Gosh these are good. They’re so refreshingly honest in their directness. It’s not only great action with twists and turns but Sachs and Rhyme are interesting and I care about them. Masterful action telling. ( )

not my usual genre, but gave it a go. #3 in the series, but read fine as a stand-alone. Rhyme and his assistant Sachs are called into a missing person event in the swamps of North Carolina. Quick paced, as Rhyme finds obscure evidence to track the "insect boy". Interesting trivia about the lives of insects in the swamp. Got lost at the end and I think EVERYONE was guilty. ( )

Started with book #3...Lincoln Rhyme, New York paraplegic detective, in North Carolina. Them bubbas don't tolerate Yankees....sad. Lotsa folks, lotsa shooting...sometimes hard to follow the plot and the people who kept flipping sides. Typical Deaver....right up until the very end, he pulls yet more surprises. Will double back on #1 and #2 to see if they also feel like a fish out of water. ( )

Lincoln is back, but this time he’s in North Carolina for surgery, accompanied by Amelia Sachs and Thom, of course. And, also of course, there are a series of murders nearby, and the trio join the local police to try to catch the suspect, the Insect Boy! I enjoyed this read, but I think I prefer Lincoln and Co. in New York. The 'fish out of water' thing got tired after awhile. Still, all of the twists and turns kept me entertained! And, I had a big ol’ “aaaaaahhhhhh!” moment, literally out loud after reading page 424! And I love the topic of Roanoke - I have always been fascinated by the story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke! So, not as good as the first two, but good enough that I'm done for number four! ( )

Please note that I gave this book half a star, but I rounded it up to 1 star on Goodreads.

I loved books #1 and #2 and this book I would rather pretend just doesn't exist. This was bad. Not even haha bad like maybe I can find some humor in it. I mean it was bad to the point that I saw people jumping sharks in my head.

We have Lincoln, Sachs, and Lincoln's aide Thom going to North Carolina for an experimental treatment for Lincoln. Sachs is reluctant for Lincoln to have it due to reasons (a lot of them just nonsensical at this point) and while there they are asked to assist by a local man who has connections to one of their NYPD contacts.

This book was terrible. I am just going to be murmuring that in my head as I recall the very bad plot and logic gaps all through this book.

Lincoln is Lincoln, but not the ever knowing person he was due to his mind drifting to his surgery. Except when he is Lincoln and supposedly has the powers that other mere mortals do not and can surmise things that even the reader doesn't know in order to wrap up a plot.

Sachs sucks. I don't even want to get into what goes down with her in this book. But after the ending I wonder how she and Lincoln get back to any type of partnership. How would this impact her job? Cause I have a hard time believing a defendant wouldn't bring up her mess at every trial she is connected to.

The additional characters in this one are not developed at all. The so-called Insect Boy that is behind kidnappings may as well carry a sign that says "All I Need is Love". Nothing really works, and the back and forth between characters and Lincoln and Sachs was too much.

There is not enough science in this one. Instead most of the book is discussing the habits of bugs and no thank you. I thought the writing was not up to par with the first two books at all. Also I cannot believe that the book pretty much glosses over one character who I think was going to rape another one, but somehow that got patted down to him being unexpectedly aroused and he wasn't going to do anything? I don't know. I think I blacked out from sheer rage at that point. The issue was there were a ton of plot holes in this whole book and that's why it didn't work at all. I feel like the author was focused on telling a cool story and not on how that story would work for readers.

The flow was awful. I stopped counting the shifting POVs once I got to 5 (Lincoln, Sachs, kidnapped girl, kidnapped woman, law enforcement woman who called Sachs her Judas, etc.)

The setting of this small town in North Carolina was a sad joke. I don't think the things that were going on really could be carried off to such a large scale, but that is just me.

The ending. Ugh. It made absolutely no sense and I even checked with one of my lawyer friends who called BS on the whole thing. So that was funny. His exact words, "That's not a thing" so who knows. ( )
