorizing couples at their happiest--and most vulnerable in this explosive New York Times bestseller. In the early hours of a quiet, weekend morning in Manhattan's Diamond District, a brutal triple murder shocks the city. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs quickly take the case. Curiously, the killer has left behind a half-million dollars' worth of gems at the murder scene, a jewelry store on 47th street. As more crimes follow, it becomes clear that the killer's target is not gems, but engaged couples themselves. The Promisor vows to take the lives of men and women during their most precious moments--midway through the purchase of an engagement ring, after a meeting with a wedding planner, trying on the perfect gown for a day that will never come. The Promisor arrives silently, armed with knife or gun, and a time of bliss is transformed, in an instant, to one of horror. Soon the Promiser makes a dangerous mistake: leaving behind an innocent witness, Vimal Lahori, a talented young diamond cutter, who can help Rhyme and Sachs blow the lid off the case. They must track down Vimal before the killer can correct his fatal error. Then disaster strikes, threatening to tear apart the very fabric of the city--and providing the perfect cover for the killer to slip through the cracks.… (mais)

I'm going to go with 3.5 stars on this book which I was so looking forward to read. I have only recently started with this series so the ending although surprised me was underwhelming since I didn't read all Lincoln Rhyme books. ( )

Good but not great Lincoln Rhyme series book. Two loosely related plots, and very late connection to an earlier protagonist (Watchmaker) and book that is revealed in the last few pages. There is a clear indication of an additional b book involving this character. Many chapters end with resolution of the events discussed pages to chapters later. ( )

Really a 3.5 but NOT my favorite. It seemed like two stories that were too short to stand alone so they were conveniently merged... still like the characters and I expect we'll see the return of a villain soon. ( )

I can always count on Jefferey Deaver to deliver a well-written crime novel where nothing is at it seems. If you have read Deavers previous books, then you know what I mean. That is why I suspected that not everything is what it seemed when everything seemed to go smoothly in the book.

Newly married Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are tasked with finding not only a crazed killer that seemed to be targeting couples that are to be married but also a witness to the first crime. A triple murder in Manhattan's Diamond District. Of course, this is not easy tasks, the killer is maiming and killing his way and looking for the young witness while the witness tries to get away from the town.

And, this is just a small fraction of the story. And, the rest of it well spoilers! It's darn hard to review a book like this because there are so many things going on that you just need to find out for yourself when you read the book. All I can say that Jeffrey Deaver has done it again! As usual! The book is thick, but never boring, filled with fabulous twist and an absolutely marvelous ending. Kind of cliffhanger-ish, but still a satisfying ending. I had a blast reading this book and it's a series that keep going strong with each book deliver a satisfying story. I can't wait to read the next book!

If you have never read a Jeffery Deaver book before, then I urge you to do so. Start with the first book in the Lincoln Rhyme series, The Bone Collector!

I want to thank Grand Central Publishing for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review! ( )

After I read the last couple of Lincoln Rhyme novels, I promised myself I wouldn't read anymore. But I read this one anyway. I think I've had enough. I only gave this as many as 2 stars because I was able to read it to the end.

These novels always spend a lot of time explaining things. In this book we learn about diamond mining, diamond cutting, geothermal energy extraction, the enmity between Muslims and HIndus in Kashmir, earthquakes, and sculpting. Some of this explaining was due to say, evidence being examined. A lot of it was just Deaver telling us stuff he thought we needed to know. Did all this stuff hang together into a story? Well, sort of.

The story is a classic onion layered story. Peel away one layer, the seemingly senseless murder of a diamond cutter, and another layer, the finding of diamonds at a geothermal mining operation is revealed. It was all very implausible to me. It was like Deaver had taken a random Wikipedia walk and wove together a story.

Oh, and if you manage to stick through to the end, there's an entirely unexpected tie in to a past Rhyme bad guy.

My biggest problem with these stories has always been the cliff-hanger chapter endings. For example, in this one, Amelia gets pitched face first into a mud pool. She struggles, gets sucked further in, can't hold her breath, and the chapter ends. Then several paragraphs into the next chapter, she's rinsing mud out of her hair while telling the paramedics that she's ok. This happens several times (although not always with Amelia). In another, a retired couple couple is trying to escape from their burning house. It's quite dramatic. They make it to the garage door and hit the button on the door opener. The chapter ends. We don't learn their fate until chapters later, and in an off-hand fashion.

And worst of all, Lincoln and Amelia are hardly in the story. Most of it is told from the viewpoint of a witness and the bad guy.

Never again. ( )
