This was a “million-dollar bullet,” that a sniper shot delivered by more than a mile off. Its prey wasn’t any ordinary markers: he had been a United States citizen, directed at the USA government, and assassinated in the Bahamas.
The country’s most renowned investigator and forensics expert, Lincoln Rhyme, is drafted to investigate. Even though his partner, Amelia Sachs, traces the sufferer’s measures in Manhattan, Rhyme leaves the town to chase the sniper himself. As details of this situation start to emerge, the group finds that not all is what it seems.
Every time a fatal, knife-wielding assassin begins systematically eliminating all signs–including the witnesses–Lincoln’s investigation turns into a chilling battle of wits against a cold-blooded killer.
