A Lincoln Rhyme eBook Boxed Set

A trio of novels from internationally bestselling suspense master and seven-time Edgar Award nominee Jeffery Deaver, featuring quadriplegic NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme and his beautiful protégée, Detective Amelia Sachs (portrayed by Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie in the film The Bone Collector). The Coffin Dancer Lincoln Rhyme is on the hunt for an elusive murderer known only as the Coffin Dancer, a brilliant hitman who changes his appearance even faster than he adds to his trail of victims. Only one victim has ever lived long enough to offer a clue to the killer’s identity: an eerie tattoo on his arm of the Grim Reaper waltzing with a woman in front of a casket. When the chameleonlike assassin targets three federal witnesses for death in forty-eight hours, Rhyme must use his protégée and partner, Detective Amelia Sachs, as his eyes, ears, and legs to track the cunning murderer through the subways, parks, and airports of New York City and stop him before he strikes again. The Empty Chair Desperate to improve his condition, Lincoln Rhyme travels to the University of North Carolina Medical Center for high-risk experimental surgery. When a local teen is murdered and two young women go missing in the sleepy Southern outpost of Tanner’s Corner, Rhyme and his partner, Amelia Sachs, are the town’s best chance to find the girls alive. The prime suspect is a strange teenaged truant known as the Insect Boy, so nicknamed for his disturbing obsession with bugs, and Rhyme agrees to find the boy while awaiting his operation. But even Rhyme can't anticipate that Sachs will disagree with his crime analysis, and that her vehemence will put her in the swampland, harboring the very suspect whom Rhyme considers a ruthless killer. The Stone Monkey Recruited to help the FBI and the Immigration and Naturalization Service, Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs, manage to track down a cargo ship headed for New York City carrying two dozen illegal Chinese immigrants, as well as the notorious human smuggler and killer known as "the Ghost." But when the Ghost's capture goes disastrously wrong, Lincoln and Amelia find themselves in a race to track him down before he can find and murder the two surviving families from the ship, who have vanished into the labyrinth of New York City's Chinese community. As Rhyme struggles to locate the families, aided by a quirky policeman from mainland China, Sachs finds herself forming a connection with one of the immigrants that may affect her relationship with her partner and lover.

The Best American Noir of the Century

A magisterial anthology of American noir writing in the 20th century by the best-selling author of the LA Quartet: The Black Dahlia. The Big Nowhere , LA Confidential and White Jazz. In his intoduction to The Best American Noir of the Century, James Ellroy writes, "noir is the most scrutinised offshoot of the hard-boiled school of fiction. It's the long drop off the short pier and the wrong man and the wrong woman in perfect misalliance. It's the nightmare of flawed souls with big dreams and the precise how and why of the all-time sure thing that goes bad." Offering the best examples of literary sure things gone bad, this collection ensures that nowhere else can readers find a darker, more thorough distillation of American noir fiction. James Ellroy and Otto Penzler, series editor of the annual The Best American Mystery Stories, mined one hundred years of writing - 1910-2010 - to find this treasure trove of thirty-nine stories. From noir's twenties-era infancy come gems like James M. Cain's "Pastorale," and its post-war heyday boasts giants like Mickey Spillane and Evan Hunter. Packing an undeniable punch, diverse contemporary incarnations include Elmore Leonard, Dennis Lehane, Patricia Highsmith and William Gay, with many page-turners appearing in the last decade.

The Burning Wire

SOON TO BE A MAJOR TELEVISION EVENT FROM NBC, STARRING RUSSELL HORNSBY, ARIELLE KEBBEL, AND MICHAEL IMPERIOLI. From New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver—Lincoln Rhyme is back, and on the trail of a killer whose weapon of choice cripples New York City with fear. The weapon is invisible and omnipresent. Without it, modern society grinds to a halt. It is electricity. The killer harnesses and steers huge arc flashes with voltage so high and heat so searing that steel melts and his victims are set afire. When the first explosion occurs in broad daylight, reducing a city bus to a pile of molten metal, officials fear terrorism. Rhyme, a world-class forensic criminologist known for his successful apprehension of the most devious criminals, is immediately tapped for the investigation. Long a quadriplegic, he assembles NYPD detective Amelia Sachs and officer Ron Pulaski as his eyes, ears and legs on crime sites, and FBI agent Fred Dellray as his undercover man on the street. As the attacks continue across the city at a sickening pace, and terrifying demand letters begin appearing, the team works desperately against time and with maddeningly little forensic evidence to try to find the killer. Or is it killers…? Meanwhile, Rhyme is consulting on another high-profile investigation in Mexico with a most coveted quarry in his crosshairs: the hired killer known as the Watchmaker, one of the few criminals to have eluded Rhyme’s net. Juggling two massive investigations against a cruel ticking clock takes a toll on Rhyme’s health. Soon Rhyme is fighting on yet another front—and his determination to work despite his physical limitations threatens to drive away his closest allies when he needs them most…
