it was ok
Read in September, 2010

I can't put the Lincoln Rhyme novels down once I start reading, but find them ultimately rather unsatisfying. They set up one cliff-hanger after another only to find out again and again that Rhyme has anticipated it and set up the bad guys. Then you get an ending so improbable it's hard to keep a straight face. The bad guys are all revealed, the good guys are all OK and even the accidental killing turns out to have been a bad guy, so that's OK too. I rather like the characters of Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs, but the plots are just ridiculous.
