The tenth novel in the critically acclaimed Lincoln Rhyme series,
from Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver. Robert
Velasquez, an American citizen living in South America, is shot in
the Bahamas by a sniper. The killing was commissioned by the U.S.
government, who received a tip-off that Velasquez was planning a
terrorist attack on a U.S. oil company headquarters. But this
intelligence was fatally incorrect: anti-American Velasquez ordered
a protest at the oil company, not an attack. Lincoln Rhyme and
Amelia Sachs are drafted in to investigate. While Sachs traces
Velasquez's steps in New York, Rhyme travels to the scene of the
crime in Nassau, where he finds himself on a dangerous path trailed
by the sniper himself. As details of the case start to emerge, the
pair discover that not all is what it seemed. Can they achieve
justice and escape with their lives intact?
