The Midnight Lock by Jeffrey Deaver

Reviewed by Cassidy Hammel (Library Staff)

I picked up Deaver’s latest title accidentally thinking it was part of his Colter Shaw series- which I highly recommend- however this is the latest installment in his Lincoln Rhyme series. I wouldn’t normally jump into a series on the 15th title but the description sold me. Women are waking up in their apartments to find their things rearranged, a chair pointed right at the bed as if someone had sat there and watched them sleep, a half eaten cookie or glass of wine on the counter. Someone, somewhere is capable of picking the most secure locks in the world leaving the citizens of New York more than a little worried.

Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are called to investigate the escalating crimes but when a rift occurs with Rhyme’s prior case, the NYPD question his judgement and become overly concerned with the optics in the public eye. They respond by firing Rhyme, their best chance to solve the case of the man who has dubbed himself “the Locksmith”

I enjoyed this book so much I have checked out the first in his series and am looking forward to many more to come.
