Publisher's Summary

The 10th novel in the critically acclaimed Lincoln Rhyme series, from number-one best-selling author Jeffery Deaver.

They are calling it the 'million-dollar bullet': a sniper shot from a near-impossible distance. But there is no crime-scene investigation, no evidence, and no co-operation from the local Bahamian police. Ambitious New York district attorney Nance Laurel won't let it go. This murder has all the hallmarks of a contract killing, and she has evidence that the order came from the highest levels of the US government.

Putting her career on the line, she calls in independent investigators: Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs. No strangers to controversy, their reputation for seeing what others miss is unparalleled, and she knows they will risk everything - even their lives - to seek the truth.

©2013 Jeffery Deaver (P)2013 Hodder & Stoughton

What the Critics Say

"Jeffery Deaver is something of a summer tradition for thriller fans, and a Lincoln Rhyme novel makes for a bumper year.... Deaver's pacy prose is addictive enough to result in dreadful sunburn if read on the beach, so approach with caution." (Independent on Sunday)

    I have catholic tastes in literature but draw the line at anything remotely resembling 'chick lit' (shudder, shudder, vomit, vomit).

    "Pedestrian story - enthralling performance"

    I try to be fair about Jeffrey Deaver but really, the last couple of books have felt like he was just 'phoning it in'. This book is fairly pedestrian but the performance is absolutely spectacular. Kerry Shale thoroughly enlivens proceedings with a huge range of voices and accents giving the whole story a gloss it perhaps doesn't entirely deserve. There are good books which don't really work as audiobooks, and some not so good books which work marvellously well as audiobooks. Frankly, Kerry Shale could make the telephone book sound interesting so I'm recommending 'The Kill Room' on the basis of this alone.

    Off to search for books with Kerry Shale as reader.

    "Ok...loved the series but not the best"

    Ok...loved the series but not the best story and if you've read the others it's bracing a little predictable. However still better than the vast majority of thrillers

    Long way not the worst bit of a routine ending think the characters need an input of fresh characters or location

    "Another great story from Deaver"

    (Spoilers!)


    Not the usual twisting turning roller coaster I expect from Deaver, but a great story nonetheless.

    Narrator was a bit irritating with his OTT accents which didn't seem to fit, but I got used to him ;)

    "The Rhyme stories just get better and better"

    Over all the story is very good perhaps a little long. I don't want to spoil the end so I'll say no more

    "One of the better Rhyme novels"

    For some reason I missed this book and listened to The Skin Collector first but it didn't seem to make any difference.
    This is an interesting, well constructed story and one in which Rhyme actually travels to one of the foreign locations - a good listen and if, like me, you've enjoyed the previous books then you'll like this one too.

    "Kerry Shale always worth a listen"

    Sometimes you want to take a break from the classics (I'm a Trollope junkie) and this is just the thing. Kerry Shale is a superb narrator and brings everything to life in this Lincoln Rhyme story. Escapism and a good yarn!

    "Roller-coaster thrills solving high-tech crime"
    Any additional comments?

    I have read and listened to other stories featuring Lincoln Rhyme, the brilliant wheelchair-bound forensic investigator and his partner, police officer Amelia Sachs - all enjoyable. I found The Kill Room exciting and suspenseful, with many twists and turns and a satisfying, unexpected conclusion. Part of the attraction of the series is the amount of information about a range of interesting topics that the erudite Rhyme imparts, or elicits from the cast of characters. In this book too I enjoyed becoming informed about topics from unmanned aircraft to osteoarthritis while zipping along in pursuit of the solution to the mystery.
    The performer does full justice to the voices of the males in the story, but the females are not quite so comfortable to the ear. Apart from Amelia’s, the women’s voices did not sound quite real, though the effect was not sufficiently jarring to spoil my pleasure.

    What made the experience of listening to The Kill Room the most enjoyable?

    A brilliant plot and story with more twists and turns than a roller coaster.I don't know how he comes up with so many twists in the books he writes. I was kept gripped by the story to the very end.
    The narration was very good and bought the characters to life.
    Thoroughly recommended.

    "Another outstanding Lincoln Rhyme thriller"
    What did you love best about The Kill Room?

    This is Jeffrey Deaver at his best, a really rivetting story with no boring bits.


    What does Kerry Shale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The ability to do the gardening, the washing and go to the gym without having to put it down.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Rhyme and Sachs are such a cute couple.
