Geneva Settle is a bright young high school student from Harlem writing a paper about one of her ancestors, a former slave called Charles Singleton. Geneva is also the target of a ruthless professional killer. Criminalist Lincoln Rhyme and his policewoman partner Amelia Sachs are called into the case, working frantically to anticipate where the hired gun will strike next and how to stop him, all the while trying to get to the truth of Charles Singleton, and the reason that Geneva has been targeted. For Charles Singleton had a secret - a secret that may strike at the very heart of the United States constitution, and have disastrous consequences for human rights today. And Sachs is going to have to search a crime scene that's 140 years old before she can stop the killer.

This was a very slow developing story. Authors should avoid deliberately extending a story by ineptitude of the characters;. the best shot in the police force has the bad guy dead to rights and misses. Police officers fumble with their weapons and almost shoot each other, police surround a building and the bad guy gets away-one thing the NYPD can do very well is surround a building-block-burough if necessary. This book was apparently written as a movie script and is about as believable as the average Hollywood offering.

This book felt different from the others in the Lincoln Rhyme's series, maybe because of the historic angle. Still, an entertaining read, fast-paced, with good characters

Another fun entry in the Lincoln Rhymes series. This time Lincoln and crew work to solve the attempted murder of a young girl and how it may be tied to criminal events from 1860s NYC. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way, which makes this an intense read.
