The Burning Wire by Jeffery Deaver

The Burning Wire by Jeffery Deaver

Finally a good book. I have liked most of Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme novels and this is another good one. There is some regular foul language so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under 14 yrs old. The technical aspect of electricity is talked about at length and may be hard for someone under 16 yrs old to grasp thoroughly. But, with those limitations, it's a great read for everyone.

Lincoln Rhyme is a quadriplegic crime scene analyst. His brownstone in New York is outfitted with the most up-to-date lab and computer equipment. His team includes his girlfriend and police woman, Amelia Sachs; their younger protege, Pulanski; Lincoln's personal assistant and loyal friend, gay Thom; his favorite lab doctor, Mel Cooper; NYPD Lon Sellito, and Fred Dellray (FBI). Someone has rigged an electrical arc that grounds on a sign. The intense, super powerful arc melts the sign metal and sprays it in a shot-gun type spray of tiny hot pellets that cuts through a man like swiss cheese. A city bus has stopped to pick up a passenger and it's the passenger that dies this gruesome death. Then comes a letter taking responsibility for it and demanding the local electrical company follow it's instructions or face worse attacks.

Rhyme and Sachs go to work trying to find the perpetrator(s) before another attack. I was caught up in the book and enjoyed it. Kudos to Deaver!
