it was amazing

This book was truly fantastic! Lincoln Rhyme is an exceptional man who delivers every punch and bang that a normal detective would- the only exception; he is a quadriplegic (he is pretty much paralyzed completely). I did not know very much about that condition until I researched further (after reading this book) And sometimes the book seems a little far fetched (he miraculously still has movement in one finger) but it doesn't disappoint. It is funny, (Rhyme is a bit of a character, and when i say A BIT I mean A LOT) dramatic, gruesome, sad and somewhat heart warming. Terrifically written!! :]

It keeps you guessing and sitting on the edge of your seat through the entire book right up until the final scene
(I wont spoil the ending)but it is AMAZING! I was pleasantly surprised when i discovered the movie edition of this book- it is (obviously) not as good, but it is amazing to see the characters come to life. My only wish was that they had kept Thom a boy! No offense to Queen Latifah, I just thought he would be really cute ;)

I recommend this for ANYONE who loves a good crime/ suspense novel
