The Bone Collector

She wanted only to sleep.

– first sentence

 

So, this is the original Lincoln Rhyme novel – the first in a long series. I have read others, but I don’t remember reading this one. I chose this book because I needed a book written between 1900-1999 for Snakes & Ladders. Finding one on my tbr was a bit harder than I thought but I managed.

 

Lincoln Rhyme is not particularly likable, even when you take into consideration that he is a paraplegic (and is entitled to be a bit angry). Meeting Amelia Sachs was interesting and I liked seeing how her relationship with Lincoln developed. The story is good, though not particularly original – serial killer taunts the police as he kidnaps and sets up elaborate murders scenes; sometimes the would-be victims are rescued, sometimes not. The killer’s identity is a bit of a surprise so that part is good.

 

Overall, good story and I’m glad I read it. I will have to watch the movie again now.

 

I read this for Snakes & Ladders space #28. Written between 1900 and 1999 (it was published in 1998).
