This title is another Lincoln Rhyme novel. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with this one. The Empty Chair was simply not a very thrilling thriller. Especially after reading The Bone Collector and The Coffin Dancer. However, I think Jeffrey Deaver is a great author and I enjoy reading his books. This one just happened to fall flat for me. The pace never picked up to reach page-turning craziness. Instead the story line plodded along with characters who were as uninteresting as the plot. The few twists and turns that were thrown in were predictable. Deaver created a wonderful character in Lincoln Rhyme. A brilliant criminologist confined to a wheelchair due to an accident that turned him into a quadriplegic. Hopefully, The Empty Chair was a fluke. I look forward to picking up the next Lincoln Rhyme novel.
