The New York Times–bestselling author reflects on the life and career of his character, NYPD forensic scientist Lincoln Rhyme, in this short story.

The line between the disabled and the non-disabled is shrinking. Computers, video cameras, high-definition monitors, biometric devices and voice recognition software have moved my life closer to that of somebody who’s fully able bodied, while the same technology is creating a more sedentary, house-bound life for those who have no disability whatsoever. From what I’ve read, I lead a more active life than a lot of people nowadays.

Winner of multiple awards including the Edgar Grand Master, Jeffery Deaver presents a tale and a brief biography of the quadriplegic crime-scene expert who provides his services to the New York Police Department—as well as federal and international law enforcement—from his well-equipped home lab on Central Park West . . .

“The master of ticking-bomb suspense.” —People

“Rhyme is a great character.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“The Lincoln Rhyme series is simply outstanding.” —San Jose Mercury News


“[Rhyme] is among the most brilliant and vulnerable of crime fiction’s heroes.” —New York Post

About the Author

Born outside Chicago in 1950, Jeffrey Deaver received a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and became a journalist. He then received his law degree from Fordham University and practiced for several years. A poet, he also wrote his own songs and performed them around the country.

The author of twenty-two novels and two short story collections, Deaver’s works have been translated into twenty-five languages and is a perennial bestseller internationally. Among his many honors and nominations are six Edgar Award nominations, three Ellery Queen Reader’s Awards for Best Short Story of the Year, the 2001 W H Smith Thumping Good Read Award for The Empty Chair and the 2004 Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award from the Crime Writers Association for Garden of Beasts.

In addition to his popular and critically acclaimed series about the brilliant quadriplegic detective, Lincoln Rhyme, he has written more than a dozen standalone suspense novels.

His first Lincoln Rhyme novel, The Bone Collector, was made into a film in 1999 starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. A Maiden’s Grave was turned into an HBO movie retitled Dead Silence, starring James Garner and Marlee Matlin.

He lives in Chapel Hill, N.C.
Jeffery Deaver (b. 1950) is an American author of thrillers. Born near Chicago, Illinois, he practiced law before writing his first novel, Manhattan Is My Beat, in 1988. This story of Rune, a video-store clerk who investigates a client’s murder, established Deaver’s talent for psychological suspense. He wrote two more novels starring Rune before moving on to Shallow Graves (1992), which introduced location scout and amateur sleuth John Pellam. The Bone Collector (1997) kicked off a long-running series starring paralyzed detective Lincoln Rhyme; this debut title was made into a film starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie in 1999. Deaver alternates his Rhyme novels with standalone books such as Garden of Beasts (2004) and Edge (2010), as well as a series about body-language analyst Kathryn Dance. In addition to his success as an author, Deaver is an accomplished folk musician, and recorded an album to accompany XO (2012), the third Kathryn Dance novel. He lives in New York City.
