I really wanted to like this. I've been a fan of the Rhyme novels, but the past few have had the "same feeling" to them. Someone kills someone else, Sachs goes and walks the crime scene. I've noticed that the crime scenes are getting longer and longer to read about. I mean, we're again treated to the reason why Sachs and whoever is with her has to wear bands on their shoes and again it's explained how and why they walk the grid (crime scene) the way they do. Do we needs this over and over and over again? I could only read a few pages at a time, then I'd get really bored reading it, and that's not a good sign.

I will admit that it was interesting to see electricity as a weapon, very interesting, and I did like that part about the book. It was a nice touch, and the only thing I liked about it.

For me, it was "more of the same"

I have read all of Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme books and have long felt that the duo of Rhyme and Sachs is one of the best in crime fiction. Having said that up front, I have to admit this was not one of my favorites. The author's infamous attention to detail and his trademark methods of ratcheting up the suspense were still there, and there were parts of this book that I really enjoyed. One of the big attractions of this series for me has always been the relationship between Rhyme and Sachs and their interactions with each other. This was pretty much gone from this book. These characters experience no change or growth; Sachs was a ghost flitting through the book just going wherever Rhyme pointed. Rhyme has more interaction with Thom, his caregiver than he does with Sachs and that interaction was always virtually identical to what we have seen in previous books. How many times do we have to argue about whiskey? There are a couple of efforts to advance the personal aspect of the story, but they seem token attempts at best and are only there to set up a teaser ending.

It's a common problem in series fiction that authors often spend too much time writing for readers that aren't familiar with the characters. I can see their reasoning, but it doesn't make things any less frustrating. I swear some of the dialogue in this book (in the beginning at least) is taken word for word from some of the previous books. The author spends alot of time going over things that followers of the series will already know. I'm not talking just about characters, I'm also talking about forensic basics I'd already learned from Lincoln Rhyme before! I don't remember this being such an issue with earlier Rhyme books, but maybe that's just my selective memory.

All of the information about electricity was certainly interesting. I learned quite a bit, however I sometimes felt that I was being lectured to by the characters. While I am a fan of learning, I am a bigger fan of a good strong narrative. The lectures and the narrative did not fit well together. Some of the dialogue here just did not work and had me shaking my head in disbelief. I wanted the characters to quit explaining things to me and talk to each other.

One thing that I felt was missing through most of this story was the presence of a truly creepy villain. A lot of the "drama" felt overwrought and manufactured; although on the flipside there were a couple of memorable moments at the end that I won't spoil here. I can't speak to the ending much except to say I was rather disappointed in the neat little package. Everything got tied up with a pretty little bow, but there is a teaser at the end that is sure to keep Rhyme fans coming back for the next one. I'm just not sure if I'll be back for the next one or not. It barely gets a three star from me just because I have loved this series for such a long time. Proceed at your own risk!

I am a big fan of the Lincoln Rhyme series, as it brings together many things I enjoy: mystery, csi, light romance, disability awareness, quality of life, caretaking, while always educating me on a new topic. In Burning Wire, the topic is electricity. I never knew how much I didn't know. I have a new respect for and appreciation for the topic. Sachs and Rhyme continue their partnership in solving a NY City terrorist killing via electricity while at the same time continuing to follow the Watchmaker case. I love a mystery where the end isn't predictible but is realistic. Deaver delivers again. Real characters solving a realistic situation. I sure hope he didn't give anyone any ideas though.

The Lincoln Rhyme books by Jeffery Deaver remind me of watching your favorite “crime solving” show on t.v. What I mean by that is, these books are all very similar. Almost too similar. They’re very good books, I just can’t help but feel like Deaver is basically telling us the same story over and over again. Same people, same issues, same personalities, same details, just a different killer with a different motive. Like a television show.
The criminal this go round is using electricity. That’s our topic for this book, boys and girls. We’re all familiar enough with electricity to know that we desperately need it to survive, yet most of us are a bit fearful of it as well. We know that touching one “wrong wire” can instantly kill us, and we’re smart enough to keep the hair dryer far away from a bathtub filled with water.

So, yes, our killer is using his expertise to cause panic and mass destruction around New York City, so Rhyme and his team must work quick to stop it. This is where things seem a tad redundant if you’ve read many other Lincoln Rhyme books. Part of the problem, I’m now realizing, is that the fact that Rhyme is a quadriplegic which basically means that every one of these stories seems to be confined to Rhyme’s apartment/lab, and every crime seems to take place in New York City. There simply isn’t much room for variety.
Plus, we have the same tired characters over and over again. There’s his partner Amelia – the beautiful redhead who’s arthritic, scratches her scalp until it bleeds, and somehow races cars through the biggest parking lot in the world. We have Pulaski, the young “rookie” who is treated like a pledge in a college fraternity by the ever grumpy Rhyme. There’s Stilleto, who’s never far away from a pastry, and Dellray, who goes under cover a lot wearing yellow leisure suits. And on and on and on. So, again, think of a television show with the same main characters every episode, and you get the drift.

These stories are also somewhat sequential. It’s best to read them in order. Our character’s progress somewhat, which is not necessarily a bad thing. I didn’t enjoy it, however, when Deaver includes unfinished business from the plot of older novels into this new novel. He’s done this before. It’s almost as if he’s trying to simply fill the space in the books.

Sadly, the plot twists that Deaver is famous for seem to be wearing thin for me as well. When one gets surprised over and over again, one stops becoming flabbergasted.
Had this been my second or third Lincoln Rhyme book, I probably would have enjoyed it much better than I did. I think, in the series, this was probably about the eighth or ninth, and I just couldn’t help but feel I was reading the same story over and over again. Deaver is good. He’s very good. Sometimes I wish he would give Rhyme and company a prolonged rest and tackle other subjects more often, though.
