Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are back in the 14th installment of the Lincoln Rhyme Series, The Cutting Edge, by bestselling and award-winning author Jeffery Deaver. Vimal Lahori, a young man who works for a popular diamond cutter, walks in on a triple homicide – his boss and an engaged couple - and is able to escape. However, the murderer wants to tie up loose ends, and searches for Vimal with the intention of killing him too. Lincoln and Amelia, (Amelia has a new large diamond herself, which puts her at risk) get involved in the investigation as other engaged couples are murdered. The murderer is dubbed “The Promiser,” and causes a bit of panic in the area.

Lincoln Rhyme readers will welcome this installment of the series. Deaver’s storytelling skills are excellent, as usual, and his beloved characters are true to form. Deaver has the ability to build suspense throughout the novel, and keep readers on the edge of their seats. There are dozens of twists and turns, and a surprise ending, as is the norm for Deaver.

Another positive aspect of this novel is the information about the diamond industry, and it is apparent that Deaver has actually done his research, resulting in interesting facts as a bonus to a good story. Just because a novel is fiction, doesn’t mean there aren’t things to learn, and this book is a prime example. Jeffery Deaver and his Lincoln Rhyme Series enjoys a huge following, and this novel is not one to miss.
