The Steel Kiss by Jeffery Deaver (a book blurt)

This is the 12th in a book series about a world-renowned forensic detective, Lincoln Rhyme, who is quadriplegic, and a kick-ass New York detective, Amelia Sachs. Together they make a powerful combination of increasing the odds in solving complex cases. They’re the kind of characters you miss after you finish the book. The crimes they solve are full of puzzles that make you think along with this duo. Another fun thing about this author is he writes about current or past events or just things that he finds interesting. For example, in this story he delves into computer automation, which plays a part in the criminal’s killing method.

With this review and maybe all I do going forward, I’m keeping things short. I call these “blurts” because I want you to know about the book or movie without spoiling it for you. So that’s all for now, folks.

Listed below are prior Deaver books on his Lincoln Rhyme series in the order they were published; here you can see how the romance between Rhyme and Sachs came to blossom. Yes, this too is a big draw of thriller series. You’d be surprised how many such series include romance. However, this genre contains action, mystery, and heinous crimes, too. I will continue updating the list below, as I finish reading his new publications.

The Bone Collector
The Coffin Dancer
The Empty Chair
The Stone Monkey
The Vanished Man
The Cold Moon
The Broken Window
The Burning Wire
XO
The Kill Room
The Skin Collector

  1. The Bone Collector was also a movie, right? I think I seen parts of that film here and there. The detective was confined to a bed, and it reminds of the detective described in your blurt. I don’t think I read anything by Jeffery Deaver. Did you read the entire series?
