商品の説明

内容紹介

It was a "million-dollar bullet," a sniper shot delivered from over a mile away. Its victim was no ordinary mark: he was a United States citizen, targeted by the United States government, and assassinated in the Bahamas.
The nation's most renowned investigator and forensics expert, Lincoln Rhyme, is drafted to investigate. While his partner, Amelia Sachs, traces the victim's steps in Manhattan, Rhyme leaves the city to pursue the sniper himself. As details of the case start to emerge, the pair discovers that not all is what it seems.
When a deadly, knife-wielding assassin begins systematically eliminating all evidence--including the witnesses--Lincoln's investigation turns into a chilling battle of wits against a cold-blooded killer.

レビュー

"Not even the brilliant Rhyme can foresee the shocking twists the case will take in this electrically charged thriller."―Publishers Weekly, (Starred Review) on The Burning Wire

"A taut psychological thriller from a masterful crime writer, proving Deaver just gets better with each new novel."―June 2010 Indie Next List Great Reads list on The Burning Wire

"This eighth novel featuring quadriplegic forensic expert Lincoln Rhyme is one of Deaver's best...Deaver has outdone himself."―The Globe and Mail on The Broken Window

"Deaver's scarily believable depiction of identity theft in a total-surveillance society stokes our paranoia. A -."―Entertainment Weekly on The Broken Window

"One of the most unnerving of Deaver's eight novels featuring his quadriplegic forensic detective, Lincoln Rhyme."―New York Times on The Broken Window

"Rhyme is one of the mystery genre's most interesting and out-of-the-ordinary series leads...As always, Deaver's dialogue is exceptionally realistic, and his plotting is devilishly intricate. Recommended for fans of the Rhyme novels (naturally) and readers who like their thrillers laced with wit and sharp characterizations."―Booklist on The Broken Window

1.1997年の『ボーン・コレクター』からはじまったリンカーン・ライムものは本作品が10作目となります。前作の『Burning Wire』が2010年の刊行ですので、やや時間間隔が空いているように見受けられますが、これは著者が、昨年(2012年)はダンスものの『XO(邦題:シャドウ・ストーカー)』を発表、一昨年(2011年)は『Carte Blanche』を発表したことによるのでしょう。

2.さて、本作です。前作『The Burning Wire』で、ライムは『The Cold Moon』以来の敵であったウォッチメーカーとの対決に終止符をうちます。本作品では序盤、ライムはニューヨーク検察から、アメリカの政府機関である「NIOS(National Intelligence and Operations Service)」を訴えることに力を貸してほしいと頼まれます。政府機関であるNIOS(の職員)が外国(バハマ)で行った3人の民間人の殺害事件。事件現場が外国であるということで、ライムは現地捜査当局の協力を得ようとします。しかし、そこには様々な壁が。ニューヨークの自宅を飛び出て、介護人のトム、そしてNYPDの「ルーキー」ロン・プラスキーと共にバハマに赴いたライムは現地で敵に襲われ、車椅子ごと水中に。。。

リンカーン・ライムシリーズ10作目。

今回は、アメリカ政府関係NIOSによる、「これからアメリカに攻撃を加える可能性の高いテロリスト」を殺害した行為が犯罪なのか、というなかなか難しくもあり、またかなり現実的な問題がライムチームに突きつけられる。

そして、証拠収集&分析の鬼、リンカーン・ライムにとってさらなる難問は、犯罪現場がNYどころか、国外バハマであるということ。

殺害されたのは本当にテロリストだったのか、捜査はどう進めるのか、証拠は集められるのか、相変わらず、ハードルを高くしながら、作者は余裕で読者を楽しませてくれています。

「Burning Wire」でも「The Broken Window」でもそうだったが、現実にこんなことがあるのかと思うと恐ろしくなるが、彼の作品ではそれらがとてもリアルに感じられる。アメリカのテロリスト対策が本当にこうだったら、いろいろな意味でとんでもないけど、あるかも?と読者を思わせる出来です。

ライムの体調は、初期のころに比べてだいぶ良さそうで(本作では意外なアクシデントもあり)ファンとしてもうれしいところです。

期待を裏切らない一冊。心憎いほどの、読者の心をつかむスリルは健在。毎回現代の技術を駆使した犯罪にはそのリサーチの巧みさが生かされて勉強になります。今回ライムは初めてアメリカから旅立ちます。
シャドウ・ストーカーでは歌曲に連動したお話でしたが、今回は料理のレシピがホームページにリンクしているらしい。話はどんどん国際的になるし、もちろんアクションも満載。
邦訳が待たれます!

5つ星のうち 4.0 #11 In The Rhyme Series Carries A Bit Of International Flavor 2017/1/5
投稿者 Ken T. - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This being #11 in the Lincoln Rhyme series, I’ve not found an installment which was disappointing. Being a quadriplegic, Rhyme is akin to a modern day Sherlock Holmes.
Mr. Deaver, long ago, has developed his cast of characters very well. In this novel we also have a driven ADA in Nance Laurel & a fictitious Federal agency, NIOS, which is headed by a not too level headed Mr. Metzger.
The book requires the reader’s focus since its wrought with twists throughout its content
The premise is government condoned and ordered assassinations. The victims seem easy to envision; or are they as obvious as they seem?

Lincoln takes a side trip to Nassau, scene of the first crime. There’s more international dealing in this book than in previous novels.
The story also touches upon Rhyme’s possible additional surgeries, as well as Sach’s decision to deal with her arthritic condition or being benched. There’s a good, welcome, diversion of the personal touch present here.

Truthfully, I could have done without the maritime scene in the closing pages. I didn’t think it a good fit and found it unnecessary. The very end is a conversation between Rhyme and Thom. It’s quite good, but comes upon the reader quickly.

All in all, another very fine work from Jeffrey Deaver.

5つ星のうち 4.0 The Kill Room is a Good Read 2013/11/19
投稿者 3 Dog Mama - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Jeffery Deaver is a master at conspiracy/murder mysteries! I have never read anybody who can weave more twists into a fascinating story as he can. Just when you think you know who did it, Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs will declare why that suspect couldn't have done it. With every new book he writes, we learn more about these two criminal investigators on a personal level. There is now less emphasis on forensics, but in this book there was no "main crime scene" (it would be a spoiler if I said why) so there could be no trace evidence. Meanwhile, someone is following behind the killer very successfully cleaning up clues and witnesses to leave Rhyme and Sachs even less evidence. I recommend it.
5つ星のうち 4.0 Another Must-Read Lincoln Rhyme Novel 2015/7/9
投稿者 Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Book 10 in the Lincoln Rhyme series, The Kill Room begins when Robert Moreno, and activist who is anti-American, is murdered while meeting with a reporter in the Bahamas. Someone in the US government has ordered the hit, and the reporter, who is an American citizen, is also killed and considered collateral damage. Lincoln Rhyme is called in to investigate, as well as Nance Laurel, an assistant district attorney. Lincoln has his usual team, including Amelia Sachs, and Amelia doesn't like or trust Nance. During the course of the investigation, Lincoln travels to the Bahamas, which is certainly not his style, but he feels it's necessary in this case. Amelia stays stateside. The murder is suspicious, and may have been a mistake, so the assassin, Jacob Swann, must eliminate any evidence and also anyone connected to the case. Lincoln, Amelia, Nance, and other members of Lincoln's team are targeted.

As is Deaver's style, the novel is suspenseful from the start, and doesn't let up until the surprising ending. Deaver's story is well-organized, easy-to-follow, and there are enough twists and turns to keep readers on the edge of their seats. Not only is Deaver a master storyteller, he has the remarkable ability to make his characters come alive without long, drawn-out descriptions. Most fans have seen Lincoln, Amelia, et. al. change and evolve through the novels; and in The Kill Room, Nance's character, with her frailties, insecurities, and strengths becomes real. One of the most interesting characters in this novel is Jacob Swann. Not only is he an extremely skillful assassin, he is also an accomplished chef, especially proficient with knives, and cooks to wind down after his kills. So besides being on the edge, readers will be subject to mouthwatering descriptions of what Swann is eating; luckily the recipes are published on Deaver's website (www.jefferydeaver.com).

One thing that was a little distracting in this novel is the overuse of acronyms; it seems there were too many to keep track of and at times they became a little confusing. However, as is Deaver's style, this novel is well-researched and well-written. Deaver publishes new novels often, but they are not sloppy and they do not have issues left hanging. Deaver is one of the most skilled suspense/thriller writers today, and this novel is highly recommended.

5つ星のうち 4.0 A plot taken from today's headlines 2013/6/26
投稿者 dch822 - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This is the first book that I've read in the Lincoln Rhyme series - I'd seen the movie version of The Bone Collector, but never read the book - and I came away very impressed.

The issues surrounding the plot in The Kill Room are straight from today's headlines: the government spying on and assassinating American citizens and using UAVs to carry out clandestine operations. In the book, a NY prosecutor wants to charge government officials with murder after they assassinate an American citizen. The author does a good job of posing questions worthy of debate without taking sides on the issues - it's a novel after all - and these issues make for a very compelling plot.

As I read the book, there were a couple of instances where I felt the author was trying too hard and went a bit over-the-top on some things when if he'd just left it alone the plot by itself was enough to carry me through the book - however, I'm glad I stayed with it because after a couple of twists and turns near the end, I'm pleased to say the "trying too hard" bits were actually tied up quite nicely and made much more sense.

At the risk of giving a couple minor spoilers ... there were some things that I didn't like: I got tired of reading the recipes used by the bad guy who leaves a trail of bodies from the Bahamas to New York. I get it. He likes to cook. He likes to carve meat. But I could have done without the blow-by-blow accounts of how he prepared his favorite meals. In the back of the kindle edition there is even a link to the author's website where you can download all the recipes used in the book. That's kind of funny I guess, but whatever.

I guess the rest of this is just being picky but I'll mention it anyway because the author is obviously a great writer and researcher and he gives incredible detail on nearly everything ... but there's a scene in the book where an IED blows up a Manhattan coffee shop to destroy any evidence that might be on the security system's hard drive. The IED renders the hard drive completely useless in terms of evidence - it's in a million melted pieces. And yet ... in less than six hours from the time of the explosion: Lincoln's sidekick, Sachs, recovers trace evidence that yields a SINGLE grain of sand that is analyzed back in their "apartment lab" and identified as having originated in the Bahamas, thus clearly linking two crime scenes to one perp. Well that's impressive ... but I'd have preferred more detail on how they found and isolated and tested one grain of sand in such a short time (on a NY sidewalk no less, after a horrific explosion ... and how did they even know to test this grain of sand, that it was the one grain out of surely millions that was relevant to the case?) rather than the endless paragraphs about carving knifes and mixing ingredients to form the perfect meal.

Another one that was kind of silly is when a UAV pilot launches a Hellfire missile at a bad guy, only to realize a split-second later that there are innocent people at the target as well. What does he do? In less than ten seconds, he does all of the following: disarms the missile, puts the UAV on autopilot, takes over control of the missile so he can fly it off target and crash it away from where it could harm anyone, then because he can't tell what the terrain is like from the camera mounted on the missile (he's worried he might crash the missile into someone's house), he opens his Firefox web browser, goes to Google, pulls up a terrain map for the exact coordinates where the missile he's flying is currently at, and then flies the missile for the next five seconds while looking back and forth from Google to the image being broadcast from the camera ... yeah, seriously. It did make me wonder about his Internet provider. That piece of information I could use, because for sure I'd switch providers to get that kind of browsing speed.

Anyway, there are several of these moments that take away from what is otherwise a great plot, good characters, and terrific writing. That being said, I thought the book had a really good ending and I have to say that overall I really did enjoy reading The Kill Room.
5つ星のうち 4.0 Complex and unpredictable to the end 2016/2/7
投稿者 Phil (not) in Magnolia - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This is a well written and complex novel that pits Lincoln Rhyme and his team against an undefined killer or conspiracy of killers that does not clarify itself until the very end.

Less time is spent in developing the personalities of Rhyme and his allies than in many novels of this type. Instead there is the ongoing and complicated struggle to unravel what is behind a series of murders, in order to shut them down before more are committed. It's not a straightforward or easy journey but ultimately (and in the nick of time) they do prevail.

More character development might have been worthwhile although the story works just fine as is. I have read several of the previous Lincoln Rhyme novels, but not all, and it's a series that I will continue to enjoy.
