The first novel in the New York Times bestselling series featuring forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme—from the author of The Never Game.

“Lightning-paced…a breakneck thrill ride.”—The Wall Street Journal

Lincoln Rhyme was once a brilliant criminologist, a genius in the field of forensics—until an accident left him physically and emotionally shattered. But now a diabolical killer is challenging Rhyme to a terrifying and ingenious duel of wits. With police detective Amelia Sachs by his side, Rhyme must follow a labyrinth of clues that reaches back to a dark chapter in New York City’s past—and reach further into the darkness of the mind of a madman who won’t stop until he has stripped life down to the bone.


  • Great Ending

    By Sdfrdeghfrjed
    I didn't see the movie and most of the book was really boring until the surprise ending
  • Fooled me

    By CIDk
    I can normally pick the bad guy by the middle of the book and thought I was correct up until the last couple of paragraphs/pages/the end. Love it! I was soooo wrong. Can't wait for the next one!
  • The Bone Collector

    By Mortimer's Friend
    I certainly liked this book. It is my first but not my last to read in this series. I gave it a 4 star rating, to leave some room for any coming improvement.
