In New York City, the murder rate has just skyrocketed. There’s a killer on the loose intent on destroying couples’ most cherished moments. Now the indomitable Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are on the case. But will they be able to stop the butcher from striking again? Find out in The Cutting Edge.

Typically, when a criminal strikes Manhattan’s Diamond District, getting away with a stash of gems is the ultimate goal. But not this time. Not this morning. Today a killer known as the Promisor has something more malicious planned, to cut down happy couples during their most precious moments.

Everything does not go as the Promisor hopes, however. After slaying three new victims, a diamond cutter named Vimal Lahori is unintentionally left on the scene as a witness, and now Lincoln and Amelia must find him before the Promisor does.

Only Jeffery Deaver could concoct a story that could make happily engaged couples second guess marriage. But putting a target on the backs of star-crossed lovers will definitely do the trick. Add to the mix a terrified employee on the run, and we are in for a roller coaster ride of a novel that is impossible to put down.

Per the usual, I learned so much reading this book. Deaver always has something fascinating to teach me, and this time out is no exception. Here readers will come to understand things like how diamonds are cut and why earthquakes are formed.

Combining carefully researched material with unforgettable characters, Deaver delivers a book that makes us sit back and say “Wow!” But to fully comprehend just how fantastic this book actually is, you’ve got to pick it up for yourself. The Cutting Edge is classic Deaver!
