  Rhyme, a quadriplegic from a line-of-duty accident, must rely on his wits and Sachs's intuition to track the elusive murderer through the subways, parks, and the airports of an ever-tumultuous New York City, knowing they have only forty-eight hours before the Coffin Dancer strikes again...

  As good as it gets in the Lincoln Rhyme series, gripping suspense and trademark plot twists, along with a brilliant driven hero makes for an outstanding read...

A Painted House by John Grisham

  Until that September of 1952, Luke Chandler had never kept a secret or told a single lie. But in the long, hot summer of his seventh year, two groups of migrant workers, and two very dangerous men, came through the Arkansas Delta to work the Chandler cotton farm. And suddenly mysteries are flooding Luke's world. A brutal murder leaves the town seething in gossip and suspicion. A beautiful young woman ignites forbidden passions. A fatherless baby is born... and someone has begun furtively painting the bare clapboards of the Chandler farmhouse, slowly, painstakingly, bathing the run-down structure in gleeming white. And as young Luke watches the world around him, he unravels secrets that could shatter lives and change his family and his town forever....

  Was really taken off guard by this novel. Went into the read expecting the legal thriller Mr. Grisham is known for and came out with a story of childhood memories of life in the cotton fields. Excellent story and some great characters...
