Hmm. I wonder if I need to take a break from this series. The storylines seem to be getting more and more far-fetched, to the point of being silly. I liked the Geneva Settle character a lot. It was fun having Kara show up in this book for a moment, too. The rest of the book? It just didn't do anything for me. The AAVE parts should have been written by someone who is actually African American. It felt sooo forced. And then there was the short terrorist plot line that totally seemed to not fit in with the rest of the book AT ALL. Yep. It's time for a break...

This was a very slow developing story. Authors should avoid deliberately extending a story by ineptitude of the characters;. the best shot in the police force has the bad guy dead to rights and misses. Police officers fumble with their weapons and almost shoot each other, police surround a building and the bad guy gets away-one thing the NYPD can do very well is surround a building-block-burough if necessary. This book was apparently written as a movie script and is about as believable as the average Hollywood offering.

This book felt different from the others in the Lincoln Rhyme's series, maybe because of the historic angle. Still, an entertaining read, fast-paced, with good characters

Another fun entry in the Lincoln Rhymes series. This time Lincoln and crew work to solve the attempted murder of a young girl and how it may be tied to criminal events from 1860s NYC. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way, which makes this an intense read.
