Dangerously good. Distinctively Deaver. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs return to New York City to confront a killer terrorizing couples at their happiest—and most vulnerable. In the early hours of a quiet, weekend morning in Manhattan’s Diamond District, a brutal triple murder shocks the city. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs quickly take the case. Curiously, the killer has left behind a half-million dollars’ worth of gems at the murder scene, a jewelry store on Forty-Seventh Street. As more crimes follow, it becomes clear that the killer’s target is not gems but engaged couples themselves. The Promisor vows to take the lives of men and women during their most precious moments—midway through the purchase of an engagement ring, after a meeting with a wedding planner, trying on the perfect gown for a day that will never come. The Promisor arrives silently, armed with knife or gun, and a time of bliss is transformed, in an instant, to one of horror. Soon the Promisor makes a dangerous mistake: leaving behind an innocent witness, Vimal Lahori, a talented young diamond cutter, who can help Rhyme and Sachs blow the lid off the case. They must track down Vimal before the killer can correct his fatal error. Then disaster strikes, threatening to tear apart the very fabric of the city—and providing the perfect cover for the killer to slip through the cracks.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jeffery Deaver is at his graciously cruel best in The Cutting Edge…Rhyme may be the working brain on this crew, but hang on when his partner, Amelia Sachs, does her spooky-psych thing and projects herself into the mind of this sick killer.” New York Times Book Review
“[In] Deaver’s stellar fourteenth Lincoln Rhyme novel…the tension rises as Vimal tries to stay hidden, the killer hunts more victims, and the media receive a note from ‘The Promisor’ threatening the deaths of more engaged couples. Deaver keeps the twists and surprises coming in this roller-coaster ride of a thriller.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
