Deaver's latest is filled with twists and turns

Posted: Updated:
UNDATED (AP) -

Part of the joy in watching an ace baseball pitcher throw a perfect game is that every toss is different and the batter can't figure out what's coming next. Jeffery Deaver has written an ace thriller to keep readers guessing and gasping with his latest Lincoln Rhyme thriller, "The Kill Room." A master magician with words, Deaver misdirects with one tale while what's really going on is just off the reader's radar.

A U.S. citizen visiting the Bahamas is shot and killed. Why would Rhyme, a detective with a brilliant mind capable of deciphering even the tiniest forensic clue, be interested in such a case? For starters, the "million-dollar bullet" was fired from almost a mile away. And the shattering glass from the shot killed two other people in the room. But what persuades him most of all is New York Assistant District Attorney Nance Laurel, who believes the killing was ordered by a government agency. She hopes, with Rhyme's help, to prosecute both the person who ordered the killing and the shooter himself.  

What Rhyme and his team don't realize is that they are dealing with an individual who knows their every move. He is able to get inside information on their progress and decides to cover his tracks and eliminate any and all witnesses.

The numerous twists and turns in "The Kill Room" are so fast and furious that by the novel's end, the reader will be dizzy -- and clamoring for more.
