The circus happens to be a favorite of mine, minus the clowns.
Dec 19, Erth rated it liked it. I read the first two chapters on Amazon and seemed really promising so I bought the book. Soon after author starts with lectures on forensics and how police system works which seems to be his passion or lectures on political correctness.
I had to escape paragraphs and even pages to save myself from that. Also, there are lame jokes, obviously humor is not his strong point. The author seems really capable of creating suspense when he wants to. If he only sticks to the actual story and drops the nit I read the first two chapters on Amazon and seemed really promising so I bought the book.
If he only sticks to the actual story and drops the nitty gritty of forensic evidence gathering. I can honestly say I am surprised that I loved this book.

I thought the last two Rhyme books were seriously off and I didn’t even know if I could continue with this one, but I did. Glad I bought it. We have Rhyme and Sachs investigating a case in which a murderer has someone escaped from what appears to be a locked room.
The more they investigate, the more they find themselves embroiled in the world of magic and illusion. I got a kick out of this book since Deaver sprinkles little gems throughou I can honestly say I am surprised that I loved this book. I got a kick out of this book since Deaver sprinkles little gems throughout regarding some famous tricks and illusions. I also loved how those into this use a variety of methods to trick an audience’s senses.
The love between Ryhme and Sachs makes more sense in this one. I really didn’t get what was going on between the two of them in the last two books and wondered how the heck they even worked together. What really works this time through is that we get mah see a stronger and more confident Sachs. We have Sachs testing for the sergeant’s exam and it looks like she has a promotion in her ddaver.
Rhyme is still his sarcastic self and ready to rush out and feel injured on perceived slights. However, this one made him more human to me due to an introduction of a secondary character named Jeffety. I love the characters we have grown to know through the series like Lon and others.
But with the introduction of the character Kara I finally found someone that I hope pops up in future books. These books feel so full and I wish he either cut the number of characters we track, or just leave out the bad guy’s vvanished. Also the final final reveal of the bad guy didn’t work for me at all. It was way too out there to be believed. But I felt that way about most of the bad guys in these books except for The Bone Collector.
The writing was great. There is a lot of historical information and detail included in this book. I can say that for once I didn’t feel overwhelmed on how the science was presented to me either. Deaver did a better job of including the science talk in dialogue with characters. The flow was off throughout though. I think that’s because of the multiple red Herrings we get in this book. At one point I maybe said please just let it end. But the book kept going and going.
The big case that Rhyme and Sachs investigating ties into an active case dealing with a white supremacist movement so that was gross to read about it considering what is going on in the US right now. It seems like lately a lot of my books are apt due to current political shennigans.

The ending though leaves things changed in Sachs professional life. I wonder how that is going to impact her continuing work with Rhyme. View all 3 comments. The last couple of novels in the series fell a bit flat but this one was back to its best with multiple plot links going on at the same time, teasing cliffhanger chapter endings and an evil villain who is killing people off in a fashion of famous magic tricks, sorry, illusions. The thing with reading a number of Jeffery Deaver novels is that you start to see the signposts of what is coming in the next part and second guess the inevitable twist.
My issue with the book was the ending as it seemed too far fetched, even for this type of book. There was a big reveal which I think was meant to be a drop the book kind of moment but ended up just being a shrug of the shoulders and finish it off before it ruins the good work put in earlier. This wasn’t complex or especially thought provoking and the ending was a little disappointing but if you’ve read any in the series this is one of the better ones and worth a read.
If you like this try: Roller coaster Real roller coaster of a book. Then drops off quite dramatically, until all of a sudden it becomes brilliant again. The description and explanation of the magic and illusions is beautifully done. So many twists and plot changes, really need to concentrate. Next Lincoln Rhyme book here I come.

Particularly I agree with another reader Mr Gavin H from Sidney, Australia below that the way “Malerick”, the bad guy of this story, fakes his dead and makes his way out of tight p VANISHING QUALITY The plot is long, convoluted and enthralling, however having read jefery of Jeffrey Deaver’s work and realizing that he really entertains in all his stories as a master of the “wild twist”, I can see that in this book he has abused too much of this resource, losing “the magic” that makes readers gasp.
Particularly I agree with another reader Mr Gavin H from Sidney, Australia below that the maj “Malerick”, the bad guy of this story, fakes his dead and makes his way out of tight police tbe is too much to believe for a wild twist. Also, the forensic job Lincoln Vaniwhed performs to solve the murder looks very poor compared to the hard work he used to do in early novels like “The Bone Collector”, and at the ending you can see him coming out of the blue in the home of the murderer in his wheelchair with the complex riddles solved in a brief explanation in just no more than 5 pages, out vanishsd a story pages long This novel exhibits the same level of lackluster class that Amn experienced in “The Stone Monkey”, both of them have nothing to do in terms of brilliance, entertainment and character drawing with early Deaver’s jefferry like acclaimed “The Bone Collector” or “The Devil’s Teardrop” Noteworthy, are however the remarks that deqver the world of magic, presented when the author tells the tale as if he were inside the mind of the main character, an illusionist and magician from Las Vegas Nov 07, Stephen Arnott rated it liked it Shelves: Although complaining about twists in a Jeffery Deaver thw is like complaining about murders in an Agatha Christie novel, I did feel they were overdone in this one; to the point where I stopped caring about various jeffey as I began to expect they’d get overturned a few pages later I was often right.
You can vanisbed ‘twist fatigue’ after a while. I would have shrugged. The stor Although complaining about twists in a Jeffery Maj story is like complaining about murders in an Agatha Christie novel, I did feel they were overdone in this one; to the point where I stopped caring about various revelations as I began to expect they’d get overturned a few pages later I was often right.
The story is also longer than it has to be. Deaver does meticulous research, but seems compelled to ensure that every iota of information he’s gathered ends up on the page. While interesting in itself, the background information often got in the way of the plot and I found myself skimming much of it.
The worst part, for me, was the climax. I mean, it really is very, very elaborate. For example, if you want to steal a watch out of a pawn-shop window, you could deavr smash the meffery with a brick and take it, or you could hire an actor to pretend that he’s the store owner’s long lost cousin, Lazlo who was thought to have died in a mysterious boating accidentwho then introduces his handsome young business parter to the owner’s daughter, whom he then seduces and marries, then fakes her death so that the owner has to go to her funeral, during which time vainshed homeless man who begs for pennies outside the store but who is really a world class jewel thief seeking revenge on the owner, who is actually his estranged step-brother takes the opportunity to enter the store and hide the watch inside a stuffed macaw, which is then purchased by an anonymous on-line buyer in Argentina
