A killer flees the scene of a homicide at a prestigious Manhattan music school and locks himself in a classroom. Within minutes, the police have him surrounded. Then a scream rings out, followed by a gunshot. The police break down the door. The room is empty. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are brought in to help with the high-profile investigation. For the ambitious Sachs, solving the case could earn her a promotion. For the quadriplegic Rhyme, it means relying on his prot#65533;g#65533;e to ferret out a master illusionist they've dubbed 'the conjurer', who baits them with gruesome murders that become more diabolical with each fresh crime. As the fatalities rise and the minutes tick down, Rhyme and Sachs must move beyond the smoke and mirrors to prevent a terrifying act of vengeance that could become the greatest vanishing act of all.… (mais)

“... the killer escaped from a room from which there was no escape.”

In this one, Rhyme and company are pursuing the Conjurer, a killer who uses ‘magic’ as a part of his murders. He also is a master of the ‘quick change’ and disguises! AND, he’s killing his victims using old, classic magic acts like the Water Torture Cell routine! Also, his plan, “... was a masterpiece, involving dozens of tricks of the illusionist’s trade. Feint and double feint, careful timing, clever diversions.” He’s “a man whose soul was devoted to deception.”

But, he’s up against the Immobilized Man, and that’s bad news for him! It's a good read, full of twists and turns and misdirections - on both sides! It might be a touch too long, but I still enjoyed it! ( )

This is the first Lincoln Rhyme novel that I have read. I picked it after reading favourable reviews here on Amazon, and because I thought that the illusionist theme sounded interesting.

There were several things that I liked about the book. I did like how magic tricks were integrated with the story, and how you got to know how many tricks are carried out. I also liked the investigating duo Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs. And the book has its fair share of exciting action scenes.

But in the end I thought that there were a bit too many twists to the plot. Basically the murderer is doing this, this, this and this in order to do that, instead of simply doing that in the first place. Don't get me wrong - I love plot twists, and I think they are essential to a good mystery. But in this case I thought the twists became too fantastic.

I also thought that the deductions made by Lincoln Rhyme were too much in some places. It is fine to draw conclusions from the evidence, but at times it felt like too much was found out from too few clues.

It's an OK thriller, with a nice magician theme, but in the end the plot was too far-fetched for my liking. I'll try some other authors before coming back to Jeffery Deaver. ( )

I simply loved it. A good Lincoln Rhyme thriler. ( )

I can honestly say I am surprised that I loved this book. I thought the last two Rhyme books were seriously off and I didn't even know if I could continue with this one, but I did. Glad I bought it. We have Rhyme and Sachs investigating a case in which a murderer has someone escaped from what appears to be a locked room. The more they investigate, the more they find themselves embroiled in the world of magic and illusion. I got a kick out of this book since Deaver sprinkles little gems throughout regarding some famous tricks and illusions. I also loved how those into this use a variety of methods to trick an audience's senses.

The love between Ryhme and Sachs makes more sense in this one. Thank goodness. I really didn't get what was going on between the two of them in the last two books and wondered how the heck they even worked together. What really works this time through is that we get to see a stronger and more confident Sachs. We have Sachs testing for the sergeant's exam and it looks like she has a promotion in her sights.

Rhyme is still his sarcastic self and ready to rush out and feel injured on perceived slights. However, this one made him more human to me due to an introduction of a secondary character named Kara.

I love the characters we have grown to know through the series like Lon and others. But with the introduction of the character Kara I finally found someone that I hope pops up in future books.

We also per usual have a POV starring the bad guy and I wish that Deaver would stop that. These books feel so full and I wish he either cut the number of characters we track, or just leave out the bad guy's justification. Also the final final reveal of the bad guy didn't work for me at all. It was way too out there to be believed. But I felt that way about most of the bad guys in these books except for The Bone Collector.

The writing was great. There is a lot of historical information and detail included in this book. I can say that for once I didn't feel overwhelmed on how the science was presented to me either. Deaver did a better job of including the science talk in dialogue with characters.

The flow was off throughout though. I think that's because of the multiple red Herrings we get in this book. At one point I maybe said please just let it end. But the book kept going and going. The big case that Rhyme and Sachs investigating ties into an active case dealing with a white supremacist movement so that was gross to read about it considering what is going on in the US right now. It seems like lately a lot of my books are apt due to current political shennigans.

The ending though leaves things changed in Sachs professional life. I wonder how that is going to impact her continuing work with Rhyme. ( )

This latest in the Lincoln Rhymes series is maybe the best. I've never been a fan of magic shows and this book is all about a magician serial killer. For those of us who don't like magic, it's all about the reality behind it. But, I'll just bet those who are captivated by magic will enjoy it just as much. As usual the plot is tight, the characters are great and the action is thrilling.

"A conjuring trick is generally regarded by magicians as consisting of an effect and a
method. The effect is what the spectator sees... The method is the secret behind the effect and allows the effect to take place."
