9780340960622: The Twelfth Card

Bestselling master of suspense Jeffrey Deaver is back with a brand-new Lincoln Rhyme thriller. To save the life of a young girl who's being stalked by a ruthless hit man. Lincoln and his protege, Amelia Sachs, are called upon to do the impossible: solve a truly "cold case" -- one that's 140 years old.
The Twelfth Card is a two-day cat-and-mouse chase through the streets of uptown Manhattan as quadriplegic detective Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs try to outguess Thompson Boyd a man whose past has turned him into a killing machine as unfeeling and cunning as a wolf. Boyd is after Geneva Settle, a high school girl from Harlem, and it's up to Lincoln and Amelia to figure out why.
The motive may have to do with a term paper that Geneva is writing about her ancestor, Charles Singleton, a former slave. Charles was active in the early civil rights movement, but was arrested for theft and disgraced. Lincoln and Amelia work frantically to figure out what actually happened on that hot July night in 1868 when Charles was arrested.
Deaver's inimitable plotting keeps this story racing at a lightening-fast clip. With breathtaking twists and multiple surprises, this is Deaver's most compelling Lincoln Rhyme audiobook to date.

About the Author:

Jeffery Deaver is the international, #1 bestselling author of more than twenty-seven suspense novels, including The Bone Collector, which was made into a film starring Denzel Washington. He lives in North Carolina.

Dennis Boutsikaris won an OBIE Award for his performance in Sight Unseen and played Mozart in Amadeus on Broadway. Among his films are *batteries not included, The Dream Team, and Boys On the Side. His many television credits include And Then There Was One, Chasing the Dragon and 100 Center Street.

From AudioFile:

While the plot of Deaver's most recent Lincoln Rhyme thriller strains credulity, Dennis Boutsikaris's narration makes it a winning hand. Rhyme must find out why a seasoned killer is attempting to kill a 16-year-old Harlem girl. Geneva is researching a one-hundred-forty-year-old mystery concerning a disgraced ancestor. Rhyme and his sidekick, Amelia Sachs, have always been an engrossing pair. The trouble is there's not enough of them. Boutsikaris's glib narration saves the day, propelling listeners through the twists and turns of the complex plot. Boutsikaris also comfortably handles the street talk of Geneva and her friends. While Deaver's latest isn't all aces, because of Boutsikaris's performance, it's not a pass either. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
