On a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering in the black sky over New York City, two people are brutally murdered — the death scenes marked by eerie, matching calling cards: Renowned criminologist Lincoln Rhyme immediately identifies the clock distributor and has the chilling On a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering in the black sky over New York City, two people are brutally murdered — the death scenes marked by eerie, matching calling cards: Renowned criminologist Lincoln Rhyme immediately identifies the clock distributor and has the chilling realization that the killer — who has dubbed himself the Watchmaker — has more murders planned in the hours to come.
Rhyme, a quadriplegic long confined to his wheelchair, immediately taps his trusted partner and longtime love, Amelia Sachs, to walk the grid and be his eyes and ears on the street. But Sachs has other commitments now — namely, her first assignment as lead detective on a homicide of her own.
As she struggles to balance her pursuit of the infuriatingly elusive Watchmaker with her own case, Sachs unearths shocking revelations about the police force that threaten to undermine her career, her sense of self and her relationship with Rhyme. As the Rhyme-Sachs team shows evidence of fissures, the Watchmaker is methodically stalking his victims and planning a diabolical criminal masterwork Indeed, the Watchmaker may be the most cunning and mesmerizing villain Rhyme and Sachs have ever encountered.

Guess i should read this Lincoln Ulna series in order Thanks. Chris He appears in Book 9. See 1 question about The Cold Moon…. Lists with This Book. Feb 20, David rated it did not like it. Jeffery Deaver is, for me, a hit or miss author. When he is good, he is great.
When is is bad, his books are quite tedious. This one falls in the “bad” category. There is a killer on the loose with a “time” theme — The Watchmaker. Lincoln Rhyme is on that case. At the same time, Amelia Sachs has her own case, investigating police corruption. So far, so good. Readers of the series know that Deaver is fond of plot twists, and this book is no excepti What a mess.

The Cold Moon
Unfortunately, there are so many in this book that it just becomes ridiculous. After a lengthy buildup that takes quite a few pages, The Watchmaker is finally in high gear and Lincoln and friends must act quickly to catch him. Again, so far, so good.
Things are not what they seem. Then, a couple of chapters jegfery Those things are not what they seem! Finally, at the end of the book Things are not what they seem, and a character from a previous Lincoln Rhyme book shows up.
Making things worse, Rhyme and Co.
This book is a real mess, and it is clear that Deaver should have stuck to his tried and true formula of a great villain, time pressure and clever crime solving by Lincoln and Amelia. Here, he does not have enough ideas, so like a bad magician, he unveils twist after twist in a way that is not thrilling, dezver annoying. By the end I really liked this book. View all 3 comments.
Mixed feelings This started off as another fantastic story from Mr Deaver, and finished as one.
Luna Fria : Jeffery Deaver :
But in between seemed to be very convulted. Probably didn’t help that the copy I was reading had no line gaps when the scene changed. You would be reading about one set of characters in one sentence, then next paragraph was totally different set of characters but with no indication.
Had to keep going back to get it to make sense. Jul 04, Harry rated it it was amazing Shelves: By far, Jeffery Deaver is the one author with that uncanny ability to develop plot twists and very complex characters that leave you stunned to the end. If you’ve seen the movie, trust me, the books are far more ingenious and developed as compared to what we were presented with on the silver screen.
The Bone Collector is a series novel starring Lincoln Rhyme, our famous forensics expert bound to his bed and mobile wheelchair. Reading this novel I am reminded to never commit a crime.
Deaaver art of fo By far, Jeffery Deaver is the one author with that uncanny ability to develop plot twists and very complex characters that leave you stunned to the end. The art of forensics as described by Deaver leaves one little doubt as to trace evidence left behind at a crime scene.
Of course, this leaves Deaver no choice but to create such stunning criminal minds that they are indeed a match for our hero Lincoln Rhyme But it’s not just about the crime Same review for the whole series.
If you’ve read this review of Lincoln Rhyme, you’ve read them all. I really enjoyed the seventh book in the Lincoln Rhyme series. This one also gives us a first look at a character that Deaver reaver off into her own series, Kathryn Dance.
We get to see the science side of things and friia how Dance uses her expertise in kinesics, which is the science of body language, nonverbal gestures, postures and facial expressions. Dance works at the California Bureau of Investigation and gets pulled into this case via Lon Selitto who believes that Dance can help out Rhyme I really enjoyed the seventh book in the Lincoln Rhyme series.
Dance works at the California Bureau of Investigation and gets pulled into this case via Lon Selitto who believes that Dance can help out Rhyme and Sachs as they hunt down a man known as “The Watchmaker. What I found interesting in this one is that we have Sachs investigating her first homicide solo and also assisting on “The Watchmaker” cases.
It’s not often that we get to see Sachs independent from Rhyme while they jefvery investigating. Due jefferg Sachs running her own investigation, you would think her focus would be split, but I got a kick at seeing how she was handling things.
However, due to one of the cases not telling you, no spoilers here Sachs gets a huge revelation spilled her way. Rhyme is his typical self. However, he gets thrown a bit with Sachs off doing her own investigation and tends to act petty as hell. I do love that with Sachs running a case though, we get to see the rise of Officer Ron Pulaski that readers met in the last book.
Pulaski became a favorite while reading this book. I also loved the character of Kathryn Dance too. I do wish that we got more details about her though.
I know she’s a widow with two kids. I still have no idea how her husband died though. And I really wish we got to see her showcase her abilities more in this one. She was great in every scene and I enjoyed it. Per usual, Deaver shows us the police trying to track down The Watchmaker. But instead of being in fris character’s head, Deaver instead gives us the third person POV of a man assisting The Watchmaker.
I have to say that this character, Vincent, was grotesque. I maybe got a bit sick reading about him. I will have to say though that Deaver got way too repetitive with this character though. All Vincent thinks about is “the hunger” and eats a lot. We also get a reappearance of a character that I haven’t thought about since “The Bone Collector.
I would say that “The Cold Moon” is typical Deaver.

A lot of science with some great dialogue and Red Herrings thrown in. The ending leaves things with Rhyme having a nemesis though. I liken it to Holmes versus Moriarty.
I started reading the next book in the series after this, and was glad to see how Deaver continues with this in “The Broken Window.
LUNA FRÍA by Jeffery Deaver (2012, Paperback)
Normally, I don’t jump into the middle–let alone the last third–of a series to test the waters, but I learned that Deaver pushes plot while dropping tidbits of character to orient the reader, whatever she has read before.
This proved true here: It’s just enough for new readers, and, I imagine, just enough for fans who pick up dozens of other books between installments. I wonder if this isn’t the standard thriller fiction in general though Lee Child usually brushes past Reacher’s history in the majority of his books. The plot is the main protagonist of this book, and I’ll be durned if Deaver didn’t keep pulling the wool over my eyes throughout. Deaver is, in fact, known for his use of “twists” and misdirection in his writing, and he uses both to great effect here.
