really liked it

This was my second Lincoln Rhyme book and I liked it quite a bit. A solid plot, good twists, and excellent characters made this book rather enjoyable. The real scene stealer in this novel was the character of Sonny Lee. He is Chinese, witty, smart, and is almost the star of the book (especially considering that it is suppose to be a 'Lincoln Rhyme' novel). However, Rhyme and Amelia are just as good as I remember them from 'The Vanished Man', both heavy thinkers who will do everything possible to solve a crime. This time they are matching wits against the Ghost a Chinese snake-head, someone who charges huge fees to people looking to be smuggled into America. When this latest group of Chinese refugees find their boat sunk and the Ghost ruthlessly tracking them down to kill off the survivors. The Ghost is a pretty decent villain too, not a total monster (based on backstory) but someone driven just far enough over the edge. A gripping story.
