The Burial Hour by Jeffery Deaver (May 2017)

The Burial Hour by Jeffery Deaver (May 2017)The only proof that a man was snatched in broad daylight is the account of an eight-year-old-girl - and the miniature noose left lying on the street.

A crime scene this puzzling demands forensic expertise of the highest order.  Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are called in to investigate.

Then the case takes a stranger turn: a recording surfaces of the victim being strangled, his gasps underscoring a piece of music.  The video is marked as copyright The Composer...

Despite their best efforts, the suspect gets away.  So when a similar kidnapping occurs on a dusty road outside Naples, Rhyme and Sachs don't hesitate to rejoin the hunt.

But the search is now a complex case of international cooperation - and not all those involved may be what they seem.  All they can do is follow the evidence, before their time runs out.
