  • Patrice Hoffman
    Back in the saddle with Jeffery Deaver and his crime fighting duo Amelia Sachs and Lincoln Rhyme. Although I've read most of the books in this series I can't help but picture Rhyme as Denzel Washington and Sachs as Angelina Jolie because of The Bone Collector movie I saw year before picking up the book of the same title. I know, I know Rhyme is nowhere near being a black dude but this is what happens when I see movies before reading the book. The...

    So, the other day, after a series of disappointing reads, I turned to Jeffery Deaver and Lincoln Rhyme for a sure thing.Sure enough, in a few pages, I was deep in a complicated mystery, compelling characters, and learning more than I ever knew about diamonds and diamond cutting. I had no idea the subject was so fascinating!Now, I’ll admit that, for a while, I thought Deaver had made a misstep with his villain. At times, the villain seemed more ...

Simultaneously an additional story unfolds in Brooklyn where a drilling construction site is home to numerous and extremely rare earth quakes that set off gas leaks and explosions resulting in a few fatalities. Rhyme and his team must conclude whether these two circumstances a...

    The Cutting Edge (Lincoln Rhyme #14) by author Jeffrey Deaver is another fast-paced thriller featuring criminal consultants, Lincoln Rhymes and Amelia Sachs. In this book, the recent murders of engaged couples or the soon-to-be-brides may not be the underlying reason for the brutal killings and attempted murders. The serial killer, unsub 47 has been given the name of The Promisor because he seems to be targeting certain diamantaires and couples w...

    Criminalist Lincoln Rhyme to Detective Amelia Sachs: "Didn't we say this whole plot was complicated?"Thirteen books in the Lincoln Rhyme and I am still thrilled and eager to crack open the latest in the series. And Book 14 in the series, The Cutting Edge, is an …" Oh, wow!" Actually I give this book five "Oh Wows!" on the Richter scale (which does have relevance to the story.)At this point, Lincoln and Amelia need no introduction other than to ...
  • J.D. Dehart
    I first encountered Jeffery Deaver in his treatment on James Bond, the novel Carte Blanche from 2011. Since then, I've sped through several Lincoln Rhyme stories. The Cutting Edge takes what we readers know of Deaver's work and maximizes it.There is tension and suspense, of course, but this title packs an additional and surprising pathos. The story takes turns, veers, and twists, as Deaver's work does, and the result is gripping and far from stal...

    The Cutting Edge is the 14th of the Lincoln Rhyme/Amelia Sachs series.It's Saturday morning and the Diamond District is extremely quiet.

    I have been a fan of Jeffery Deaver for so long, and I’m always really excited when there’s a new Lincoln Rhyme story out.The Cutting Edge is like Die Hard meets Bones with a bit more of a mystery thrown in for good measure. The plot is, as always, superb and full of twists and turns as Rhyme and Sachs try and uncover the identity of The Promiser, a brutal murderer hell bent on ruining couples happy engagements (it’s certainly put me off go...

    Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC of this book.Lincoln and Amelia, now safely married, return in a rather complicated adventure. As usual, Deaver tells several stories that in the end merge into one, but it is sometimes difficult to see the connections. The book is full of names and acronyms and everybody is a suspect. There are several cliffhangers but as a whole, the story is actually not very exciting. However, you do not read Deavers' books for...

    I've always loved this series and while I've missed a few books, I was excited to jump back in. And I'm still not disappointed!Technical, suspenseful, surprising are all good words to describe this. Add the fact hat my jaw dropped at the end. I love those extra twists :)
