Fiction. Literature. HTML:Lincoln Rhyme is back! The brilliant criminologist returns with his partner and paramour Amelia Sachs, in a blistering bestseller that tests forensic detective work in a brave new world.
When Special Agent Kathryn Dancea brilliant interrogator and kinesics expert with the California Bureau of Investigationis sent to question the convicted killer Daniel "Son of Manson" Pell as a suspect in a newly unearthed crime, she feels both trepidation and electrifying intrigue. Pell is serving a life sentence for the brutal murders of the wealthy Croyton family in Carmel years earliera crime mirroring those perpetrated by Charles Manson in the 1960s. But Pell and his cult members were sloppy: Not only were they apprehended, they even left behind a survivorthe youngest of the Croyton daughters, who, because she was in bed hidden by her toys that terrible night, was dubbed the Sleeping Doll.

But the girl never spoke about that night, nor did the crime's mastermind. Indeed, Pell has long been both reticent and unrepentant about the crime. And so with the murderer transported from the Capitola superprison to an interrogation room in the Monterey County Courthouse, Dance sees an opportunity to pry a confession from him for the recent murderand to learn more about the depraved mind of this career criminal who considers himself a master of control, a dark Svengali, forcing people to do what they otherwise would never conceive of doing. In an electrifying psychological jousting match, Dance calls up all her skills as an interrogator and kinesicsbody languageexpert to get to the truth behind Daniel Pell.

But when Dance's plan goes terribly wrong and Pell escapes, leaving behind a trail of dead and injured, she finds herself in charge of her first-ever manhunt. But far from simply fleeing, Pell turns on his pursuersand other innocentsfor reasons Dance and her colleagues can't discern. As the idyllic Monterey Peninsula is paralyzed by the elusive killer, Dance turns to the past to find the truth about what Daniel Pell is really up to. She tracks down the now teenage Sleeping Doll to learn what really happened that night, and she arranges a reunion of three women who were in his cult at the time of the killings. The lies of the past and the evasions of the present boil up under the relentless probing of Kathryn Dance, but will the truth about Daniel Pell emerge in time to stop him from killing again?

Come sempre avvincente e ben scritto, non oltrepassate la metà di notte se no farete l'alba...

(2007)2nd of Deaver's novels I've read. This one follows Katherine Dance, a CBI (California) agent who specializes in reading people and if they are lying (a lot like the TV show Lie to Me). Very good as she and her agents and FBI try to track down a Charles Manson type killer who escapes from prison but does not leave the area. The killer is manipulative with his followers and with his captors as well. Seems that Dance is the only one who can pick up on this. Twist ending I did not see coming. (PW) Kathryn Dance, an investigator with the California Bureau of Investigation, returns from Deaver's The Cold Moon (where she was a secondary) in this post?prison break pulse-pounder. Dance is the lead cop handling the escape of psychopathic killer Daniel Pell, dubbed "Son of Manson" by the press for his "family" of young runaways and his most horrendous crime, the murders of computer engineer William Croyton, Croyton's wife and two of their three children. The only child left alive, nine-year-old Theresa, is known as the Sleeping Doll. Pell, charismatic and diabolically intelligent, continually eludes capture, but Dance, a specialist in interrogation and kinesics (or body language), is never more than a few suspenseful minutes behind. Dance is nicely detailed, and procedural scenes where she uses somatic cues to ferret out liars are fascinating. The book sags in its long middle, but toward the end Deaver digs into his bottomless bag of unexpected twists and turns, keeping readers wide-eyed with surprise, and leaving them looking forward to more of the perspicacious Dance.

Audiobook version. Although I didn't care much for the main character, Katherine Dance, the secondary characters were compelling enough to keep me listening. There were a few plot twists that came to me as a pleasant surprise, and overall I enjoyed the story. I probably will not listen to any more in this series, though. ( )

En 1999, Daniel Pell asesinó a toda una familia. Sólo dejó viva a una niña, escondida entre sus muñecas. Los medios la bautizaron como "La muñeca dormida". Daniel Pell fue condenado a cadena perpetua y se ganó el mote de "El hijo de Manson". Como el célebre criminal, Pell también tenía una "familia", capaces de cometer los actos más terribles por él.
La agente especial Kathryn Dance es una experta en análisis del lenguaje corporal: el arte de leer cada gesto, cada tic, y detectar mentiras o incoherencias en un testimonio. Cuando Dance se enfrenta a Pell, lo que percibe la deja horrorizada y, a la vez, fascinada. Pell no es un criminal común. Y cuando Pell se fuga de la prisión en una acción espectacular y perfectamente ejecutada, para iniciar una sanguinaria seguidilla de crímenes por todo el país, Dance debe utilizar todos sus recursos para atraparlo, aunque su propia vida esté en peligro.

I have enjoyed all of Jeffery Deaver's books, which have mostly been in the Lincoln Rhyme series. My rating is not really absolute, but more in comparative to others of this type.

The last one I read, "The Cold Moon," introduced a new character, Kathryn Dance, from the Calif Bureau of Investigation. She came to help, and at first Rhyme had little interest, as she used psychological methods as opposed to his scientific physical evidence, and he's very opinionated and thought his method was the only way.

After she proved to be very helpful, he began to give in a bit. I think that the two of them as a team are better than either one, and I'd like to see more collaboration between them.

When I found out there was a series with Kathryn Dance, I jumped at the chance to read one, and was not disappointed. This book was one I had trouble putting down. When it seemed to be over, there was still more. Then, when it really seemed to be over, there was even more. This is somewhat typical of what I've seen from Deaver; you can never think you know the whole story til it's over. ( )
