Publisher's Write-Up

The most dangerous and elusive hitman in the world is visiting New York City... on business.

Percey Clay, one of America's foremost pilots and the uncompromising owner of a struggling charter flight service, was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now she's the target of the Coffin Dancer.

Brilliant quadriplegic criminalist Lincoln Rhyme knows the killer only too well. He's a man who's raised murder to a form of high art; whose deadliest weapons aren't guns or knives but his uncanny knowledge of human nature.

Using his astonishing forensic knowledge and his unique insight into the criminal mind, Rhyme must combat both the hitman's amoral genius and Percey's headstrong determination if he is to save her - and keep himself alive.

I think that this is the first book by this author that I have had my grubby hands on, and I did enjoy it.

It is a strange thing to do to your hero (quadriplegia), but the limitations do make for interesting problems. It is a well thought out psychopathic killer versus brilliant cop type story, but there is more here than meets the eye, with action of differing descriptions taking place throughout the book, including a "wow" type twist that made me want to swear out loud, but less of my bad habits....

I have not seen the film of a previous book (The Bone Collector) but I think that I would rather read the book. He really does write very well, you know!
