Another one from the Lincoln Rhyme series. Again a very good read, more so even than the previous one I read.
More tension (maybe that was influenced by the electricity that was omnipresent in this book😉).
Interesting to think about the 'what if' this book put in my mind.

A surprising ending, I never thought in that direction. An interesting way to combine two books that apparently go in different directions at first.

Looking forward to another one from the series! ( )

Thank goodness "The Burning Wire" rebounded from a lackluster 8th book (The Broken Window). This one is also not as long as previous reads so that was much appreciated. In this 8th book, Rhyme and Sachs get called in when a mysterious figure is set on attacking the people of New York with electricity. No this isn't Shocker. But honestly, you start thinking of this book that way when you get the POV of the man who is set on killing people due to his obsession with electricity.

We begin with Rhyme being bored since he has no cases to work on at the moment. Since the last book when we went into Rhyme doing more rehab, he had gained a little bit of movement, but that is it. Rhyme is still focused on catching his nemesis, The Watchmaker (see Cold Moon) so we do get updates about that character via another character this series introduced, Kathryn Dance (also see Cold Moon). When a bus nearby is damaged due to an explosion because of burning wire connected to a plant nearby, Rhyme and Sachs are called in to assist. Due to the NYPD and FBI being afraid of a missed terrorist connection, the clock is ticking for Rhyme and his usual companions to track down the person or persons responsible.

I can honestly say this is the most I liked Rhyme since around the first book. We get his vulnerability when he has a medical setback and also the book does a nice callback to how suicidal Rhyme used to be in The Bone Collector (Lincoln Rhyme #1). Rhyme knows that being able to still work cases and also his relationship with Amelia Sachs is what brought him back to the other side. Rhyme's encyclopedia knowledge of most things science does not extend much to electricity, so we have to get more information about that via the bad guy's POV and also what characters tell Sachs.

Sachs besides her POV working the scene here and there we don't get much time with. I am not complaining though. I think the last book with her and the nonsense with Pammy was a bit too much for me. I do wish we had seen Sachs interact with her mother more though. She's always this faceless character to me and that's about it.

We also go to Ron Pulaski's POV in this one. And either Deaver needs to toughen this character up, or just devote more of the POV to Sachs. I feel like Pulaski has not changed one iota since he was first introduced. I also find it odd that Rhyme's dream is one day that Sachs and Pulaski run the Crime Scene department or whatever it was referred to in this book. I wonder if Sachs and Pulaski even know about his dream or would agree with it. There was an interesting development regarding Pulaski in this one that I would have been more favorable to if Deaver wasn't so interested in resolving it by the end of the book. It could have been nice to follow up with it in the next book.

We also get Fred Dellray's POV which I liked a lot. We get to see him struggling with the changing nature of the FBI and what place if any he has in it anymore.

We also get the bad guy's POV and his obsession with electricity though seems at odds with his mission in this book. I won't get into it in the review otherwise I will have spoiled what I considered a great reveal.

I thought it was interesting in this one that we get a sense of the characters moving on with their lives between books which is nice. We get a reference to Rhyme and Sachs visiting Rhyme's cousin Arthur (see The Broken Window) who I still don't care for much. But also we get references to Sachs getting a new car and working on it with her pseudo niece Pammy. We get references to one of the characters still doing his ballroom dancing and everyone else asking about it.

The flow of the book works in this one though once again I have to say the little bits we get about the Watchmaker messes with things. I get why Deaver did that when I got towards the end, but I started to get tired of Dance and Rhyme talking via phone while Rhyme was trying to work the case in New York and another one elsewhere.

The book ends on a good note. Deaver tries to set up another twist but I wasn't fooled by it for a second. I guess if I was reading this book when it first came out, I would have been worried, but since I know other books follow this one I just went eh interesting. ( )

I think I'm maybe done with Lincoln Rhymes. This story was good, the plot part of the book was interesting and I learned a lot about electricity! But I'm getting really tired of the way Deaver has taken to dealing with his series characters. I kept wanting to shout, I GET IT, MOVE ON! ( )
