Book Review – The Cold Moon – Jeffery Deaver


Lincoln Rhymes and Amelia Sachs are back, this time hunting a twisted serial killer while Sachs is also leading her own investigation. Their target, the Watchmaker, has a plan but will Rhymes and Sachs find out what it is before its too late?

A Jeffery Deaver novel is like a road going into the mountains, you think you see where it is ending but it may not be where you think it is and to get there it is often a very twisty trail. The Cold Moon has an incredibly clever and cunning foe in the Watchmaker, and some of the biggest twist yet from a Deaver novel. Just when you think that things are all cut and dried, something changes that really does stand everything on its head.

Through previous books, the main characters have become very well defined and fleshed out and so, with very little introductions, the story jumps straight into action. The Cold Moon introduces a new character who appears to be either a spin off character or a returning one that is very interesting and probably interesting enough to have their own book.

The Cold Moon is one of Jeffery Deaver’s best Lincoln Rhymes books so far. Very easy to get into but difficult as anything to guess where its going.
