What you need to know before your trail

The modern world can be an easy and exciting place to be – not to mention safer – you can check the oven is turned off when you’re on holiday, you can call someone on the other side of the word. Remote control your car, your life.

But someone can also tap into that technology and control YOUR car, turn on your oven and control YOUR LIFE.

Detective Amelia Sachs is hot on the trail of a murderer, chasing him through a Brooklyn department store, when the escalator traps a man inside and in the horror which follows, the suspect manages to flee.

A freak accident or something worse? For as the body count grows, more deaths occur in the most everyday situations. The most everyday products are being used as death traps..

Lincoln Rhyme has his toughest case yet..

Travel Guide


A shopping mall in Brooklyn as you have never seen it before and will never want to have a shopping trip turn out this way. Probably the most traumatic visit to one you’ll ever know. Into a Starbucks and then hell breaks loose. The Brooklyn Heights promenade – where the suspect man is spotted


The rest of the cat and mouse game this novel takes you on is one of the varied streets of the Brooklyn area of New York and Manhattan. “Sometimes you catch a break” the novel’s opening lines says. Well, you’d better enjoy a moment to breathe before Jeffery Deaver takes you on a whirlwind tour of this part of the city which is described as “ an urban sprawl populated by ten thousand camouflaging souls” the Centre Street police station is at the centre of the investigations.


Escalators in shopping malls, blunt instruments used for even blunter killings. Items of steel – consumer appliances – used against those who buy them. The shoppers who are controlled by them, the status of having them are now being controlled by their materialism and greed.
You will never look at a remote in the same way again.
