A quadriplegic since a beam crushed his spinal
cord years ago, renowned criminalist Lincoln Rhyme is desperate to improve his
condition and goes to the University of North Carolina Medical Center for
high-risk experimental surgery. In a twenty-four hour period, the sleepy
southern outpost of Tanner’s Corner has seen a local teen murdered and two
young women abducted—and Ryhme and Sachs are the best chance to find the girls

The prime suspect is a teenage truant known as “the insect boy,” so
nicknamed for his disturbing obsession with bugs. Rhyme agrees to find the boy
while awaiting his operation. Rhyme’s unsurpassed analytical skills and stellar
forensic experience, combined with Sachs’ exceptional detective work, ensure that they soon snare the
perp. But Sachs disagrees with Rhyme’s analysis, and so ensues a battle of wits
and forensics between Rhyme and Sachs—best friends and soul mates.
