This was a surprise choice as I didn’t intend to buy it or listen to it but again I had discovered a narrator that I liked and was searching for other books that he had narrated. The narrator in question is George Guidall who narrated American Gods by Neil Gaiman (another excellent book both in print and audio btw) He did absolutely brilliantly with all the many characters and accents in American Gods and he does terrific with this one too. I should explain that I have never read a Jeffery Deaver book though my friend Janien is a big fan and this book is number 6 or 7 in a series so probably not the best place to start but as I said, I couldn’t resist the lure of the narrator :p I think I may have forgotten this or perhaps I just wasn’t paying attention, but Jeffery Deaver wrote the book that the movie, The Bone Collector, was based on. I did see the movie when it came out a few years ago on DVD and it was ok, your basic serial killer mystery type movie, and it starred Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie.
The Bone Collector is the first book in the same series as The Cold Moon and features quadriplegic forensic detective, Lincoln Rhyme (played by Denzel in the movie, though I’m fairly sure the character is white) and his sidekick Amelia Sachs (played by Angelina in the movie). Anyway, I enjoyed this audio book so much that I decided to read the whole series! I bought the first four books for myself (happy christmas to me!) and the the first two for my BIL who also likes this genre but had never read any of Deaver’s books. Result!
