Publisher's Summary

New York City is thrown into chaos by the assaults of the Bone Collector, a serial kidnapper and killer who gives the police a chance to save his victims from death by leaving obscure clues. The cops go to Lincoln Rhyme, an ex-NYPD forensics expert left paralysed after an accident on the job. Rhyme reluctantly postpones his ambitions towards suicide and puts together a forensic investigation team, enlisting as his eyes and ears young police officer Amelia Sachs.

    "Excellent performance"

    There are so many characters and the narrator had got a different voice or each and maintained them throughout. Did not particularly like his female voices but it did give them definition for their characters. Story was great.

    "Cracking listen brilliantly read"

    This is the first Jefferey Deaver that I have either read or listened to, and it definitely won't be my last. If you like Greg Hurwitz and Michael Connelly, you'll love this. It is very fast paced and it ties all the ends up nicely. I do like the author to tell me the end and not leaving me guessing... after all it's the author's story and I am paying him, so I want a proper end.. even if I don't like it.
    Jeff Harding narrates this brilliantly, (one of my favourite narrators and I often pick a story simply because he's the narrator.) I love all the voices, he does, especially the black policewoman who cracks me up... he's brilliant at getting the sassy edge.
    This story really keeps you guessing ... and even when you think you know who did what and why.. there was a brilliant twist I didn't see.
    I don't want to spoil the plot but I can honestly say it's one of the best listens for a while, it got me through a lot of teadious jobs...
    Highly recommended, I didn't want it to finish...

    "Quadriplegic Ex-Cop in a fight. Fantastic"

    What a great book with a preposterous yet joyous storyline. This was my first encounter with Lincoln Rhyme and his cantankerous view on life.
    I absolutely love this story and the characters were brilliant, Amelia was the perfect stooge to Lincoln and the supporting characters made for a high enjoyable yarn. It is a book where you just suspend any grip on reality you might have and just enjoy. Based on this book I will look forward to the rest of the series. Natation was perfect and built the characters extremely well
    Very glad I read this as my first as it seems to set out its stall for future books

    "Great book and storyline. Better Voice actor need"
    What disappointed you about The Bone Collector?

    The desire to hand the reader a tissue was constant due to the irritating nasally sound of his voice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'm a huge fan of Lincoln Rhyme. I have the entire set of books - my favourite being the Vanished Man.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different voice actor.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Bone Collector?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I'd purchased this audio book for a long road trip. It was a waste of money. I had to switch it off.
