Review by

Have to say that this book absolutely terrified me detailing as it does the amount of information collected about us and held by various entities, from those wanting to sell us the right soap powder right through to various government agencies. Information which this book's criminal mastermind uses for his own nefarious ends. His first mistake is framing Lincoln Rhyme's estranged cousin for murder. In usual Jeffrey Deaver style the plot rolls along full of direction and misdirection, yet the perils that Amelia, Lincoln and their associates face from this foe are really scary, the monsters in the computer are more frightening that the ones that stalk the Manhatten streets.

Review by

Another great face paced adventure with Rhyme and Sachs. Knowledge is power- and scarily it seems there is so much out there for general consumption -a real big brother is watching you feeling!! If this is all true is it in our favour or not- or is this just hyped up for a great novel?!
