Revue de presse

Brilliant . . . it's easy to get swept up in the sheer velocity of the action (Scotsman)

The most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world . . . [Deaver] has produced a stunning series of bestsellers with unique characterisation, intelligent characters, beguiling plots and double-barrelled and sometimes triple-barrelled solutions. (Daily Telegraph)

The pace is terrific, the suspense inexorable, and there is an excellent climax . . . If you want thrills, Deaver is your man. (Guardian)

Présentation de l'éditeur

COPYCAT? OR REVENGE?

They have never seen a murder like it.

A talented tattoo artist is using poison instead of ink. His victim is a young woman. And on her skin he's left a message: 'the second'.

Drafted in to investigate, NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme and his associate Amelia Sachs find the scene has been scrubbed of evidence.

All except for one trace - a scrap of paper that connects this case with one they will never forget.

And like the Bone Collector before him, Rhyme and Sachs find themselves pitted against a twisted serial killer choosing his victims seemingly at random, a perpetrator who plans his work to the last detail, in a deadly contest with any who try to stop him.

But how close is his connection with that old case? What is the meaning of the words tattooed in poison on the skin of his first victim? And where will he strike next?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 DEAVER - A MASTER THRILLER WRITER 14 mai 2014
Par Gail Cooke TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Format Kindle
Jeffrey Deaver fans are rejoicing as the acclaimed author has brought us a sequel to his best known and voraciously read thriller The Bone Collector. In that novel we were introduced to Lincoln Rhyme, our country’s best known forensic detective. He’s clever, intuitive, and persistent when it comes to solving the most puzzling of crimes. Rhyme’s mettle is tested in The Skin Collector.

There’s a killer on the loose in NYC, well, not literally on the loose because he prowls the underground passages in Soho, just south of Greenwich Village. These tunnels crisscross the neighborhood - at one time used for transporting goods they’re abandoned now and perfect for the use of a mad killer, Billy Haven.

Billy doesn’t violate his victims, flesh is of no interest to him; “...it was skin that Billy loved.” To test it he would pinch a girl’s skin between his thumb and forefinger, admiring the small peak of skin that is raised and then allowed to flatten back. The sight of this would make him smile. But, of course, this was before he tattooed his victim’s flesh with mysterious messages using a tattoo gun filled with poison. Death came slowly and painfully.

Eventually a connection is made between Billy and the Bone Collector, the infamous serial killer of a decade ago. Thus, Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are drawn into the case. What follows is one shocker following another as Rhyme and the NYPD work against time to try to figure out where the killer will find his next victim and what in the world the seemingly indecipherable tattoos mean.

Readers won’t doubt that they’re in the hands of a multi award winning thriller writer, a master of the genre after just a few pages of The Skin Collector.

Enjoy!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well, I didn't see that coming! 14 mai 2014
Par Lisa Baker - Publié sur Amazon.com

And that, and that, and that. Picture a roller coaster slowly going up, click, click, click, then you're at the top and falling fast, turns, more turns, upside down and all of a sudden it's over and you are just shaking your head and wondering what happened. That is what reading THE SKIN COLLECTOR feels like.

It is written in typical Jeffrey Deaver fashion: plots, protagonists, lists of clues and then more twist and turns until it is finally over. It is almost like the show 24, but crazier. If you are a Jeffrey Deaver fan you will LOVE THIS BOOK.. If you are not, you will still love it. My only gripe is that I bought it yesterday, the day it was released, and in 24 hours the kindle price dropped 5.00. Still worth every penny though.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As always wonderful. 14 mai 2014

Jeffrey Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme and Dance books are one of only a handful of book series I devote my limited space to in my "library" with the purpose of re-reading. Although I may have liked other Deaver's books a bit better, Deaver's books are still so much consistently better in writing, fast-placed, intricate, challenging and informative plots than the majority of suspense novels out there, they demand a five star rating.
It is also important to note that reading this novel will provide a much better understanding of his next novel, as this novel also sets the scene for his next one.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A return to the crime solving I enjoy 21 mai 2014
Par Luanne Ollivier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Jeffery Deaver's last book featuring Lincoln Rhyme, Kill Room, left me slightly underwhelmed. There was a lot of political comment in the book that I found myself glossing over. Deaver also took quadriplegic Rhyme away from his New York City townhouse to a crime scene in the Bahamas, but it just didn't work for me. It seemed forced and almost gimmicky. It was an okay read, but not a standout in the series for me.

However, Deaver's latest book, The Skin Collector (#11) takes us back to what Lincoln Rhyme does best - and the type of story I like best - solving cases based on the evidence and minutiae gathered at a crime scene by his team. And Lincoln's superlative powers of deduction.

The Skin Collector opens with a wonderfully creepy scene that introduces us to the perpetrator, Billy. It's one of those chilling prologues that promises a great read. And it delivered. Billy is a tattoo artist who delights in finding pristine skin for inking his cryptic messages. And his choice of ink is deadly. Billy Haven is clever - he's studied Rhyme's methods and leaves little if anything behind at his scenes. Yes, plural - Billy has a plan and it looks like he's taking inspiration from Lincoln's first case - The Bone Collector.

Deaver employs the history of New York and it's tunnel and underground passages to great effect in The Skin Collector. I ended up checking out many of his references online - it's pretty fascinating history.

I thought I had predicted where the plot was going to go about three quarters of the way through the book. But I was pleasantly proven wrong! Deaver inserts a twist, then a turn, then another twist - and I think there may have been another turn. There was one plot element that I found tawdry and icky and somewhat unnecessary involving Billy's aunt. But on the whole, it was an inventive storyline. Part of it is taken from current new stories, making it plausible and relative. The ending finished on a nice little aha, leaving the door open for further entries in a parallel story line. (Yes, I'm being deliberately obtuse)

Familiar characters return - I'm growing quite fond of Ron Pulaski - and some interesting supporting players were introduced. I hope we see more of tattoo artist TT Gordon. 'Foster' daughter Pam can move away though. I find her attitude tiresome. Amelia is still razor sharp, but seems to have mellowed since solidifying her relationship with Linc.

The Skin Collector was a return to the Lincoln Rhyme I enjoy. It's a good crime read, one to tuck in the beach bag this summer.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good in the beginning, ridiculous towards the end. 20 mai 2014
Par BruinsFan - Publié sur Amazon.com

Warning: Spoiler Alert!!!!

I'm giving this book four stars because, for the most part, it was a decent read. However the convoluted attempts to tie up the story in the end were borderline absurd.

Spoilers!!!!
We have a tattoo artist using poison to kill victims which turns out to be a red herring for a larger terrorist attack by a right wing militia group which turns out to be a cover for an elaborate scheme to break the Watchmaker out of prison with the end game of derailing Lon Sellitto so he can't investigate a mueseum break-in? Seriously? Why not just send a hit man to take care of Sellitto and be done with it?

I appreciate that Deaver isn't trying to be a paint-by-numbers mystery author, but sometimes less is more. Lincoln is smart, but some of the deductions and parallels he made had me rolling my eyes. Nobody is THAT good. I also wish he would stop being so mean to the people on his team. If I had to work with a jerk like him every day I'd be ready to jump off a cliff.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 My least favorite Lincoln Rhyme so far... 27 mai 2014
Par John Covington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It appears to be a swing and a miss for Deaver on this latest installment of the Lincoln Rhyme series. I would actually be surprised to find that this wasn't written by somebody else, as the tone and arc seemed very "off " compared to earlier works. Lincoln has been difficult to deal with in the past, but was really just a prick to everybody in The Skin Collector, and not for any particular reason. Also, Amelia's attitude towards other people and her cavalier attitude to almost plowing people over while she is driving doesn't ring true to earlier stories. It's not like the characters are evolving or growing, and I'm sorry to see the quality of Deaver's work decline.
