"A businessman snatched from an Upper East Side street in broad daylight. A miniature hangman's noose left at the scene. A nine-year-old girl, the only witness to the crime. With a crime scene this puzzling, forensic expertise of the highest order is absolutely essential. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are called in to investigate. Soon the case takes a stranger turn: a recording surfaces of the victim being slowly hanged, his desperate gasps the backdrop to an eerie piece of music. The video is marked as the work of The Composer ... Despite their best efforts, the suspect gets away. So when a similar kidnapping occurs on a dusty road outside Naples, Italy, Rhyme and Sachs don't hesitate to rejoin the hunt. But the search is now a complex case of international cooperation--and not all those involved may be who they seem. Sachs and Rhyme find themselves playing a dangerous game, with lives all across the globe hanging in the balance"--… (mer)

“The Composer, armed. Noose. Then a knife. Now a rifle.”

In this one, Lincoln and company go up against The Composer”, who believes that he is guided by Euterpe, one of the nine muses. Also, he “creates music videos of his victims dying.” With a noose around their neck. And he leads Lincoln and the rest to Naples, Italy.

“The Burial Hour” refers to the “asylum-seekers problem” in Italy. An anti-immigrant stance of people feeling that they are being “buried” by the migrants pouring into the country.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. I love Italy, so it was cool to have the gang working with the authorities there. And 'The Composer' was one interesting bad guy! Unfortunately, after he is captured, the book continues, and the plot goes into some international terrorism plot-thing that bored me to tears! My advice? Only read the first 56 chapters, then stop.

This is my second book by Jeffery Deaver and it's a good mystery, rather long in my opinion. Thank goodness for audio. It was great to listen to this book.

In comparison to his previous book, I prefer the previous plot. Too bad I can't get into why I was a bit disappointed with this one because that would spoil the mystery. I would love it more if it was just what it seems, without the other twist. ( )

I am just done with this nonsensical series.

It has just gone down the tubes for me since #11 (The Skin Collector).

That is three books in a row where not much is happening and too many coincidences drive the plot. Deaver doesn't even bother with trying to artfully explain the science in these books anymore. We just get regurgitation of facts and Rhyme acting like an asshole to everyone.

It doesn't help Rhyme and Sachs read like robots in this book. There is no there for me anymore between these two. Deaver wrote himself into a hole with getting rid of Sachs having issues with her arthritis.

Matters not helped by Deaver trying to turn these two into a super forensic spy team at the end. I don't even want to go there in future books. Let's pretend that the things they will end up doing will totally be legal and be allowed to be used as evidence.

The writing was not good and the flow was awful. I think that a good 1/3 of this book could have been deleted and you would not have missed anything vitally important. Why oh why Deaver did not just end on Rhyme and Sachs getting married baffles me. We go from what could have been a sweet/strong ending to the two of them solving another crime. I could not believe it. It just went on and on and I didn't care. I can see why so many readers started to skim this. It's your only defense to not fall totally asleep.

The setting of this book is moved from New York (after the first couple of pages) to Italy. The only thing you have to know about Italy is that Rhyme likes the grappa. Also he is still an asshole to everyone. We get a plethora of new characters that I stopped keeping track of after a while. Why we spent so much time in these people's heads is beyond me. I started calling one of the Italians the new rookie cause that's who he was the stand in for IMHO.

The ending as I already said just died on the vine. We go from a happy event to another crime with Rhyme and Sachs thinking a murder is about to occur. Cue new characters and a murderous lesbian and I just was done.

Love the characters - even the new ones and the way he writes ... but it was a little more out there than usual. I guess it was a little too easy-peasy but then, it fit the actual plot... eventually.

The whole concept is a tad frightening (and probably happening).

I'll read about Thom, Sachs and Rhyme (and hopefully, Ercole) any time. ( )

A good read with lotsa twists and turns. A sound freak the FBI and good detective work. ( )
