I learned so much about the circus, magic acts and magicians I loved it The circus happens to be a favorite of mine, minus the clowns Lol Great JD book
I can honestly say I am surprised that I loved this book I thought the last two Rhyme books were seriously off and I didn t even know if I could continue with this one, but I did Glad I bought it We have Rhyme and Sachs investigating a case in which a murderer has someone escaped from what appears to be a locked room The they investigate, the they find themselves embroiled in the world of magic and illusion I got a kick out of this book since Deaver sprinkles little gems throughout regarding s [...]
8 10A return to form for Lincoln Rhyme in an exciting novel that fell away at the end but that didn t detract from the interesting premise and gripping story from the off The last couple of novels in the series fell a bit flat but this one was back to its best with multiple plot links going on at the same time, teasing cliffhanger chapter endings and an evil villain who is killing people off in a fashion of famous magic tricks, sorry, illusions The thing with reading a number of Jeffery Deaver n [...]
Roller coaster Real roller coaster of a book Starts off well, gets better and better until it peaks about 2 3 through Then drops off quite dramatically, until all of a sudden it becomes brilliant again The description and explanation of the magic and illusions is beautifully done So many twists and plot changes, really need to concentrate Next Lincoln Rhyme book here I come.
The Vanished Man is book Five of the Lincoln Rhyme series by Jeffery Deaver Lincoln Rhyme team became part of the murder investigation into the death of three young people under strange circumstances The readers of The Vanished Man will follow Lincoln Rhyme and his team to see how they found the killer.I enjoy reading The Vanished Man More I read the books in this series the I love Jeffery Deaver s portrayal of Lincoln Rhymes and his aid Thom I have only Jeffery Deavers does a great job in ensu [...]
VANISHING QUALITYThe plot is long, convoluted and enthralling, however having read most of Jeffrey Deaver s work and realizing that he really entertains in all his stories as a master of the wild twist , I can see that in this book he has abused too much of this resource, losing the magic that makes readers gasp Particularly I agree with another reader Mr Gavin H from Sidney, Australia below that the way Malerick , the bad guy of this story, fakes his dead and makes his way out of tight police c [...]
By far, Jeffery Deaver is the one author with that uncanny ability to develop plot twists and very complex characters that leave you stunned to the end If you ve seen the movie, trust me, the books are far ingenious and developed as compared to what we were presented with on the silver screen The Bone Collector is a series novel starring Lincoln Rhyme, our famous forensics expert bound to his bed and mobile wheelchair.Reading this novel I am reminded to never commit a crime The art of forensics [...]
Ein bezeichnendes BuchVon Edgar Wallace wird kolportiert, dass w hrend der dreit gigen Rundumdieuhr Sessions in denen die Romane des Altmeisters entstanden, regelm ige Whodunnit Sitzungen mit dem Hauspersonal und s mtlichen anderen Angeh rigen statt fanden Und jedes mal, wenn jemand den T ter erraten hatte, dachte sich der Autor prompt einen neuen aus Die Liste der Danksagungen am Ende eines jeden Lincoln Rhyme Romans legt eine hnliche Vorgehensweise beim Meister der berraschenden Wendungen nahe [...]
This was one of my favorite in the series so far Deaver does it again an intriguing and fast paced thriller with a storyline that captivates page after page.
Although complaining about twists in a Jeffery Deaver story is like complaining about murders in an Agatha Christie novel, I did feel they were overdone in this one to the point where I stopped caring about various revelations as I began to expect they d get overturned a few pages later I was often right You can get twist fatigue after a while If, at the end, Lincoln Rhyme had torn off a rubber mask to reveal he was actually Pee Wee Herman, or Meryl StreepI would have shrugged.The story is also [...]
Addio monsieur Deaver Come fu, tanti anni or sono, con Mr Follet, pi tardi con il Sig Piazzese, anche in questo caso siamo giunti, sono giunto, al capolinea Finecorsa Evidente, almeno ai miei occhi, l inserimento di parti intere scritte dai collaboratori, appunti di ricerca copincollati senza alcun intervento d autore Evidente, lo sforzo metodico di costruire a ogni costo, a tavolino, una storia intorno al mondo dell illusionismo, anzich articolare con gusto un intrigante spunto originale Fastid [...]
A music school student is murdered and the killer flees into a locked classroom with no way out When the police break down the door, the killer has vanished Criminalist Lincoln Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs are called in to investigate It doesn t take them long to figure out the police were duped by the killer, whom they name the conjurer due to his magical feats in escaping The conjurer leads the police on a meandering investigation as he continues on his killing spree, leaving behind bits [...]
This one had some twists I did not see coming Even some, misdirection , if you will People I thought were involved weren t, and people I didn t think were involved, were One of the better installments in this series.
I got this book at the store book exchange at the store I have coffee at I enjoyed reading it It had a good story to it I hope to read books by this author.
I really wanted to give this book five stars but the quick change had too much black yellow brownface with this Kara.Otherwise, GREAT book.
How different this one was I am a Jeffery Deaver fan and especially of the novels involving Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs though I do love the Kathryn Dance ones as well Usually Lincoln Rhyme is the expert who can figure out the physical evidence but in this case, he and Amelia need the help of a young woman Kara who is a budding magician who works in a magic shop because the killer the Conjurer is a professional magician who leaves plenty of dead bodies but no evidence and uses famous and obsc [...]
So having gone on vacation again it was time for me to pick another thriller to read Now, in rating said thriller, The Vanished Man, I realized that at 5 stars means you found a book to be amazing While this book pales in comparison to my last vacation thriller, staring the super genius albino plays by his own rules detective of The Cabinet of Curiosities, obviously the most amazing book possibly ever, this one stars a quadriplegic super genius cranky forensic scientist and his ex model flame ha [...]
Bored and looking for a quick, fun read, I turned to Vanished Man Deaver s novels have a lot of twists and surprise endings Yet because they are all like this the structure almost becomes predictable I like the Lincoln Rhyme series Rhyme reminds me of the main character on the t.v show House He lacks social skills and has a dry sense of humor but he really knows his field In fact, it s his knowledge and methods of arriving at conclusions that reel me in The killer in this storyline is able to es [...]
I enjoyed this book a lot but this is going to be a brief review because I don t want to give anything away I like Jeffrey Deaver and have read a few of his books, so I knew what to expect with this Although because of the topic of the book he used a lot of magic terms names of tricks and things which was good because it added to the overall feel of realism.The only problem I have and why I didn t give it 5 stars is because there is one twist that doesn t make sense at all Twists have to be poss [...]
I started this book not expecting to like it I am not a big fan of magic or illusion and since most of this book is based on illusion I thought I would be bored But Deaver delivered Great bookfull of twists The only thing I did not like was that I could not keep myself from thinking of the actors that played the characters in The Bone Collector
This is one of the best suspenseful books Deaver wrote In all of his books so far, you never know what will be on the next page, but this one kept me on my feet even than the others Deaver is an author that makes you wonder where he comes up with this stuff.
George Guidall is one of the world s best voice actors I love everything he does But even he could not save this one I found it boring and repetitive Lincoln Rhyme is equally as brilliant as he was in the first four volumes Amelia Sachs is as diligent and dogged in her attack of the crime scenes But the plot of this one just derailed I fell asleep twice while listening I did not like this antagonist or the illusionist storyline I found him odd and disturbing, but not intriguing or compelling I h [...]
ExcitingA story about magic which has so many twist and turns that make you keep turning the pages a great book
SO GOOD so many clever twists Best crime book I ve read in a while and that s saying something
I found Jeffery Deaver s fifth Lincoln Rhyme novel, The Vanished Man , to be an exceptional and exciting read It was an excellent rebound from the last couple of books in this series Rhyme and Sachs are called into investigate the murder of Svetlana Rasnikov, 24 a music student who was murdered in a locked room where the killer had no way to escape but did vanish Quickly after the first kill, the second victim pops up with his watch smashed similar to Svetlana s The victim Tony Calvert 32, never [...]
Psychological thriller writer Jeffery Deaver s modern take on the classic locked room mystery is an exciting and twist filled readThroughout history, mystery writers have made their livings on misdirection the very best are literary conjurers who entertain an audience, dangling clues and red herrings in front of readers before alakazam , hitting us with a reversal or reveal that we never entirely see coming no matter how closely we watch to cap off their show.So what better villain for a twisto [...]
Our first Lincoln Rhyme interesting look at magicians We ve read only one other Deaver novel The Blue Nowhere so had not previously met Rhyme, the author s quadriplegic forensic expert from four prior books, and featuring his sidekick Amelia Sachs and a few other regular supporting characters from the NYPD and FBI What captured our attention almost immediately was the subject matter magic and magicians and the similarity to Rex Stout s long running Nero Wolfe series Indeed, Rhyme reminds us a lo [...]
I am reviewing the procedural thriller The Vanished Man which is a very good thriller written by Jeffery Deaver and which I bought at a car boot sale This novel came out in 2003 and is part of the Lincoln Rhyme series The plot a kind of warped magician who does magical tricks like escapology but leaves dead victims and mysteriously makes a getaway His first victim is a young lady who is hog tied with knots dating from Houdini s day which are virtually impossible to undue With the fashion he has [...]

This was my very first Jeffery Deaver book out of the order, I know, but I didn t at the time and I absolutely adored every word of it It is quite possibly the cleverest and most suspenseful book I have ever read, usually in mystery crime thriller books it is possible to work out who the perp is and what they are upto, if you work at it With this book, I had absolutely no idea whatsoever what was going on, and it was astonishingly well written.The entire story captivated me, it was one of those [...]
