Booklist Reviews 2018 May #2

A killer is using New York City as his hunting ground, apparently targeting people who are soon to be married. But it's not about the marriage; the Promisor, as he calls himself, looks to be fixated on a symbol of marriage: diamonds. When the killer unintentionally leaves a witness alive, criminalist Lincoln Rhyme races against time to find the young man before the Promisor does, but complicating matters is a series of explosions that appear to be caused by earthquakes. Could the quakes somehow also be the work of the Promisor. Who is this faceless killer? What is his real plan? As usual, Deaver keeps us guessing right up to the novel's final moments, layering on puzzle after puzzle, dropping clues into the story so subtly that trying to spot them all is pretty much an exercise in futility (but an awfully fun exercise). Highly recommended for the author's legion of fans, of course, but also for the increasingly small number of readers who have—for some inexplicable reason—not yet made Deaver's acquaintance.

At the start of Thriller Award–winner Deaver's stellar 14th Lincoln Rhyme novel (after 2017's The Burial Hour), William Sloane and Anna Markam, an engaged couple, enter the jewelry store of Jatin Patel, a master diamond cutter who works in Manhattan's diamond district, to pick up a ring. Unfortunately, a gunman wearing a ski mask is right behind them. After the intruder shoots William and Anna dead, he tortures and kills Jatin with a box-cutter. Vimal Lahori, an employee, arrives at the store, takes a shot in the side from the killer, and manages to escape. Rhyme and his usual team—Det. Lon Sellitto of the NYPD, lover Amelia Sachs, patrol officer Ron Pulaski, and lab expert Mel Cooper—investigate. The tension rises as Vimal tries to stay hidden, the killer hunts more victims, and the media receive a note from "The Promisor" threatening the deaths of more engaged couples. Deaver keeps the twists and surprises coming in this roller-coaster ride of a thriller. Five-city author tour. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary Agents. (Apr.)
