Publisher's Summary

The 10th novel in the critically acclaimed Lincoln Rhyme series, from number-one best-selling author Jeffery Deaver.
They are calling it the 'million-dollar bullet': a sniper shot from a near-impossible distance. But there is no crime-scene investigation, no evidence, and no co-operation from the local Bahamian police. Ambitious New York district attorney Nance Laurel won't let it go. This murder has all the hallmarks of a contract killing, and she has evidence that the order came from the highest levels of the US government.
Putting her career on the line, she calls in independent investigators: Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs. No strangers to controversy, their reputation for seeing what others miss is unparalleled, and she knows they will risk everything - even their lives - to seek the truth.


What the Critics Say

"Jeffery Deaver is something of a summer tradition for thriller fans, and a Lincoln Rhyme novel makes for a bumper year.... Deaver's pacy prose is addictive enough to result in dreadful sunburn if read on the beach, so approach with caution." (Independent on Sunday)

Pedestrian story - enthralling performance

I try to be fair about Jeffrey Deaver but really, the last couple of books have felt like he was just 'phoning it in'. This book is fairly pedestrian but the performance is absolutely spectacular. Kerry Shale thoroughly enlivens proceedings with a huge range of voices and accents giving the whole story a gloss it perhaps doesn't entirely deserve. There are good books which don't really work as audiobooks, and some not so good books which work marvellously well as audiobooks. Frankly, Kerry Shale could make the telephone book sound interesting so I'm recommending 'The Kill Room' on the basis of this alone.

Off to search for books with Kerry Shale as reader.

Great Story, Didn't like new narrator.

As always the Lincoln Rhyme stories are great and I wanted to listen cover to cover. My only negative is the narrator. I've listened to most of the other Rhyme series and this voice was so so off putting. I'm about to start the next book, but if it's the same voice I will start something else as I don't think I could listen to more than the 4hrs I have already had of his voice!
