  • "Deaver's excellent third novel featuring Kathryn Dance...[is] sure to please fans." ( Publishers Weekly (starred review) on XO).

  • "Deaver's infernal puzzle mysteries invariably inspire words like devious, diabolical, and devilish, all of which apply to XO. It's Dance's toughest case, and one of Deaver's best books." (The New York Times Book Review on XO).

  • "Not even the brilliant Rhyme can foresee the shocking twists the case will take in this electrically charged thriller." (Publishers Weekly, (Starred Review) on The Burning Wire).

  • "A taut psychological thriller from a masterful crime writer, proving Deaver just gets better with each new novel." (June 2010 Indie Next List Great Reads list on The Burning Wire).

  • "This eighth novel featuring quadriplegic forensic expert Lincoln Rhyme is one of Deaver's best...Deaver has outdone himself." (The Globe and Mail on The Broken Window).

  • "Deaver's scarily believable depiction of identity theft in a total-surveillance society stokes our paranoia. A -." (Entertainment Weekly on The Broken Window).

  • "One of the most unnerving of Deaver's eight novels featuring his quadriplegic forensic detective, Lincoln Rhyme." (New York Times on The Broken Window).

  • "Rhyme is one of the mystery genre's most interesting and out-of-the-ordinary series leads...As always, Deaver's dialogue is exceptionally realistic, and his plotting is devilishly intricate. Recommended for fans of the Rhyme novels (naturally) and readers who like their thrillers laced with wit and sharp characterizations." (Booklist on The Broken Window).
