Deaver Jeffery

The vanished man

Coronet, Hodder and Stoughton, London 2003


 This crime story is a sequel of the Lincoln Rhyme thrillers . Don´t expect anything remotely realistic about this thriller, then you can enjoy it. The plot may have been inspired by a surge of books about magic in the wake of Harry Potter.

A frustrated magician murders to show his “revered audience” that he is simply the best. And Rhyme, bound to his wheelchair, with his lover Amelia Sachs as his assistant, shows that he is up to the challenge, but only after some really gory details are gloated over.
