- At long last, New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver returns with his next blockbuster Lincoln Rhyme thriller -The Skin Collector- a true sequel to his best known novel, The Bone Collector. In his classic thriller The Bone Collector, Jeffery Deaver debuted Lincoln Rhyme-the nations most renowned investigator and forensic detective.

Rhyme must untangle the twisted web of clues before the killer successfully targets any more victims-or Rhyme himself.

About The Skin Collector:
The 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 the many questions the investigation uncovers: Whom will the killer attack next? What is the message behind the victims' tattoos? Does the killer's own inking-a fanged centipede sporting a woman's face-hold any significance? And what is his ultimate mission?
