“In this latest novel featuring the quadriplegic criminologist hero and his amazing support team, they find themselves faced with tracking down a high tech villain whose agenda is murder, by means of high voltage electricity that can melt steel, electrocute his victims or set them afire. A taut psychological thriller from a masterful crime writer, proving Deaver just gets better with each new novel.”

Bestselling and award-winning author Jeffery Deaver brings back fan favorite duo Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs with the plot development that everyone's been waiting for...

Quadriplegic forensic criminalist Lincoln Rhyme has been fully paralyzed since listeners first met him. His partner Amelia Sachs has been his eyes, his ears, his legs, and even became his paramour somewhere along the way. In The Burning Wire, his wrenching debate about undergoing risky treatment to improve his condition is finally resolved--a decision that threatens to derail his most important case to date...and to have even more dire consequences.

Energy is on everyone's mind--from renewables to the price of oil to the controversy over nuclear power. The Burning Wire finds Rhyme, Sachs, and the cast of characters from Deaver's earlier novels in a breathless two-day race to stop a twisted killer, whose horrific weapon of choice is the very energy that powers our lives.
