FIRST EDITION. Softcover in Good Condition
Lincoln Rhyme, the renowned criminalist from The Bone Collector and The Coffin Dancer, faces his ultimate opponent: a kidnapper and murderer dubbed the Insect Boy. But Rhyme is in for a surprise when he learns that catching a criminal is one thing ... keeping him is another. Now Rhyme finds himself hunting a ruthless killer in the heart of a southern swampland--and going head-to-head with his protégé, Amelia Sachs, in a rivalry that tests the limits of both their expertise and their love.
With intricate forensic detail, breathtaking speed, and masterful plot twists, THE EMPTY CHAIR is a page-turning suspense from "the current master of pure detection" (San Jose Mercury News).
