At 9 am on 31st December a man gets onto the packed escalator of a metro station and fires a silenced machine gun through a paper bag. He escapes without being spotted in the confusion caused by dozens of killed and injured people. A note is delivered to the mayor of Washington, D.C., demanding $20 million, or the writer will instruct the gunman to strike again, at 4.00, 8.00 and midnight. The mayor decides to pay up. But then a man is killed in a hit and run accident - his fingerprints match the prints on the note. With the brains behind the operation dead, there's no way of stopping the gunman killing again, and again, and again... The only thing the FBI have to go on is the note. And Parker Kincaid, forensic document expert, is the only man who can stop the killer.… (plus d'informations)

“The Digger looks like you, the Digger looks like me.” “ - ..., a functioning human being who does nothing but kill.”

And the Digger is being chased down by Parker Kincaid, a handwriting and document analyzer par none! And the title of the book comes from his work - it is “an unusual mark above the lowercase ‘i’s’ - the tail of the dot went straight upward, so that it resembled a falling drop of water.” Nice huh? An expert, much like Lincoln Rhyme, who has a cameo appearance starting on page 122!
I really enjoyed this book, and it read quickly with good action and pacing! The Digger is a great 'bad guy' and the plot twists were unexpected, and enjoyed, by me! The ending totally worked for me too! For me, throw out the love story and the subplot with the witness protection guy, and this edges up to 5 stars!

I absolutely *love* the story idea behind this book, but I just couldn't get through it. Why?

The writing style. He used short phrases. Bits and pieces. Not whole sentences. Added suspense? No. Not at all. It was annoying.

Imagine that for hundreds of pages. No thanks! If you can get past that (or maybe listen to the audiobook), I think it could make for a really interesting book. It's just not my thing, though. ( )

After a machine gun attack in the Washington, D.C., subway system leaves dozens of people dead, retired FBI document examiner Parker Kincaid must track down the assassin with the aid of only one clue-a ransom note demanding twenty million dollars to stop further massacres.
  Hans.Michel | Sep 13, 2013 |
A stand-alone novel with a short and welcome appearance of Lincoln Rhyme. The two main characters here are Special Agent Margaret Lukas,in charge of her first big case and Parker Kincaid,who is an expert forensic document examiner. They are pitted against a killer known as the 'Digger' who is literally controlled by a criminal mastermind. The killings take place on New Year's Eve 1999 and increase in intensity as time progresses.
The two criminals are well invented and the idea behind the crime is a good one. The Kincaid character however comes over as rather a dull dog and somewhat of a wet.
The final verdict is that although this is not one of Deaver's best efforts,it has quite a lot going for it and is definitely worth reading if only to re-meet,albeit briefly,Lincoln Rhyme. ( )

An "invisible" man fires a machine gun in a crowd killing dozens of people and leaving no evidence. The police receive a handwritten note asking for $20 million by midnight or more people will die.

Parker Kincaid, a retired FBI document examiner, is asked to consult on the case. He hesitates because his ex-wife has returned to request joint custody of their two children. Parker received full custody of the boy and girl when they divorced due to his ex-wife's horrible lack of parenting skills on the condition that he did not put the kids in danger with his job. So he retired and became a full time dad with a home business. Parker joins the case only if the FBI can guarantee his anonymity.

This was not one of Jeffrey Deaver's best, but it was still pretty good. There were a few twists that I didn't guess. Lincoln Rhyme makes a guest appearance. ( )

A thorough analysis of an anonymous latter may greatly reduce the number of possible writers and may at once dismiss certain suspected writers. The use of a semicolon or the correct use of an apostrophe may eliminate a whole group of writers. - Osborn and Osborn, Questioned Document Problems
