    1 thought on “The Skin Collector”

    1. Book Review:I'll start by saying that I've read some very good books by Jefferey Deaver: and those books are part of this series. I've handed out a few 5 star reviews for them and you should read them. And I can immediately conclude that thought by saying Jeffery Deaver has also written some bad books. This is one of them. If you look at the chronology of his writing career you'll find that long ago he wrote novels that in my opinion are mediocre. Then something happened. Deaver came out with hi [...]

    2. It's always a pleasure to read a new Jeffrey Deaver. The only problem is you have to finish, and then you enter a period of mourning. This is a classic Lincoln Rhyme thriller, it keeps you guessing to the end.

    3. Despite all the five star reviews of others, this one, to me, wasn't one of Deaver's best efforts. Maybe The October List left a bad taste, but the characters here seem one dimensional and the set-ups forced. To much was made of a connection to The Bone Collector that had nothing much to do with the main story line and seemed simply a way to set up a future book. Deaver can almost always come up with a nasty bad guy and doesn't disappoint there, but Lincoln and Amelia are beginning to get on my [...]

    4. A follow-up to the first Lincoln Rhyme story (The Bone Collector), in time honoured style it follows the tetchy forensic criminologist and his team as they chase down another bizarre murderer - this time one who tattoos his victims with poison. Some humour, lots of twists and regular recaps of the evidence captured so far. Yes, the format might be getting a bit tired but I do tend to take the view that if it ain't broke don't fix it. And ok, there are some unlikely deductions made by Rhyme and m [...]

    5. Ah, the joy! Ah, the discovery of a book that's enjoyable at the beginning, the middle, and the end! And ah, the thrill of the chase!Yes, folks, Jeffery Deaver has done it again: Created an interesting (exciting, even!) book - the latest in his series featuring quadriplegic criminalist Lincoln Rhyme and his friends, including the beautiful and talented Amelia Sachs. This one is even more special, it seems, because it involves a new killer who's apparently being inspired by the case that introduc [...]

    6. A serial killer is plaguing New York City. He creeps through the disused underground infrastructure of Manhattan which (unknown to most people) connects with the basements of various retail shops, restaurants, hospitals, office buildings, etc. Once the murderer snags a victim he tattoos him/her with poison ink, resulting in an excruciatingly painful death. The tattoos contain numbers and seem to be conveying a message, but the meaning is inscrutable. On the killer's trail is famous quadriplegic [...]

    7. My rating: 2.5 of 5 starsA woman is discovered dead in an underground passage after being tattooed by poison with only a partial message “The Second”. Is this the second victim or is it only a partial message meaning that more deaths are in the works? The killer, known as Billy Haven, is seemingly killing at random and is constantly two steps ahead of the brilliant NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme. It’s discovered that the killer has not only been researching Rhyme and Saches and their past ca [...]

    8. I like Lincoln Rhyme novels and enjoyed some of this book. I think Mr. Deaver is a bit tired of writing though as this seemed like eating the 11th cinnamon roll out of a dozen. The first couple are delicious. The next few are good, but by the end of the batch, they are getting stale. Normally he surprises me with twists and turns, this time everything was cliche. There were no surprises, no classic Deaver twists. Or if they were classic, I've read too many and they are all the same.

    9. I like Jeffrey Deaver's books but this one had no real tension and the plot just seemed to meander along. I never felt that either Rhyme or Sachs were in real danger and the subplot about the Watchmaker didn't make a whole lot of sense to me either. Lots of great books by him but this wouldn't have been a favourite.

    10. Jeffery Deaver's last book featuring Lincoln Rhyme, Kill Room, left me slightly underwhelmed. There was a lot of political comment in the book that I found myself glossing over. Deaver also took quadriplegic Rhyme away from his New York City townhouse to a crime scene in the Bahamas, but it just didn't work for me. It seemed forced and almost gimmicky. It was an okay read, but not a standout in the series for me. However, Deaver's latest book, The Skin Collector (#11) takes us back to what Linco [...]

    11. Jeffrey Deaver fans are rejoicing as the acclaimed author has brought us a sequel to his best known and voraciously read thriller The Bone Collector. In that novel we were introduced to Lincoln Rhyme, our country’s best known forensic detective. He’s clever, intuitive, and persistent when it comes to solving the most puzzling of crimes. Rhyme’s mettle is tested in The Skin Collector. There’s a killer on the loose in NYC, well, not literally on the loose because he prowls the underground [...]

    12. THE SKIN COLLECTORThe killer's methods are terrifying. He stalks the basements and underground passageways of New York City. He tattoos his victims' flesh with cryptic messages, using a tattoo gun loaded with poison, resulting in an agonizing, painful death.When a connection is made to the Bone Collector-the serial killer who terrorized New York more than a decade ago-Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are immediately drawn into the case. Rhyme, Sachs, and the NYPD must race against time to answer t [...]

    13. I am surprised the book is receiving some fairly glowing reviews. I have read all of the Lincoln Rhyme books--most of which are quite original and entertaining--but this one provides not a single new wrinkle, characters or relationships that have grown in the series, and a plot so reminiscent of The Bone Collector that I became bored quite quickly. I'm trying to determine if the author has lost his mojo or I just find his formulaic writing not to my liking any more. I'm guessing here but I bet t [...]

    14. NYC has a new butcher hunting for human prey. Unlike The Bone Collector, Billy Haven is only interested in Skin. He's not interested in flesh. Near SoHo, he takes his victims underground to tunnels and strokes and pinches their flesh before turning his lethal tattoo gun on.Rather than using ink, he uses deadly poisons. The messages are cryptic. Rhyme and Sachs don't have much trace evidence to lead them to the identity of the Skin Collector. He's studied the Bone Collector well. And Billy has st [...]

    15. The Skin Collector is the eleventh book in the Lincoln Rhyme series by American author, Jeffery Deaver. Criminalist Lincoln Rhyme and his NYPD associates, Amelia Sachs, Ron Pulaski and Mel Cooper are called in to investigate the case of a serial poisoner whose intentional clues left on victims’ bodies are baffling, to say the least. As well, news of the death of his latest nemesis, The Watchmaker, sees Lincoln sending Pulaski on a rather dubious undercover mission. Deaver gives the reader plen [...]

    16. The son of a bitch did it again. Deaver messes with your head in the most exquisite ways. His specialty is misdirection, followed by a plot twist that stuns and makes perfect sense both at the same time. And even when you know it's his gimmick, and you think you're all skeptical and are avoiding his traps, HE STILL GETS YOU!And this one is a double whammy with some especially satisfying plot twists. It's been promoted as "the long-awaited sequel to The Bone Collector, but I didn't find it a true [...]

    17. Not as good as some of his previous books, though I can't really pinpoint why. I kept waiting to be wowed by it, but I never was, even at the end. The how's and why's felt generic and somewhat forced. Not a bad read - even Deaver's worst are page-turners - but not my favorite of his.

    18. As a longtime fan of Jeffrey Deaver, I find having to write this review quite troubling. Mr. Deaver has long been one of the best writers for detective stories with Lincoln Rhyme and Katherine Dance (to say nothing of his early works with the handwriting analyst and others), but over the past few years, Mr. Deaver has developed a recurring theme I find distasteful and beneath him. (spoiler alert) The Skin Collector, which features a serial killer using tattoos and other modifications to kill his [...]

    19. A good read but with one glaring insane statement.A good read but with one glaring insane statementST TERRORIST ATTACKS ARE WHITE, CARD CARRYING CHRISTIAN CITIZENS? While there are many misguided groups out in the US, they are NOTHING compared to the Islamists we face. The deaths caused by these disturbed parties PALES in comparison with the 3000+ slaughtered on 9/11, and the unknown number still to come. I will NEVER read another Deaver book. Left wing propaganda disguised in a good read.

    20. Interesting story that completely turns around towards the end and connects a previous villain, no not the guy mentioned on the book's back cover but someone more recent sets up what will presumably be the next book??

    21. - Δεν θα στα χωρίσω σε κατηγορίες, θετικά-αρνητικά κι αυτό για έναν και μόνο λόγο, που ουσιαστικά αποτελεί και το μεγάλο μειονέκτημα, αν μπορούμε να το χαρακτηρίσουμε έτσι, του βιβλίου. Είναι το 11ο βιβλίο μιας σειράς και αυτό έχει το εξής αποτέλεσμα. Να μην έχουμε μια πλήρη, σα [...]

    22. To completely appreciate what this book involves you must not only have read The Bone Collector but every book in between as this incorperates a lot more than you realise unless you have read all of the Lincoln Rhyme series. Like every previous story this has a lot of twists and turns in the plot which will throw the reader from one direction of thinking to the next in the blink of an eye. As you progress through the pages you will think to yourself "Come on Lincoln, you must have realised this [...]

    23. Not much to say about this one except that I didn't enjoy it. I saw every plot point coming way before the author showed it. I don't get what Deaver's obsession is with (view spoiler)[the Watchmaker, but the character has passed the point of fascination. His link to the overall plot in this one was so not believable. (hide spoiler)]. I really wish that Sach's relationship with Pam would just go on the wayside. The character (Pam) is not vital to this series, and the constant fights about Pam's r [...]

    24. If you've read any Lincoln Rhyme books you will know that these books are always full of surprises. And you will know that the denouement is never until the very last page of the book. This book is no different. In this book Lincoln is after a new killer. And this killer leads Rhymes' team on a chase right into the bowels of the world of tattoo artists, body art and extreme body modification. There are numerous red herrings and false leads as Lincoln tries to see his way into the mind of this pa [...]

    25. I am a big fan of Jeffery Deaver, I have read almost all his books. I especially like his Lincoln Rhyme series and Katherine Dance one. Every book by Deaver is a great entertainment. The Skin Collector was not an exception.I really enjoyed the plot. Like all Deaver stories it was well developed and complicated. Even if I discover that I was right about the killer from the beginning, it was a great fun to come to this knowledge. But there was a tiny bit particle of a second when I was a little bi [...]

    26. My rating is a toss-up between a 3 and a 4. I really liked the book, but then, I always really like the Lincoln Rhyme novels (and no matter how he's described in the book, in my head he'll always be Denzel Washington). So, since this is on par with the other books in the series, I'm defaulting to a 3. Without revealing much, I will say that I was a bit jarred by the multiple endings. I guess they were pseudo-endings. But that's what makes these books brilliant. Just when you think "ok this is th [...]

    27. Although not the best work by Deaver I've read, I thought the story was well written. The plot was original, and the characters were riveting. In this thriller, Lincoln Rhyme is chasing a killer who is leaving notes inked onto victims chest. Each new victim is another piece of the puzzle. At first, Lincoln has a theory the skin collector may be linked to the none collector. As the story unfolds and the victims pile up, he realizes this isn't the case. This killer is more meticulous then then bon [...]

    28. I'm a bit disappointed with the way this book ended. I won't spoil the book, but the ultimate twist was one I don't care for in books, TV shows, or movies. The rest of the book, however, was every bit as good as the rest of the series, which is to say it was excellent.

    29. Reviewed First at Brunner's BookshelfThings in my life have been crazy the last few months.I had this book on pre-order as soon as it was available. I anxiously wait for it to arrive on release day so I could start it. I did and then never had time to read anything but audio books. Deaver is one of those authors I have to read every word of, I don't want to miss a thing and sometimes with an audio book I miss little bits. The whole time that this sat on my shelf partially read was driving me nut [...]

    30. I listened to the audio version of this book and it was narrated by Edoardo Ballerini. 'The Skin Collector' is the eleventh installment in Jeffery Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series.In this story, a serial killer is stalking his prey on the streets of New York City and once again, criminalist Lincoln Rhyme and his partner/love interest, Amelia Sachs have been brought in by the NYPD to consult on the case. The killer has been dubbed 'the Skin Collector' due to the fact that he murders his victims by c [...]
