Friends this is my review of the book The Twelfth Card by Jeffery Deaver, which I read recently. This continues the saga of the criminalist Lincoln Rhyme. Sadly due to an accident Lincoln is trapped inside his paralysed body.
Though paralysed Lincoln uses his brilliant mind, extensive experience and his helpful partner Policewoman Amelia Sachs to track down and try to stop a hit-man who seems to be all out in killing the school girl Geneva Settle.
Geneva was working on a research project into her ancestors, when she was first attacked. She uncovers a 140 year old mystery. Lincoln and Amelia soon realise that to find the hit-man they have to first solve the 140 year old mystery.
This book is full of twists and turns that though obvious when looking back, are not at all clear until they hit you full on in the face. It is a story that will keep you in suspense right to the end, and with a string of plot twists, I am sure you will not be able to guess the final ending. To give much more away would spoil the numerous surprises that come along as one goes through the story.
This is a real page turner, and an outstanding thriller. Certainly one of the best that I have read in the last few months.
