The Midnight Lock (Lincoln Rhyme Novel)

We rated this book:


Locks don’t stop him. He sneaks in, moves a few things around, and leaves. Or does he? Given the nickname the Locksmith, Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are put on the case. Until, that is, another case goes wrong and Rhyme is no longer welcome to consult for the police. That doesn’t stop him from tracking down the Locksmith, who is eerily familiar. But danger is lurking around every corner, for anyone involved in the case.

Within the first few chapters, I was confused. Then things began to make sense. There are too many cases running at the same time, many of which I didn’t think had anything to do with the main plot. I did figure out “whodunit,” only to find out that every briefly mentioned case is important, leaving me confused once more. There’s only one character I actually liked, everyone else was too perfect. The story is fair paced and the chapters short, so I did read a number of chapters in one sitting before having to take a break and come back later.
