4.0 étoiles sur 5 He Keeps getting better. 14 avril 2011
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Fans of Lincoln Rymes will be delighted with Jeffery Diver's latest adventure where Ryhms must save New York from an electronic catastraphy. They'll also be happy to see the appearance of "the usual suspects" -especially Rhyms' lover, Amelia Sacks. Lincoln is called in after a city bus is electricuted by device planted in an abadoned switching house. More distruction is promised if the electric company fails to reduce it's suplly to the east coast. There are the usual twists and turns, booby traps and red hearings where Sacks comes close to getting roasted and the mayor worries but does nothing. If this isn't enough, Rhymes' old nemesiss, the Watchmaker, is still on the run and ready to undertake his own plans of major destruction. Finally Ryhms resolves all the threats and makes a major decision that will change the lives of all around him. Page turning suspense as we've come to expect from Jeffery Diner.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not my favorite 9 juin 2010
Par J. Prather - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I have read all of Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme books and have long felt that the duo of Rhyme and Sachs is one of the best in crime fiction. Having said that up front, I have to admit this was not one of my favorites. The author's infamous attention to detail and his trademark methods of ratcheting up the suspense were still there, and there were parts of this book that I really enjoyed. One of the big attractions of this series for me has always been the relationship between Rhyme and Sachs and their interactions with each other. This was pretty much gone from this book. These characters experience no change or growth; Sachs was a ghost flitting through the book just going wherever Rhyme pointed. Rhyme has more interaction with Thom, his caregiver than he does with Sachs and that interaction was always virtually identical to what we have seen in previous books. How many times do we have to argue about whiskey? There are a couple of efforts to advance the personal aspect of the story, but they seem token attempts at best and are only there to set up a teaser ending.

It's a common problem in series fiction that authors often spend too much time writing for readers that aren't familiar with the characters. I can see their reasoning, but it doesn't make things any less frustrating. I swear some of the dialogue in this book (in the beginning at least) is taken word for word from some of the previous books. The author spends alot of time going over things that followers of the series will already know. I'm not talking just about characters, I'm also talking about forensic basics I'd already learned from Lincoln Rhyme before! I don't remember this being such an issue with earlier Rhyme books, but maybe that's just my selective memory.

All of the information about electricity was certainly interesting. I learned quite a bit, however I sometimes felt that I was being lectured to by the characters. While I am a fan of learning, I am a bigger fan of a good strong narrative. The lectures and the narrative did not fit well together. Some of the dialogue here just did not work and had me shaking my head in disbelief. I wanted the characters to quit explaining things to me and talk to each other.

One thing that I felt was missing through most of this story was the presence of a truly creepy villain. A lot of the "drama" felt overwrought and manufactured; although on the flipside there were a couple of memorable moments at the end that I won't spoil here. I can't speak to the ending much except to say I was rather disappointed in the neat little package. Everything got tied up with a pretty little bow, but there is a teaser at the end that is sure to keep Rhyme fans coming back for the next one. I'm just not sure if I'll be back for the next one or not. It barely gets a three star from me just because I have loved this series for such a long time. Proceed at your own risk!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A disappointment 13 juin 2010
Par Oakleaf - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have loved the Lincoln Rhyme books for years. They were sharp, exciting, cerebral and made perfect use of forensic data to solve puzzles that ultimately undid the bad guy. Deaver was on my A+ list which is comprised of about 3 authors whose books I buy in hard cover. The books have been slowly getting worse and this one probably knocked him off my A+ list. Rather than being a hair ahead, Rhymes seems oddly distracted and ineffectual. And then there is the ending. Without giving anything away, it entails an enormous suspension of disbelief to buy the motive for all this mayhem. Far too complex. I gave it three stars out of product loyalty, but if it had been a new author for me it would have gotten less.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Time to end the series? 9 juin 2010
Par Reacher Creature - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I really wanted to like this. I've been a fan of the Rhyme novels, but the past few have had the "same feeling" to them. Someone kills someone else, Sachs goes and walks the crime scene. I've noticed that the crime scenes are getting longer and longer to read about. I mean, we're again treated to the reason why Sachs and whoever is with her has to wear bands on their shoes and again it's explained how and why they walk the grid (crime scene) the way they do. Do we needs this over and over and over again? I could only read a few pages at a time, then I'd get really bored reading it, and that's not a good sign.

I will admit that it was interesting to see electricity as a weapon, very interesting, and I did like that part about the book. It was a nice touch, and the only thing I liked about it.

For me, it was "more of the same"

3.0 étoiles sur 5 ENTERING THE CLOUD ZONE 27 septembre 2010
Par Red Rock Bookworm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
If a fast moving, exciting suspense thriller is what you're seeking, steer clear of Jeffrey Deaver's latest offering THE BURNING WIRE.

The ingredients necessary to infuse the story with drama are there. We have Lincoln Rhymes, a quadriplegic criminalist who lives in his mind once again matching wits with his nemesis, The Watchmaker. There is also a perpetrator attempting to bring an electrical company to its knees using electricity and arc flashes as his weapon of choice (particularly frightening when one considers that he attacks at random and his weapon (electricity) is in every home, office and commercial building). Added to the mix are some fairly interesting secondary characters like FBI agent Fred Dellray and inventor Charlie Sommers. Unfortunately, the story is cluttered with a plethora of peripheral information that inhibits its flow. Subjects like the electrical system in New York City, the use of regional grids, the symptoms and treatment of autonomic dysreflexia associated with spinal cord injuries, the pros and cons of "green energy", not to mention the repeated and never-ending practice of "walking the grid" and reviewing of evidence. Granted, little background information is always helpful, but Mr. Deaver has taken it to the extreme. After reading this book I could probably re-wire my house plus give a half way decent presentation on the care of spinal cord injury patients and the various treatments available to them.
Mr. Deaver in the future please give us more story and less instructional "filler". 2 1/2 stars

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Lacking Deaver's Usual Aplomb 18 juillet 2010
Par Martmun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The Burning Wire, a Lincoln Rhyme Novel was a thoroughly disappointing read to this fan of Deaver's usually spellbinding novels. I regret wasting the money on it, it was formulaic, ordinary, lacking plot, body, grit and, at the end, seems to degenerate into maudlin.
