The twelfth card [compact disc]
Jeffery Deaver
Adult Fiction DEAVER

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

The popularity of Deaver?s novels about quadriplegic police detective Lincoln Rhyme and his legwoman Amelia Sachs depends mightily on their personal stories (i.e., their romantic relationship, their struggles with depression and physical impairments) and the ingeniously twisted crimes they solve. Both elements have been served better in the past. While the plot is properly perplexing (why is a 16-year-old Harlem high schooler being stalked by a ruthless killer?), fans will be baffled by Deaver?s decision to move series supporting player NYPD lieutenant Lon Sellitto closer to center stage, thus significantly limited Rhyme?s presence in the story. Boutsikaris, an accomplished theater and film actor, and one of the better audio performers, provides a crisp narrative that moves the story quickly enough to build and maintain a fair amount of suspense, even through several lengthy plot recaps. He exhibits both versatility and imagination in finding the right voice for most of the characters, from the impatient, almost fussy Rhyme to the gruff and emotionally conflicted Sellitto. Simultaneous release with S&S hardcover (Reviews, April 18). (June) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

From Library Journal:

Because high schooler Geneva Smith is researching ancestor Charles Singleton, a former slave with a singular secret, she's being targeted by a killer whom Deaver's popular Rhyme-Sachs duo aim to stop. With a 12-city tour. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
