From his wheelchair, criminologist Lincoln Rhyme tracks the Watchmaker, a time-obsessed genius. With every passing second, the Watchmaker is moving with razor-sharp precision to his next act of perfectly orchestrated violence -- and Rhyme can't afford to have his trusted partner, Amelia Sachs, distracted by a daunting homicide case of her own.

    A killer is crippling New York City with fear. His weapon - the electrical grid. The killer harnesses huge arc flashes with voltage so high that steel melts and his victims are set afire, or he reconnects the wires in buildings, so that sinks, lamps, or computer keyboards, can kill. The first attack reduces a city bus to a pile of molten metal, and officials fear terrorism. Rhyme, a world-class forensic criminologist, is tapped for the investigation. Long a quadriplegic, he assembles NYPD detective Amelia Sachs and officer Ron Pulaski as his eyes, ears and legs on crime sites, along with FBI agent Fred Dellray. The attacks continue - the team work desperately against time. And whilst Rhyme¡s health falters - his determination could drive away his closest allies
