Summary

After an early morning machinegun attack by a madman called the Digger leaves dozens dead in the Washington, D.C., subway, the mayor’s office receives a message demanding twenty million dollars by midnight or more innocents will die. It is New Year’s Eve, and with the ransom note as the only evidence, Special Agent Margaret Lukas calls upon retired FBI agent and the nation’s premier document examiner Parker Kincaid to join the manhunt for the Digger - or for hundreds, the first moments of the new year will be their last on earth.

Totally gripping

Mr Deaver certainly is the master of twists and turns in his plots - and was surprised by most of these. An excellent book, nicely read and full of suspense. I rushed through it to find what happened, and will reread to savour it better.

Good but not his most riveting

For some reason I found my mind wandering while listening to this book which doesn't usually happen with other Jeffrey Deaver books

Tedious

Sometimes Deaver needs to dispense with the minutia of the investigative process and just tell us a good story. This is one of those times. The details of the investigator's personal life were an unnecessary distraction; abridging them would help maintain a more suspenseful story. The CI101 is also far too detailed. It sometimes felt like we left a novel and entered a textbook. The strung out ending just made me want to say "enough". Not one of Deaver's best efforts.

Exceptional Reading

This was an exceptionaly read book. The reader did a wonderful job of switching voices! The only problem I had was with his pronounciation of the Potomac River. If you are going to read something aloud ask the locals on how to pronounce the names of landmarks. The river is pronounced puh-toe-mik. It was very annoying. Take a little time to do some research.

Just when you think it's almost over.....

Loved this book. Deaver has so many twists and turns, it keeps you guessing. He portrayed the Digger wonderfully. The singing was a great touch. Every mystery reader needs to read/ listen to The Devil's Teardrop. The characters are such that you feel you know them.
