The title of Jeffery Deaver's new Lincoln Rhyme thriller immediately sends my mind into Silence of the Lambs territory:
The Skin Collector's title is an obvious nod to The Bone Collector, the very first Lincoln Rhyme novel and Deaver's 1997 debut, which was made into a movie starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie.
And with good reason: The new serial killer at large was inspired by the Bone Collector and has developed a way of murdering people through poisonous tattoos. Lincoln Rhyme is joined once again by Amelia Sachs, and they race to catch the bad guy as more and more people fall victim to his sadistic methods.
