Tom, I did read The Empty Chair, and while I did enjoy it,I didn't feel that the storyline was as strong as THE Bone Collector. Lincoln Rhyme has a small part in the very exciting Deaver book,THE DEVIL'S TEARDROP, which I'd highly recommend.

A stranger is a friend you have yet to meet

For a long time I tried to get through "The lesson of her death" but I just couldn't get into it. Then I saw the trailers for "The Bone Collector" and found it intriguing. But I figured the movie would be too scary for me so I bought the book instead. And I loved it. So now I've read "The Coffin Dancer" too and liked that one just as much. I was really glad to hear there's another one out with the same characters.

Now I have a question that is probably really politically incorrect but I have to ask. Because I had seen Denzel Washington as Lincoln Rhyme that is how I pictured him. So now I wonder. Isn't Lincoln Rhyme in the book black? I'm just asking because it's happened before that I've pictured characters with one skin colour and then when a movie is made they have another. For example I was really surprised when Eriq LaSalle played Lucas Davenport because I had not pictured him as black.

Katarina I had pictured Lincoln to be white and like others thought that Christopher Reeve would have been superb in the role. I don't like seeing films of the book so can't say if DW was good or not. The Devil's teardrop was an excellent read and can't wait for the next book.Tom Lundregan where are you from? Is the empty chair out in the U.K?

I have read now, every Deaver book except Empty Chair. I TOTALLY, 100% agree that I definately did not picture Lincoln Rhyme as Denzel Washington. Poor choice. In my mind he was extremely handsome, dark hair, striking eyes, and white. Washington is an excellent actor, just felt he did not fit the description of Rhyme I created. Also, Deaver writes under a penname. I have read those as well. Found them to be somewhat mundane.

I guess it says something about a book of 434 pages when you finish it in one evening. ;-) "The Empty Chair" sure had me stuck in my chair. Deaver has a way of mixing detailed examination of forensic evidence with breath-taking suspense that makes his story credible, believable and exciting.

There were some rather sharp twists and turns to this story, perhaps a few too many, but Deaver still managed to connect the dots so that the big picture made sense. (I hope that made sense, it's almost midnight here. I mean that there were no un-logical constructions to make the ending fit the clues.)

Hey Mark! The Devil's Teardrop is my personal favorite by Deaver too! I have read it five times already in the last two years and it still packs a punch!

Short and unpronouncable ... and proud of it!!!

I finished A maiden's grave in one day. It was truly fascinating. So many things going on at once and every page surprised me again. Great book!

Mr. Deaver, I am reading The Lesson of Her Death. I really like it and cannot understand why the very beautiful Emily could only say "Ah, kiddo, ah, kiddo" right before she was murdered. I would love to hear from you. Sincerely, Barbara
