Wow - has it really been 20 years since we were introduced to Lincoln Rhyme in the Bone Collector? Since then there's been so many cases and adventures I was afraid Deaver would be fazing Rhyme out. Quite the contrary...the way I read this book - it looks like Deaver has something new in-store for Rhyme and Amelia. I cannot wait for the next book!

In The Burial Hour, Jeffery Deaver sharpened his pencil and delivered a strong, interesting and highly entertaining novel. If you are a dedicated Rhyme fan you will definitely want to add this to your collection. If you were once a fan and fell away from the series, this is a good book to get re-connected. If you've never read a Rhyme novel, The Burial Hour is a good introduction. (Of course after listening to this one you will want to go back and listen to the others.) The twists and turns are well placed, fit within the story and do not require a suspension of rational logic. The Italian characters are well rounded and very likeable. State prosecutor, Dante Spiro brings a laundry list of strengths both to the investigation and to the story. He's a perfectionist who makes it clear that he is in charge. Then there's Forestry Cop Ercole Benelli who seems to stumble into the investigation while on the trail of a counter-fitter. The back-drop for this adventure is Naples, Italy. One of the most beautiful cities in the world. Deaver paints Naples as meticulously as Lincoln Rhyme presents forensic evidence.

Simply put - The Burial Hour is a good book. Whether you're a Lincoln Rhyme fan or not, you'll enjoy this book.

Happy Listening,
