They range in this novel from the extreme his detective here, Lincoln Rhyme, is a quadriplegic who can move only one finger to the moderately eccentric beautiful policewoman Amelia Sachs, who acts as Rhyme's arms and legs, suffers from arthritis. And his villain, a serial killer who models his crimes on ones he finds in a book on criminal life in old New York, has an uncomfortable way of slaying each of his victims in ways guaranteed to stop the heart or turn the stomach: buried alive, flayed by high-pressure steam, eaten by hungry rats, burned alive, attacked by mad dogs. All this takes place in the course of one busy New York weekend as the killer helpfully leaves playful little clues as to where he's going to strike next and Rhyme uses his immense savvy and a battery of computerized testing tools to figure it out. The whole affair, in fact, is incredibly silly, though the headlong narrative, with Sachs arriving in the nick of time driving at 80 mph through New York streets to perform rescues that seem to belong in a comic strip rather than a novel, never lets up, and there is plenty of genuine forensic knowledge in evidence. There are dramatic switcheroos up to the very last page, and a climactic battle to the death that might make even teenage boys wince. For it seems to be at that kind of readership--uncritical and doting on violence--that the novel is aimed.

After Stanton is taken away, Rhyme is convinced to assist in another investigation, and accepts the offer under certain conditions, such as that he is allowed to continue working with Sachs.

Characters[ edit ] Lincoln Rhyme — Quadriplegic forensic criminalist who was the head of IRD the NYPD's Central Investigation and Resource Division before being involved in an accident at a crime scene where an oak beam fell on him, crushing his C4 vertebrae and leaving him only able to move from his shoulders up and his left ring finger.

At the start of the novel, Lincoln is considering suicide with the help of Dr. William Berger, a representative of a pro-euthanasia group called the Lethe Society, until his ex-partner Lon Sellitto arrives at his apartment asking for help on a kidnapping case. Amelia Sachs — year-old police officer who is about to be transferred out of patrol.

However, on the morning of her transfer, she is called to a possible homicide where she finds the first victim of the bone collector. Her work at this crime scene catches the attention of Lincoln Rhyme and she reluctantly becomes his "legs and eyes" as he takes on the case of the Bone Collector.

He is a twenty-year veteran and the ex-partner of Lincoln Rhyme. He has also been given the unenviable task of persuading Rhyme to work on the case. Thom Reston - Lincoln Rhyme's full-time care assistant. Sequels[ edit ] Following the success of this novel, Deaver continued to feature Rhyme and Sachs in a series of subsequent novels.

He faces a villain here who is just plain nuts, who lives in the past and works his evil in historic ways on victims who he believes are also in the past.

This leads our hero to the books - history books, that is.

Get to know the man and his team. Lincoln Rhyme is a very intriguing character in his own right. Amelia Sachs is a great cop in her own right and it took the meeting of a lifetime with Rhyme to challenge her mindset and infuse confidence in her abilities to round out her ego so she can symbolically and literally drive faster.

I'm looking forward to completing the rest of the series.

The rest of the characters on the team are just as memorable because they all have issues of some kind that compliment and each other. Who doesn't love Thom! I totally loved the movie but the book is in my opinion worthy of binge reading the collection.

Saw the movie and enjoyed it very much. Decided to read the book as a prelude to the other books in the Lincoln Rhyme series. Expected the book and the movie to be very much the same and was pleasantly surprised that they weren't.

The book was far better than the movie and the characters were even better in the book. This is the first Lincoln Rhyme mystery and it was coincidentally the first I read in the series. Liked the protagonists I include Amelia Sachs with Lincoln, as she is pivotal to the story and the mystery was very engaging.

A crime novel about a killer who uses old crime novels as inspiration; me being a literary type, this appealed to me greatly. Have only read the second novel, so can't speak as to the whole series, but I'm looking forward to moving on with it in future. One person found this helpful.

The Bone Collector was a fast-paced, can't put down read that kept me reading well into the night!! I can't wait to read the next book! Lincoln Rhyme is a quadriplegic now, since his accident while in the police force.

Thom, his aide, is designated the task of adding annotations to a poster, basically detailing what they know about Unsub Unknown Subject - so far. Mel Cooper, turns Rhyme's bedroom into a mini lab, so he does a lot of tests on the samples collected by Sachs' from different crime scenes.

The Bone Collector

The Hardy Boys, Bedding and Saul - do the canvassing, and they're skillful in interviewing people who live close to crime scenes - and Sachs' is Rhymes eyes and ears - and isn't too pleased about it; as she was supposed to be transferring to Public Affairs at noon, for a training session - and she's been waiting eight months for this reassignment.

You've got words like: Limo'd, brother'd, whatta, myself'd, this's, offa off of , figger figure , grounds're, dincha didn't you , he'd've, ever'body, to've, etc. So that took some getting used to, as well.
