The Vanished Man Summary

The Vanished Man: Lincoln Rhyme Book 5 by Jeffery Deaver

A killer flees the scene of a homicide at a prestigious Manhattan music school and locks himself in a classroom. Within minutes, the police have him surrounded. Then a scream rings out, followed by a gunshot. The police break down the door. The room is empty. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are brought in to help with the high-profile investigation. For the ambitious Sachs, solving the case could earn her a promotion. For the quadriplegic Rhyme, it means relying on his protegee to ferret out a master illusionist they've dubbed 'the conjurer', who balts them with gruesome murders that become more diabolical with each fresh crime. As the fatalities rise and the minutes tick down, Rhyme and Sachs must move beyond the smoke and mirrors to prevent a terrifying act of vengeance that could become the greatest vanishing act of all.

The Vanished Man Reviews

'a brilliant thriller ... THE VANISHED MAN is page-turning stuff. A bestselling certainty'. THE BOOKSELLER 'Giddily entertaining ... This is prime Deaver' Publishers Weekly 'When it comes to sleight of hand, Jeffery Deaver could probably give most magicians a few tips on how it's done. The American is wresting the psychological thriller out of the hands of its acknowledged (female) English masters and giving it fresh impetus and excitement. It's well nigh impossible for a reader to predict the twists and turns. The question is not "when will I guess what's going to happen?" but "how will he manage to fool me again and again?" It's the usual roller-coaster ride of thrills, bloodspills and fear for the reader. THE VANISHED MAN more than earns its place on the shelf of "books that keep the reader on the edge of his chair." Not since Harry Potter last picked up his Firebolt broomstick has magic played such an integral part in a plot - or been so superbly handled. "You can't fool all of the people all of the time" is the old edict - unless, of course, you're master storyteller Jeffrey Deaver.' - Janice Young, Yorkshire Post 1.5.03 'crackling and compulsive' PUBLISHING NEWS 20030110 'Deaver on customarily sharp form ... Crackling and compulsive' - Barry Forshaw, Crime Time 20030110 '... the action is breakneck, the explanation of the tricks of the magician's trade genuinely fascinating and the relationship between Rhyme and Sachs is, as ever, movingly depicted.' - Irish Independent 20030110 'this is an astonishing novel, full of twists, turns and miraculous escapes.' - Waterstone's Quarterly 20030110 'Gripping stuff' - Big Issue, Australia 20030110 'The twists follow one another at a dizzying rate and when it seems that everything has at last been solved, Deaver has still another surprise up his sleeve ... enjoy' - Sunday Telegraph 20030110 'Teeth-chattering suspense' - Daily Mail -- Daily Mail 'The best psychological thriller writer around' - The Times 'Stunning' -- Scotsman 'the most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world ... [Deaver] has produced a stunning series of bestsellers with unique characterisation, intelligent characters, beguiling plots and double-barrelled and sometimes triple-barrelled solutions.' - Ray Chesterton, Daily Telegraph
